"Territory Terror" - Bringing Justice Bringer into Battle!

Who knows who Justice Bringer is?  He probably sounds familiar but you know you've never seen him being used.  He seemed to have a cool ability but it was just too conditional with having a purple king in your control, and you didn't want to hit your own stuff in territory, so you moved on to something else.  Well, I'm here to tell you...now's JB's time to shine!

History:  I liked JB but, like many, just didn't find a place for him.  However, with the release of the new Captain of the Host (PoC), Jehoshaphat, and the upcoming Michael, Chief Prince and Expelled from Heaven purple/silver CBP enhancement, I felt it was time.  So, over the past couple of months I built an offense around these heroes and focused on territory destruction (TD), along with the defense being a part of this strategy.  I settled on a black defense being the quickest and most destructive TD.

The deck has gone through several iterations, and I always felt it lacked certain things, speed being one of them.  The below version I literally slapped together an hour before the 01/22/22 online tournament, and it did quite well!  I ended up beating Redemption's pro-player, Jayden A., in the first game 5/4; and Andy F. in the second game 5/2, causing the most destruction to Andy's territory during that game (sorry, Andy!), and lost to Jared in the 3rd game 2/5. 

After the success of that tournament, I went back to the drawing board and made a Contender Deck that is really fast and even more powerful!  So, here are both decks.  The second deck listed is the current Contender Deck that Jayden and I fine-tuned a bit the other night and is ready for posting as a product at YTG.  I would now change the tournament version deck I made to more closely resemble the Contender version, particularly on offense, so it's still a bit of a work in progress.  But once MCP and BFH come out (among any other toys for this theme), it will make OT angels and the like a very powerful offense.

Deck Strategy:  The offense relies on strong banding heroes.  You want to start the band with your purple kings.  So, begin with David (or Manasseh, or both!) to Jehoshaphat (he's the lynchpin to the offense) to Captain to Justice Bringer.  You need to control a purple king, which you do in battle, but the good thing is since they're in battle you won't hit them sitting in territory with JB's ability!  Even better, if you have a human hero or EC sitting in territory, bounce it with Jeho so you don't hit it with JB.  I tend to hit Patmos as the target as I have already used it to get a Revie angel, so I don't need it anymore.  And notice there are no forts in my territory for JB to hit either, so it's basically only my opponent's territory that's going to take a hit.  ;)  Or, if you do hit one of your human heroes, simply use Eternal Covenant to bring it back next turn. 

If you don't want JB at the end of the band, switch tactics and go to either The Destroyer (particularly if you have Death of Firstborn in hand), or switch to your Revie angels and bring in the powerful Michael - Strong Angel band.  You can begin any of these bands with Jeho if you'd like.  For the Contender version, use Captain to band to one of those Daniel angels to tutor Daniel who can band to the other Daniel angel.  With the current build, you can potentially have five heroes in the band:  Manasseeh - Jeho - Captain - Daniel's Guardian (who exchanges for Daniel) to Servants by the River (and a 6th when Michael Chief Prince comes out!).  I do recommend adding in Wall of Protection as you do not want this band used against you!  In the online game, Jayden ironically was playing some heroes that were similar to what I was doing, so he was able to easily band to my guys to use them against me.

The real territory destruction comes mostly from your defense, with Outsiders and Devouring Phillies, etc.  I put Love in the Reserve and could get it out with Fifth Seal to do the Devouring Phillies / Love territory destruction combo, but I don't rely on that much as he's pretty good by himself.

So, give these decks or variations a try, and have fun with them and bringing JB into play!  You won't always use him but when you do he's a rough one for your opponent!  Feel free to post any other cards/combos that you identify that you think would work great with this theme.
