In ancient tomes a tale has been told
A tale of evil and horrors of old:
“Fallen Angels and Specters announce the coming
A demon and hordes of the nether are spearheading the summoning
Dark Rituals, mysterious stones,
– a ring of fire: a sight to behold!
The caretakers of hell presides the required sacrifice
On altars of wood and bone
a dream of the underworld!
A demonic being, a Tutor from hell
A mind twisting entity in a terrible shell
Indeed the end is near
the priest are announcing him
The world will tear
When you hear the bells toll and a howl from beyond
Because he is here – and there will be no dawn!
What is it?
Who is it?
The lord himself?
The Fürst der Unterwelt!”
Look, ma! I built a theme deck! With a poem to go with it!
No, it is not particularly strong. Yes I should probably try to fit a Hellfire or 700 other on-theme cards in there. But no, I will not. The deck as it stands has a lot of surprising, potentially strong synergies. And it has been a lot of fun to design and built!
