Deadly Jigsaw (Galactic Gardens)

Hi All,


This deck is one that is actually viable for Z-Mech in the UL. It has been made by BluePhaze ( I made  just minor amendments to it that I liked, while not saying that the deck got necessarily better – I  removed 3 Valkyries and added 1 more of newspapers, final mission and Going viral.

I have played it occasionally through last week or so and lost twice from approx 20 games. What I like about this deck is that it needs to be played like a puzzle. Each card is a piece of it and  it needs to be put together piece by piece carefully, taking in consideration the opponent and his next moves, and then it explodes in one or two bursts of violence, ending the game.

So it is NOT so that on T2 you always play Deadbards and T3 Fireworks. Final Misssion is being used as both control and finisher, the same with Binary, which can secure a field clear (w/Missile Madness or Fireworks) as well as finish.

It is hard to describe precisely as there are so many options of how to achieve the victory here ,  I highly recommend to just go and play it. It is very demanding but also very rewarding deck for those looking for thoughtful game. It is not a beginner´s deck.

Cards that can be replaced or reduced in numbers – Quasar, Intergalactic Warlord, Gas Giant ( I rarely end up using it anyways), even one Binary might probably go.

You can add Wrath, Valkyrie, Cake,  Chickening, Stone, which each changes slightly the way the deck is to be played.


Let me know your thoughts.

    I would just absolutely remove Newspaper and Jester, They are totally non-meta and could be swapped for alot more powerful cards.
    -1 Going Viral would also do well.

      This whole deck is non-meta. Yet it has stabile 90+ % in UL, tested now by two people with aggregate score at cca 60+ : 3.
      It is a specific play, which I much enjoy. As I wrote, it is a puzzle of which News is instrumental part.
      So despite that there indeed are many more powerful cards, they would not fit into this puzzle. They would make it a different one.
