Rotation Archetype Overview
Lindworm Dragoncraft is deck that revolves around its finisher, Lindworm, that can transform into two different followers, each with devastating effects! The condition for this transformation requires the player to play at least 10 non-follower cards and have 10 PP, so it is important to utilize many low-cost spells and amulets, as well as PP boost as much as possible! The condition may not be the easiest to fulfill, but it will definitely be worth it because Lindworm will then transform into either Virtuous Lindworm, which allows you to heal and draw cards, or Iniquitous Lindworm, a 10/10 follower that has Storm and ignores your opponent’s Ward abilities!

Rotation Core Cards
Seraphic Blade: An extremely useful destruction spell at all points during the game. Simply trading a 2-cost spell for a 2-cost follower is great enough, but this card goes even further and can destroy amulets! If this card is played for its Enhance cost, it can destroy any follower or amulet. Currently, this card is a great way to deal with Acceleratium (Portalcraft) and Tenko’s Shrine (Havencraft).
Adramelech: This card is extremely versatile, supporting this deck’s draw engine and mid- to late-game board control. As this deck has ample non-follower cards, one can expect his Fanfare effect to easily reach its full potential.
Lindworm: The primary finisher of the deck. The deck consists of many low-PP non-follower cards to get this out as soon as possible. Most of the time, Iniquitous Lindworm can follow the turn after Zooey, to deal nearly 20 damage.
Zooey, Arbiter of the Skies: Zooey has the ability to be utilized as a 1-cost, 1 draw spell (just like Insight), or it has the ability to be a powerful damage source to aid Lindworm’s lethal blow. On top of that, Zooey has the ability to nullify any damage to the leader for one turn (player defense becomes 1), essentially avoiding the opponent's lethal plays, such as from Lindworm, Giant Chimera, or Safira, Synthetic Beast.

Rotation Deck Mulligans
Blazing Breath: This is a must-keep against aggressive decks, especially when going second.
Aiela, Dragon Sword: Mainly kept when going second but also kept when going first as a 2/2 body against aggressive decks.
Dragon Oracle: Like many other Dragoncraft decks, successful PP boosting is key to the deck’s win condition!
Zooey, Arbiter of the Skies: This card can be used on the first turn to draw a card. Using Zooey in the late game requires that the Accelerate ability is used first, so it is a good card to keep in the mulligan.
Rotation General Gameplan and Tips/Tricks
The win condition of the deck is quite clear, and the entire game plan should revolve around it. Focus on PP-boosting early in the game, while using low cost spells to control the board.
Save Seraphic Blade or Adramelech for the mid- to late-game to deal with large followers.
When faced with a decision on whether to play Zooey first or Iniquitous Lindworm, it is generally better to play Zooey first, because Iniquitous Lindworm cannot be stopped by Ward followers. However, this decision depends on several factors, such as board presence, opponent’s ability to heal, and own life points.
