An offense that focuses on using all meek Heroes might be the strongest offense in LoC. It certainly provides the most depth and variety of any LoC offense since you can build a meek offense around any of the 4 main brigades or blend Heroes from all the eras to use the “best of the best”.
The very first LoC play test deck I built was kings of Judah. I was really excited by the prospect of meek Lost Souls actually being viable. This started as a type 1 deck but since most of the content was LoC it easily converted to a LoC constructed deck.
The third Lineage of Christ constructed deck I’m sharing with you was easily one of my favorites. Ever since the I/J starter deck I’ve enjoyed the small Ruth theme. For years now I looked forward to this set and our opportunity to expand the depth of the good Ruth cards.
For this second installment of Lineage of Christ constructed we’re going to take a look at the all new postexilic theme paired with a defense that packs a lot of raw power – Philistines.
One of the strengths of postexilic Heroes is the “toolbox” of negates they have verses all evil brigades except orange. No matter what color of defense you’re facing you can find a postexilic Hero that will negate humans of that brigade – Zadok, Eliakim, Shealtiel, Jacob, Matthan and Azor.
Lineage of Christ constructed was a fun format to test. It was an accessible way to test interactions within the set itself since we wanted things to function well for booster draft. Obviously drafting isn’t nearly as easy to do but we did several tests drafts as well.
The Genesis Heroes have the most depth of any of the good themes in LoC. It’s possible to build 3 entirely different offenses with Genesis Heroes without using any duplicates!
