Description

Plays out like a very classic Mono Blue flying man + curiosity kind of deck.

Grazillax always threatens a turn 3 curiosity type of effect, providing you with very consistent openers. Drawing extra cards compensates the card disadvantage of your many bounce effects, which thus act as some catch-all highly efficient removals that your counterspells complement.

Later in the game, Grazilaxx\’s first ability lets you chump attack and bounce whatever gets blocked back into your hand. Since your creatures are super cheap, you just get to replay them without completely letting your shields down.

Overall, Grazillax works very well in Brawl with most archetypes playing cards more expensive than yours to maintain an overall high power-level. The feelings of playing your typical sharp and tricky Mono Blue tempo decks are there, except you get to play a handful of cards you wouldn\’t play otherwise.
