Wild Encounter!

So I was thinking up what a FBTN-style splash offense deck would look like nowadays. This started with a gray defense… but then I thought it might be fun to make it a sort of “boss-rush” kind of deck, and it soon devolved into this mess. More of a fun trial of concept than anything.

LS: 8
Exiles
Hunter
Remnant
Prosperity
Darkness
Wanderer
Covet
Hopper

Doms: 7
SoG
TSC
Grapes
3 Woes
CotK
Doubt
Mayhem

Support: 6
Endless Treasures
Babel
Damascus (LoC)
Gates of Hell
Coliseum
Treacherous Land

Heroes: 11
AutO
Gideon (CoW)
Moses (CoW)
Joshua (CoW)
Captain (war)
Simeon (war)
Michael, Arch
TSA (RoJ)
Servant Angel
Angels of Wrath
Priests of Christ

GE: 4
Sword of the Spirit
Fountains of Living Water
Faith of Gideon
Everlasting Beings

DAC: 3
War in Heaven
Fourth Bowl of Wrath
Fifth Bowl of Wrath

EC: 7
The Deceiver
King of Tyrus (PoC)
Red Dragon
Abaddon, the Destroyer
The Fallen Star
The god of This World
The Divining Damsel

EE: 4
Lurking (p)
Table of Demons
Blindness
Blasphemies


Reserve: 10
IaC
24 Elders
Noah (LoC)
Seventh Bowl of Wrath
Unsuccessful
Unknown Nation
Foreign Wives
Emperor Nero (p)
The Judean Mediums
Seven Sons of Sceva


I really want to fit Valley of Dry Bones in here. At the same time, I really like the idea of using all the other dominants already in the deck too. I thought about making it a true ‘wild encounter’ deck with an animal focus (Leviathan, Behemoth, etc), but didn’t end up with enough space to do what I imagined. Maybe at 57? Not many of the newer cards (aside from Noah) struck me as fitting in a deck like this given the brigades I’m using, but maybe I’m missing something great.

Can your defense easily stop this offense? I think that the answer is yes. I like the concept of rush decks, especially in T1, but this has an auto Gideon faith rescue, and a couple btn bands. You can do this other ways that are much stronger and consistent. Try to think of ways you can negate their stuff and your stuff works through it. PoC Zechariah for example. PoC Isaiah with CwD up is good. Faith could work with what I just mentioned and you can keep Moses and have Faith of Samuel. Same concept but stronger, IMO.

Yeah, that was basically the concept for my T1 deck last year. Create a strong opening with many good leads (AutO, Sam, Moses, Isaiah, Elijah) and set up quickly even under CwD (which, btw, I do not think will be prominent this year). It was very effective. But those green guys usually need some backup, and I wanted as little as possible this time around. I also didn't want to do more green...

I see many places where I could make cuts and swaps here, but this is more of a 'see what works' type of build at the moment.
