Here's what I currently have for my defense. It's a Israelite/Judean King combo. In that sense it's a pretty simple concept, but I have one pretty amazing combo in there that I think is pretty amazing. Using Gates of Samaria, I can beef up one of the Kings to some pretty high numbers (either King Ahab because he's already pretty high - except he has a pretty nice ability when banded to Jezebel - or King Omri because he's got the second highest toughness of the lot and his ability is pretty useless once I get a Samaria site or 2 out), then set him aside with Jeroboam's Idolatry. For several turns I'll be forcing my opponent to waste his/her first enhancement (unless they have some "utility" enhancements), depleting them of good battle winners more quickly.Anyway, here are the cards:Evil Characters:(7)King Ahab (RA2)Jezebel (RA2)King JoramKing Omri King Amon (Di)King Manasseh (Di)King ZedekiahEvil Enhancements:(7)Image of Jealousy (TP)Jeroboam's IdolatryStiff-NeckedBreaking Jerusalem's WallWickedness of the TenantsHaman's PlotDungeon of MalchiahEvil Fortresses:(2)Gates of JerusalemGates of SamariaAnything that you think can be improved upon, let me know.
Idk who King Joram is so that probably means he should go out for someone better. Definitely needs Gibeonite Trickery.
Great points. I actually was looking and decided to remove Joram and replace him with Nadab and Jeroboam I. I had originally cut them because Manasseh and Amon were a bit nicer and I originally didn't have Jeroboam's Idolatry in there so I figured Jeroboam I's ability was useless. Plus replacing the one guy with 2 guys means that Jeroboam's Idolatry removes a smaller portion of my defense from play. The fact that Jeroboam I and Manasseh are both good to have in the discard pile, I don't mind sacrificing them too much with Idolatry.As for King David, I do have Unholy Writ in there, but I agree. He can totally wipe out my defense's usefulness in a moment and the fact that I didn't think about that sooner is pretty bad because I've tried both King decks previously and run into problems with him. Unholy Writ, Christian Martyr, and Image of Jealousy should be enough to take care of him, though I think, especially since I can get Image of Jealousy back from the discard pile with Nadab or Amon.I'd consider throwing someone like Uzzah or Gomer in there, but I'm already out of space. This is a relatively large defense, especially for T1 2P where so many decks have almost no defense, so this is leaving me with little room for an offense.
This is meant to be a 50-56 card deck. If you have a 30 card defense, then you add 7doms and 7 Lost Souls, then you have 12 cards left for offense at best. Plus you need Artifacts and maybe Sites (which are necessary for this defense because of the benefits received with Samaria sites. Tell me what offense you use that allows you to fit a 30 card defense into a 56 card deck.

Who would get rid of Jephthah? I also hate Counsel of Abigail because I've run into too many situations where the enhancement I need to interrupt specifies "hero in battle" which means it doesn't change a thing.
Yea, but's there's no Abishai in this deck. Not that it isn't good without Abishai, but you mentioned him when he's not in the deck... I could add him though. This is still a 55 card deck.
True, but I probably wouldn't be using it to protect my heroes that much. I'd just use it for the discard mostly. And as long as I have a couple heroes not in there, I can get them back with Chariot.
I had thought of AS for a while, but I had decided I needed to keep the defense a little more slim and now with Saul in there... I really shouldn't be adding any more evil characters. SMC could be helpful, especially with the rising numbers from Gates and the already low-ish initiative on several characters.
I would suggest play-testing it now.
