After a couple of fun rotation games on livestream last week, we’re back in action with weekly videos and this week, we’re checking out an offense that lurked around somewhat in Classic (mainly by Josh P. and Shon S. in recent years), but I think we’ll see even more in the rotation meta: Priests.
This week’s video is the caboose of the top tier “series” on Redemption with Jayden, which was sort of interrupted by some (I guess top tier) combo decks. While this deck may not necessarily be considered top tier by everyone in the current meta, I do think it’s fairly good, pretty fun, and certainly would have made the list a year ago.
Last week we saw some Daniel Eyes combo action so of course we have to follow it up with the other combo that everyone’s been talking about lately which is the unexpected interaction with Love at First Sight (LaFS) and negating draw abilities.
This week’s video features a deck that I’ve been wanting to share with y’all for awhile, but Lackey doesn’t lend itself very well to this particular deck and I would’ve much rather debuted the deck at Nationals than at an online tournament or something smaller like that. But, alas, someone else discovered it and now the world knows so here we are.
This week is a continuation of the “top tier” series, but it’s probably not a deck that too many people expected to see in this series. I’m sure that this exact build isn’t the best version of the deck at this point (it’s 52 cards for starters), but the strategy has been around for awhile and I definitely think there’s still some viability in it, maybe enough for *silver* medal? Cuz yeah, we havin’ us an angel party.
In this week’s video I continue the mini-series of playing top tier decks with a Throne variant that utilizes the musicians and music-related cards that are already included in most Throne decks.
The May online tournament was pretty well attended for an online tournament and I’m excited to get to share the gameplay with y’all. I ran my Postexilic deck with a few revisions, all of which became relevant at some point during the tournament so I’m pretty happy with that.
This week on Redemption with Jayden we’re taking a break from gameplay to take a look at what the game is going to look like in the future as we anticipate the release of Gospel of Christ later this year! In this video I’ll talk a bit about the National Tournament coming up in August and some of the Promos for it that we’ve seen so far, I’ll have a brief note about box openings on my channel, and then I’ll go over each of the GoC spoiler snippets that we’ve seen thus far and speculate a bit on each of them. Unfortunately I don’t have any new spoilers for you at this point past what has been shared with the public yet, but maybe I’ll be able to sweet talk my way into that at some point…
This week’s video features a deck built by Justin Alstad that he took first with in one of the spring 2020 online tournaments: Speed Job. The goal is to get Job out as quickly as possible and then use his exchange ability right away to fetch and recur Job’s Faith every turn to wipe out your opponent’s defense.
For the April online tournament I decided to bring back a deck I played a number of years ago that I apparently haven’t touched since 2018: disciples and demons.
This week on Redemption with Jayden we’re doing something of an introduction to Type 2 since I really like it and think you should 2. Heh.
This week on Redemption with Jayden we’re heading back into Type 2 world with a deck that’s all about hitting the reset button. That’s right, in true April Fool’s fashion, we’re playing an A New Beginning deck.
The February 2021 online tournament is over which means we’ve got some gameplay for y’all. This time around we had 8 players in T1-2P so we played three rounds and, of course, had a lot of fun.
There’s a new Contender Deck out there for y’all and, let me tell ya, it’s a good one. After all the hype and love I’ve shown for the Postexilic offense during the last few months, I’ve finally finished a Contender version of the deck for Your Turn Games and it’s now available for purchase.
This week on Redemption with Jayden we take a Priests/Judean Royalty deck out against Chad Frantz and his post-ignore change Zebulun build. This deck utilizes most of the best cards that require meek Lost Soul unity to get some payoffs that hopefully outweigh the benefits of Lost Soul abilities.
The second livestream on Redemption with Jayden was last week and it was certainly a lot of fun. If you weren’t able to join us, that’s alright, the video is still available via the link below and now you’ll have some additional content that wasn’t available at the time because, as you can see below, our decklists and personal summaries for the decks, game, and the draft are now available!
The last online tournament of 2020 is wrapped up and was a lot of fun. After the rescheduling, we were still able to get up to 8 players in T1-2P and 2 players in LoC Only. This time around I wanted to try something new and unsuspected, so I brought back an older strategy to see if it had some potential in the current meta: Hand Control.
In this week’s video I try out a brand new Corinth deck where the main strategy is to use Titus Justus to protect my Corinth Heroes from most Evil Characters by decreasing their toughness. To make sure my Evil Characters stay safe though, I paired the offense with a standalone-type defense with beefy characters like King of Tyrus, Red Dragon, and Emperor Nero.
Merry Christmas Eve! This week’s video is a Lineage of Christ Super Pack unboxing. It was fun to try out since I usually just play games and discuss decks on my channel, so maybe I’ll do it more often as my wallet allows… Hope y’all enjoy and I’m certainly open to suggestions if there’s anything you guys wanna see!
Merry Christmas! With Christmas being just a week away from the release of this video, I decided to do a couple Christmas-themed videos, the first of which being a red/pale green and green/crimson matchup with Greg Miller (Bobbert).
This week’s Redemption with Jayden video features a double-header between the Ruth/Moabites Contender Deck from Your Turn Games piloted by John Hendrix and the brand new Red/Black Contender Deck.
This weeks Redemption with Jayden video features a lightning fast Postexilic deck piloted by Jayden that won a recent online tournament. Check out the first game and write up here.
This week’s Redemption with Jayden video features a deck that triples up on Legion of Angels and swings in with them while they’re protected from harm by Mary, Faithful Servant.
