    My Nishaven Deck Needs Tweaking

    I'm still pretty new to Shadow Era, but I've already begun customizing my deck. I use a Nishaven deck, and I'd like some feedback and suggestions on ways to improve it and my strategy.

    Here's what I use right now.

    Nishaven x 1
    Puwen Bloodhelm x 4
    Aeon Stormcaller x 2
    Fireball x 4
    Poison Gas X 2
    Lightning Strike x 2
    Engulfing Flames x 2
    Research x 2
    Portal x 1
    Supernova x 2
    Arcane Bolt x 2
    Retreat! x 2
    Special Delivery x 2
    Rain Delay x 4
    Voice of Winter x 4

    As for my strategy, this is my attempt to create an adaptable direct damage deck. Most of the time, I simply use my allies as resources to use my spells. I use Nishaven's ability, Arcane Bolt, Rain Delay, Retreat!, and Voice of Winter for crowd control while I use a combination of Engulfing Flames and Poison Gas for constant damage. The other direct damage cards are self-explanatory.

    In the event my opponent has a way of destroying items (Ter Adun, for example), I will use my allies and direct damage cards to negate the anti-item abilities. I use my weapons as resources so I can keep allies and the spells coming.

    My deck works wonderfully against the AIs, but I have issues with Challenge matches. I'd appreciate any and all help you can give me.

    I like those ideas. Special Delivery costs too much for what it does, and I was going to phase them out eventually. Snow Sapphire is on my list, too. Portal was me just messing around. I can't say as I've even used it yet, and it's been in my deck for two days maybe.

    Although rain delay is nice, it never ends at an opportune time for me, so I replaced it with Freeze and Retreat. if you have 3 or 4 of each they pop up often enough to make for good crowd control long enough for Nish to use his ability. It also stalls the opponent out long enough to get VoW down. I still lose more than I win but I'm new at TCGs.

    just my $.02

    There is a good advice right there. I would further boost early game potential with some Blakes, maybe ditch one or two rain delays and max your retreat cards - they are insanely good. Maybe consider a few bad santa cards so that you can speed up your game when you feel like it. Mage deck lives out of card draw, imo.
