I posted this on discord and threw a very similar version on type 1 deck advice. I'll just link that instead of saying what the offense does again. I added Noah/Goshen and Coliseum. Goshen/Coliseum with Windows of Narrow Light out with Mary protection is awesome. It's at 57 cards now. I went with the Lahmi/Goshen defense. Phicol, Commanders to Lahmi while Goshen/Coliseum with add to battle is very strong. I toss nearly everything and have a 3 character band where most of my enhancements do not get tossed. Armor Bearer to get back Lahmi is also very nice. The opponent has to have enough single brigade, non-CBN enhancements, or they have to get around one, or both, fortresses. My deck is built for that, and sets up everything very quickly.

Windows negates Mary though, right? Or did you just mean having the option between Windows and Mary?

I like it though. Curious to try it out.

Yeah, Windows negates Mary. This deck just has difference options and ways to attack. The issue I am finding with this offense is it sets up super quick, but I am reliant on the band/setup or Shared Meal, the Reserve/deck can be changed up a bit, i.e. add Royal Parade to deck, maybe Mordecai and Faith Unbowed for a couple stronger main deck attacks.

I built a list similar to this (less defensive and flexible since I am missing some of your main cards, 50 cards only) and will be testing out how the strategy goes. I have been playing a straight Ruth line-up with moabites, Humble Seeker, and Mary to test out the Meek strategy to some success. This new version looks more promising.
Cards I am not running from your list:
1   Lost Soul "Humble" (James 4:6/Proverbs 3:34) (RoJ AB)
 -I do not own this card and replaced with Blind LS
1   Lost Soul (Awake)
 -I do not own this card and removed it to meet the deck size of 50
1   Lost Soul (Punisher) (FoM)
 -I do not own this card and replaced with Fool LS
1   Lost Soul "Forsaken" (Hebrews 10:25) (CoW AB)
 -I do not own this card and replaced with Remnant LS
1   Christian Martyr (2019) (Promo)
 -Removed to meet the deck size of 50
1   Storehouse (Promo)
 -I do not own this card and removed it to meet the deck size of 50
1   Coliseum (CoW AB)
 -I do not own this card and removed it to meet the deck size of 50
1   Sheol
 -I do not own this card and removed it to meet the deck size of 50
1   Delivered
 -I do not own this card and removed it to meet the deck size of 50
1   Zerubbabel, the Chosen / Zerubbabel, the Builder (LoC Plus)
 -I do not own this card and Replaced with Abihud so I can still get the Impartial Judgment play off with Awesome Things
1   The Emmaus Road
 -I do not own this card and Replaced with Light in the Darkness
1   Demetrius the Silversmith
 -I do not own this card and removed it to meet the deck size of 50
1   Plot to Kill (RoJ AB)
 -I do not own this card and replaced with Aliens (B/PG)
1   Seized by Rioters
 -I do not own this card and replaced with Scattered Sheep
1   Baal Worship (FoM)
 -I do not own this card and replaced with Besieged
Reserve
1   Flying Scroll (PoC)
 -I do not own this card and replaced with Goliath's Curse
1   Broken Covenant (CoW AB)
 -I do not own this card and replaced with Confusion of the Mind

I can already theorycraft that this deck will struggle more on rescues and may suffer when defending if our Goshen is out with the other Mult-Brigade EH. Otherwise it should be more consistent and nearly as fast. It does take a hit from not having Zeru, Emmaus Road, and your LS line up. I will let y'all know how my games go.
