Deck strategy and tips:

  • The offense’s strategy forces your opponent to underdeck evil cards from hand or territory. If your opponent doesn’t do it, then you gain a strong benefit. They’re also backed up by strong enhancement and support cards.

  • The defense centers on capture abilities but also has a minor deck discard theme. It also has a few discard pile recursion options and add to battle abilities.

  • Use Stone Pillar at Bethel to easily snag your OT Son of God or Angel of the Lord! If you don’t need these, there are several OT good cards to select.
  • Get Joseph in play early, then play Storehouse to make its ability CBN and also protect it. Additionally, Joseph makes your other SoJs CBN, which is very powerful!
  • Covenant with Noah can take either a good or evil Genesis human from deck. So use it to snag a hero for that turn’s rescue, or get one of your Genesis Egyptians to set up your next block!
  • Use Abraham’s Descendant and Brought to Egypt to band in several SoJs which will force your opponent to choose to underdeck his evil cards from hand and/or territory!
  • If your Egyptian is removed from battle by an opponent, or if you just need bigger numbers in battle, use Murderous Command and/or Cupbearer’s Complaints to keep the battle going!
