The Duke of Crows Patron Deck lets you draw cards almost infinitely in Tales of Tribute matches - ESO

Today we are going to take a look at the Duke of Crows Patron Deck that is part of the Tales of Tribute Card game in ESO (Elder Scrolls Online). The Duke of Crows is a Patron Deck that you will immediately gain access to after you complete the Tales of Tribute Tutorial

The Duke of Crows Patron Deck has great low cost cards that give a mixture of Coins and Power and also lets you draw additional cards. Who wouldn't want to draw 10 cards instead of the usual 5?

Lets first take a look at all the available Duke of Crows cards:

How to draw many cards with the Duke of Crows Patron Deck?

In early game if you are lucky you can collect fairly low cost cards that will almost guarantee you a win. I am talking about cards like Toll of Silver, Scratch, Pool of Shadow and Toll of Flesh. You also might be lucky to get two Scratch cards at the beginning. If you draw two Scratch cards in the same turn that is already 6 Coin and 4 Power.

And now to showcase a great example of how juicy the combos can be for the Duke of Crows deck:

Your hand starts with: 1x Scratch, 1x Toll of Silver, 1x Toll of Flesh. This combo alone will already give you: 8 Coin, 2 Power and you can also draw 2 extra cards. If you are lucky you might draw another 1x Scratch, 1x Pilfer, this would give you an extra 3 Coins and 2 Power and you can draw two extra cards

These are all cards that cost between 3 and 5 Coins. Of course there are more expensive cards too. Combos are even easier if you manage to get agents like the Blackfeather Knight or the Blackfeather Brigand. Because these active agents will also count towards the combos. I hope these examples showed you how easy it can be to draw a lot of cards just within one turn. 

Sometimes you can also find the Contract Action card Law of Sovereign Roost in the middle, if you already have 2 Duke of Crow cards in your hand, it might be wise to also get the Law of Sovereign Roost card to draw one extra card and on top of that the enemy has to discard one of his cards next turn, meaning he will only be able to play 4 cards instead of 5. 

Of course, the Duke of Crows Patron Deck is best played in combination with another deck, such as the  Saint Pelin Patron Deck in Tales of Tribute in ESO. Because if you can draw a lot of cards that also give you plenty of power you will be at 40 Prestige insanely fast. Especially if you manage to snag The Armory early on. If you draw a lot of cards that means cards from the cooldown pile will go to the draw pile a lot faster, giving you a faster cycle compared to your opponent.

One last note, you can of course also flip the Duke of Crows Patron to turn Coins into Power. Often I see players flip this Patron too early and then they don't have access to the huge Coin generation in the late game. This will backfire because the enemy will certainly use it when he has a lot of coins. So don't use this too soon. 

And lastly, the enemy might be aware of these strats and might try to pick some of these cards up for themselves too.
