Rotation Core Cards

Card
Expansion: Brigade of the Sky
Expansion: Chronogenesis
Expansion: Dawnbreak, Nightedge

Silva, Ardent SniperSilva is one of the cards that really helps this deck really go. It allows you to be able to trade into your opponents followers and deal damage at the same time! It's a really important part of the deck because you want to soften up your opponent before going for the big finish. 

In addition, Silva is a very good option to help push for the win in the late game because she does herself have ambush. So if you need that big push to help finish out the game, she can definitely get you there. 

Vengeful Puppeteer Noah: Noah is a very simple to understand card. He allows you to push for game when your opponent has a lower health total by giving all puppets in your hand storm. Throughout the game, you will accumulate a lot of puppets so it becomes important for you to hold on to some as to not give up your win.

Orchis, Puppet Girl: Orchis actually serves several functions within this deck because of it's choose mechanic. If you don't have any puppets in your hand, you are able to fill your hand with them to help finish the game off with Noah on the following turn. If you activate the dark side, it gives you the ability to be an alternate win condition. If you use her resolute puppet side, you are able to give help protect yourself if you are in a pinch.

Rotation Alternative Options

Card
Expansion: Dawnbreak, Nightedge
Expansion: Brigade of the Sky

Junk: Junk helps produce additional puppets to help you trade with your opponent's followers and / or keep them for the later game to help with your win condition. By himself, he produces 3 followers (himself, and 2 puppets)

Enkidu: Enkidu can be sort of an alternate win condition because he can produce a Gilgamesh if resonance is active. It is also a ward as well. 

Rotation Deck Mulligans

  • Any 2 PP Follower
  • Junk
  • Staircase to Paradise
  • Cucouroux, Green Gunsmith
  • Nicholas, Stalwart Inventor 

Rotation General Gameplan and Tips/Tricks

  • Try to keep at least 2 puppets in your hand if you can at all times. You will never know when you are going to remove something.

    • Using the synergy between Staircase to Paradise and Puppets, you can draw into a substantial amount of cards to help keep the engine running.

  • Vengeful Puppeteer Noah is your primary finisher for this deck. When you have a ton of puppets in your hand, you can use this to finish off your opponent pretty easily.

    • It is important to remember that the storm that Noah gives the puppets is actually a permanent ability.

  • If you happen to be running low on puppets, Orchis can help with this in the late game. She also doubles as your win condition should you already have a ton of puppets in your hand.

  • Due to the high amount of rush followers this deck produces, you don’t need to use your evolution points as much to help clear out bigger followers.

  • Cucouroux, Green Gunsmith in combination with Silva is a really good combination for generating of maintaining tempo. Even without Silva activated, this card is still quite good as an evolution target.

  • Noah + 1 Puppet = 5 Damage 
    • + 1 Silva activation = 6 Damage 
    • + Evo = 7 Damage
  • Noah + 2 Puppets = 7 Damage 
    • +1 Silva Activation = 8 Damage
    • + Evo = 9 Damage
  • Noah +3 Puppets = 9 Damage
    • +1 Silva Activation = 10 Damage
    • Evo = 11 Damage 
  • Noah + 4 Puppets = 11 Damage
    • + Silva Activation = 12 Damage
