Here is my try at a Women style deck. I am wanting it to be fun and somewhat competitive to keep it interesting. I feel fairly confident the defense can get several blocks. Less confident in the offense and my choice of GEs, but I will give it a go and adapt from there.
Priest of Christ is genderless and the play there would be to grab it first round and attempt an RA, forcing opponent to block from hand triggering a Dom search or go to The Woman with Child.
Confusion of Mind because CwD disrupts this deck. Thorns and Thistles to keep the pressure on of negating characters in territory.
Women as Snares is making a comeback! Take opponents male offense without running a Purple Reach/AoCp and nuking my own defense.

Godspeed,
Mike

Honestly any deck that runs Women as Snares gets a + 1 from me.

I would probably run Hannah over Faithful Servant - much as I love seeing old promos, Hannah does the soul protection better while also getting a Damsel effect.
How are you getting IaC from reserve turn one, when you need it? I'd try to slot in an Exiles soul (likely over the Gain - I think you have enough reserve access that shuffling with Gain actually gets you want you want slower).
ANB is good. Change my mind.

Remnant LS or Covenant of Prayer to The Angel of the Winds is a potential 1st turn Priest of Christ. Hannah would be a good exchange for Faithful Servant. In the original build idea FS was there for Reach/AoCp action and then she was left in for her white brigade and slightly larger numbers than Hannah.
IaC is there to be pulled in case of some Hero drought...

Godspeed,
Mike

I know it’s hard to tell from the art but Faithful Servant is a male.
Have you visited the Land of Redemption today?

I thought I had Imitate in there to boost Gain, but obviously I don't. I would look at taking out Forsaken for Imitate or switching Gain for Exiles. Hunter is there to get my Remnant or if mine is out to go dig around in my opponents deck.

Godspeed,
Mike

I think it's worth considering adding Sin and Justice on evil. Once you have enough resources, heroes like Susanna are just going to sit there, and banishing them to kill what may well be most of your opponent's entire defense is almost always worth it.

Good call on adding Sin and Justice. Not a battle winner, but in the long game wins battles.

I'm pretty sure it wins battles 90% or better of the time Mike.

You are right. For some reason I had it stuck in my head it was a Territory Class enhancement similar to Lost Anointing. Thanks for pointing that out. Maybe switch it for Joy in main deck? Or run it in reserve? I am leaning toward main deck.

Mike

after playing this deck a few times... some changes have been made...
The Woman with Child is in Reserve and pulled with Life Through Christ for a "Protect that Hero from evil cards this turn." RA setup...
I still think the deck is running sub-optimal and part of that is lack of duplicate cards to optimize, but the deck is fun to play...
It continues to be a work in process and any/all input is appreciated with what should be changed out...
Sin and Justice rocks as well as a sneaky Women as Snares...



Godspeed,
Mike

It is a good way to search out NJ if you haven't drawn it already and a 3/3 multi-brigade genderless hero... may be worth looking into... thanks..
