I like to call this deck What Happened? because by the time you are done with your opponents, they are wondering what happened. -----Mark

There. 60 exactly. I selected a generic opening hand - if you have something
cute in mind like taking advantage of the military force (you'll be very
strong in military: one card in six is a fleet) by a first turn Military
Buildup + 1st Battle Fleet + Crusade, go right ahead. Add B5 War Council if
you feel like it. Or go dip and add rally the people and some other fun
stuff, sure.

As is, the deck has just one purpose - push B5 influence up fast and win
with it. Alliance of Races gives you 30 or so final power, quite enough for
a Major victory. If it fails, Peace in Our Time will make you if not winner,
probably second place holder. You're strong enough on most fronts, and
probably supreme in Psi, which is your key against We Are Not Impressed.
Other anti-power enhancements are to be dealt with using Glitch when the
time is right.


First Strike by Mark

Human Military & Diplomacy Deck- this deck is not as powerful as 'what happened', but it is still quite effective, especially for friendly games, and for people that dont have access to every single card. The basic strategy is to push your power past 20 using conflicts and agendas.

Agendas: 1
Power Politics

Characters: 8
Jeffrey Sinclair
Senator Voudreau
Frederick Lantz
Susan Ivonava
General Hague
John Sheridan
Stephen Franklin
Miagi Hidoshi

Groups: 1
Psi Corps Intelligence

Conflicts: 13
MGunboat Diplomacy (3)
MBorder Raid (3)
MLimited Strike (3)
DPlague
DTest Their Mettle (2)
DAffirmation of Power

Aftermaths? None, unless you ABSOLUTELY have to have one.

Events: 12+ (add some more, these events are the bare minimum)
Bloodied but Unbowed
Glitch (2)
Special Ops
Level the Playing Field (3)

Colonial Fleet

Locations: 1
Earth

Enhancements: 3
Mobilize Reserves (2)
Fleet Support Base

Contingencies: 1
Bluff

 

The first thing I usually do is bring out Ivonava and then promote her. I usually put a Deep space fleet and a border raid in my starting hand, to have a quick build of influence. After that, initiate a border raid, and then from there it is totally open.

Opening moves: Build influence to 10, bring out Minister Durono. Next turn promote him to the inner circle and the turn after that bring out homeworld and do an Intruige conflict (you should win so rotate Centuri prime and play the after math"Twisting the Knife" and youv'e got 13 influence). Then play the agenda "Rise of the Republic", hidden (counts highest tension as power so if narn is playing you have 17 power!!!!!!). The only weekness is Diplomacy but with emporer turhan and a few others that is not a major problem.


Others will come shortly.
