A deck type that gains points aggressively at the risk of disruption.
Greed is a deck type that focuses on playing as many points as possible as aggressively as possible, without paying attention to the opponent’s gameplan and win condition. They have a very high point ceiling if they are not disrupted. Greedy decks often use engines, which scale over the course of one or many rounds. All of this makes greedy decks very vulnerable to removal through control decks.
