    4x Jasmine Rosecult
    2x Kristoffer Wyld
    3x Puwen Bloodhelm
    3x Birgitte Skullborn
    3x Aldon the Brave
    4x Tainted Oracle

    Smite and Tidal Wave seem not the good idea to have it all, select one of this to build your playing style. +1 destroy arms and - 1 The king's pride...

    If you're afraid of losing the weapon or amor, then try to add Lily to help you return its.

    Interesting deck. few questions:

    Why Zhanna over Jericho? Do you have any trouble beating Warriors or DC when using Zhanna rather than jeri?

    Why not 4 destroy arms, that card is amazing!

    Why use only 2 kris with three skulls? Wouldn't picking one over the other make the deck a bit more reliable in how it will behave? Looking at this deck, it seems like the most compelling reason to use kris over skull is to ping a Dagger of Unmaking.

    3 KP... i suppose i'm 50/50 on that one. Seems really good for you, but maybe 2 would be enough. Do you think your deck would fair the same with two?

    Edit: This is what i was sorta thinking. Maybe remove a retreat for a extra KP or Puwen or smite

    1x Zhanna Mist

    4x Jasmine Rosecult
    3x Puwen Bloodhelm
    4x Birgitte Skullborn
    3x Aldon the Brave
    4x Tainted Oracle

    4x Tidal Wave
    4x Destroy Arms
    3x Smite
    4x Retreat

    2x The King's Pride
    4x Wizent's Staff

    I've played Zhanna since 1.23. She's by far my favorite hero and I stick with her through thick and thin. Granted I've dabbled in other heroes (LOGAN SMAAAAASH!!!) but I'm always drawn back to Zhanna.
    I have trouble with Warriors, but not with Darkclaw.

    Why not 4 destroy arms, that card is amazing!
    I play casually so if my rating stays in the low 200's I'm happy

    I used to run 4 of each, but then I had to make room for 3 smites. Being only 1cc allies, I figured I wouldn't miss having a ton of them.

    3 KP... i suppose i'm 50/50 on that one. Seems really good for you, but maybe 2 would be enough. Do you think your deck would fair the same with two?
    I usually sac the first KP I get, if it's before I reach 7 resources. And versus Darkclaw the extra armor helps.

    The current version of SE when I made the deck, not the version of the deck lol.

    Out of interest - why the smites? I see them used so rarely now a days. Not that I use either but I imagine Ice Storm would be more useful than smite?

    As opposed to Retreat!, sometimes I use Smite because I actually need help removing an ally rather than bouncing. Versus Elementalis this is a help. Versus Darkclaw it provides some nice finisher damage (3 smites in one turn can be unpredictable). Otherwise it's just a nice DD card. It's not Fireball, but it's close enough to work for me.
    I don't use Ice Storm because it's less effective versus Gargoyle, and that card's a pain to deal with.

    Fair enough!

    I have to say I do like unpredictability in a deck - sometimes it is your only chance!

    I did work on a "Holy Nuker" deck which was sadly just a weak mage
