Post Draw engine deck help
So the other night I was pulling cards with the draw a card type stuff and I pulled so many out. The only problem im at a stump of what to do with the idea I never played any draw a card type cards.

Sorry I dont know how to link cards but heres the list I was lookin at last night

Daedelia
Back ally tavern
Meet at the inn
Hassimal
Dragons hoard
Toren yscar
Rollen watts
Darsan
Conjuration
Veild passing
And vorpal blade

Now I know there some like darsan isnt draw a card and he hits wounds nicely is there anyway I can make some what of a challange killer deck out of this make it competitive someway and what faction do I go with on this route. Why do I need so many draw a card, cards. What am I trying to draw?

Thanks


Edit im looking at feyd rowan and is feats of being a rogue wizard and claric I feel like that is nice for tech?

Are you building this for Open or Ancients?

Am I understanding you correctly:

1) You want to draw out your deck.

2) You want to kill using golden gun card.

3) You want this deck to be Open.

4) You want to use Feyd Rowan as your Warlord.

Well, that's not hard. You have good classes and you're an Elf.

Stuff I'd put in the deck:

Characters:
Daedelia
The Lost Bride
Hassimal
Elemere
Toren Yscar
Viktor Amak

Actions:
Back Alley Tavern
Trade Routes

Items:
Nodwick
Portable Hole
Cloak of Many Things

Assemble the Golden Gun/Protect the Golden Shot:
Fell Blow
Veiled Passing maybe Precision
Vorpal Blade
Light or Glyph of Fate
Johan Halfblood
Wand of Negation

So, I'd consider something like this:

1 Feyd Rowan
1 Viktor Amak
1 Elemere
3 Amatria Tansiq/Quadlibet/Javvyn (your preference)
3 Toren Yscar
3 Daedelia
3 The Lost Bride
3 Light
3 Treyik
2 Johan Halfblood
2 Children of Yscar

3 Trade Routes
3 Back Alley Tavern
2 Fell Blow
2 Veiled Passing
1 Precision

3 Limited Wish
3 Vorpal Blade
3 Portable Hole
2 Cloak of Many Things
2 Nodwick
1 Glyph of Fate
1 Wand of Negation

Ok I see whats going on here. Now what if I didnt use feyd (I alway hated him haha I know he is a beast tho. What other warlord can do something along the same lines. Im not lookin for any deck list tho first one was cool to see mechanics and learn. What about goza bomb? How well does that idea work? Conjer storm goza and Sir'Kan?

Goza would have more moving parts than other golden gun strategies because you have to find her where as most golden guns like Sakar and Necromancers start with the character they need in play.

Another golden gun deck that works well is Contal using Trebuchet starting x2 Brel. You can run cards like Rain of Fire, Chosen (you have Good and Evil starting clerics), and Light to make it sure it hits/does enough wounds.

So, I know most of these cards, but I really recommend using card tags so the cards you're listing are visible upon clicking them (like Wall and Axe). Is this supposed to be a 4E deck? Whether it's Open or Ancients or 4E affects my advice a lot. Do you know what Bascaron's Favor does? I don't see anyone who can cast it.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that but meant to. You type (card)Card Name(/card) with brackets [ ] instead of parentheses ( ).

I don't know a lot about Scyrax, but I do know:

1) You have a lot of Shadow Tokens. You need probably 0. If you feel it's necessary, you might use 1.

2) You should play Ring of Vorn at least 1. It's very useful when you have so many guys that want to hit the second rank. With all the back-up wizards, I think 2 is the right number for RoV - draw it more often and make use of extras.

3) You might have better success being less all-in on the Goza plan and being a little more well-rounded. I think you'll win more games overall if you focus less on Goza and instead just have demolishing someone with Goza be a thing that can happen in the deck rather than have it be the focus. Replacing Sir'Kan with Kul of Clan Tergoth, Rica O'Shea, or NoThRoG Cavalry might be a nice switch in this direction. You could cut a Flamespitter for a Machine of Lukkot and a Dor of Clan Manaka for nothing (you've got 26 characters listed) so that your second rank doesn't get overcrowded.

4) Bascaron's Gaze is not 4E legal. You might consider replacing it with Teleport.

5) You might actually cut back a bit on your spend orders.

6) Pike Cart is an excellent starter. Possibly better than Gunda.

7) If your absolute dream is to do something nasty with Goza, then ignore most of what I've said and figure out the best way to assemble her Conjure Storm combo. But if you are just looking to make a Scyrax deck that is consistent, cut back on a few of your spend orders, consider the changes I mentioned, and play some more items. Necklace of Spellstoring, Charreon, Shroud of Lost Souls, Chime of the Aerie, etc. provide a lot of value in a grindier game where you get to activate them multiple times.
