This is a straight forward Architect control deck. Try to keep your opponent at one or two sites. Use removal to take out any characters. If you can spend 1 power to take out each character that costs 3+ power, you will have an on-going power advantage. The Napalm Belchers try to keep weenie decks at bay. Never attack an unrevealed site. Use the non-combat damage of your characters to reveal the sites and soften them up. The deck could really use more Dangerous Experiments. I would also swap out the Sunless Sea Ruins for Temples of the Monkey King before playing this again.
