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.

Heroes like Zerubbabel, Ezra Favored by God and Jeshua, the Restorer are powerhouses that help ensure your success. Although the build I’ve used in this deck has a lot of good things going for it, the offense probably isn’t the optimal build for postexilics. It was built in order to fully test the 4 LoC Feasts and their viability.

Goliath and Philistine Garrison are strong blockers on their own, but when combined with things like Philistine Commanders, Household Idols and Goliath’s Armor they become even tougher to deal with.
