    I love the history you wrote thanks for that ^^

    Good deck in general. thanks FDL. . Spirit shuriken is great card. Retreat > asssination > black garb [isnt so good vs amber or RD badu both a bad mu for you] and perhaps a mix of t2 allies 2x night shade 2x layarian diplomat.

    Really, why is that? The original deck was much more fragile (but then again, everybody is more robust now).

    Shriek of Vengeance was pretty popular back then. Shriek on IGG, Lily to get it back set them back a fair bit.

    Haha, I think that was a Test Server tournament if I recall correctly. Those were fun times.

The steal from cutlass is part of that, but so are those little ways to draw a card here and there. One piece of tech doesn't make Serena fall apart like it used to. Similarly, getting an opponent down to an empty hand no longer guarantees a win. If you're into nostalgia, you can check out some of my older youtube videos from two years ago playing Serena in the WCs. Maybe I'll track down the decklist and repost it here...that one actually had very little draw, and was just a game of tight margins and good top-decking.
    Empty hands are indeed much rare today.

    DoU was certainly much less powerful than AB. Garg and Worm were pretty popular too (but Black Garb helped). The other options were Old Iron Dagger and Golden Katar...

    Btw 4 igg 2 backstab and 3 hit list are bit to much for Serena considering u always can count on some cards stolen by Cutlass..
    I would also cut one black garb..
    All this in purpose adding one more viska, shuriken and sorcerer...
    Especially i like the idea of having Aeon here..
    Cheers
    The draw might be a tad high, but everybody else draws so much. Just stripping cards from their hand isn't enough to overwhlem them. Having 1 extra answer over one Hit List could be a thing.

    T2 allies are bad with Night Owl and Sabreen though. Amber is a decent matchup, but yeah, RD Baduruu can be unwinnable if they chain HBM and Cobraskin.

    I could easily play Sorcerer over Lily. That's a good idea.

    Spirit Shuriken and Retreat are for other builds I think.

    It's crazy that it's been this long. I had fun battling you guys (even if some of you played so much Millstalker!).

    Holy crap FDL, that's great. Serena was my first and most played hero!
    I was so dumb then my fav weapon was Throwing Knife!
    Not much smarter now but getting AB into the mix saved me.

    I do think she's much more competitive now and twice the pain in the butt she was w Cutlass and more beneficial allies.

    Great write up man!

    I've recently played a little more SE recently and had some good success with an old fates Serena. Competitive in ladders but probably not in organized situations. It seems that the lands don't really help her much, perhaps sabeen. But hand destruction can still be very problematic despite all the new draw avenues.

    Any chance nightprowler makes a come back?
