HOW TO PLAY WITH A CONTROL DECK?

A control deck, in essence, is a strategy that aims to bring your opponent into late game, by using early game card removals and sticky minions such as taunts to delay the game long enough to be able to use power cards. The objective is to overwhelm your opponent late game with powerful spells and large minions.

Unlike the control decks opposite archetype – aggro deck, the control deck aim is to survive the early game by destroying enemy minions with spells and using taunts to force your opponents to sacrifice their spells or minions.

Providing the deck manages to survive any early pressure, once in the late game, the control deck chance of winning is heightened greatly. With enough mana to lay down our heavy hitting cards and the ability to employ powerful combos.
