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). However, when using Clement, cards like Deception Exposed and Power of the Cross will still work with his ability.
  • The Roman defense focuses on disrupting your opponent’s hand and, in combination with certain Lost Souls, helps to remove the Lost Souls from play with cards like Washing Hands. In contrast to the soul removal strategy, your defense also focuses on capture abilities that work in conjuction with Alexandrian Ship and your centurions to generate Lost Souls in your opponent’s Land of Bondage.
  • Syntyche searches out Clement; Euodia increases his numbers to make him even more powerful; and The Watchful Leaders bands to him to protect him from harm. 
  • 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)! Also, he can either be healed and/or converted after battle.
