I'm username Kohen Gadol on Shadow Era. I've been playing for about three years, and this is the first time I have been invited to join a guild. I play only priests, and have been running a Threbin deck since the time SF was introduced. I appreciate the positive nature of the description I read of the guild, and I am definitely open to constructive criticism and competition.
My current Threbin deck:
Draw, etc: 4 Scriptures of the Righteous 4 Bad Santa 4 Forgiveness 3 Glass Chalice of knowing 2 Bazaar
The deck began as a solo deck. I want to be able to do 15-20 damage via direct damage and weapons as I build toward ten resources, which sets me up for mournblade/wave against a creature heavy deck.
The Knights and Justicars are in the deck much more for their abilities than as real weapons themselves. In fact, I intend that neither will survive past the turn I cast them, but the Knights help me build resources more quickly (and help against Badaru's HBM and CW) while the Justicars are played on a turn when I can use my ability to maximize damage.
The size of the deck is a concession to Praxis. Nearly a third of the deck is one manner or another of draw, to mitigate the negative effect of a larger deck, but having fewer copies is problematic when my cards are being siphoned three at a time. All the draw makes playing Serena significantly easier, as well.
The Prismatic is as much about Mage (and Zaladar) protection as it is the anti-Praxis function. I imagined that the Prismatic was just a novelty card, but I find it highly effective for limiting direct damage -- and it's remarkable how many times the opponent ignores the effect to their detriment.
The shields are excellent for keeping me alive as I lure creatures out to set up the mournblade/wave. I'm not in love with the Startleshell - I have used Book of Curses as well - but I need something to combat early rush.
The forgiveness allows me to bury mournblade, HS, and Prismatic early on, and the SE gain fuels my ability to use glass chalice to get the cards I need in the moment.
I'll wait and respond more to individual questions or suggestions. I've had success, but it ain't perfect. I've been stuck around 300 for a while. I welcome your input, and I'd love to play against you at some point. I will have less availability to play this weekend, but next week I should be fully engaged.
PiercingSerenity: Not sure how often the activity checks are to determine if this is relevant to me, but I have been inactive for a long time. Just started becoming a bit more active in the last couple of days
