A new take on tengu, with the orpheum and deadman’s eyes. After set up, these can be used to draw a ton of cards from journey of souls and for board clear. Foresight is questionable, but finding combo pieces due to foresight can win you some games. Always set up fast lane between orpheum and dead man eyes so you get option to draw or clear board. Try to burn for only 3-4 red gems. Not running racer may seem questionable at first, however racer doesnt provide souls for journey of souls, axeman seems like a decent replacement also synergising well with aggravated injury.
Combo1: tengu + stratagem36 = reduce cost of tengu to 0 mana and 1 purple gem permanently.
Combo2: tengu + ringmaster= board clear that costs only purple gems
Combo3: fastlane + orpheum/deadman eyes = moving tengu from fastlane to orpheum immediately sacrifices it providing both souls and a board clear and toward deadman eyes can draw cards or provide mana
Combo4: tengu + fastlane + wings/terror of ker= this is our finisher. We rush tengu to face and sacrifice it repeatedly.
We can deal a maximum of 4(number of purple gems)+4 damage (4x6+4=28 if we burn 6 purple gems) with wings or 5(number of purple gems) for terror of ker (5x6=30)
Combo5: aggravated injury + orpheum/axeman: cheap single target removal
