Jahaziel is a contingency. Really, his main purpose is to recur Meeting the Messiah via Battle Prayer. Originally, there were many more Judges in this deck, and he was also used to place SS. When I changed deck formats, I never really considered taking him out, but perhaps he and the Ravine could make way for more useful cards. I like Ehud's Dagger (especially now that Moses is a Judge) and something extra for Site access (I occasionally get locked out with no cards in opponent's hand or deck).
Laver is useful beyond belief. It's essential to this deck that I get Abom placed ASAP, and with the amount of speed elements the turnover is really high. In addition, if I have PO out, I can Laver four EC's with impunity, and once Abom is placed I can Laver the other Greek. Also, most of my Enhancements are redundant negates. Long story short, I get a LOT of use out of this Artifact.I don't like HT for this deck because it has such a high probability of being a useless card, between Hur, WatW, Feast of Trumpets, Mayhem etc. SWJ seems kind of useless unless I also add DD. Perhaps if I add Generous Leper and more roguish Gold elements, it would make more sense, but atm I don't see it doing much.
I am considering taking out SS. I don't think I've ever used it. The only think I'm balking at is that it's pretty much a win used by Moses.
Ooh, doesn't it also stop Burial Shroud? I've been frustrated a few games when I was able to Abom my way to a walkthrough, only to have BS pulled on me, during which time my opponent was able to draw defense. That's a good idea.As far as Site Access, I was thinking Land Dispute. Unlike other Site Access, it's not useless against an opponent who doesn't play Sites, and is a good failsafe against TGT and Z-Temple if my Abom isn't able to get rid of them.I'd also like to find a way to fit Torment in, along with Worship of Milcom. 12/12 Amon recurring Foolish Advice is yum. What do you think of that idea?
Here is the revised version. I still want Gates of Jerusalem, but I can't figure out what to remove for it.
What do you do when all of your Philistines are converted via Holy Grail and Meeting the Messiah?Kirk
@Bryon, I would love to have Martha in here as well, but I can't think of any card she would be more useful than. Perhaps if I end up taking out Flee (I rarely use it, for some reason) and Three Nails (unlikely), I could fit her in with Gates, but perhaps you see another card I could take out?
