World's '16 Gauntlet

As we run up to Worlds 2016, I constructed a gauntlet for testing. Im using this list as a starting point and looking for feedback/omissions. Thoughts welcome!

I think its hard to start seriously testing at this point without inside look at the future packs.

Either way, I think you have too many decks here for serious testing guantlet(solely my opinion , your testing might work differently). Pick the best deck of each type(for instance you don’t need 3 rush decks in testing, if a deck loses to the best rush deck its probably got a bad mup against people that rush behind ice regardless of which faction). Pick the best kill deck and focus on that.

A testing gauntlet is mostly so you can quickly assess if a deck your testing can stand up to the big decks of the meta. If they do your not wasting your time, if they don’t then you are.

Once you have figured out if it works against the big decks start jamming against a broader field so you get comfortable with your deck against a variety of things.

Good luck with worlds testing.

I’m not sure it easy to say archetypes could not bump from outer space until the worlds.

One card can enable or rehabilitate a deck :wink:
