Wow, gotta say I wasn't expecting to see Four Horns. I do love surprise old cards.

Why Amos? Shuffle one card if they have board advantage isn't awful, but I find Flood has board advantage so often that I'm not sure how often you'll get to use it (though admittedly that may be rooted in the different ways we play Flood).

I've been going back and forth on new Shem vs. old Shem. Was there anything in particular that led to you choosing this one?

Any particular reason for Lamech as your reserve hero Noah tutor? What advantages does he offer over, say, Winds?

ANB is good. Change my mind.

Amos - Star Ability for consistency, never used otherwise
Lamech - can play set up TC stuff and can be shuffled around. Winds may be better
New Shem is better. Flood plays a fair battle oriented game and he does that better than the old one.

Would you mostly be using Amos' star to grab your own soul or an opponent's? I'm sure it's situational, but if your opponent has a soul you'd probably go for your own, right? If that's the case I think Moses, Friend of God would be better. I've found him to be pretty useful in my Prophets deck, but I guess Amos could be better if you really just need to hit Exiles.

Hitting Exiles or Remnant turn one is huge. However, if it pops outside of t1, then you play the opponents. It playing your wicked is big in the current meta
