    Thoughts on a Serena Deck idea?

    I'm considering building a Serena deck, based around weapons (of course) and recycling on-summon abilities.

    Figured I'd run a few Retreat, 3-4 Vozitian Orders...
    ...then using Layarian Seductress and Priest of Light as my 3-drops, Lily Rosecult for my 4-drop, and support with other cards. Aside from that I'd use Aeon Stormcaller for my 6 drop, Raven Wildheart for the 5-drop, and Nightshade for my 2-drop.

    I came up with the idea after facing a few Wulven and Warrior decks. I was trying to come up with a way to get around Captured Prey and Crippling Blow, and while Sever Ties works well, I could just bounce the monsters back to my hand - and get use of their abilities again. Using Seductress allows me to maintain tempo, despite constantly removing things from my side of the field (although it's not like I have to activate Vozitian Orders just because it's there). She also helps to protect Raven from attacks until Aeon shows up - which should give Raven time to act as a second, slightly more powerful Anklebreaker. I'll also be able to constantly recycle Priest of Light, to continue adding pressure to my opponent by healing and removing Shadow Energy - which should help against anti-Ally abilities like Majiya, Boris, Nishaven, etc. Raven should also break those recurring chains, like Shadow Knight (don't kill it, it doesn't recycle). So I guess the following is the proposed deck (haven't built it yet):

    --------------------------------------------------

    Serena Thoughtripper

    x4 Nightshade
    x2 Champion of Irum
    x2 Layarian Seductress
    x3 Priest of Light
    x3 Lily Rosecult
    x2 Raven Wildheart
    x2 Aeon Stormcaller
    (18 Allies)

    x2 Retreat
    x3 Assassination
    x4 Stop Thief
    (9 Abiltiies)

    x4 Ill-Gotten Gains
    x4 Anklebreaker
    x2 Fan of Blades
    x3 Vozitian Orders
    (13 Items)

    40 cards + Hero

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Tell me what you think?

    Lovely deck. But I'd replace Retreat with Black Garb.

    Night Owl is also a great rouge ally.

    I used Retreat because it can target both my opponents and my own allies. I'll try to fit Black Garb and Night Owl in somewhere. They're both great.

    Think I should try to fit in Throwing Dagger? Since I don't have Black Garb at the moment, I can't use the FoB + Garb combo. Maybe using Dagger to start my opponent discarding sooner would help? If it's done right, this deck may be able to control most of the game - my opponent's hand and their field presence.

    Just for clarification, by "Throwing Dagger", do you mean Throwing Knife or Old Iron Dagger? Deck seems pretty solid though.
