Usually i go with Nigh/root but gretchen was banned this week so i tried the popular ghe/nigh deck, it worked great xu 52 and methane could easily pressure the opponent after a mediocre hit, phyllis also great one don't work so well with azel but immune to dr that's a nice bonus overall bit more offensive then the root/nigh, leviathon come in handy too.
Roots/nigh deck i usually run lately
Not properly tested deck, high power versatile sound great in theory, i felt it mediocre for a few rounds i tried it maybe just missed the soa but it has
+very stable cards
+flinch, enemy not able to use soa cards offensively
+works pretty good against dmg reducers
+tobbie , lena against power reducers
-i miss soa but you can't have everything, junkz is a viable option instead of sentinel but i prefer this way
I tried both and i can say without a doubt xu 52 is better the ability to use your card fully anytime is a massive advantage. Only
time wardom is better when he is not stopped by soa and plan to use more than 3pillz on him, of course with his revenge ability chances are your opponent will plan ahead and predict any usage of that card therefore is he has any means to counter it it will happen.
I love those cards , but one must not overdo their use like gretchen is in the same category but having both of them in the hand could be troublesome especially if for some reason you can't play them early, but even in round 3. azel does 7/4 +3 poison, pretty good for a 4* card.
