In this article you will learn how to play the strongest meta deck!Edit Article
Forces From Beyond, one clearly came out on top: Kai’Sa. This champion is not only the strongest champion from this expansion, but is also currently one of the strongest champions in the whole game! This is proven by the fact that its most popular deck currently has this champion alone, without the presence of any other champion. And it is this deck exactly which I will unravel in today’s article. Let’s go?!
About Kai’sa and the keyword Evolve
Evolve. This keyword works like so: after you’ve played units with 6+ keywords which are not
Evolve(that means, it doesn’t count for its own progress), the units with
Evolvegain a +2+2 buff and in Kai’Sa’s case, she levels up.
Evolve’s progress can be even easier to reach. Another 1 cost unit that this deck has is Xer’Sai Hatchling, a unit commonly seen in Lurk lists. Though it seems weird to have this card here, you need to take into account that the Xer’Sai Hatchling has
Fearsome, so it’s already 2 keywords for
Evolve’s progress, on round 1 already, so it is quite strong. Out of Kai’Sa’s followers, this deck has 3 of them, and they are: Belvethi Elder, which has
Spellshield, Void Blaster, which has
Overwhelm, and Void Abomination, which, well.. Is Void’s Abomination! Probably, the strongest 8 cost unit in the whole game. Void Abomination gets all positive keywords that you’ve played throughout the match. That’s right, it gets it just through you playing those keywords, it doesn’t need to see you play them. And more: when it is on board, when you play a unit with a keyword you haven’t yet played before putting Void Abomination on board, it still gets the keywords, that is, it is a continuous effect and transforms this unit in an excellent finisher due to the absurd amount of keyword this unit can hoard.
Formidable, which is a keyword that no other units in this deck have and it gains
Challengerwhen another unit is played, making
Evolve’s countdown go down one more. Radiant Guardian, when she is summoned after one of your units dies in the round, is granted
Lifesteal, keywords which are extremely important, and will make you come back into difficult matches. Kai’sa and Void Abomination with
Lifestealcan wreck tremendous havoc! Greenfang Warden isn’t a good unit, but it has important keywords, which are:
Scout. Considering that
Scoutis one of the strongest keywords in the whole game, it is nice to have another way to give this keyword to Kai’sa, as Valor is quite a fragile unit.
Fearsome, a keyword that Xer’Sai Hatchling already has, but the important thing about this unit is its effect: granting
Vulnerableto any enemy unit. With that, you can kill any enemy unit in the early game.
Toughand Sharpsight, which besides buffing the unit +1+2, makes it able to block
Elusivetoo. The Absolver, depending on the situation, can be used to protect, but ideally you will use this spell aggressively, to deal more damage. Rite of Calling is a way to draw Kai’Sa, after all a deck with only one champion, without its champion, doesn’t work, right? So there are 3 copies of this spell to guarantee you will draw Kai’Sa. Even when you already have the champion in hand, drawing another Kai’Sa can be interesting, as it allows you to use Supercharge, which grants
Overwhelmto a unit. If you use this spell on Valor and use Second Skin on it, Kai’Sa gets 4 keywords, which alongside the 2 she already has, adds up 6 damage on the ability Icathian Rain, the champion’s skill in her leveled form.
Scout, using Cataclysm practically determines the match’s end!
Other card options
Elusive, which makes Kai’Sa and Void Abomination even stronger!
Mulligan and Playstyle
Evolveas soon as possible, so it is important to keep in hand units such as Xer’Sai Hatchling and Petricite Broadwing, which together count 4 different keywords. Kai’Sa is essential to keep in your hand, as it is your main win condition. Blinding Assault is also important to keep, as it is a very important spell for your gameplan.
