Reaver's Axe + Dragon's Flame is funny. Never even used (let alone read) its other ability...

Step Stone Divide > Odin's Wrath > Dragon's Flame + Reaver's Axe is ridiculous. Talk about a heavy hit. If it gets that far, it WILL hit...i stake my life on it lol.

The other Astrid's are in there for the 6cc, nothing more really.

Step 1 reveal Astrid as your starting character
Step 2 Your opponents scoop step

drop wolf strike
add hungry for battle, maybe another reavers axe, and the cards SMazzurco suggested... you win

God I hate Astrid

I would really take another look at some of Astrid's foundations, or any foundations that have the Weapon keyword on them. Smazzurco's suggestions would go a long way in helping Astrid's damage pump be that much more devastating.

More draw and/or recursion will help out a lot! Not sure you need 20 attacks tho. 16 - 18 might be more the $$.

Don't be trying to pass up my post count Rockstar....lol

Add another reaver. Not sure why 3rd Rite is in there. Btw step stone divide is a printed 8 dmg weapon.

And this is why i post my standard decks lol. Some cards like Financial Troubles and Step Stone Divide ran right by me. fml... And i probably will add another Reaver Axe. The 3rd Rites are filler honestly; didnt have anything else. And don't ya know the general rule Iari? Beat them before they beat you lol >< And as for Jin hating Astrid; its all about the Pummel Smash lol. Just be happy it isnt a Chain Throw hehe....that would suck.

Its like C or UC. Won't be hard to find. It IS a 2 check...

Dragon Lift could stand in for Wraith as well. 2-check but only 4 diff. Stun 2.

I don't think your run enough stun to warrant For the money, try a different pressure foundation like Defeated the rifle maybe?

also I would suggest getting ahold of Payihng respect to your ancestors, they're awesome in astrid, lastly why no actions?

I dont have a very good selection of actions to choose from (that i knw off). Give me ideas? For the Money is just an awesome card in general. I would use it playing a block just to make them commit me 2 foundations. Friends and Rivals ftw. Working on Paying Respects.

Play as many weapon foundations that exist as you can. Then go for broke.

Personal thoughts, I'd go and pm shadow dragon as I see her as the front most expert in Astrid Or ask'em to take a look at the deck.
