Strategy

Like most escape items, the deck of escape should be used early and often. Many of these cards can directly affect battles (Velocity, Elixir, Exile), while Tomb requires an open space to use.

This deck is a strong contender for both Triple Draw and Stack Five, as the deck of escape has a strong variety of clashing effects. Conversely, Draw Four is relatively weaker; Tomb tends to be anti-synergistic with most other escape cards.
