Deck strategy and tips:

  • The offense mainly revolves around The Throne of David (TToD), with your purple kings playing the first enhancement.  It’s even more powerful when Isaiah is banded into battle as he CBN protects your purple kings. However, even if you don’t have TToD in play, you can still rely on strong heroes (lone rescuers or banded) to be a formidable force against your opponent’s defense! But try and get TToD into play ASAP as your offense is the most potent with it out.
  • The defensive strategy is to “chump” block your opponent’s rescues by protecting your lost souls, or ending the battle.
  • End your offensive band chain with Isaiah to CBN protect your purple kings, or band him in to battle with Gathered Together or Unified Kingdom. Then, when your opponent blocks your purple king in battle, and you have your TToD in play, play Root of Jesse to CBN remove the blocker, since Isaiah makes Isaiah cards CBN!
  • Use cards like Spears and Sling Stones to help counter your opponent’s own soul-protecting chump block cards, such as Uzzah or Death of Unrighteous.
  • Maximize your defensive strategy by using the right card(s) to protect lost souls from rescue. But be careful!  Sometimes your opponent may have soul protection active first.  In this case, switch your tactic to ending the battle in a stalemate with cards like Unsuccessful or Gibeonite Trickery, or win it outright with a battle-winning card, such as Scattered.
