Deck Link

This is a combo deck that required a lot of actor on your hand to successfully pull off the trick to victory.
This deck is very generous in that you play phoenix roost in turn 5 and let the enemy do whatever they could (Bash your leader). Which if you survive the beating, is the time for retribution to your enemy.

The only win condition for this deck is play Phoenix Roost at 5 play point or turn 5. If you play phoenix roost at turn 6 or later most of the time it is suicide as most unlimited deck will have sufficient preparation to burst you down, unless you are sure that the opponent deck is very passive or their board is already full (5) and the fire power cant kill you the next turn.

Mulligan: keep Phoenix Roost, Uriel, Zooey, Dragon summoner.

The core card in this deck is:
-Dragon Summoner
-Dragon's Foresight
-Phoenix Roost

Dragon summoner and dragon's foresight is the key to consistently draw 2-3 Zooey into your hand:
-Dragon summoner, make sure that the only dragoncraft follower in the deck will be Zooey and Dragon summoner.
-dragon's foresight (use the enchant effect), ensure Zooey is the only follower card that have 5 hp if you want 100% draw chance.

Board clear: Conflagration or Bahamut
-Conflagration: 4 damage area nuke, effective in clearing small ward follower.
-Bahamut: Reliable nuke that destroy all follower.
Comparison: Bahamut will always cost one more play point after using 1 or 2 phoenix roost, however Bahamut have guaranteed board clear. By adding Bahamut into the deck you lost dragon foresight 100% to draw Zooey with enchant effect, on the bright side you can pull a board clear card (Bahamut) with dragon foresight instead of praying for Conflagration the next turn.

Zooey: only use the accelerate effect if your hand don't have Phoenix Roost.

General strategy:
Due to the suicide tendency of this deck, for the first 4 turn you will try to pull the core card and remove as many enemy follower so that you can safely land phoenix roost without enemy killing you the next turn.

Possible combo:
1) Phoenix Roost -> Phoenix Roost -> Zooey
2) Phoenix Roost -> Zooey -> Zooey
3) Phoenix Roost -> Bahamut (only if enemy deck is not storm and direct damage deck)

Favorable Match up:
Any slow deck: e.g:
-Artifact spamming portalcraft,
-Spellboost runecraft

weakness of this deck:
-ward follower
-damage reduce effect on leader
-Mutagenic Bolt (runecraft)
- too slow against face deck.

Have fun playing this deck.
