Brief Summary of Build
This is a deck I played almost exclusively this season, from rank 11 to 20. It's based off karl912's list, with couple changes that, in my opinion, fit more in this meta. IT's a strong and fun deck to play, and when you learn how to pilot it well - it's capable of answering any current meta deck. I've reached 4k mmr with it, and strongly believe that it's capable of reaching GM in hands of someone with more experience and time to play.
Aglaïs > high value spells like Runestones, Scorch.
Mulligans are pretty straightforward:
1. Toss Aelirenn.
5. If you have a decent hand - it's ok too keep Wardancer for R2.
Rule of the thumb for this deck - we want to have the last say in short R3 with either Eithné or Schirrú. This is usually when they play their Ciri: Nova/Bloody Baron/Huge Greatsword/Shupe, we Scorch it, collect points and queue for a next game. You do need to make a proper assessment of the game from the beginning to make sure it goes your way.
In R1, regardless of the coin, you'll want to start thinning you deck with Elven Mercenary into Reconnaissance. Ideal chain is Merc > Recon > Merc > Recon > Merc > Recon > Half-Elf Hunter. Of course, it won't always happen like this, but your goal is to thin as much as possible, while summoning Aelirenn in the process. With Elven Scout you want some carryover - Mahakam Defender is an ideal pick, as they'll either have to waste a removal or use more cards in R2. Generally you want to win R1, but losing two cards up is ok as well, if you can play Yaevinn in R2.
Good matchup, trivial if you choose to run Muzzle instead Aglaïs. When he plays Crach > GS - Artefact Compression it. When he Mandrakes another GS - Eithné > Artefact Compression it as well. Use Dol Blathanna Archer to line up a good Scorch, and keep Schirrú for R3. Feel free to Iorveth an 8 point GS, because why not.
Same as GS, but this time you'll hate Nekkers. Most important thing - never, ever, kill the first Nekker he plays. This'll pull out the other one from his deck, and he'll be able to use Nekker Warrior on it. Artefact Compression first and second one, and then just Iorveth/Dol Blathanna Archer the last one. From that point you can sit back, relax and wait for the opponent to forfeit.
