Deck strategy and tips:

  • OVERVIEW
  • The Ruth offense has been significantly boosted with many Ruth-related cards being released in LoC.  Whether it’s banding, CBN battle-winning Enhancements, protections, Reserve access, this offense does it all!
  • The defense works to protect your lost souls from being rescued, such as the powerful King Balak/Balaam combo, and others, coupled with powerful battle-winning enhancements, such as Scattered and Balaam's Teaching, as well as several search and draw abilities, all of which are sure to frustrate your opponent!  Additionally, in conjunction with the defense, a few of the lost souls tend to help protect themselves from rescue, or punish your opponent's heroes when rescued. 
  • THE OFFENSE
  • Almost all of your heroes have a meek side to them, which functions well with certain abilities that pair well with meek heroes. So be sure to use this side to maximize your offense. You can also reset your heroes from the special ability and/or meek side with cards like Book of the Law and Rahab. 
  • Ruth is one of your best heroes as Ruth enhancements played on her are CBN. 
  • Threshing Floor is a great way to add speed to your deck and to get a certain card you need. Just make sure you have several Ruth heroes in territory in order to maximize its effectiveness. 
  • THE DEFENSE
  • Balaam is a powerful blocker as he can take an O.T. gray curse from discard pile (in this deck that curse is Unsuccessful, one of the most powerful curses in the game), he can play gray enhancements and prevents enhancements.  Since many of your evil enhancements are CBP or CBN, they can still be active when played on him. 
  • Orpah is a strong chump-block with her conditional CBP withdrawal ability. 
  • Unsuccessful is a powerful battle-winner when played as an enhancement as it can stalemate the battle, regardless if you’re losing by the numbers or not. Also, Balaam can recur it, since it’s an O.T. gray curse.
