Black Hand

Author:  Steve "The Champ" Valladolid

This is Steve's winning deck from GenCon.

I designed the deck to be played defensively at the start using cheap event cards. The deck tries to accumulate power and discourage attacks against you with cards like Tortured Memories, Inauspicious Return and the defensive sites.  I use cards like Robust Feng Shui to stop an attack against me for 2 power and redirect the damage to an opponent's site that I will be attacking next. Tortured Memories is flexible as it can be used defensively in the  early game and offensively later.  I also tried to pay a lot of attention to the power curve so that I always have cards to play.
