    Serena Profile up at shadowera.net

    Hi all, just letting you know if anyone's interested, I wrote a profile on Serena and put it up on Shadowera.net: http://shadowera.net/bob-rosss-sf-se...file/#more-609

    Any feedback is welcome. If I missed something important, or if you have a different take on something that I missed, feel free to tell me about it, and I can try to include it.

    Regarding cards, I tried to pick specific cards that were of note, either because they are very useful or common in Serena decks (like Anklebreaker or A Legend Rises), or because they seem relevant or were useful in the past but may not actually be as useful as a new player may think (Erika Shadowhunter and Lyra Blackrose). There are other cards that are somewhere in the middle between those extremes that I didn't bother with (like Agent Rex - possibly useful in the right deck/meta, but not really worth talking about as an important card for Serena, or for her to avoid).

    So yeah, let me know what you think, If you contribute in some meaningful way, I'll be sure to give you a shout out as well.

    Another card possibly worth mentioning is Night Prowler. With it and a pumped up Thoughtripper's Cutlass you will take 2 cards. Tough to pull off, but it can definitely be a game changer

    Wily Smugger is very strong and underestimated imo, works really well if you have a lot of cheap cards in your deck. In worst case, he can soak up a lot of damage that otherwise will be directed to your hero.

    Good to see serenade get some love. One point though you mention procured and restored being useful to grab cards like MC and Tidal Wave, but doesn't it only work on items? This is the main reason I haven't used it.

    Another noteworthy mention might be gravediggers cloak. Good additional draw and when played early you can be pretty much guaranteed that any card you get with it will be playable, probably removal of some sort.

    Giggle, have you made night prowler work with Serena? I mentioned it, but I talked about how hard it is to use well.

    Also thanks everyone for the feedback, I've made some minor changes to include it, and put your names at the bottom.

    Woops, my bad. I didn't know you mentioned it already. I just kinda skimmed through the article. So far I've pulled it off twice. Once against Vess which gave me two cards that really didn't help me much. But the second time was against Zaladar and it got me two shiny new Mind Controls! By the time you're able to pull it off you know your opponents is usually holding on to some pretty important cards.

    I'm trying to think if Serena has access to a card that will make your opponent discard from their hand that could be comboed with Cutlass. I'm not sure if it would work, but in theory if you pump up Cutlass and then cause your opponent to discard from their hand, then it should go into yours, right? The only card I could think of that came close was Scythe of Fate, but that says discard from your deck.
