T2 2P 3rd place Nats 2020 (Creation 2.0)

First off I want to thank everyone who helped me work on the deck to get prepped for Nats. It was tough to prepare this season with no Tournaments but I managed to get 1 practice game with Tyler Stevens in. Tyler was a massive help over all bouncing ideas off him and getting feedback. I also want to thank Jeremy Chambers, Chris Fachman, and Marcus Parker for their help too.

Overall the deck preformed not exactly how I envisioned but more solid than I thought. I only 1st turned Creation of the world once out of 5 games. Mostly because my opponents were droughting or didn't have a block but still wasn't completely ideal. I also had a game where a woes negated the Creation, and another where I never played it. Despite the non ideal situations I finished with 3 full wins, 2 timeout losses (5-6 to Tyler Stevens and 4-5 to Jayden Alstad), and a +13 differential. I was tied with Jayden on pts for 2nd and lost due to the head to head matchup though with a better differential. Here's the list.

104 cards

Souls 14
1x Remnant
1x Blind
2x Distressed
2x Exiles
2x Foreigner
2x Humble
2x Hunter

1x Three Woes
3x Jacobs Ladder
2x Book of the Covenant
1x Hezekiah's Signet Ring
1x Deceit and Vengeance
1x Land Dispute
1x Coat of Many Colors
1x Tree of Knowledge
1x Forbidden Fruit

Good Cards 39
1x Issac, Willing Sacrifice
1x Perez, the younger
1x Abraham (CoW)
1x Hezron the Enclosed
1x Noah (CoW)
1x Mahalalel the Interpreter
1x Methuselah (His Death Brings)
1x Benjamin
1x Abram's Army
1x Jared the Beholder
1x Lot
1x Joseph the Dreamer
1x Enosh the Worshiper
1x Judah, the Leader
1x Melchizedek
1x Jacob (FooF)
1x Midianite's Slave
1x Rachel
1x First Sacrifice
1x Offering Your Son
2x Judah's Intervention
2x Joseph Before Pharaoh
1x Abraham's Descendant (LoC)
1x Answer to Prayer
1x Forgiveness of Joseph
1x Israel's Bow
1x Creation of the World
1x Solomon's Dream
2x Covenant with Philistia
1x Covenant with Abraham
1x Storehouse
1x Guardian of your souls
1x Angel of the Lord
1x Son of God
1x Second Coming
1x Valley of Dry Bones

Evil Cards 39
2x The deceiver
3x Syrian Mercenaries
1x King Rezin
1x Captain of the Chariots
1x The Strong Force
1x King Hazael
2x Syrian Archer
1x The Syrian Reinforcements
1x False Leaders
1x Balaam
1x Idol Worship
2x Scattered Sheep
3x False Prophecy
3x Balaam's Disobedience
3x Arrest in Jerusalem
3x Syrian Victory
3x Unsuccessful
2x Sheol
1x Doubt
1x Burial
1x Shipwreck
1x Falling Away (Wo)
1x Christian Martyr

Reserve 15
1x False Peace (PoC)
1x Hypocrites Proselyte
1x Foreign Exile
1x False Prophecy
2x Namaan's Chariot and Horses
1x Damascus (TEC)
1x Land Dispute
1x Delivered
1x Covenant with Noah
1x You will Remain
1x Answer to Prayer
1x Abraham's Descendant (LoC)
1x A Soliders Prayer
1x The Three Visitors

So how the offense aims to win via the creation band is to use jacob to play a CBN enhancement because of Benjamin. The rest is mostly set up to draw a lot, recur/find a cards you need and negate problems. Defensively its more about play first and CBN options. Solomons Dream and A soliders prayer seem odd at first but since I do have easy access to a meek hero Solomons dream is amazing and Abrams Army can play A Soldiers prayer to get/recur whatever is necessary. More than once I used them to get doms. I think moving forward I would like to probably fit in Orphans soul and some more ways to deal with cards in territories but I dont think this deck is far off from being properly tuned. The only game the deck truly struggled was against Jayden where I drew abysmally, jayden drew and played great, and in the end it was still a close game. The game against Tyler Stevens is probably my favorite game I've played to date and I think proved that creation deserves to be considered as a top T2 option moving forward. It was great fun and hopefully I can continue to make this deck even better moving forwards. If you have any questions or comments or anything feel free to share.

I love this community and thanks for taking the time to check out the deck.

First of all my compliments to you for creating such a unique build. I really like the concept here.

Would you mind writing up a summary of all the ways you have to get to Joseph, the Dreamer in this deck? I have an idea after looking through the list but it would be great to have a summary on this from the creator of the deck. He seems pretty integral to pulling all of this off and I am guessing your goal is to get him T1.

Joseph the Dreamer is the go to 1st turn play. Ill make a more in depth write up here soon. I still want to take a further look into what I may change moving forward but ill include my thoughts on that as well.

Thanks. You posted that two days ago and I totally missed it. I had been watching for it too! Thanks for the follow up. I think your post got buried under a bunch of ruling questions that have been populating the forums. I should have been paying closer attention.
