Title: Musical Throne (Everything all at once)
Post by: Master Q on March 12, 2019, 05:44:12 PM
In one form or another, this was the main deck I was testing the 1 Dom per turn concept with about a month ago (against the Green Machine). It's perhaps an odd mismatch of things cobbled together, but if it comes up just right, it sings. ;)

Lost Souls: 8
Darkness
Blind
Wanderer
Covet
Prosperity
Vindicated
Orphans
Hopper

Dominants: 7
SoG
TSC
AotL
3 Woes
Mayhem
CM
FA (w)

Arts/Forts/Sites: 6
The Great White Throne
Book of the Covenant
You Will Remain
The Fall of Man
The Gates of Hell
The Throne of David

Heroes: 10
AutO
Captain of the Host (p)
Joshua
Samuel
David, the Shepherd
King Solomon
Music Leader
The Mighty Warrior
The Twenty-Four Elders
Cheneniah

GE: 5
Faith
Counsel of Abigail
Passover Hymn
A Soldierís Prayer
The Coming Prince

DAC: 5
King Jehu
King Saul
Kinsmenís Agreement
Sixth Bowl of Wrath
Davidís Census

EC: 7
Red Dragon
Abaddon, the Destroyer
The Deceiver
King of Tyrus (PoC)
Frog Demons
Kings of the Earth
King Darius

EE: 2
The Wages of Sin
Blasphemies


Reserve: 10
I am Creator
Cov w Palestine
Covenant of Prayer
Faith of David
Faith of Samuel
Coliseum
Foreign Wives
Necromancer
Treasures of War
Wickedness of the Tenants


If you're droughted there's not a whole lot you can do, but the potential for quick starts is great and there's a lot of different options once all the pieces come together. I don't really have plans on re-using or re-working this deck once the PoC phase 2 drops, but it was an interesting experiment.

Oh yes, I believe this works. I actually had something similar last year. Granted, it was before PoC came out, but it still worked remarkably well, so I can only imagine how much better it works now.

For drought, I feel like majestic heavens could fit well in this deck.

Without having played the deck, I would probably move King Darius or Kongís of the Earth to reserve (accessible through frog demons, the deceiver, and Darius can be topdecked with Majestic)

I realize this cuts down slightly on battle extensions for sixth bowl, but donít see it having a worse impact than drought.

Was in, but the game usually ends by the time they become useful, so I didn't put them in. I used to have Unknown Nation in here over Fall of Man, so maybe if I swapped those two again I could put him in for FW, but I'm not convinced that will be better.

MH was actually in the deck to start (when it looked closer to my RevMusic deck), but the Reserve access isn't needed and it only really works for soul-drought once (making Hopper generally better). But I do think Hopper for Ends might do better for drought.

Ah yes. Good ol' Kongs of the Earth. ;) I'd probably rather have them in deck if I'm going to use them, as my Reserve spots are pretty tight as-is.

No Uzzah?

Between Orphans, Coliseum, and not using Humble, I just didn't include him. But it wouldn't be hard to fit him in with some tweaks (or even just swapping FW for Uzzah could potentially work fine).

I'm running Orphans and Melk in my teal deck, play against Babel all the time, and still get an Uzzah block almost every game. Uzzah is hands down the single defense card across all my recent decks that has won me the most games. I can't imagine running a deck without him in Reserve. Humble is also an absolute staple for me.

I'd recommend putting Covenant with David in your reserve and figuring out a way to slide I am creator into your deck. That way book and I am creator likely become extra copies of heroes you want. And, obviously, Covenant with David can get out a lot of nastys on your defense.

I'd probably actually do CwDavid in deck since it's a music card for Music Leader. But it is one of the cards I wanted to fit in.
