Hi there,

since I like O.T. themes I tried to build a deck around one (well somehow). While not entirely focussing on the biblical context I tried to create something deck discard related (not to its fullest extend) and own rescues without opponents souls by getting Moses into territory by Shiprah and equipping him with Faith of Enoch in order to penetrate opponent to discard him for a rescue. Similar for Prisoner. He shell go to opponent's LoB in order to be rescued by Lamb's R. later on.

It is fun to play but unfortunately deck is still quite slow. So your ideas, opinions, hints, tips and thoughts are highly welcome!  :)

Any chance to get something like this a little bit more competitive?

So here we go:

Support Cards:
Book of the Covenant (PoC)
Hezekiah's Signet Ring
House of Prayer
Pithom
Given Over to Egypt

DACs:
Prisoner at Gaza
Pharaoh's Daughter (FoM)

Heroes:
Moses' Parents
The Shunammite Woman
Shiphrah
Hur (PoC)
Moses (CoW)
Indentured Servant
Aaron (Di)
The Destroyer (PoC)

GEs:
Faith of Moses Parents
Death of Firstborn (PoC)
Faith
Faith of Moses
Words of Encouragement (Ki)
Cymbals of the Levites
Plague of Blood (PoC)
"I AM" Has Sent Me

ECs
Queen Tahpenes
Taskmaster (FoM)
The Hard Hearted Pharaoh (CoW)
The Murdering Pharaoh
Egyptian Magicians
Egyptian Wise Men (FoM)
Potiphar's Wife (PoC)

EEs:
Egyptian Horses
Evicted
Reclaimed by Egypt
Ruthless
Turn to Egypt
Swift Horses (D)
Abandonment (EC)

Dominants:
Grapes of Wrath
The Second Coming
Three Woes (RoJ)
Christian Martyr (J)
Falling Away (CoW)
Angel of the Lord (J)
Son of God (J)

Lost Souls:
Lost Soul (Gain)
Lost Soul (Darkness)
Lost Soul (Dull)
Lost Soul (Imitate)
Lost Soul (Lawless)
Lost Soul (Vindicated)
Lost Soul (Wicked)


Reserve:
You Will Remain
Unknown Nation (PoC)
Foreign Wives
Faith of Enoch
Covenant with Moses (PoC)
Jacob (Israel) (CoW)
Lamb's Righteousness (RoJ)
Wonders Forgotten
Faith of Samuel
Jephthah (J)

Bye

Adding the Genesis Egyptians (Magicians, Cupbearer, Dreaming Pharoah) will help with the speed. Musical stuff (Miriam, Music Leaders, Hannah) would help as well.

Why are Jephthah and Jacob (Israel) in reserve?

Thanks for your hints: Any suggestion what to cut for them?

Jepth is in for Prisoner in order to reduce defense from territory. Jacob is in since hand and deck seem to be increasing targets these days.  :)

I wish I had spoiled The Exodus, Moses’ Staff, Passover, Pharaoh’s Servants, Grain Tenders and Summoned to Interpret. Those could all work so well in this deck! I’ll try to get a spoiler article sent to LoR ASAP.

Well, it seems my idea of adding Jephthah's Daughter for some White/Gold, musician, add Jephthah from deck, discard or Reserve and choose a human in opponents territory to block him might be a little underwhelming in consideration of the above to be spoiled options.   :o

Godspeed,

In a previous version of my Musicians deck I had exactly this also in: Jepths daughter, him in reserve. But both did not make it into current version.

Ok, copied over my post from here:

Honestly I do not see the deck DC option as a valid one anymore due to too much protection around getting its coronation by the new storehouse. So maybe other Egyptians might fit better now in defense (which would make a nearly "pure" exodus theme a harder task then).
For the drawing Egyptians I might have a look again - so far I could "only" find some drawing you one card when pushed into battle while not having so much synergies with better characters (in terms of SA).

Deck discard is stronger than its ever been. You do need to include counters to deck protection though.

Keep in mind that Pithom not only has a deck d/c ability, but also the ability to underdeck good cards from an opponent's territory, which would include Storehouse.

Have you checked the REG?

Sorry for the late reply and thanks for all your hints!

Any idea on how to combine them with CoW Moses? For the GEs Prophetess can help out - but what about regarding these cool TC class ECs? How keep them and even better also these GEs active and usable all the time with that good old guy around (would like to keep him in deck)?
