Strides and G Guardians:-
4 Abominable One, Gilles de Rais
2 Mask of Demonic Frenzy, Ericrius
2 One Steeped in Sin, Scharhrot
2 Rebellious Retainer of Fresh Blood, Frederick
4 False Dark Wings, Agrat bat Mahlat (G-Guardian)
2 Nighttime Gentleman, Saint-Germain (G-Guardian)
- Compared to the Amon based decks, Scharhrot is a little more calculative. Your prime objective is to hit 6 souls ASAP to kick off all your other skills. More importantly is the need to put a card into the soul every turn to fulfill conditions for Darkness.
- For one thing, do not worry about calling Glanzend Vampir early in the game as he is wonderful for preparing the deck for the late game as well fixing the soul count to as close to 6 as possible.
- Now the deck is taking a page from decks like Pale Moon where things in the soul can be manipulated. No Perfect Guard and There is 1 in the soul? Fulfill the conditions for Darkness and pull it out.
- Now for the main deck strategy. Ericrius and Frederick are the ideal 1st strides. Some people prefer Kisskill but it’s a preference. The issue with Kisskill that I have to hit in order to Soulcharge. So basically, if the attack does not hit, you miss out on all benefits. That is not the case for Ericrius nor Frederick as the maximum benefits come from having the attack hit. But if it doesn’t, at least the objective of Soulcharge is met.
- Do not be afraid to throw out the G-Guardians early if you cannot handle all the damage coming your way. After all, Dark Irregulars are not known for their late game defenses, save a few select builds. And Agrat Bat Mahlat is perfect for the “soul” purpose of filling the soul (Pun intended).
- Hitting the point of 10 souls is where you bring on the hurt. Scharhrot and Gilles De Rais are the way to go. Ideally, you will want to go with Scharhrot first to send things into your soul and aim for as close to 15 souls as you can before Gilles De Rais.
- Scharhrot is my preference for the massive field control. In fact, even if you do not send anything into the soul, as long as you have 10 souls, the opponent has to retire all rear-guards. And nothing makes you feel better than knowing you have 16 cards in the soul on the turn you use Gilles De Rais to send out Enigmatic Assasin for a 20ooo Power booster.
- And that is the general mechanics of the deck. Now go forth and spread my vampiric brood, Children of the Night!
