Meta Deckard (NP Builds)

There are usually tons of variants that are Meta, these are the meta builds I recommend for competitive and storm league. With the variations I recommend depending on your skill and ranks. 
Activate to increase the Slow of the next Horadric Cube by 100% and its slow by 30%. Only 1 Gem may be active at a time.
Saphire combo quickly with your triangle root makes it a lot easier to land. If you get really good at it you can consistantly root teams.

If your team is going in, throw a quick sapphire on the people who no escapes and confidently throw an E to root and followup.
Potion of Shielding
Whenever an ally is healed by a Healing Potion, they gain a 122 Shield for 6 seconds
In high ranks burst is killer. Throw this on anyone who gets hit by a CC. It will be easy to land because they are sitting still and it's usually enough to save them. In anything but competitive i prefer rejuv potion. Overtime it heals more and gives mana.
Activate to increase the damage of the next Horadric Cube by 100% and have it reduce healing received of enemy Heroes by 75% for 4 seconds. Only 1 Gem may be active at a time.
Emerald is amazing. But there is a misconception. Don't just fire this everytime you see a big heal. Fire this off when your team is killing someone to prevent them being saved.

If you are a bit new and don't want to manage 2 gems, against heavy frontline get kanais and against anything else get cube mastery.
Stay Awhile and Listen
After 1 second, Channel for 3 seconds, putting enemy Heroes in front of Deckard to Sleep while Channeling, and for 2 seconds after. Enemies can only be put to Sleep once per cast, and Sleep's effects end instantly if they take damage.
Lorenado is good, don't get me wrong, but this ability is an amazing setup and also a great escape. Not to mention its upgrade is game ending.
Super Healing Potion
If a Healing Potion isn't picked up for at least 2 seconds, it heals for 120% more.
In the highest levels of competitive swap this to ancient blessings. Blessings is balanced for pros using it with perfect communication. It isn't balanced for random games. However super healing potions can heal for like 1000 at this level.

Throw these to the sides of fights. I like to have one whole row from the backline to the frontline of any given fight, so everyone just steps down and heals for half their health.
Scroll of Stone Curse
Scroll of Sealing deals 200% more damage when hitting at least 2 Heroes.
If they have a diver like genji or greymane grab that staff and stun him then walk away. If they don't scroll of stone curse can sneak out 1k damage on the entire enemy team. I have had one team fight where I did 12k damage on deckard in a single team fight.
Respect the Elderly
Stay Awhile and Listen Silences and Blinds enemies for 3 seconds upon waking up from Sleep.
If you have a decent team and you rip this hitting the entire enemy team, even if they are woken immediately you win the game.

Bottomless is surprisingly good too. As well as perfect gems. Deckards 20s are very good.
