2015 Nats T2 MP 2nd place
« on: August 08, 2015, 12:42:14 PM »
This deck was supposed to be a second deck for two player but the defense had too much to tech against, and I didn't have enough time to playtest it. The offense was built to be an ongoing cbn recurring band, the defense was the same. My problem was the defense is what is fast but not one person would attack me in MP so I never got to draw, which meant I never got to get my offense going. I made a MP deck with speed on both sides, searching and side battles, but realized I wouldn't deck check this deck in, so I decided to use this for MP instead. I am going off of memory so might not be 100% exact, but oh well no one will know.
100 cards

14 ls

Hezzy's Ring
Darius' Decree x2

Foreign Sword x2

Damascus x2

Gomer (brown) x2
King Manessah (brown/pg) x1
Messenger of Satan (orange) x2
Pharisees x3
Scribe x2
The Sanhedrin x2
Proud Pharisees x4
The Entrapping Pharisees x1

Gibeonite Trickery x4
Pretension x3
Balaam's Disobedience x4
Scattered x1
Just a Hireling x2

Michael x2
Attending Angel x2
Gabriel (I/J) x2
Ahimelek x2
Ishmaiah x2
Spy x3
David x1
Daniel x2
ET x2

Battle Cry x3
Soldier's Prayer x3
Bravery of David x2
Angel's Sword x2
The Second Seal x2
Overwhelming Presence x3

I'll be honest, I really don't remember everything because I have a much faster, better version of this deck now and they are merging together. So it's not exact and the numbers might be off, but close enough, the strategy is all that counts.

Ok so the deck was made around the defense. A cbn recurring band that draws and is very hard to get through. An Isaiah/Danie hurts it so the Pretension helps to stall. The basic block: Gomer to Messenger of Satan to Scribe to Pharisees to all Pharisees. Put Gib Trick under deck, draw a bunch and play first. Next block, same band but now you started the infinite loop of Gib Trick under deck, draw it, play it. Rinse and repeat. Once you get out more of the band you can do Scribe/The Sanhedrin both x2 in battle or 2-4 Proud Pharisees for more drawing or whatever.
The offense was inspired by the defense. The usual attack is Spy, play battle cry, band in your hero's, and choose the order of abilities in which they activate. Usually you band in the Canaanites with Sword and it gets the job done, but the silver is the cbn recurring part. Band in Michael then Attending/Gabriel to get out your next good enh or a needed battle winner, then recur Overwhelming with Gabriel. Band in ET last, play Overwhelming off of Michael, cbn underdeck. The silver part does the same, Michael with sword, play second seal, same dudes but ET last. Before their abilities activate all their EC's are underdecked. Rinse and repeat.
Since then I cut out the red, made it extremely fast and took out some defense for Forgotten History x3-4, Messenger of Satan x2 (pg), and one more King Manessah. I'll post that deck next, but this one took second in multiplayer mostly by luck. Josh let me draw into my SOG/NJ to time win in the last RA, and I got a successful RA, and drew into NJ on the last round for another win.

Nice deck as always Tyler!  :)  I think 1 last rescue I was attacking with Paul and you blocked messenger o' stan and drew a thousand cards and won?  :D
If I were ever to challenge you to a duel your best bet would be battle axes in a very dark basement
