Strategy

The idea is to challenge opponents while having Shere Khan – Menacing Predator in play to benefit from gaining lore each time and Queen of Hearts – Sensing Weakness to draw a card. Having Scar – Vicious Cheater take out several opponents characters can really make use of this play.  Rush characters such as Queen of Hearts – Impulsive Ruler and Maui – Hero to All are useful too.

Aside from challenging, you can control your opponents characters with Lady Tremaine – Imperious Queen and Maleficent – Monstrous Dragon and control their hand with You Have Forgotten Me.

The thematic pairing of playing Mother Gothel – Withered and Wicked followed by Rapunzel – Gifted with Healing can really reap the rewards, maximising your card draw. As soon as Mother Gothel comes into play, your opponent will know what’s happening so be careful of timing.

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.
