What the .... ??
Lodge Barkeep has a Syndicate symbol ? I really did not notice it, neither did any of my opponents.
Well, that changes everything and I have to rebuilt my own Lodge-deck from mono to lodge / syndicate -
but maybe that´s not a too bad thing.
First things first, here is the Lodge monodeck that I played until now ( I guess I owe some apologies to my fellow players now ...)
Dedicated Butler (3X)
Young Initiate (2X)
Errand Boy (2X)
Lodge Barkeep (3X)
Recruiter for the lodge (3X)
Zealous secretary (3X)
Disgruntled Chef (3X)
Dr. Baker * (2X)
Lord Jeffrey Farrington * (2X) Lodge Housekeper (3X)
B. Ramsadale Brown * (2X)
Knight of the outer void (3X)
High Wizard of the order (3X)
Steal the Soul (3X)
Brazier Enchantment (3X)
Ritual of the construct (1X)
Pose Mundane (3X)
Tcho-Tcho Talisman (1X)
Will of Azathoth (1X)
Silver Twilight Lodge (2X)
This deck worked quite well so far, but it hasn´t been optimised yet - still it won 5 out of 6 games, I think.
I have to admit though, that Lodge barkeep always was one of my game-winning cards.
The basic idea of this deck was to have lots of characters from the very beginning, including many low-lifes, which would be sacrificied to madness or combat,
while building a combo with Knight of the outer void and High wizard of the order.
Since there were some cards, that didn´t have a special purpose in this deck, I guess I will have options to include 10 Syndicate cards.
Until now, Dedicatet Butler, Ritual of the construct, Unbound, Tcho-Tcho Talisman and Errand boy were not really important in my strategy, so I will replace them with
some low-level syndicate characters, mainly to feed one domain with a syndicate symbol early and maybe there will be some level 1 characters which do a little more than "errand boy" ...
What do you guys think?
