This is a basic Judges/ Assyrians deck from a million years ago. 4x Samuel's edict and Six Assyrian Archers happens to still be really good. Basic versions of this went 9-2 throughout the season, winning TN State, EC Regionals and taking 3rd at Nationals and in T2-2P RNRS, which was really cool, considering I've never got to play or win enough to dent RNRS in any category.

Games
Kye's Daughter - 7-5 W
Jeremy C - 7-6 W
Greg M. 6-7 Loss
Win over Charles J? 7-2
Josiah B. 3-5 TL
Joe S. 7-1 W

Bummed that we didn't get to play, although I would've been bummed if I had lost to Judges so maybe it was better to not have the chance.

Nice looking deck though. How good was Judge's Seat for you? I've kind of slept in it for awhile since that seemed to be one of the first cuts so often that I eventually stopped even bothering to put it in initially.

I'm cutting judges seat going forward. Tyler advocated for it heavily, but it only really did anything in one game. It got shipwrecked a ton though, so maybe two is a good idea. Go Into Captivity was the stuff though.

Ah, makes sense. I suppose without Storehouse to draw the fire that makes sense. Jair can grab it from discard too though.

And huh, didn't even notice GIC on the first look through. Definitely a sneaky play with Endless Treasures. Tubal-Cain seems like it would be good but I guess that messes up the Unity for KTP3, but I am a little surprised to not see Pagan Sailors since Archer, Mounted Forces, and Rabsaris can band to them.

I didn't advocate for it heavily lol, I said if you have a slot it's a shipwreck/3W target which in of itself is invaluable. I have the same opinion as Jayden on this one, I always cut it first and it's nice to have as a constant potential discard, but I don't see this offense needing it, although I said it can help with Foreign Wives after she gets a block so you can start drawing again. Most people forget you can discard a card from hand to instead it. Great job on not only the deck list, but piloting it and cleaning it up all year. This deck was janky at state, i wasn't at regionals, but now it looks clean and straightforward, worthy of ranking, just liked we talked about. Awesome job this year.

I was the round 3 game. Turns out that if your deck is built around Protection of Jerusalem, you do well against Assyrian defenses :dunno:
ANB is good. Change my mind.
