Battle Extenders

Hey guys,

So I'm looking for a list of cards that help extend the battle.  I've seen Josiah's deck and am going to be building a deck (somewhat) similar to it.  I'm working on my "introduction decks" and would like to introduce new players to the concept of extending the battle, but not quite making it as strong as that deck.  So I'd like to start with a list of cards that help extend the battle and then go from there.  Here is what I can think of off hand.

You Will Remain
Unknown Nation
Madness
Gates of Hell
Solomon's Temple
Faith of David

Off the top of my head...

Death of Family
Boaz's Sandal
Indentured Servant
Japheth's Wife (with promo Ark)
Jacob's Ladder
Nahum

Several of these are PoC, and all are fairly situational, but they're options. The Ruth stuff in particular has some fun potential, since you can easily recur Death of Family and have both Sandal and YWR.
ANB is good. Change my mind.

I would argue Not Alone has a quasi-battle extending ability.  8)

(Not to mention Lurking on the evil side).

Also, Herod's Temple acts similar to Solomon's Temple.

Have you checked the REG?
Have you looked it up in ORCID?

Sodom & Gomorrah (Site)
Slayer's Glee

You can get 5 battle extenders (which is too much for a deck, it dilutes it too much, but it would emphasize the concept for sure!) in a Black/Orange Canaanite defense.

Battle Extenders:
Gates of Hell
Madness
Sodom & Gomorrah
Slayer's Glee
Unknown Nation

Defense:
The Deceiver
KoT (Orange or Orange/Black)
Prince of Tyrus (Orange)
Foreign Wives (technically a Black/Orange Canaanite!)
Random assortment of Black human Canaanites
Random Black/Orange EEs, including some capture cards

Unholy Writ and Go Into Captivity would also work well in this deck, as they can create fodder for Sodom/Gomorrah.  And if 4 Orange ECs isn't enough, you can always include Abaddon, who is great in any deck containing Gates of Hell.
