Den defense is better for day 0, 1 and 2 (unless you really need to play something that costs 1 the moment the game starts). Forced inheritance is better for day 3+ I think your deck wants to be better on day 0, 1 and 2 because it is built for speed.
Opponents getting more difficult, built a new deck
Agents (21): 5 Teodor Viscardi 5 Charles de la Motte 4 Beautiful Heiress 2 Selim 5 Suleiman
Actions (34): 5 Den Defense 5 Clothes Make the Man 5 Forced Inheritance 5 Magnetic Personality 5 Bearer of Mixed Tidings 2 Just Cause 2 Royal Decree
Sites (5): Harbor of Theodosius
Deck went under serious revamp. I didn't like the way the deck was playing, even though it was originally intended to be a fast deck I wasn't winning until mid to late game because the income wasn't coming in fast enough. So I changed the entire look of the deck to heavily favor action cards that get to the agents as fast as possible and then buff them.
I changed to Harbor instead of Dante because Dante was taking up HQ space and unable to safe fast enough to open up much needed room. Also, if Dante is surprise launched from Selim's effect he is only able to safe target one agent. All safe effects afterwards autotarget that same agent even if he is already safed. (Possible bug?)
Another thing of note about Selim's effect is if Teodor is surprise launched his effect will also have surprise but it will still have cool down (half day instead of full day) even though the image doesn't show it. However, if Teodor is launched before Selim his effect will not have surprise and it will take the normal full day.
I put back in Clothes Make the Man because I will usually link it up with a bearer of mixed tidings, get more bearers or clothes and continue the chain until I have 15+ cards in my hand. So essentially a free card with added possibilities. In my original deck Bearer was always negated and I would depend on my next card to determine victory or defeat. (Heart of the cards anyone?)
I put both Den Defense and Forced Inheritance in because of the shortage of income which was the main bane of my original deck. I wasn't able to get enough income for suleimans way too often or using Teodor's effect was too expensive in time and percentage of total income. Especially with the extra 10 cards in this deck and the generally more expensive average card the extra income is a must.
I'm still testing out how the deck plays without Borgia Tower but my logic was that Teodor was no longer stuck being 0/1 or 1/1 and needing to be buffed. No more Dantes in my deck as well and magnetic personality and harbor keep my agents safe enough. But this was definitely one of the more iffy decisions.
Haven't played enough games to really tell if this is a better deck than my other though and I'm always open to suggestions.
