Home > Decks > Decks: Hand Air (Origins 2004 multiplayer tournament finalist)
[posted 8 Jul 2004]

Braz King made it to the finals of the Origins 2004 multiplayer championship tournament with this deck. Thanks to Braz for providing the deck list!


Hand Air (for Yao Ming), 69 Cards or so

This deck is one of my attempts to build a competitive "big site structure deck". It relies on mobility, denial and healing to defend the site structure and superleap to take sites.

It struggles against hitter decks and I will reluctantly add Buddha's Palm and likely squeeze in a Blood of the Valiant, replacing You Have Offended Shaolin which ends up redundant as I always chose Righteous Heaven Stance for weenies and most of the bigger boys already Leap on their own.

The two City Parks are gone now, replaced by Fireworks Factories and I'm just now adding in the new garden-loving Monk… I love you Righteous Bro, but these dudes kick it harder.

I'm very unhappy with the Secret Headquarters. It becomes the most luscious target on the board and nobody minds an opponent getting it away from me. It ends up making my opponents more power than it does me. I'm going to replace it, but not sure with what.

The revised version of this deck will take it to the Purists next year. LOL!
