Deck strategy and tips (by Jayden Alstad):

  • The offensive battlewinners are geared towards taking out all blocking Evil Characters and work great with Uriah the Hittite who has good initiative and makes discard abilities cannot be negated.
  • Another offensive strategy is to overwhelm your opponent with a large banding chain and capping it off with Centurion at Calvary to negate Evil Characters, Asahel to choose the blocker, or Ahimaaz to spy on your opponent's hand.
  • Covenant with Adam is included to give Asahel the potential to pick off low toughness Evil Characters and the deck's defense is built with mostly large Evil Characters so it doesn't hurt to leave it active.
  • Mary and Joseph are also included to work with the meek warrior class Heroes in Reserve so that they can be used effectively either way. David can also be played as meek if needed, although usually he would be better to just band to Matthan or Eleazar.
  • Because the defense is a combination of black themes, the blockers are all pretty powerful and can be standalone blocks, like King of Tyrus, High Priest Ananias, and Outsiders.
  • Philistines is the largest theme in the defense because they have the most synergy with the weapons that can also help on offense.
