Deck strategy and tips:

  • The offense is designed to overwhelm your opponent’s defense with high numbers as a result of your banded heroes.  The optimal way to end the band is to use Captain of the Host as he negates characters and enhancements (except band abilities and weapons).  Since your offense has several good weapons and band abilities, those abilities won’t be negated.
  • The defense has powerful, high-numbered giants and other warriors that act as a wall against your opponent’s attacks. Like your offense, you have several negate/interrupt options to help keep your giants in the battle as you will most likely be giving up initiative.
  • The Joshua-Captain of the Host band is one of the strongest rescue options in the game. Use this band often with Shields equipped to Joshua to protect him and Captain from opponent’s enhancements, like Scattered and other anti-banding enhancements.  You can also use Jehoshaphat to band to Captain.
  • For Soul Gen, attack with Spy while Rahab is in territory, or use Captured Kinsmen. But be careful, Captured Kinsmen negates all multi-brigade cards, including your own, so time it right when you capture him. There are other options too, such as Prisoner at Gaza. 
  • Activate Besieged in Jericho so your artifact pile can be freed-up to activate another artifact (on the artifact pile).  You can even activate a third artifact (Stalks of Flax) on Rahab!
  • Foreign Sword is a battle-winner on Rahab or Ishmaiah, as both are Canaanites.
  • Defensively, the tri-band of the Sons of Anak is very strong. 
  • A nice combo is to equip one of your weapons to Saph in territory. Since he prevents the next enhancement opponent plays, it will be hard for your opponent to stop the weapon’s hero removing ability!
