Deck Overview

Pros and Cons:
The inspiration behind this Budget deck is that it can be easily converted into a true Storm Haven deck with a few tweaks here and there. The pros of this deck are the board clear potential in almost a quarter of the cards in the deck. The objective of this deck is to basically control the tempo of the game by keeping your opponent's board empty and attacking with your stronger amulet-summoned minions later on. This deck is weaker to decks such as Lion Havencraft, Aggro bloodcraft, and Anne(Mysteria) Runecraft, due to them not requiring as much board presence earlygame, or at all.

Mulligans:
You want to keep a pinion prayer or a sacred plea in your starting hand if possible. Also, the hallowed Dogma is a must have over any other card, seeing as your deck focuses so much on amulet magic. It is good to only keep one of each of these in your starting hand, and perhaps a blackened scripture as well, for the early board clear on their early drops.

Matchups:
Against Runecraft, this deck is somewhat weaker, seeing as the gimmick in Runecraft is to cast powerful spells and summon great monsters. However, it does do well against Dirt Rune and Daria Runecraft, because of the Themis' Purge, Themis' Decree, and your two Soul Collectors. This deck is also somewhat nerfed against Forestcraft decks that contain a lot of cheap minions, as they will generally be able to outplay your board, regardless of how many times you clear it. The deck mostly focuses on going for "face" damage early and fast. It is a storm deck at it's core, and you must play aggro in order to fully utilize it. Garuda is good for decreasing your March Hare's Teatime for a whole wombo combo of 6 "face" damage every time through Garuda(3) plus evolved minion(3) summoned by the Teatime.
