Galakrond Tempo Rogue Deck Mulligan Guide

Galakrond Tempo Rogue Deck is a tempo deck that relies largely on the use of Invoke mechanics. As such, you will largely be looking for Invoke cards in your mulligan to ensure a strong mid game.

  • General Mulligan (keep regardless of what your opponent is playing)Praise Galakrond!, Seal Fate, Pharaoh Cat, and EVIL Miscreant.
  • Mulligan against Aggro (also keep if you think you are playing against an aggressive deck)Backstab.
  • Mulligan against Control (also keep if you think you are playing against a slow deck)Galakrond, the Nightmare.

Galakrond Tempo Rogue Deck Strategy

Galakrond Rogue requires you to stay safe during the early game. You should make use of Rogue's cheap removal, prioritising using the Invoke spells, Praise Galakrond! and Seal Fate, wherever possible. Once you reach the mid game, there are various different directions you can go with this deck depending on your hand composition.

Going into the mid game, you should continue to try and control the board using additional Invoke cards Devoted Maniac and Shield of Galakrond, alongside Lackeys as necessary with the aim of having Invoked at least 4 times by turn 7.

Going into the late game, your aim is to play either a full Invoked Galakrond, the Nightmare or use Heistbaron Togwaggle to discover a Wondrous Wand. From here you can begin to play a flurry of discounted cards to control the board and overwhelm your opponent, or simply kill your opponent outright in some cases.

Ideally, before playing Galakrond or Wondrous Wand you should try to play Lorekeeper Polkelt to guarantee you discount your highest cost cards. This can even be used to guaranteed that you will get Galakrond with your next draw if you do not already have it.

Against Aggro, you should try to keep the board under control, making full use of your Lackeys as the deck has no direct source of healing available. If you do find yourself behind, Kronx Dragonhoof is an extremely powerful card that can be used to clear the board and can often be a great turning point in a game if you are struggling.

Against Control, your aim should be to maximise the value of your deck to win the game. This will largely come down to tactical use of your Lackeys and the cards they Discover. In particular, you should look out for cards like Dragonqueen Alexstrasza from your Draconic Lackeys and Togwaggle's Scheme from your Ethereal Lackeys to help you in the long run.
