YO HO HO MATEYS! Have you ever wanted to play an investigator who is a pirate? Well look no further than
Silas Marsh Roland Banks. (Author's note: Roland Banks is not actually a pirate. It just happens that the acronym for this deck is ARRR and I thought it would be funny to pretend that made him a pirate. I apologize for anyone who is disappointed and actually expected a pirate.)
How does ARRR work?
The goals of ARRR are as follows:
-Use search effects to trigger Astounding Revelations, thinning our deck out and giving us a lot of resources. Practice Makes Perfect, Prepared for the Worst and Dr. Elli Horowitz are fantastic for this. This deck features 6 Practiced skill cards to go along with PMP.
-Use Dr. Elli to get Relics into play and use them to kill enemies (and by extension discover clues). Disc of Itzamna can kill 2 health enemies on spawn. Not only does this trigger Roland's special ability to gain a clue for no test and no action, it also creates a window for him to play Glory, drawing 2 cards. Enchanted Blade is also a great and flexible weapon for dealing 1 or 2 damage as needed. Because Elli is a search, she synergizes fantastically with our Researches.
-Guts, Take the Initiative, Hallowed Mirror, and Practice Makes Perfect (to find TTI) can all help you defend against Will treacheries and/or protect your 5 sanity.
-Perceptions help you investigate at 5 and can be found with PMP. If needed, Glory has 2 Int icons for an investigate as well.
ARRR with XP
-With XP, we want Stick to the Plan (to instantly trigger an AR and thin your deck more) and Segments of Onyx. The true goal of this deck is to be able to get Pendant of the Queen into play. With card draw throughout the deck (especially from Glory) you should be able to find the Segments fairly quickly.
-We also can opt into Surprising Find with XP. The main benefit of this is thinning our deck out even more to get our Segments and weapons out even faster.
-We also want upgraded Enchanted Blade for even more card draw and also horror healing. And naturally, Elli can hold onto this for us to save us time and money.
Overall, this is a deck that has damage, clues, resources, card draw, defensiveness... everything really! Give it a go in solo or multiplayer and let me know how ARRR works for you!
