FSS LaGrange Four The Great Wall Weeping Willows x 2 The Shangshu Mansion Festival Circle Ancient Stone Arch Smiling Heaven Lake Proving Ground The Iron Palace Petroglyphs Stone Dolmens Foundation Characters Sinister Priest x 5 Wailing Apparition x 5 Big Brother Tsien x 2 Freebies Drowning in Blood x 3 Pocket Demon x 4 Cannibal's Banquet x 2 Die!!! x 3 Hitters Evil Twin x 2 Lai Kuang Cloaca The Alabaster King x 3 Midnight x 2 Sheriff Agathon Destroyer Infernal Army Cost cards The Alabaster Palace The Dragon Throne x 2 Underworld Coronation Insidious Plan x 2 Detonating Corpses x 2 Two-Headed Horror x 3 The Hand of the Underworld
Midnight is the absolute star of this deck, with a low resource cost, mobility allowing the horse to get into trouble easily, smoke, throw out eight extra damage from a detonating corpse, and then toast to ring in the coming of the Alabaster King for one power. Two-Headed Horror is a bargain at one power (with a Dragon Throne) and helps to clear the path a bit, as well as giving the King some interesting abilities of others. Destroyer is a bit of an anti-combo (toasting him for the King is a bit rough). An Evil Twin of the King is always welcome, and can be used to produce yet another King if the original dies. Its big weaknesses are edges and events, with only Festival Circle for the latter, and nothing for the former. It's also very power hungry, so Insidious Plan comes in very useful.
