What I would've used at the T2 only...

...Was Music Leader with martyrs. Of course.  ;)

Ryan and I won't be at the T2 only, and I did have an idea for a T2 deck this year, so this is it. Mostly. I know I wanted to make a more gimmicky thing with max Fearless Travelers and a bunch of Faithful Witnesses, but I couldn't swing it. If anyone wants to try it out for me and let me know, go for it. Swap and experiment, cause I sure haven't. 8)

Other: 8

Blood of the Lamb
Word of Their Testimony

Gamaliel’s Speech
Third Bowl of Wrath

Ideally, one Music Leader recurs Word of Christ and Hate Wickedness while the other does Love Righteousness and Warning Against Rebellion. The trick would be to keep them on the table and keep them not negated/keep anti-search cards off.

Most of the wins are getting Faithful Witnessi in the discard and then spam recurring Third Bowl (Fifth Seal/Love Righteousness & Polycarp/Consider the Lilies abuse). I'm sure it could benefit from an Antipas.

Defense is whatever you want, I didn't think too hard about it. Manipulate with Outsiders. Of course Confusion, because it's T2. :P

Absentmindedly glancing at this unimpressive signature fills you with determination.

I'm no T2 expert but I don't see a lot of answers to evil FBTN in that offense.

The trouble with FBTN defenses is that they get smacked around by Judges... :o

Sorry Josh, I didn't actually edit your post, I inadvertently hit "Modify" instead of "Quote" and didn't realize it until I had saved.

A dedicated Job defense also probably beats that offense most of the time.

Covenant with Death & HSR. Those do a good job against most offenses, actually. :P

That's a shame, but I think I do recall hearing that. Probably swap one of the Ahaziahs for a Foul Spirit (the brown FBTN demon).

Also, if there's a dedicated Job defense in T2, I'd love to see it if it works.

I've already seen the best defense in the game (in a Job deck), but I don't think it's feasible for T2. It was the cause of much headaches at our last tournament. Needless to say, I'm not sure an offense exists that could consistently defeat it if it draws decently. AoCP is about the only thing that would give you a chance...
