This deck takes advantage of the Soulshift mechanic, as well as the spirit's damage prevention from Judgement. Start by buying time in the early game with Lose Hope and Last Gasp, killing elves or goblins. Build up some mana and start playing spirits. Vulshok and Cloak will make the Phantoms unkillable by damage. Rancor will make your guys more of a threat. Jukai can draw cards if left unchecked, but even if killed will net a Zubera or an Urchin. Use the Rend Flesh's sparingly for larger creatures. Don't be afraid to trade often, as they will run out of steam while you won't. Against decks with shadow or flying, you'll need to concentrate your creature kill. Fortunately most of those creatures are */1's, which makes Lose Hope all the better. Don't forget you can kill creatures in response to Rancor to make the spell fizzle so it won't come back. Hope these tips help and enjoy the deck.
