A Tabernacle deck

I haven't had a deck for awhile, but after playing a little bit this year I thought I might as well put one together. This is what I came up with:

50 cards
LS: 8
Harvest
Awake
Imitate
Crowds
Humble
Distressed
Wanderer
Hopper

Doms: 7
SoG (OT)
TSC
Glory of the Lord
AotL (OT)
3 Woes
Crowd's Choice
Mayhem

Arts/Forts/Sites: 5
Crown of Thorns
The Cross
BotC
Tabernacle
Golgotha

Heroes: 10
John, the Fisherman
Polycarp
Music Leader
Hannah
David HAG
24 Elders
WwC
Zechariah, the Silent
The Magi
Joseph the Betrothed

GE: 6
No Need for Spices
Magnificat
Love Righteousness
Royal Parade
Overcome!
Light in the Darkness

DAC: 4
Fifth Seal
Reprimand/Repercussion
Delivered
Fire Foxes

EC: 7
Deceiver
FW
Herod Archelaus
Herod Antipas
Herod's Guard
Herod Philip II
Herod Agrippa I

EE: 3
Executioner's Sword
Revolt
Futile Inquisition


Reserve: 10
Elizabeth
LChildF
Hospitality in Bethany
Child is Born
His Sacrifice
Oath of Purity
Eternal Covenant
Brother's Conflict
Persian Horsemen
Contagious Fear


So the idea is to win wars of attrition by reusing powerful cards like No Need for Spices and R/R with Tabernacle, with the Cross up to shut down dominants. Then when you are late game switch to Persian Horsemen to Brother's Conflict to set up side battles where you recur LChildF with Hannah and bounce their Heroes and Brother's Conflict to hopefully block the rest of the game.

You can have infinite fodder for Tabernacle with Eternal Covenant to resurrect Heroes and Oath of Purity to bounce them. Also great for reusing Fifth Seal and Polycarp. Much of this does rely on your opponent not being able to interact with this, which almost necessitates the Cross. There's a ton of changes you could make; I know I've gone between Doms and Souls quite a bit. But it's a fun deck overall!
If you were to go on a trip... where would you like to go?
