    Nillyman Jericho deck

    Hello all

    (this is the old deck, post 5 is about my shattered fates deck)

    Although i'm not a real active player on this forum, i've been playing Jericho almost since the beginning of the game and it has had a lot of changes since then.
    I can still remember the days when the plague cards were one of the most feared cards in the game.

    Well all that is gone, and people are almost mocking my Jericho Deck as it isn't the most competitive one (anymore).

    Too bad... but i still have a lot of fun playing him, and the wins i have are most of the time very epic games, and that's what is all about, isn't it?

    Here's my deck which i've been tweeking for a bit of time now.

    Hero

    Jericho Spellbane

    Allies:

    2X Fleet-footed Messenger
    2X Jasmine Rosecult
    2X Aldon the Brave
    2X Elizabeth Winterborn
    2X Artful Squire
    1X Sandworm
    2X Knight of the Golden Dawn
    1X Aeon Stormcaller

    -> 14 allies

    Attachments

    2X Treasured Heirloom
    2X Sacred Fire Walker
    1X A Legend Rises
    2X Lingering Essence
    2X Divine Connection

    ->9 Attachments

    Abilities

    2X Bad Santa
    4X Tidal Wave
    4X Focused Prayer
    3X Healing Touch
    2X Book of Curses
    2X Banish
    2X Forgiveness
    1X Resurrection

    Weapons/Armor

    4X Wizents Staff
    2X Celestial Armor

    51 card deck..


    I sometimes put a few other cards in it but this is more or less the base with what i play...
    It's slow, i know and against rusher i'll need my book of curses.
    But with the attachments i can sometimes disrupts a well played rush while i'm searching for a tidal wave.

    The attachments do also have a double role. I can choose to sacrifice and heal (preferably with a treasured heirloom) and get an infinite loop of cards and healing.
    I really like the forgiveness card as i find myself more often than not lacking enough SE (with the wizents staff, celestial armor) and because of the ability to sac a card and return it in play later on in the game.

    The move that turns around the game often is the combo celestial armor/tidal wave. The opportunity to have that big ally still on the board after a tidal wave is usually a shock and announces a hard time for a lot of opponents.


    I do have a hard time against most Gravebone, Zaladar, and Majiya well actually most rusher mages (although with a bit of luck it sometimes works out)

    Strategy:

    Before T4 i try to cast book of curses, lingering essence, divine connection, Bad Santa
    At T4: i usually cast a card generator
    T5: most of the time it'll be tidal wave time :-)


    I know the deck is still bloated but with so much card drawing power i've aleady found myself in long games where i really needed it.


    Very curious about feedback!

    Too many cards....too few copies of key cards.

    Focus on what you really need/want to achieve and max those cards out.

    Example, Book of Curses. If you want it before t4 you need to run 4x.

    Playing Jericho without Embers and Zails seems pointless to me, at the current state of the game...

    Strategy

    I'm a Jericho fan but he's been softened up so much. I'm glad to see someone working a priest deck. Thanks!

    i actually sacrifice forgiveness (mostly first time), when i get another one normally i immediatly can cast 2 so i get a small SE boost.

    the rest is depending on the opponent.
    i also removed 2 Aldmor accelerators as was getting too often...
