Strategy

As the title suggests this is a no legendary and only one epic deck that should serve you well if you’re stuck above rank 10. The deck thrives off high value plays to create an early advantage over the opponent. If you’re looking to swap in a few cards, removing the Southsea Deckhand and Sea Giant may be higher on your priority list. A video of this deck in action can be found here:

Opening Hand
In general in your opening hand you will want backstab and defias ringleader, though it can vary on your opponent. These two cards allow you on turn 2 to kill a 3/2 and drop a 2/2 with a 2/1. Another option for the ringleader is turn one with the coin which is exceptionally strong as well.

Early Game
You will want to use a combination of your combos (defias ringleader and SI:7 Agent) as well as harvest golems, shattered sun clerics and weapon to try and build a card advantage. Ideally you will clear the board while keeping at least one (preferably two for defender) minion on the board and getting a bit of damage on the opponent.

Mid Game
From turn 4 on you need to cement your game plan. You can use the buffs from Dark Iron Dwarf and Defender of Argus to make advantageous trades. You may also start getting out some combo’d eviscerates to take down larger mobs which may have otherwise required you trading a few smaller minions. It’s important to not just blow all your cards, you need to get the most out of combos and you need cards to make combos. Don’t be afraid to weapon up and face tank some damage here either, this is where you need to push the opponent.

Late Game
This deck does not favor the very long games due to the lack of high mana cost powerful minions. You want to try to have finished before the opponent can lay down large powerful taunts every turn. If you still have eviscerates keep in mind that they are a spell and you can use them directly on the enemy champion even if they have a taunt.
