The Book of Acts describes the dramatic dynamics of the Early Church, as it experienced explosive growth amidst intense persecution from the Romans and others. The church at Philippi was the first in Europe, located in Macedonia and starting around 50 A.D. Acts 16-20 describe some amazing Early Church events occuring at Philippi, and the Book of Philippians is the Apostle Paul's famous encouraging letter to this church.

Deck strategy and tips:

  • The Philippi offense is fast and strong, focusing on fighting "by the numbers" with Clement as the best rescue option that you should try to set up and roll with.  But be careful, Clement's ability won't activate if Luke is in your territory as Luke is not a Philippi hero (Luke's missionary status works best with cards like Epaphroditus and The Generous Givers).
  • Syntyche searches out Clement; Euodia increases his stats to make him even more powerful; and The Generous Givers bands to him to give protection from Christian Martyr or Falling Away (CoW).
  • The Roman Jailer is an awesome character as his ability allows you to immediately play capture enhancements, like Arrest in Jerusalem (as an Evil Character) or Trapped in Cleverness (as a Hero)!
  • Defensively, the Romans are great at disrupting your opponent's hand with cards such as Denarius and Porcius Festus.
  • Cards, such as Power of the Cross and Deception Exposed, can still be played on Clement as they are CBP.
