Yeah, that one. It received errata giving it an attack bonus as well.

Call Verdatha? What? You probably put that in when you had a different item setup. How about a Ring of Piercing? Fiendish Plate? Exhaustion? Twist the Blade? Precision?

Edit: Also, how are you putting Tybast in the discard? He just shores up the front rank as someone they don't want to target? And how is this running? I never even built anything similar, just had the stupid idea.

The deck actually does surprisingly well with ghed as the warlord because she adds survivability to the deck. Between her built in check, the potion of blurring check, the helm of terror check, and the fact that she's planar she can be a major pain in the ass to deal with! Oh and did I mention planar plus cardinal daris is a real pain to deal with!? Tybast were testing out to help make the multiple checks more of a threat. We never play him. He's always just a card that is discarded at the end of turn. As far as call verdatha is concerned the deck really just needs x amount of movement so it helps supply the needed movement cards. We're open to suggestion. Tried ring of piercing and it sucks when you draw it early. It's just a dead card...

Makes sense on the ring. What about Griffon of Misear instead in case your get pushed back or the rank in front of you explodes? I know it's a minuscule portion of the meta, but Etra does exist and Selai might see occasional play. The Nokthkruger makes total sense, although it adds another Order to the chain. If Tybast falls out of fashion, you could try stuff like Evon Myerdeth, Toren Yscar, and Ghed Symion.

Consort's Crown to discard Tybast?

I think you could set your goals a little higher. I'm glad someone actually built this, though. It is really hilarious. I'm also glad you like Helm of Terror. It's one of my favorite items!

Woody, as you have already discovered for yourself ghed is not a stormwraith.

We have found out through play testing that 3x gahid's stand is probably too much considering you don't really want to see it till turn turn 3 anyway. 2 gahid's stand alongside 2 panthera should be enough to accomplish what the deck is trying to do.

3 ghed carel
2 acolyte dorra
1 ghed mnettaor

3 tybast
3 war wagon
3 illar rowan
3 sir euain
2 cardinal daris
2 temple of lore
1 toren yscar
1 squire andreas
1 isadran warrior

3 call verdatha
3 shore up
2 gahid's stand

3 war mace
2 helm of terror
2 panthera
2 bracers of ogre power
2 gloves of mercy
1 kringle's sleigh
1 nokhtkruger
1 griffon of misear

3 the shattered spire

you are an evil Planar Paladin
MUST HAVE SCALES OF THE STORM

also Panthera with 2x Stand might be the right mix

for a "different" version of the idea, consider Valhalla Abyssbane with Spirit's Bonds, no pesky second rank to get shot apart
(and can wear Signon's Armor)

(and curiously, I realize that a Dancing Scimitar or Raylor Magicbane is an auto win)

The deck had scales in it for such a long time but we realized that we didn't need it between the helm of terror, the built in check, potion of blurring checks, and daris cancellations. The scales turned out to be unneeded surprisingly.

Up your gloves and bracers. More Panthera, less Nodwick? Tybast looking pretty weak.

The thing about this deck is you are kind of hard pressed to play any characters besides the ones that come into play in any rank because there's a good chance they wont get to come into play due to it causing an illegal rank. Because of that you are short on characters that can make the list. Tybast is one that can however because he never actually sees play. I don't really look at him as a character tbh. He is basically a card that says while it is in my discard pile my opponent has -2 skill. Between the 3 checks that ghed makes the opponent do I feel like he is fine. I need another outlet to discard him though. 1x toren isn't enough I don't believe. Maybe I'm wrong... :shrug:
