Rotation Archetype Overview

Tenko Havencraft is a deck centered around Tenko’s Shrine, an amulet that deals damage whenever an ally defense is restored. This deck aims to control the board while keeping a healthy amount of life points, ultimately stripping the opponent of their resources. The amulet has been nerfed once, but it is still capable of being a threat to other archetypes in the meta!

Rotation Core Cards

Expansion: Dawnbreak, Nightedge
Expansion: Brigade of the Sky

De La Fille, Gem Princess: Excellent Ward follower that gives a peent healing ability to the leader and followers every turn. This ensures Tenko’s Shrine activates, even when resources are scarce.

Whitefang Temple: Definitely a card that was made to be paired with Tenko’s Shrine. This amulet heals you every turn and when its count hits 0, a 6/6 follower comes out!

Tenko’s Shrine: The main win condition of the deck. This amulet deals damage to follower or opponent leader everytime a healing ability activates.

Sealed Tome: Though it is not nearly as powerful after the card adjustment, this card still provides a good draw engine for the deck.

Seraphic Blade: Excellent removal spell at all phases of the game.

Bashful Al-mi’raj: A 3-PP follower with good stats and self-healing ability. Few followers provide persistent healing ability, making this card very useful.

Godsworn Alexiel: Useful follower that prevents one-hit burst damage (ex. Giant Chimera, Lindworm), as long as an allied amulet exists. This effect is great in combination with Tenko’s Shrine, as it is permanent.

Rotation Budget Options

The following gold/legendary cards are an absolute necessity to the deck: Whitefang Temple, Tenko’s Shrine, Ceryneian Hind, and De La Fille, Gem Princess. Cards such as Summit Temple and Heavenly Knight are a luxury, providing alternate win conditions for the deck. Jeanne, Beacon of Salvation can be replaced for more copies of Themis’ Decree, although it is not a perfect replacement. Adding Sealed Tome, Seraphic Blade, and Bashful Al-mi’raj in place of some of these expensive cards is an option, as they provide draw power, removal, and extra abilities that triggers Tenko’s Shrine, respectively.

Rotation Deck Mulligans

Globe of the Starways: A solid first turn play that thins out the deck and ensures you have plays in the following turns.

Unicorn Knight: Helpful regardless of going 1st or 2nd as it provides Unicorn Spear, able to take out most followers that appear in the early-game.

Blackened Scripture: Keep when going second against follower-heavy classes.

Whitefang Temple: Recommended keep target if you also have Tenko’s Shrine in your hand.

Tenko’s Shrine: If possible, keep one copy of this amulet as it is the main win condition of the deck. However, it is better to put this back against aggressive decks in order to search for more early removal spells and followers.

Rotation General Gameplan and Tips/Tricks

  • In the first few turns, focus on setting up the draw engines of the deck while trying to get at least one follower on the board. Victory with the deck depends on how early Tenko’s Shrine can be set up, so it is vital to get the board set up for this.

  • Try to play Whitefang Temple on the third or fourth turn, to set up for a 5th turn Tenko’s Shrine. However, if the board is heavily in the opponent’s favor, wait for a later turn.

  • Once Tenko’s Shrine is set up, continue to focus on board control, so that the shrine can inflict damage directly to the leader.

  • There are going to be some match-ups were you are going to have to find out you cannot land tenko shrine on turn 5. In those games, try to play control as much as possible until you can find a safe place to play it. There are also going to be games where you cannot find a safe place to play it. In those cases, you will have to take a bit of risk.
