Phantom Howl Phantom Howl 4

"I'm coming...I'm coming...I'm coming...I'm coming...I'm coming...for you!"

One of, if not the most, feared shadow card in the game! While you have shadows, this card will summon ghosts that have storm. Those ghosts can hit your opponent directly for up to 5 burst damage (7 if you have an evolution point). Nothing more frightening than to see this card and you thought you had the game won. Phantom howl is almost a must have in many different shadow decks just for its raw power.

CardCost
Cerberus Unevolved Cerberus 5

"Time to go a little wild!!"

A fun and devastating card when played at the right time, cerberus is capable of helping turn a game around just simply by being played. By adding her hand puppets Coco and Mimi into your hand, in combination with your followers can put a serious hurting on your opponents leader.

It is worthy of note that Cerberus along with her puppets help add to your shadow count as well!

CardCost
Death's Breath Death's Breath 6

Ever want to just completely tell your opponent "no"? Well death's breath is the card to do it! With enough shadows, you can make an incredibly difficult to breakthrough wall of zombies that your opponent must deal with! You can certainly choose to play the card without the required number of shadows to create an army of zombies as well!

CardCost
Zombie Party Zombie Party 2

Who knew dealing 3 damage to an opponents follower was pretty good!? Who knew that enhancing it for 7 would also give you 3 more zombies?! Zombie party is a card that literally fits into every single shadow deck in no less than 3 off because of how powerful and versatile it is!

Deck Archetypes:

Aggro Shadowcraft can be a challenging yet rewarding deck that does require a bit of practice to get down. It focuses very heavily on setting up combination plays rather than a full straight on approach which makes it different than other aggro decks!

Control Shadowcraft (Often referred to as Nephthys shadow) is a deck that is centered around its main card, Nephthys. By using her ability to kill her own followers, she pairs very well with shadows goal to generate shadows as well as provide an overwhelming shift in momentum when played due to creating so much board presence.

Midrange Shadowcraft is a deck that relies on making wide and incredibly sticky boards that are difficult for your opponent to deal with. Through the use of cards such as Bone Chimera and Prince Catacomb, you can make boards that not only produce a lot of value but also generate a ton of shadows to help feed your necromancy abilities!
