2018 Nats Type-2 2nd Place (Long Overdue)
« on: March 14, 2019, 11:39:23 AM »
Hello all, I finally have gotten around to posting the deck list from Nats last year that I placed 2nd in Type-2 with. This is long overdue, and I can't realistically recall each game that year. I know that it was an extremely close tournament day the whole way through, and I had some really fun games! I don't have a name for this deck, but it is heavily reliant upon Music Leader to get lost souls, negates, and battle winners for both my good and evil characters.
Without further ado, here is the decklist:

Golden Censer
Household Idols
Image of the Beast
The Woman with Child
John, the Revelator

With this deck the real game plan is to get Music Leader and one of the searching evil characters out as early as possible. Once Music Leader is out I could usually get Justin Martyr out right away since he is the real Deck MVP. Blood of the Lamb is amazing, because its full ability is such a good swing in battles in my favor usually. My offense has few battle winners, because I usually could only really on negates since most evil characters I came against got first initiative. That being said, if I got to the end game and my opponent has run out of EEs, I took my lone heroes and attacked the defense with at least three negates each turn until my opponent needed to let me through. It worked pretty well, and the defense is banding brown to allow me time to build up a consistent offense to lay siege to the opponent with. Having Broken Covenant with Warning Against Rebellion is especially good since I could usually just get a draw 3 or discard a YWR. WAR was also usually an unexpected battle winner.

What I would change? I would lean much more into Martyrs because Asaph is just for intimidation (which he totally was), and Cheneniah isn't strong enough with the chump blocks that were going around and without a Joy stuck to him. My defense was also more of, "I have one copy when I would like two, like with Job's Wife, but I just can't get more," than, "this is the best I could think of." Ultimately the deck worked just fine, but there were several cards that I never got to use.

I believe I've mentioned this before, but having played this deck (and slight variations of it) many times, I can definitely say that one of the things that makes it stronger than you might expect just from looking at it on paper is how well Nathan pilots it. He rarely misses Music Leader triggers and just seemingly always makes the right play (at least when he plays me... :o).
