Rush Warrior Deck Strategy

The aim of this deck is to continually contest the board through the use of Rush minions. Cards like Parade Leader and Playmaker greatly empower any Rush minion that is played, making them a priority to get into play when it is safe to do so.

The minion-heavy nature of the deck allows Rokara to greatly empower minions as they go through their attack cycles, doubling the effect if copied by Playmaker. The constant barrage of Rush minions is enough to pressure most decks into submission, fueled by card draw from cards like Stonemaul Anchorman, Cutting Class, and Outrider's Axe.

Against Aggro, you should make even more effort to make efficient trades onto the board. If you are able to secure control of the board, the game will snowball quickly in your favor due to the lack of removal and board clears present in Aggro decks.

Against Control, games will last slightly longer and you should plan accordingly. Squeezing card draw out of Outrider's Axe, Cutting Class, and Stonemaul Anchorman will go a long way to ensuring you have enough cards to close out the game. Similarly, you should ensure you do not overcommit too heavily to the board so that you do not lose the game entirely to one board clear. A good rule of thumb to follow is to aim for about 12-15 attack spread around approximately 3 minions, or enough cards in hand to refill the board to its current size 1-2 more times.
