Conjuration Deck (3)
Tons of tech around Shield Mage in this deck. Strongest synergy is with Small Sacrifice since you don't mind dealing damage to her (or anything on your board thanks to that life gain), and because she takes advantage of the Focus 1 ability fantastically. If your opponent decides to focus her down, it really only plays in your favor since it triggers Sembali's ability AND you can [[ceremonial:power]] fetch her for 0 to trigger your Chained Creations.
Just about everything in the deck thrives from having more health. Stormwind Sniper and Leech Warrior don't have to waste any Recovery now, and Celestial Knight which was already a pain becomes a flat out nuisance. Plus, it's easy to use Shield Mage for Sembali's ability and for Veil of Reversal as it's a super easy card to replay.
The idea here is to win by burning your opponent out, largely by removing them of their resources. Sembali's ability combined with Chained Creation and Veil of Reversal heavily stifles your opponent's conjurations, Fade Away deals with their allies, and Shifting Mist combined with your [[illusion:power]] dice and Leech Warrior with Small Sacrifice dull your opponent's dice pool (which is fine, you don't need that many dice to function). Eventually, you slow roll your opponent through slow burn via Stormwind Sniper and Fire Archer, heavy recursion, and the sheer power of Celestial Knight.
You could alternatively swap to Astrea and design a bit differently.
