Welcome to the Official Redemption® Message Board!
I can almost guarantee whatever offense you post, people will recommend not using Syrians with it
Pol is just being cynical. Syrian's can work and are not a bad choice if your card pool is limited. They aren't top tier and will not win the next high level tournament, but they can be fun and effective in casual play.
I have found Brown Kings (Samaria or Judah) to work very well with a Red/Purple offense.
