How to play this Deck

I find that this deck is more on the "I want to win" side then on the "I want to have fun" side. The goal of this deck is to hit your opponent with small attacks at the start of the battle, then bring out the teamworks and wear down their hand. Only to hammer then with large fighting attacks once they are out of large defnsive cards. Marvericks special Freelance Spy can be very potent, if used correctly. Play this card in a battle where you have Azrael's Know my Wrath in you hand or placed, and make sure you have some 7's and 8's, and at least one universe card so you can do maximum damage. Also make sure you save Canknuckle head in a battle where you have both some good offense and defense cards. In a battle where you know you are beaten, venture at least 3 cards in an attempt to bluff out your opponent. If your opponent does not feel comfortable with his hand, he may concede and if he doesn't slap down a fortress of solitude and end any misery you might be caused. By the way only use Devourer of worlds if your opponent is using locations, take it out of your deck! But if your opponent does happen to be using locations. Put down the Devourer of worlds just to piss your opponent off and even throw them off of their game, and if they negate it it's no big deal. You can always call it back with Web Headed Wizard, but if you have already played Freelance Spy call that back it can be a much more potent card.
