Hold on a second. Are you seriously telling me that your opponents look at you killing all their Nekkers without doing anything? What rank are you playing at?iamthedave;n10241962 said:But that's why I say 'if warriors make only one copy'. Most decks run removal, right? That's just a given, every deck has SOMETHING you want to kill. Killing 6 nekkers (maximum) isn't that much of a demand when they're only 4 pt cards out the gate. Or just kill 5 and save a scorch for no. 6. And that's assuming they managed to play all three warriors on turn 1, and very few Nekker decks manage that. Turn 2 and 3 warriors don't get anything like the same value due to having less time to set up consume chains they benefit from. I mean, sure, you've just spent a bunch of cards only killing nekkers, but in the process you've killed their entire engine. There's really not much else to go after once the nekkers are gone anyway, and they're mostly non-interactive decks that don't go after you much.
What you suggest is simply impossible against a decent player. They can delay their Nekker play and boost them outside of range of your removal, pass when you lose tempo controlling their board...
Also, you said that it's very rare to play all of your Nekker warrior...It's not. In fact with three copies of each and three copies of Slyzards I can hardly think how you can miss any.
You're also saying that you just have to kill 5 Nekkers but this isn't true. A fully run Nekker deck can pull 11 Nekkers (3 from base deck + 2 from each Warrior + 2 resurrected from their graveyard with Brewess)...You're basically suggesting to have 11 removal in your starting hand...Very unlikely if you ask me.
Also, I don't understand why you conclude that NG would be the only deck that can beat Consume because of Sweers, that's a very odd idea.
Sweers is the best counter against Consume and yes, believe it or not, peoples play him because of this deck. In the current meta, if Consume wouldn't be a thing nobody would play him.
It doesn't mean that NG is the only deck that beat Consume it just mean that Sweers is the best counter for Nekkers.
About Slave driver : You're talking about a deck that doesn't exist anymore, Spellt'ael died since Farseer doesn't synergies with the deck anymore. The fact that your SD miss against this deck doesn't matter since you're probably gonna win regardless.
