A combo-control deck featuring cheap actions that either dig for your win condition in Psychic Ascension or prevent your opponent from using their cards. This deck runs a suite of troops and troop-making cards in order to draw three cards for one resource with Consult the Talon. Once this deck has turbo’d out a Psychic Ascension, they “go off” by triggering Ascension via casting actions and kill their opponent with the troops generated by this ability.
There are several different versions of this deck with different secondary game plans and support cards, but they all aim to get Psychic Ascension into play and take over the game.
