Deck strategy and tips:

  • The heroes’ abilities, and the effectiveness of those abilities are heavily dependent upon the number of the minor prophets you have in play. So the more minor prophets you have out, the more effective the offense works. The offense also has a plethora of abilities, such as drawing, searching, taking, etc.
  • The defense relies heavily on protecting your Lost Souls from being rescued; hence there being no need for the use of many evil Enhancements to win the battle. The defense also has several benefits related to the use of meek Lost Souls (souls with no special abilities), such as Led Astray and many of your protection from rescue cards.
  • Although your heroes have limited banding, when they can band it’s highly potent. Use Gathered Together, Obadiah and/or Bearing Our Sin to get many benefits of your other prophets by banding them into battle. For example, play Gathered Together to band heroes such as Amos and/or Joel into battle to potentially defeat the blockers, and/or negate any evil abilities that are causing you to lose the battle.
  • Was your lone prophet Christian Martyred during battle? Keep the battle going by using Bearing Our Sin to heal that prophet and add another one to battle!
  • Punish your opponent’s searching and drawing with cards, such as Jonah and Habakkuk. 
  • The Coming Prophet is a great card as it can topdeck a prophet from Reserve, and each turn it can snag a star card from your Reserve, even your evil star cards!
  • High Places is a powerful evil fortress. If a meek Lost Soul is played, you can draw a card. Also, there are benefits if your evil kings block. Furthermore, it can hold one and idol, allowing your artifact pile to be freed up for another artifact to be activated there.
  • There’s plenty of soul gen in this deck with cards like Imprisoned Prophet, The Amalekite’s Slave, Amos’ star ability, Jehoiachin’s star ability, and Hosea, who can capture one of your banding evil humans, or one of your opponents’ territory.
