The famous David vs. Goliath battle (circa 1000 B.C) is far more than a popular Sunday school story; it was a showdown to determine the fate of Israel! At the time, the 17 year old David was unknown to the overall nation, although he had already been anointed by Samuel as the successor to King Saul, who then without knowing this appointed David to play music for him in his royal court. But David was also a "man of war" with bold faith, and his epic victory set the dominoes in motion that would lead to him raising up the Mighty Men and becoming the greatest King in Israel's history!

Deck strategy and tips:

  • Bravery of David is one of the strongest enhancements in the game. Uriah the Hittite makes it "cannot be negated" by his own ability, but otherwise, be sure to have David in play when using it to make it CBN.
  • A Soldier's Prayer is a fantastic enhancement which can get your Bravery of David back from the discard pile, or situationally get whatever you need from deck or discard pile, either outside of battle or in battle!
  • With David in play (or battle) and Ahimelek the Hittite in hand or territory, use Battle Cry to band in Ahimelek for a cannot be negated battle-winner!
  • Defensively, Philistine Outpost is a terrific card which keeps your supply of blockers going. Combine with Philistine Armor-Bearer to get whoever you need for the situation!
  • Saph equipped with a battle-winning weapon such as Lahmi's Spear or Ishbibenob's Spear is a very strong combo, as the opponent's first enhancement is prevented by Saph's ability. This means that your opponent will need a cannot be prevented or cannot be negated good enhancement which also interrupts the battle or negates your weapon.
  • Goliath (P) is extremely strong against banded Heroes (as is The Twelve-Fingered Giant, although lesser so), and Philistine Garrison is great against solo Heroes.
  • King Achish's draw-and-play ability is great for speed and battle-winning; he is a great target to recur with Philistine Armor-Bearer!
