So guys, here is a very standardized Danian deck, pretty symmetrical especially our front-line of compost warriors. Makanaz guarding left and right with an aggressive threat of leaping over and taking them down especially with Pouril Forest rendering Defender useless. Of course, if you decided to go with Varanohs and Song of Futuresight, Pouril Forest and taking out their support can be quite easy. Our good friend Ivelaan is also in the middle kinda as a last line of defense before Mheins have to step in.
Once our frontal wall has been breached, it's time to launch into offensive attacks with Mhein, with attacks like Supercooled Rain and Terrantula Tackle, your opponent will be stripped of both mugic counters and battlegear. Their ability also kicks in allowing them to tap into additional strength for extra power.
The Queen, herself if the treasure trove, the mother-load, our one and only muge! Her abilities are plenty to keep her alive and although she begins with 2 counters, I suspect she'll have enough to cover any mugic you require in the near future...
The game sets up with Ivelaan sacrificing his Mipedian Balladeer's Flute and casting Ode of Obscurity to infect 3 Creatures with Illexia defending with her own denial mugic. With 3 Creatures infected (Preferably front-row), Illexia can gather more counters and we can cast Strain of Infection if and when wished. This deck prefers to be uninterrupted by petty annoyances and so we have included a lot of denial mugic, supercooled rain and even Dranakis Threshold to stop them from playing their annoying little tricks. This makes the game similar to Apprentice except the way the Danians are set-up, it begins to be pretty intimidating...
Finally, the Revival Variation, while I was building this deck, I looked over Talisman of the Mandiblor and gave me an idea for a Revival Variation which generally involved sacrificing Mhein, to bring back Mhein again (assuming 1 Mhein is coded). Then cycling Bodal's Arsenal thru attacks like Flashkick (Not included in build) and mugic like Song of Futuresight and bring back Talisman of Mandiblor to revive AGAIN! Of course, sacrificing Mhein takes place just as he is about to be coded.
Well, Thanks for checkin it out!
