    The only change I would recommend is to try Choke in Brennan's first five. Choke is fantastic for breaking your opponent's plans/tempo in the first round when they tend to have things planned out.

    My wife is the same. Some match-ups (e.g. Jessa vs Aradel) certainly require more convoluted thinking on one player's part (Jessa's in this case) so maybe go for games like that at first.

    A better handicap might be found in the selection of decks (if using base decks). Some match-ups are definitely in favour of one PB over the other. For example:

    I believe you can only redirect the damage from one.

    Why? Because Redirect triggers off a situation where your Phoenixborn would receive damage. When resolving an 'attack a Phoenixborn' action,...

    If Aradel decides to start exhausting Noah's dice, he can start to lose pretty quick. Of all the Phoenixborn, Noah has one of the biggest needs for power and class faces, yet he has no dice...

    Thanks for the response. I see that I chose a bad example. Maybe the conflict I was anticipating doesn't exist in the game at the moment.

    Order of Declaring Reactions

    Hypothetical question. If both players can react (either with a reaction spell or unit effect) to a trigger. Who has to declare their reaction first.
