Galakrond Tempo Rogue Mulligan Guide

Galakrond Tempo Rogue 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.

Galakrond Tempo Rogue 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.

If you have access to Spirit of the Shark and Edwin VanCleef, you can aim to win by generating a huge minion to finish off your opponent quickly. This largely relies on the use of Umbral Skulker if you have been able to Invoke twice, the large number of The Coins you generate will give you the Mana to play more cards, while also boosting the stats of your Edwin Vancleef. This strategy can also be applied on a smaller scale with Questing Adventurer.

If you do not have the tools to make a big minion, you can alternatively set up for a huge tempo play in the late game. To set this up, you should look to use Heistbaron Togwaggle to draw 0-cost cards using Wondrous Wand or simply use the Battlecry of Galakrond, the Nightmare. The ability to draw 0-cost cards can be utilised in multiple ways. Firstly, you can shuffle in multiples of a powerful cards like Heistbaron Togwaggle or Kronx Dragonhoof to utilise their powerful Battlecries many times. Alternatively, you can use the free cards as an easier way to generate large copies of Questing Adventurer and Edwin VanCleef to finish off your opponent.

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 or heal up your Hero and is a perfect target for Togwaggle's Scheme.

Against Control, your aim should be to maximise the value of your deck to win the game. Heistbaron Togwaggle is a powerful card for doing this and is a perfect target for Togwaggle's Scheme. If you can play the card multiple times, you can use the Wondrous Wand Treasure to draw through your deck in the mid game and then use Zarog's Crown Treasure for huge value in the late game.
