    Flynn's Control Ghost Zhanna

    Zhanna - Ghost Control

    Hero:
    Zhanna Mist

    Allies: (16)
    3x Jasmine
    2x Raven
    3x Armored Sandworm
    2x Tainted Oracle
    3x Earthen Protector
    3x Aeon

    Abilities: (16)
    2x Healing Touch
    4x Tidal Wave
    3x Focused Prayer
    3x Book of Curses
    4x Retreat

    Weapons and Armour: (9)
    2x The King's Pride
    4x Wizent's Staff
    3x Ghostmaker

    Total: 42


    Turn Strategy

    T1 - Nothing
    T2 - Nothing (better to burn Retreat)
    T3 - Jasmine if empty board, BoC otherwise
    T4 - WS/TO (draw only when needed - first 4/5 turns usually)
    T5 - Heavy Enemies: Wave/Sandworm - Medium Enemies: Sandworm/Raven - Light/No Enemies: Raven/Earthen Protector (EP only if you know it won't die)
    T6 - Aeon
    T7 - Ghostmaker/EP


    Deck Strategy

    Clear/control board with Wave, BoC, Retreat, Sandworm then play Aeon and EP to build your core. Use Ghostmaker, Retreat, and FP to make this happen. Maintain board with Raven, Jasmine, King's Pride. Use shadow energy to heal Zhanna. Stack 7/8 resources as fast as possible, 11 if struggling.


    Key Combos

    1. Heavy Control
    Resources: 6-10
    T(n) - Aeon (he dies)
    T(n+1) - Ghostmaker (don't attack)
    T(n+2) - Earthen Protector, Revive Aeon (EP dies)
    T(n+3) - Any Ally, Revive EP

    Resources: 11+
    T(n) - Aeon (he dies)
    T(n+1) - Ghostmaker + Earthen Protector, Revive Aeon (EP dies)
    T(n+2) - Any Ally, Revive EP

    2. Tidal Control
    T(8/10+) Tidal Wave + Jasmine/Sandworm

    3. Ghost Healer
    T(6+) Ghostmaker, revive ghost, heal ghost with ability or HT

    4. Retreat Heal
    T(5+) Retreat friendly ally + replay ally

    5. Ghost Draw
    T(6+) Ghostmaker, revive Tainted Oracle


    Updates

    -2 Good Ascendant
    +2 Tainted Oracle

    After reading feedback and playing some test matches I've updated this deck. Good Ascendant end up being less useful because it's very hard for the opponent to damage allies once they are protected by Aeon and Aeon himself is protected by the Earthen Protector making ally healing not needed. In the situations where you don't draw Wizent's Staff Tainted Oracle does become very useful. Also, in the event of a board wipe, having a Tainted Oracle on field becomes a good safety net.

    Umm, I think this may be a little bit too slow, I do see some fun combos in is, but maybe since early game you will probably be taking lots o damage. This could work though. Fun, I will try ths eventually.

    You're missing the core card of the GM Zhanna strategy..... Tainted Oracle.

    I also feel it's a bit too slow to get rolling, considering the resource curve of your allies.

    Normally I'd agree and say the deck is too slow to be strong. This build honestly doesn't need more draw (Tainted Oracle) than it has because it plays many hard-to-kill fatties and maintains control with little upkeep. The deck's heavy end-game card build works because it utilizes Book of Curses to soften an early ally rush and then Tidal Wave to clear the board before playing heavy allies. Ghostmaker allows the deck to play multiple heavy allies at once in mid-game making the deck regain control fairly easily.

    Try it, this deck works and is a ton of fun.

    What happens when you don't draw a Wizent's? To play heavy fatties in late game you need a lot of resources, and to do that you need really strong draw. Imo 4 draw cards is never enough. Plus once you replace your Wizent's with a GM, your draw stops.

    I daydream about cards too.

    Wouldn't it be more fun to remove good ascendent and add tainted oracle?
