    Going first or second can heavily influence your resourcing so I will just post a brief strategy about each card. The deck is about resource destruction so almost never resource Here Be Monsters or Cobraskin Wraps. Without fatties, rapid damage, or healing in the deck you will probably get overwhelmed come T6 anyway if you think you need to resource these early.

    Allies are the most resourced cards. Believe it or not you can actually win through ability damage alone, however slowly, depending on your draw and match up if you have to.

    Shriek of Vengeance is a great combo card with Here Be Monsters and must be kept Vs Heroes with typical draw engines such as Priests, Mage, Rogues, and the Bazaar lovers Wulven and Elementals. The first one or two can typically be resourced Vs Warriors.

    Evil Ascendant is most crucial to survive. When able tank weenie damage and save your SE for the really painful fatties (along with Poison Arrow). If they get uncontested draw early only use SE when hitting two allies if possible. If you are able to starve them enough you can resource more Poison Arrows and Evil Ascendants (if you are keeping a spare Vs a hero with common item destruction such as Rogues)

    Shadow Font is another card that can be resourced if you are able to ping weenies and conserve SE

    Sever Ties is most essential for removing Blood Frenzy. Without it BF can mean auto-lose.

    Spelleater Bands can be necessary to finish off a mage, or Shadow hero relying on Death Mage Thaddeus or Plasma Behemoths (typically Moonstalker).

    Win rate levels out at around the 250 rank.
