Deck Name: Emerald inevitability(Haamujengi)
Author: Dada
Description:

I'm very rudely hijacking Emerald Legionnaires deck building.
Lets see how good the Liquidation-Emerald legionaire-Soul feasting "combo" really is.

I don't like to build 90 card decks, but Liquidation+Intercept kinda forces me to do so...

Cards to think about:
-Dead hand(against grinders)
-Shroud Mastery(well why not, so many ghosts)
-Spiritual Intervention(maybe this is the right way to do combat, I'll try Fort with vitals first, the ghosts love it.)
-Piper(might be better than acting, since we are going Guardian vigil/Constant revolution anyway)
-Mercy for Seth is kinda gimmicky, but supports the grind aspect of the deck. Might change that to Walking stick later.
-IMO Soul feasting is strictly better than Ghost-Eater with Emerald legionnaires.
-I just didn't find any room Vengeful Spirits even though it might seem weird.


The deck itself can get to:
+4 stealth and 1 block fail, when recruiting Emerald legionaire.
+8 Intercept when blocking.
-Also as a bonus, has 5 ways to untap Legionaires that themselves benefit from unmasking.

Crypt is still WIP. Because most likely this recursion wont work without Giovanni :P

Dreams of the Sphinx is good, and helps you move Legionnaires to the ash heap.

Erciyes Fragments is good, and you can defend it, and milling you prey means there are that many more targets for it.

Looks fun! Maabara is slow unless you're running lower Masters.. You've got a bit of recursion with Gear Up and Garibaldi Museum. Piper is a natural fit., how about Libertas to shush other Legionaires?

I believe this deck has already gone through close to 10 iterations and has had changes even though OT has not updated. :) Saying this from experience, playing in the same tables as the owner :)

While I'm not sure on the state of the latest iteration of the deck, I do think that inevitability of the void and slaughterhouses were among the first cards to be removed from this list. They did nothing most of the time. Maabara was still in last I saw this deck. The point is that the deck requires one legionnaire on the table to bring all others back, and Maabara is one way to ensure that.

Also in the Crypt, Babalawo Alafin which gives you 2 free discards turned out to be more important than the other vampires and their number was thus pushed up and Erebos was pushed down. The list here is the first iteration done in the abstract and thus doesn't have the fine-tunings that the deck has since received.

ps. This deck is a new archetype imo. Lots of potential. Several other players are picking up legionnaires lately.

The deck definitely has legs and can be considered a new archetype, it already has at least 3 TWDA entries(too bad i'm not one of them)
Also your analysis about the different iterations are also correct.

Here is the version I played at "Garou Rim The Call vol. 2 (30.6.2018)"
More focused on silver bullets and hard answers rather than light intercept.
Too bad the meta was VERY against Haamujengi, everyone knew it would be coming and were prepared accordingly.

Hi Dada,

I'm wondering why you added the anarch angle. Just for 3 x Gear Up?

Best regards,

Pallando
