Regional Promo 2017 – Job

Despite being a strong Hero in his time, Job (Priests) didn’t really catch on until Dust and Ashes was released with the Disciples set. Suddenly we had a Job and angel offense where Job was the star Hero. In those days Dust and Ashes was nearly impossible to target, meaning Job was nearly impossible to stop. With some strong enhancement backup a Job offense could really do a number on the small defenses that were often used in those days.

As the game has progressed defenses have gotten larger and stronger, Dust and Ashes has become vulnerable to Shipwreck (and a number of other cards) and the Job offense has faded into the pages of history…

Esau, the Hunter (**SPOILERS**)

After we had first gone over the first set list for Cloud of Witnesses, my brother and I were in the car headed somewhere I can’t remember, discussing the set and trying to think if there were any major thematic cards that weren’t currently in the list.  We realized that one Hero, Jacob, did not have any opposing evil characters in the set, and the most obvious antagonist for him would be Esau.  And so, we decided to try to take a crack at thinking of a good ability to propose an Esau for the set list.
