This deck was built for episode 114 of Drawn to the Flame, in which we announced the two upgraded versions of Grisly Totem, coming out in For the Greater Good. I talk about the deck in detail on the episode, here: https://drawntotheflamepodcast.blogspot.com/2019/04/episode-114-visions-of-futures-past-viii.html
Hey folks, Peter here! I threw together this list with the intention of it working with Grisly Totem iii (Seeker). It's inspired by some chat I've seen involving Ancient Stone; the aim is to use a tasty shroud location and Drawing Thin to get 8 or 9 changes when you solve Ancient Stone, making Minh into a magical damage cannon later on in the campaign. It's generally a more offensive Minh, and before you get the Stones up and running, you still have Drawing Thin and Fire Axe to work with.
To trigger the Stones, she has endless ways to draw cards: beyond the upgraded Totem, she has Drawing Thin, Analytical Mind, Mr. "Rook" (bonus points if you draw your weakness with him for additional damage), Neutral Skill cards, and Preposterous Sketches/Cryptic Research. With everything firing, drawing 3 or 4 cards off a skill test is pretty achievable, blasting apart even relatively chunky enemies. Later in this cycle, we get Occult Lexicon and Blood-Rite which almost seem tailor made for this deck...
Of course, she can still clue well too, although there isn't too much clue acceleration in this deck. I feel like Crack the Case could well be some extra cluepower, and maybe either the Magnifying Glass or axe goes for a Fingerprint Kit?
Lastly, this might be the deck to finally use Truth from Fiction; it can go on Mr Rook and our upgraded Stones, plus you might want to pick up something like In the Know for a more static support Minh.
Upgrades, obviously you want the Ancient Stones I as soon as possible to get working on a translation. Charisma gets both your allies out, and can maybe let you add in an Art Student too? Aside from that, standard good Seeker cards will see you well, Cryptic Research, Higher Education (even at 8 xp...), Deduction. Let me know if you try this and how it works out!
