This is the Jim Culver deck I built for All Purple All The Time, a challenge of sorts issued by The Arkham Chronicle YouTube Channel. You can find the video about Jim Culver and the deck at https://youtu.be/MZKQBDHm7-E
Earlier this month, I was approached by Ed from The Arkham Chronicle to participate in a collaboration involving four podcasts – The Arkham Chronicle, Mythosbusters, Drawn to the Flame and myself, The Whisperer in Darkness.
Ed pitched the idea that each podcast would design a deck using one of the four Mystic investigators available in the game. Each deck would be built on the assumption that it would be played in a four-player game with the other three Mystics. However, each deck would be build in secret, forcing each of us to speculate and anticipate what the others would bring to the table.
I built a deck for Jim Culver, while The Arkham Chronicle built a deck for Marie Lambeau. Mythosbusters and Drawn to Flame built decks for Agnes Baker and Akachi Onyele, respectively.
I discuss Jim Culver and the deck in more detail in the video. Briefly, I wanted to build a deck that could investigate really well, because I assumed the group would be playing The Path to Carcosa campaign. I also wanted the option to upgrade the deck to resemble FBone's 'Invincible Jim' deck, which attempts to abuse Grotesque Statue and Scavenging. Finally, I wanted to explore the idea of Jim as a Mystical Busker who could offload extra resources, items and assets to the other Mystics if necessary, hence the copies of Teamwork.
When I sat down to build the deck, I decided to start with the Ally slot, since I think it's one of the most interesting decisions that you need to make when teaming up with three other Mystics. I settled on Dr. Milan Christopher, because I assumed the Marie Lambeau deck would take Alyssa Graham. Leo De Luca is also a viable option, although you're giving up the precious Intellect icon.
Make sure you check out the other decks on their respective podcasts:
Do you think four Mystics have a chance, or is it a case of too many sorcerers spoil the magic? Let us know how we did!
