Flood Survivor Death Blitz (FoM)

This is a tweaked version of a deck we were using for testing (also similar to this one http://www.cactusforums.com/type-1-deck-advice/flood-survivors-(play-test-deck)). The goal of this is pretty much have Covenant with Death or HSR up ASAP and for as long as possible, since they are so good with Flood Survivors (and CwD breaks the meta). A lot of things are missing that we did include at first (Faith of Noah, Faith of Isaac, Covenant with Prayer, I am Creator), but with ANB toned down now (and now that R&D hits set aside again) I don't think it's worth turning off CwD for any of those things.

Any ideas on how to make it better? Anyone plan on using FS this year??

I love CwD and it's pretty great in this meta. That being said, I not sure its actually good in this deck. In my Zeke/Justin deck, I sometimes found blocking difficult with CwD up. And that deck even had really good CBN bands with Kings of the Earth and Egyptian Rebel and Nebby's pride and Christians Suing for interrupts. The Dove Returns, Faith of Sarah, Faith Among Corruption and Animals Enter the Ark are all severely handicapped without TC capability. Also, I would still probably run You Will Remain even with Japheth's Wife being a thing.

If I need to use Faith of Sarah (pretty much only if Noah is discarded) then I'll shut it off, otherwise I'll just use Ham or Ham's Wife for Initiative to play those TC cards in battle (playing Enhancements in battle; what a concept!). AEtA is more for numbers in battle than anything, or with Nebby. I rarely used it even when CwD wasn't in the deck (pre-ANB change). I don't like Nebby's Pride with all the YWR, but CSA is a card I could easily see fitting in since the Noah band is so huge and Shem and Japheth's abilities are so great. Perhaps cutting AEtA for CSA would be good. Another great option for Behemoth/Leviathan/Nebby is Midianites Attack. But it's always a card I'd like to fit, yet never get around to it.

YWR wasn't even in the deck without CwD, and from all the experience this deck has against my music deck, I would not shut CwD off unless absolutely necessary (retrieving Noah or the Ark from discard are really the only times I would deactivate it, and then HSR goes up). Japheth's Wife in my experience makes it redundant, but if rescuing does become an issue, I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to fit in. Worst case, ANB starts a new battle phase if I have no other option.

Very awesome great looking deck here!!

There's probably room for improvement, but thanks! I will say at the start I was perhaps the most anti-ANB you can be, but I do like the Flood Survivor theme quite a bit and I am satisfied with how it turned out. :thumbup:

Fun idea! I agree with red wing though, i feel a different defense may work better, although I'm not sure what. I've always had a hard time making defenses that work with CWD. this one seems pretty solid though, so maybe you found the perfect way to run this deck.  :dunno:

I have heard Anted's are pretty great with Flood Survivors (not sure how they do with CwD). But they don't run Leviathan & Behemoth, so I suppose I may never know. ;)

CSA/Crimson Rehoboam are so strong with the flood.
