Strategy

This deck is nicknamed the Pawpsicle deck as you can cycle the item card from your discard pile with Nick Wilde – Wily Fox. On play, Pawpsicle allows you to draw a card and you can banish it to remove up to 2 damage from chosen character.

There are good card draw options with Hiram Flaversham – Toymaker and Judy Hopps – Optimistic Officer by banishing Pawpsicle or any of the items: Fishbone Quill and Shield of Virtue. Another card draw option is Gaston – Intellectual Powerhouse.

Noi – Orphaned Thief is a great little character, particularly if you have an item in play as she gains Resist +1 and Ward, making her a difficult target.

Extra inking options include Gramma Tala – Storyteller, One Jump Ahead, Fishbone Quill and if you become really desperate then Let It Go.

There are several Rush characters in Queen of Hearts – Impulsive Ruler, Scar – Vicious Cheater and Maui – Hero to All to keep pace.

Strategy for

This can be quite a fast and furious deck.

The classic play from The First Chapter still remains a good opening option – turn one: Lilo – Making a Wish, turn two: Simba – Protective Cub. Maleficent – Biding Her Time is also a good turn one character for this play too.

Alternatively, and new with Rise Of The Floodborn is turn one: The Queen – Regal Monarch, turn two: shifting into The Queen – Commanding Presence. Another shift option is Stitch – Rock Star though you will have to wait a little longer for this. There are 32 characters costing 2 ink or less which makes Stitch – Rock Star and his ability a good choice.

Finding Arthur – Wizard’s Apprentice early on is the main focus as you can rack up lore fairly quickly. Cards such as Be Our Guest and Friends On The Other Side can help look for him. Look out for combos with Merlin – Goat to gain 5 lore in one turn by playing and bouncing back to hand (or 6 lore if you have enough ink to play him again afterwards). Questing with Pinocchio – Star Attraction and Arthur – Wizard’s Apprentice will bag you 6 lore also.

Healing options are good ol’ Rapunzel – Gifted with Healing and even Madam Mim – Fox and Madam Mim – Snake are good ways to “heal” by bouncing characters back to hand.

With so many cheap characters with low Willpower, be mindful of playing such a wide board.
