Krark-Clan Ironworks-

The Hatchery is one of the most useful cards in the deck. You can play it before a Dominion so you can activate the ability afterwards, since you’ll have nothing to do with your lands later. Or, you could use it as a backup win condition by sacrificing everything to Ironworks for tons of mana to pay for it. If you’re really desperate, you could play it for 0 and sac it for mana.
