It’s virtually the same as Lions.

Mostly, except Reserve tends to be harsher than discard for a lot of decks, and Star Cards are stronger/more common in certain decks than others (and rarer than a good dominant). Honestly, giving lions a theme beyond just the normal animal protection of souls is nice, and killing things in various ways is fitting.

I would probably say "similar" rather than "virtually the same." I think one important distinction (as Asahel alluded to) is that it's easier to get Heroes back from being discarded and easier to get Evil Characters out of Reserve (since Deceiver is pretty much a staple).

I would instead say “Deja vu” 😉
