How to play The Afflicted

Play Song of Moses, opponent searches out 5 heroes.

Then put The Afflicted in territory.   :maul:

Later, have another Brown or Gray EC that can play Crimson (Foreign Wives, Doeg, Lions, etc).

Play Hypocrisy and return all your opponent's heroes to hand.   :maul: :maul: :maul:

Nice combo. Might be easier to pull off in a mill deck with the Crimson/Gold one since then they couldn't just discard Heroes from their hand. Could use the hand-reducing curse too.

I guess you are speaking of The Outcasts.  Seems better also because it targets deck, which would be a random card rather than one they choose from their hand.

Seems like you don't necessarily need Song of Moses if you just wait until the mid to late game when they have 5-7 heroes in play. End your turn with Hypocrisy so they have a full hand, and then they will have to choose between losing Heroes and random cards from deck.
