Vain Philosophy - played this a couple of times for Son of God but with Jonathan had to choose a hero instead while he had Son of God which paid off later throughout the game as he had to find heroes to rescue

Notes:
Swapping defenses made a huge difference.

Had great games. Went undefeated. Closest game was with Charles- Nabal top decked a Christian Martyr which was the only card which would keep the game going ending 5-4. Thank you all for the amazing games. So glad they were all streamed. A dream come true to see Redemption accessible online!

You don't say- I never would've guessed. Sealed is so boring. :P

But I am curious as to what your choices were for packs. RoJ & PoC? I would imagine at least one RoJ because of Job's Wife.

I too got the J deck at this year's MN states when I played sealed; the last time I'll ever play sealed with I & J. I was teetering between 2 RoJ or 2 PoC. I went with 2 PoC, but out of curiosity got the 2 RoJ just to see what I would've gotten (Ends and The Two Witnesses fml). But I did get Scattered, Scattered Sheep, Balaam's Teaching (traded), and Distortion. I cut the orange and went pure grey with a couple more grey characters thrown in. I also slotted in Red for an additional good brigade (Heldai & Amasai, Counsel of Abigail, David's Mighty Men, and The Battle is the Lord's). I added Manna as an artifact. Like this, the category was practically over before it started.
If you were to go on a trip... where would you like to go?

Opened 2 RoJ
Schafer opened 2 combined PoC and traded Edict and Auto for a lot of great stuff we traded to optimize each others decks to the fullest and went with his recommendation of swapping defense

I had the I deck and my defense included Devouring Lions, Job's wife, and Zophar, the Naamathite. That was fun, however, my offense was subpar when it came to speed.

I remember PoC, RoJ, CoW were all options for packs. Personally I went with PoC/RoJ
