So I think the better route is to be fast either going with Xeanara, Xianthia, Ursala, Jack, Roland/Rolando, Elissa, etc. and lots of readying and buffing, or maybe a weenie list could be a thing. I haven't checked the spoiler since I'm posting from my phone. Weenie would depend on what low level Lycans you have access to, but wouldn't it be a mostly worse version of Adarymy. Like Adarymy if she couldn't play all the good level 1's but had access to Mass Blessing?

I'm going weenie partly because Adarymy is banned in the format, and partly because why not. Though, I suppose it *could* be a Lady of Mercy weenie deck, as her ability does a little more in terms of increasing the "ooomph" of the weenie strikes, and she can STILL run some cleric tricks, most notably Lift Up Your Voices. In fact, that might be a much better route, since Lift can't be Exhausted.

Good stuff! Because RAISINS, I'm going to make a few substitutions (I want to use my existing card pool without proxies) - my swaps listed above. Thanks :D

Sweet! Let me know how it goes. :D

Haha I actually started proxying all of my decks just because I don't want to sort and store all of my old cards. XD So that is noble of you!
I would suggest trying to get a hold of Roland Tzin, he is a super key card for the deck. If you can't then I'd try to fit in a few more movement cards.

Stormwolf is probably better! I think I will make that change in my deck.

I've started setting things up so I can livestream games of Warlord over here (Shameless plug: http://www.twitch.tv/Oremm) - not using proxies will make it easier for the audience to follow. Screenshot of how the stream looks:

Will-do.

Although I probably wouldn't play this exact list, it does have one key thing that Oremm was missing. Bascarite Mark. And to go with that you have Yscarite Sentry + Sacrifice. All of your characters having +4 to their stats is so crazy good that I would almost include 3x Bascarite Mark despite it being unique. I'm also not familiar with the Legacy banned list, but if it were not for some reason banned Novice Ruth is amazing... In general when I make this deck I generally go for larger charachters, start a Baqbou or two, and use a healthy amount of mass stat boost stuff, because it being harder to kill your people can help you last long enough to win. Speed will not be your friend, but if you can get one Iam or Barret to live long enough, he can do some damage.

I think I getcha. Then I'll stick to Lady of Mercy for the weenie thing. As for slow, survivable, "if this one guy lives, you're Effed" deck, I already have Adonis built.

Seems fair. The other problem with the stall 'till kill thing with Edric and Adonis is the NPE for possible your opponent if they can't handle to stall stuff... In general I would say Lady of Mercy would be more fun to play against. And with her you can always throw in the few cards that let you stick her in the front and mop up with her. Also, Ill-Gotten Gains+Black Steel Daggers is a fun little anti-draw thing there.

Yep - already doin' that (except the ill-gotten gains) in LoM. Adonis is only NPE to inexperienced players. Once you know how to anticipate his reacts, he can crack like any other egg. Also, ranged strikes tend to be his bane.
