I somewhat agree but also disagree. the Viy deck is reliant on order consume units sticking on the board so Viy isnt exposed. if you have a heavy control list and can get rid of slyzards, barbeghazi, desert wraith (?) and possibly kayran, the viy player is left with 3 leader charges. atleast that's what comes to my mind rn, am I overseeing something? even if you only kill half of those, the ones that remain must consume multiple times, being super vulnerable to tall punish.Unfortunately, in its present form, Viy, however its stats are tweaked, will present a floor engine value all opposing decks must meet to be competitive. Unless this floor is so low that Viy decks are unplayable, it will be so high that only very heavy engine decks can be meta. This destroys the game.
Either Viy or several of the excessive possible tutors must be substantively changed; power tweaks to Viy can never bring balance.
I think the viy list is so successfull atm because everyone is trying new, sometimes whacky combos with the new cards. if I remember the meta of the last weeks*, which was extremely removal heavy with heatwave, rockslide, 5p removals and others being in almost every deck, I think Viy might have a harder time against those
