This deck is under construction. Anyone is welcome to contribute - check the talk page to find out more.

This deck is designed to be similar to Chess Plus Plus. It is designed so players can have a different strategy and army. All cards should be black (000000) to be chess-like. I do not intend to make all the cards exactly the same as Chess Plus Plus.
