Deck Author Interview
About Deck

This deck is really good against Face and Aggro type decks. It has an even match-up against PDK Dragoncraft because of Themis's Decree . Heavenly Aegis improves its match-up against Control decks as well.

Deck Point

Searching Tenko with Aether of the White Wing's effect is very powerful. You can check out the video below, but I believe that no other deck can compete against this deck in terms of what it can do in one turn.

Key Cards

By using this card turn one, you improve your chances of drawing Beastcall Aria on subsequent turns. Even if you don't pull Beastcall, pulling Globe or Tribunal of Good an Evil will improve your late game. This is why I picked this card over Sacred Plea.

When you play this card at 6~9 PP, you are guaranteed to search Tenko. At 10 PP, you can play Heavenly Aegis. This deck only has 1 Heavenly Aegis, but having this card makes it seems like you have 4 of them. Because of this, you are less likely to brick late game.

This card is surprisingly useful because it performs very well against 1 cost Face Swordcraft followers. Since it can attack twice, it has good synergy with Tenko.

How to Play

Ideal Play:

Ideally you want to play Beastcall Aria by turn 2 or 3. Play Elana's Prayer before Beastcall Aria leaves the field.  Then play Tenko or buff Tenko by playing Aether of the White Wing, then take over the board and win the game.

Against Aggro Decks:

Against Aggro or Face, the deck has lot of Heals + Princess Snow White. Focus on clearing the field and wait for your opponent to run out of resources.

Against PDK Dragon:

Against PDK Dragon, it is okay to lose board control in the early game. Try to make counter plays with cards like Elana's Prayer and Beastcall Aria. If your opponent is playing hyper aggressive, switch the plan and wait until you can play Heavenly Aegis.

Lastly, this can be said for any opponent, but make sure to keep space on your side of field.

Mulligan

Against Sword and Blood:

Against Aggro decks like Sword or Blood, always search for Princess Snow White. You can also search for Healing Angel or Blackened Scripture.

Decks that are not Aggro:

If you know you aren't playing against Aggro, you can search for Elana's Prayer and Beastcall Aria.

Against Dragoncraft:

Against Dragoncraft, keep Blackened Scripture and search for Elana's Prayer and Beastcall Aria.

Against Shadowcraft:

There has been a lot of Shadowcraft decks with Lord Atomy. Prioritize Tribunal of Good and Evil (or Globe of the Starways) and keep Blackened Scripture.
