Post Open Coreos Bodach Critical Strike Deck
Hello,

I'm working on a critical strike deck with a couple different ways to score critical strikes. The two ways I have so far in the deck is Coreos Bodach ability and Glyph of Fate. I use Vorpal Blade in combo wit the critical scores. I have recursion in the deck to feed Coreos. Here is the deck I have so far. Anyone have any ideas on how I can make this better?

Starting Army:
1x Coreos Bodach
3x Kyalid
3x Spectre of Madness

Army:
3x Achilleus
3x The Lost Bride
3x The Hungry Dead
1x Kilis of Flesh
3x Pravian
3x Barrow Wight
3x Hungry Dead

Actions:
1x Hel's Rune
3x Teleport
3x Death is But a Door
3x Fell Blow
3x Severed of Flesh

Items:
1x Chill's Razor
1x Altar of Flesh
1x Tepheroth's Scepter
1x Crown of the Isles
1x Dark Heart of Kylnion
1x Calix's Heart
3x Vorpal Blade
3x Glyph of Fate

I've updated my deck list to hopefully it make it better. I use cards like Coreos Bodach and Glyph of Fate to generate critical strikes. I use that in combonation with Vorpal Blade with my fighters. I also use that from my Warlord using Bracers of Ogre Power and Fell Blow. I have some cards to bring back characters from my discard pile to feed Coreos's ability.

Starting Army:
1x Coreos Bodach
2x Spectre of Madness
3x Kyra Squib

Army:
3x Achilleus
3x The Lost Bride
3x Aellano Sessaran
1x Kilis of Flesh
3x Pravian
3x Barrow Wight
3x Hungry Dead

Actions:
3x Grave Robbing
3x Fell Blow
3x Severed of Flesh

Items:
3x Vorpal Blade
3x Glyph of Fate
3x Griffon of Misear
2x Bracers of Ogre Power
1x Tepheroth's Scepter
1x Altar of Flesh
1x Helm of Undying
1x Nodwick
1x Ring of Vorn

I would drop the fighters and vorpal blades. Go with more hel's runes and enough weapons that they are not often dead cards. Troas' Pawn would be good for powerattack and the fourth wound with hel's tune and the bracers

This deck was originally supposed to be to use my Vorpal Blades. I always wanted to make a deck with them. When I discovered Coreos's ability I ended up throwing the Fell Blows in there as an after thought. I would rather stick with the Vorpal Blades with this deck idea and try to enhance it or leave as is and build it. The deck is just for fun - not for Tournaments.

Fair enough. In that case, consider using some enhanced card draw / search to put your pieces in play faster, like Extensions. And consider Phantom Steed either to get the blade wielder to the front or to get a blade holder back to the rank to equip it.

I like the Hungry Dead as a double use undead for the sacrificial play.

I would focus on fighters though for blade delivery systems. For one, it means that you can run consistent movement, be that Steeds or actions. Two, I might consider the merits of a few key strike generators just to disguise the threat. in particular, a couple of copies of Out of Breath and a couple of Beyond the Grave (or similar pre-4e equivalents if your 4e access is limited). That way you can have a no ready characters or visible strikes on the board, kill an undead for a crit, and then have the spent, vorpal holding fighter do the deed. and the Beyond the grave is so that you can still capitalize on the floating critical if they kill your vorpal delivery device. (regrettably the "before this fighter is killed" means that the critical success from Coreos has not been locked in yet).

a couple of fighters to consider:
Diirena Ebb - innate order based strike.
Cairn Rowan - Stealth, innate movement, and innate readying (with the right army)
Olrik Hammerfall - Undead

another fun trick could be Damothien's Dungeon - makes your non undead into undead, and your criticals ignore the fact that it makes everything Planar.

I could add Fell Blow with Gauntlets too as a adding strategy but I don't want to have this just a Fell Blow Deck. I want to use the Vorpal Blade as well.

and Krait with Black Journal

as non unique with scribe, and possible innate movement, I can totally see the Twisted Shade Version working. and use Grave Robbing to bring it into the front rank, then its action plus one other wizard movement to get into rank three for the Vorpal Blade, then BOOM. I like it.

It is possible to run this highlander. Multiple ways to pull off the combo and with all of those options highlander is viable.
