Rotation Archetype Overview

Lishenna Portalcraft is a new archetype that is centered around Lishenna, Omen of Destruction released in the Omen of the Ten expansion. When Lishenna evolves, a powerful 10-PP amulet called Destruction of White is put in hand, and its cost decreases every time an allied follower is destroyed. When Destruction of White is played, Destruction of Black is put in hand, which also has the same cost reduction ability. Destruction of Black’s effect is reminiscent of Path to Purgatory, dealing 5 damage to all enemies at the beginning of the turn or 10 damage if Destruction of White is also on the field. To fully utilize these amulets, the deck runs a Puppet engine, with each destroyed Puppet reducing the cost of the Destruction amulets.

Rotation Core Cards

Card

Expansion: Omen of the Ten
Expansion: Omen of the Ten
Expansion: Chronogenesis
Expansion: Dawnbreak, Nightedge

Lococo, Little Puppeteer: It is important to save at least one evolution point for Lishenna in this deck, so cards like Lococo that can deal with large followers and produce Puppets aligns well with the deck’s concept.

Disciple of Destruction: An important draw engine of the deck. This increases the chance of drawing into Lishenna, and it can also help reduce the cost of Destruction amulets.

Lishenna, Omen of Destruction: The main card of the deck. Access to the Destruction amulets require this follower to evolve, so it is imperative that this card is in hand early in the game.

Puppet Room: This single amulet provides a total of 4 Puppets, supplying ‘bullets’ for Orchis or reducing the cost of Destruction amulets.

Orchis, Puppet Girl: An alternative win condition of the deck. All three forms of Orchis are useful in this deck. Orchis, Puppet Girl can provide 3 additional Puppets, which can be used for board control and reducing the costs of Destruction amulets. Orchis, Vengeful Puppet is a great way to pressure the opponent or finish them off. Orchis, Resolute Puppet is great at defense, and the resulting Lloyd may provide the player with one additional turn for the Destruction of Black finish.

Rotation Alternative Options

Card
Expansion: Starforged Legends
Expansion: Chronogenesis
Expansion: Dawnbreak, Nightedge
Expansion: Omen of the Ten
Expansion: Omen of the Ten
Expansion: Chronogenesis

Purehearted Singer: Great draw engine to access key cards in the deck.

Automaton Knight / Junk / Puppeteer’s Strings: These are alternative options for making Puppets.

Servant of Destruction: Follower with good stats and the ability to deal 3 damage to an opponent follower. The ability requires a sacrifice, so it would be good to use Puppets or Destruction amulets as the cost.

Apostle of Destruction: This ‘copies’ any allied follower or amulet, which could be used with Destruction amulets.

Rotation Budget Options

Lishenna and Lococo are essential legendaries in this deck. Silva and Orchis are extremely powerful and provide alternative win conditions, but is not absolutely necessary, especially when on a budget. Consider removing these cards (or at least a few copies) to draw engines such as Purehearted Singer or Puppet-generators such as Automaton Knight and Junk.

Rotation Deck Mulligans

Bear Puppeteer / Flower Doll / Lococo, Little Puppeteer: Great 2-PP followers to start the game off.

Cucourox, Green Gunsmith: Preferable card to keep especially when going first. Without spells to destroy her, this single card may take over the entire early-game.

Lishenna, Omen of Destruction: This is the key card of the deck, so it is essential to mulligan for it, regardless of the opponent’s deck type.

Silva, Ardent Sniper: This is a card to keep only in combination with other 2- or 3-PP followers. Its accelerate ability works great with Cucourox.

Substitution: This card is worth keeping against aggressive decks.

Rotation General Gameplan and Tips/Tricks

  • The Destruction amulets can take a while to set up, so the goal of the early- to mid-game is to maintain board control and staying at healthy life points. If Lishenna is not in hand, use the draw engines in the deck to access it immediately.

  • A key point with regards to Destruction of Black is that it deals damage at the beginning of the controlling player’s turn, and not at the end like Path of Purgatory. Therefore, there is a ‘one-turn’ lag in dealing damage.

  • When playing Destruction of Black, be wary of two cards: Valse, Magical Marksman (Swordcraft)  and Fall from Grace (Neutral). They are both capable of getting rid of the amulet.

  • Cards such as Servant of Destruction and Destructive Refrain activate powerful abilities by destroying an allied follower or amulet (without countdown). Combine these with Puppets or Destruction amulets that do not get destroyed by effects!
