Atlanta Kotei: Top Phoenix Deck (T16)

On the other end of the spectrum from the Lion, the Phoenix at Atlanta only had four representatives, and had the lowest top-of-clan finisher, with Kevin Kennedy making 5-2 and finishing 16th place. He ran a City of Tears military deck:

As you can see, Kevin likes to Cav around fights early, and then blow stuff up later. Unfortunately, while this is a solid Phoenix archetype, Phoenix are all over the place these days, with lots of solid deck options but nothing that has risen above the rest so far, which makes it hard to decide what Phoenix decks are worth putting into a gauntlet.

You can discuss Kevin’s deck on the Strange Assembly forums (along with the other Atlanta T16 decks)
or on the Phoenix Clan Forums.
