Shion's Sleight of Hand

New Frontiers*



Currently a work in progress idea on a competitive Shion deck.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cards I plan on running but have yet to acquire:2x Adombrali, the Unfathomable1x Celestial Wing Seraph1x Fallen Angelic Destroyer, Lucifer1x Heavenly Instrument, Hydromonica1x Hymnal's Memoria3x Ruler's Memoria2x Grusbalesta, Magic Stone Researcher


So the past week I have tested the deck and it has preformed within a large range of my expectations. In total it has played a variety of decks with various outcomes:

Mercurius Control- Lost tempo due to Rising from the Depths + Captain Hook Combo. Shackles of Ice may end up being useful in slowing the tempo of Mercurius.

Dark Alice Destructor- ended in a draw due to time constraints.

Sylvia gill Palarilaris Ramp- Surprisingly efficient in stopping Sylvia's tempo.

Sun Wukong Control- Once more lost tempo due to Captain hook + Green Ramp.

Mar's Burn- Outspeed completely with shion's ability to plan ahead and deal with problematic burn spells.

Alisaris Burn- Mixed results. Ended in draw thanks to surprise life gain. Barrier seal can harm Shion's recycle.

Valentina's dark Fantasy- Gained superior tempo to Valentina. Swept both rounds with flying presence. Valentina's Ruler abilities are problematic.

I like this deck idea and think it has some potential to make some noise.

I would put in at least 2 stones that help produce Moon to use Lucifers life gain effect, if that is what your going for.
