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.

The strength of the Ruth offense is in the characters. It has a few strong territory class guys that give the battling Heroes good support. Once protected behind Threshing Floor those territory class characters can be fairly reliable.

The quick burst of speed provided by Elimelech gets the offense going. Strong Heroes like David, Boaz, Ruth and Amminadab were often the core of my rescuing team.

The gray defense is the least cohesive of the single brigade options in LoC because it’s split between Moabites and Syrians. But it’s still quite effective! The hand control elements as well as the banding provide it the strength it needs to keep up.
