An attempt to make a poison deck, one that is less susceptible to purifies and mass healing

Hover over cards for details, click for permalink
Deck import code : [Select]
710 710 710 710 710 710 710 710 710 710 718 718 718 718 718 718 71a 71a 71a 71a 71u 71u 71u 71u 71u 71u 7ee 7ee 7ee 7ee 7ee 7ee 7js 7js 7js 7n2 7n2 7n2 8po


Current problems:
-Unlike pdials, which has SoD, no way to regain lost hp (for SoSac) other than holy flashes.
-Bricked if I open with holy flashes and no tower
-Occasional deckout (pretty painful, I'm usually off by 1 turn)

Kind of reminds me of this.

I don't see why the holy flashes are in there-- the healing doesn't really seem to be worth the card space.

Thanks for the link aves! That was pretty helpful
But since I wanted to use 6 SoB, the holy flashes are there to actually increase the amount of cards in the deck so I don't deck out as quickly. As for the healing, I feel like having the holy flash heals in is better than having only SoSac (because often you get stuck in bad situations with only sosac as defense/heals)

To avoid deckout, you can slow down or stop the usage of SoB when you see that you're low on cards-- you don't have to play it all the time. This allows you to avoid the odd deckout without adding inconsistency with the 3 extra 0 cost cards. I still don't think the Holy Flash is worth it.The lack of healing is an issue, but one that can be worked around by playing around with SoSac timing. You don't always need to heal from it, just take less damage.

I think the easiest way to go about this to bypass Poision Dial's weaknesses is to make it a rainbow based deck or Death/Light pendulum deck. Possibly utilize deadly poison as purely a counter to purifies so take 3-4 of them instead of 6. Add in crusaders, maybe a couple blessings. Instead of Shard of Bravery, I'd run precog and Time Mark, to reduce deck outs.
Firestall FTW!
