I think this deck is really pretty. On paper it seems to always have different ways to attack, sets up quickly, and is extremely versatile. I love being able to go Widow at Z first turn to Elijah and grab Elisha and a Tested by Fire in reserve first turn. Now if I can go Angel of Winds to Widow back to Elijah second turn for my second Tested by Fire in reserve...now we're on to something. The offense sets up, can draw, recur, play first, attack their deck, attack their hand, attack their territory, extend the battle, negate, decent reserve access, TC madness, TC negates, the list goes on. I really wanted to run AuTo-Sam-David the Psalmist for a nice opening draw but the deck seemed to set up fast enough, and consistently enough and was able to utilize those slots more effectively with other heroes.

I like Malachi but who would I take out for him? I like my 2 Cherubim’s but I could go to 1. The deck has so much recursion already I didn’t feel like Malachi was a huge boost but I suppose one Cherubim and 1 Malachi is a fair swap, good advice.

Malachi could be a good pick for the reserve. I've found he is incredibly useful in star heavy decks, especially when you are running a lot of star heroes. But, you won't need him all the time, which is why I think he's better for the reserve. Another good card to consider would be the coming prophet. That affords you some space in the reserve for more star cards.

I only like having Elisha in reserve and having 4 green enhs in there for Widow to snag easily. As more The Coming Prophet, I thought of it and wrote it down but ultimately this deck sets up fast enough and should theoretically have enough every attack, I didn’t want another TC class. Maybe when more star cards come out but this deck gets its resources out fast enough I think. During playtesting if I am finding I am limited on enhs I will add it, thanks for the advice.

I would definitely cut one of the Nahums for Malachi. 2 Nahums and 2 YWRs is overkill IMO.

I'm surprised you elected to use RoA Isaiah when you don't have a single Isaiah angel in deck so that Isaiah can recur straight to hand.

Forgot Cherubim is Ezekiel. I didn’t look at any cards for this just a heads-up, I wrote this all down from memory/brainstorming. I would use 2 Isaiah angels over Cherubim then or swap Isaiah’s, easy fix and great catch.
Justin- 2 Nahum’s/YWR isn’t enough, I love extending the battle. Josiah won two years ago with YWRx2 and Faith of David x2 plus he was insteading things. I love it, I plan on making a YWR, Nahum, YWR deck with them  all maxed out.

Is your defense going to be straight Babs to satisfy Unity on Bab Siege Army/Bab Merchants?  Or will you have an Assyrian/Bab splash?

Or...  Will you go straight Assyrians for their Unity EC?

I liked the idea of crimson/PG but until I see if the unity on either side outweighs the openness of the deck, I won’t know for sure. If I had to pick right now I would lean towards unity Assyrians.

Seraph and Angel of His Presence and you're good for Isaiah angels.
Absentmindedly glancing at this unimpressive signature fills you with determination.
