Oh Nexus Core Oh Nexus core...

Intro to the deck
It's the holiday season and what better what to celebrate than with a new deck? Since 4.1 release I've been messing around with a couple of decks. I liked the Ator rexless dinos deck I had for a while but it seemed to not do as well against growide strategies. After I got my relic hunters, I decided to try to make a deck with Shambler and hunter (loosely based off Kit's Aetherguard deck). Customary of Seyfert, I decided to throw in a Nexus Core (because I can). As of writing this article, I'm 25-7 in the conQ with it, although I expect figures to drop once people actually figure out what I'm doing.
So what does the list look like and what are the cards?
3x Xithan Shambler
3x Relic Hunter
3x Vault Welder
3x Citadel Guard
3x Abyssal Brute
3x Oreian Scavenger
3x War Tinker
2x Xithian Direhound
1x Nexus Core
3x Aegis Wings
3x Gauntlets of Sulgrim
Deck list Explanation
|"Everyone has nightmares. Even monsters under the bed have nightmares.|
What do monsters under the bed have nightmares about?
|"You will be upgraded"|
|"The anger of a good man is not a problem. Good men have too many rules"|
|"...who had fought with gods and demons, why he had run away from us and hidden: he was being kind"|
|"2000 years. I've waited 2000 years for you."|
Citadel Guard does the exact same thing as Vault Welder, except instead of turning on something it is the thing that gets turned on.
|"Upgrading is compulsory"|
|"Because she's not fat. She's just bigger on the inside"|
|"Are you my mommy?"|
|"The beast and his armies will rise from the pit to make war against God."|
|"Demons run when a good man goes to war."|
Aegis wings on a Shambler lets it move around and kill whatever you want, while at the same time protecting it with added armor goodness. The setup you want with this deck is to Relic Scout a Shambler into eating a Citadel Guard then playing Aegis wings on it. Then you win the MVP and everything is awesome!
This deck is quite voltronish and you'll want to win by PL2 if possible. The longer the game drags on the less likely it is that you'll win. Although if you do get the huge Citadel Guard + Vault Welder draws you can still make it.
