What We're Playing: Joey Senart

Built originally as a joke from a deck building challenge from Flesh and Bones, Cheerios emphasizes Kavdaen's trader class and ensures he doesn't actually have to pay for anything. With all cards at a healthy zero cost, the deck is surprisingly powerful, aggressively chaining cards without having to waste time with this pitch nonsense while surprising the opponent with bombs such as Enlightened Strike and Exude Confidence. As time is money with Kavdaen, don't expect any defending here. Just get in, get out, and get on with life! As for his ability? Well...he doesn't really have time for that either. I mean...it's cute but...we'll say I traded that ability to enjoy an insanely fun, janky, probably 5 minute game.

Playing the deck basically means "take some damage, do a bunch more," with Captain's Calls fueling chaining E-Strikes, Snatches, and Promise of Plenty that gives you access to even more cards. Ever versatile, if the deck wants to go tall, Minnowisms, Captain's Calls, and Nimblism help a large, highly pumped Overload with Dominate and Go Again, setting up for a powerhouse attack with more damage on the way, be that through Ravenous Rabbles that have go again, or a plethora of blue pitch cards to fuel Talishar or a surprise Exude Confidence pump. 

Will the game be over in two to three turns? Probably. But you're going to have a lot of fun playing the deck in the process!
