Post Deckbuilding - Father Jourdain
So, of the two clerics that tied in my "next deck" poll, I am going to try out Jourdain and see what I can make of him. AS I have noticed though, there hasn't been much Temple Traffic lately, so I thought I would share my thought process / design this deck by crowdsourcing.

Even with my reputation for off the wall jank, I don't see anything just leaping off the page with Papa J. not a problem, I can work with that.

Character base:
I am thinking beefy level 4 Cav - The Sable Knight, Temur, Corinne Drac, Okull the defiant, and Mariah Blackthorne (3HP or other defensive measures) to really stretch the utility of the Planar trait.

I have thought about Ygrassine to give my Stormwraith's magic resistance, but if I see a wizard on the other side of the table, I simply do not turn the Planar mode on, and let the AC and HP be my defense.

Actions and Items are going to be a mix of healing, readying, and movement.

I did entertain the notion of using Papa J's debuff to soften up a target for a big Withering Gaze / Merciless Strike combo, but it feels unreliable at best.

now, off to check out what Papa J decklists people have posted.... (maybe I should have done that first)

Ygrassine is solid anyway, Rich. She's a Cantor for Lift Up Your Voices, which can be awesome. Also, I know he has 3 HP, but Temur is otherwise horrible. Not sure who I'd replace him with to keep the 3 HP love going on, but he's pretty lame.

I hadn't rightfully processed the action / item side yet - not sure if I was going to worry about Lift.

I've been mentally toying with an idea to use Fervor with Deverenians (since they actually have Cantors) - best version would probably be a Dhamir il Maliq deck, deploying the Fervor with Viper Whip)

Maybe Count Vyacheslav if you plan on using weapons and steeds.

Temur might not be optimal for this deck, but I don't see how he is a horrible card. Personally, I would run The Beast Knight or Ghed Romus in that slot.

You could just make it the typical Cleric Cavalry deck, with you punch coming from 3x Backbiter and 2-3x Dragon Buckler.

But that's so...vanilla! What 'bout a level 3 focus (slightly faster) with the back ranks used for additional cleric support/buffs? Punch (aka Multiwounding) can come from actions like Blessings of Granite and Show of Strength.

Theorycraft:

Genecourt x2, Shieldman x1
Caleb, Alexa
Papa J

Knight of Falun x3
Beast Knight x3
Nisroch x3 (teh cheats)
Mistress Edrea x3
Ancestral Wraiths x2
Ghed Lionel x1
Cardinal Scelus x1
Dhalia Genecourt x1
Mama D x1
Batman x1

Stormwolf x1
Ring of the Savant x1
Fountain of Tears x1
Griffon x3

Embolden x3
Cauterize x3
Soothing Waters x3
Final Blessing x3
Blessings of Granite x3
Minor Miracle x2
Show of Strength x2
