Hello guys, I've unfortunately come across a 100 dp deck that is really strong in pvp and fairly cheap to make. In fact it's so strong that I am probably never going to play this in 100 DP unless somebody has an interesting counter to this that isn't a mirror match.
In this deck, there is only one slight hard to get card which is moral crackdown and it should only really be used in rare situations where the enemy is trying to field lock you and play medic knight or guitar witch maid.
Character: Child Laevateinn
Followers (9 in total):
Knight Sgt. Seyfarf x2
Council Pres Hermes x2
Sword Girl Luthica x3
Crux Nurse x2
Student Council Monthly x2
Spells (21 in total):
Sense of Belonging x2
Growing Congregation x2
Morals Crackdown x1
Ominous Sky x3
Thank You x1

How the deck works:
The deck works by forcing your opponents to overbuff there own followers to get through your high defence minions and kill them before they deck out. There aren't many characters that can counter this either. The reason is the stamina is already so high, that many of the effects pretty much do nothing.
There are of course, minions that do direct stamina damage and ignore defence. Seyfarf is a good answer to some of these. But you can also use cards to swap there stats or play a moral crackdown type removal. Alternatively, sword girl luthica counters the ones that don't buff too much because she gains stamina every turn. The ones that get too strong, you can attempt to steal.
Ideally, you want to play thank you, ominous sky, and a crux nurse or sword girl luthica and try to stall as long as possible until you get into a position where you can either deck your opponent or steal there really powerful followers.
Sample Match ups:
There are two types of child laev decks, the bad ones that don't try to deck you with medic knight/.... with guitar witch maid and the good ones that do.
These are matchup dependent. If you go first, you want to win by turn 101 by passing as many turns as possible. if you go second, it helps to know the deck, but the general principle is to chip away with luthica until they play something.
The below image is what a typical child laev mirror should end up as:
Against off faction buff decks:
Very easy. You have lots of answers. Play Luthica and crux nurse/vacation/thank you at start. Wait for them to buff and steal there minions when they can't make a comeback.
Against on Faction buff decks:
More challenging since you won't be able to use a lot of your cards. But you basically need to save sense of belongings to counter there sense of belongings on your own minions. Very similar to the above deck. Just wait for them to buff and play either swap spell/vacation. If the opponent doesn't over buff, try to make an unkillable minion/play sword girls luthica in a way that any debuffs wont kill her.
Some example combos:
- seyfarf + vacation into congregation expansion the next turn. This steals any minion that is buffed.
- nightmare and crux nurse/student council monthly. A minion that insta kills the opponents card or makes them pathetic enough that you can kill them.
- Sword Girl Luthica/crux medic + mass defence buffs like thank you and ominous skys. Make your minions so strong that your opponent has to buff there minions to an obscene point to kill them.
- Hermes and relaxation/swap spell. This card makes it pretty much impossible for your opponent to overbuff there cards to do enough damage to hermes in 100dp. Hermes will slowly raise the defence of any attackers and remove them from the field. So yes, they might get two or three attacks, but then they just disappear.
There's a lot more smaller combos but these are the main ones that I use.
Potential trade outs:
Besides mirrors, which are a toss up, I don't what else counters it. You should consider adding a third hermes for an ominous sky against slower controlly decks. Against faster passcode decks, you want to play as many ominous skys and thanks yous as you can. Another swap or two can help against the right deck as well.
