Disclaimer: Hello, I am Gnomes... I am not a top player and I have not (yet) played over 100 games with each of these bg's or anything. But I should still be able to give you some good tips, Tricks, Insights on the Theme. I also have spoken to other top SP players to get their thoughts.HONORABLE MENTION TO @@Gorebucket Welcome to Top Tier Shatterd peaks The shatter Peaks have flying Voil, cackling hyaenid, conniving Moga, slithering fesh, bumbling Cyclops, Oozing slags, and many more. This guide will be copying @Gorebucket 's amazing guide on Treefolk in hopes of giving you many Tips, Stratagem, and insight on this ghastly theme. Overview of the Meta Shatterd Peaks Theme. Meta means that all of the best runes that the faction has to offer are put into a Battle group that can Efficiency deal with all except for the most strange situations. This mean we want something like a Swiss army knife BG. Criteria of what Meta should have to be named such: 3 Different attack types not including physical and magical. -To counter mirrored, void shield, ethereal...ect. Shatter Detection Efficient way to deal with summons -For us thats Ritualist Dispell/Hard champ removal -To counter the Super champ. Alternate DMG then basic attacks -We have 2x grant Aura as well as many other non-basic attacks. Healing Ap gain or initiation. -We Have alacrity, as well as Harpoon 1 AOE ~Sism cleanse Now a Meta deck should have most of these points of utility to counter what is thrown at them. But does not need to have ALL of these things. For example, sp has very little options for cleanse, hyeanid witchdoctor is my only option of ok cleanse because we dont have it in form of spells/relics/equips. I personally dont like cleanse on champs though, i feel its only really good if its used the turn after the Champ was debuffed. What champ types Meta should have Tank Utility DPS Scout Ranged Mele Building a Meta Deck I recommend starting with a base of: 1x Riftlord 1x Cyclops Wardrummer 1x Mika 1x Cyclops Ritualsist - Rituals, Dispel/Fester 1x Klub the Devourer 1x Kanen Slipped/Hyaenid Flamefist 1x Tribal Post (Warbanner) - 5 hp, 1 dmg Global 1x Avalanch 1x Alacrity 1x V Push 1x Vicious Harpoon 1x Slavers Whip 1x Staff of solstice These Runes make every SP deck into something playable at top levels. Ritualist has a bit to much utility to be left out, he allows all summon spam/swarm BG's to be laughably easy. He also allows for super champ bg's or annoying spells to be counterd with dispel, im looking at you Magnify beast / bubble of protection. Disclaimer This says a lot! And is very true, if the meta is focussing on a certain aspect of the game, it can be more beneficial to add more hard counter to that specific thing then to add more versatility to the deck. For example if you are eating only soup with your Swiss army knife, then it's a better idea to remove the fork it has attached, and add another spoon in case you loose one... "Great. So just what is all that stuff? What does it do? And why should I use it? Good question. What follows is a detailed analysis of all of the theme's champs and a brief rundown of the out of theme champs and support runes that merit special consideration. Of course, you might find a rune not included in this list to be a better fit for your own battlegroup (feel free to share them). After that there is some general advice on actually playing with your META DECK. I hope you find this guide useful and enjoyable. =)"
