I am understanding a lot more now. This guy does an amazing breakdown in a series of videos showcasing the different deck styles on his YouTube channel:

Thanks to magic (duels of the planeswalkers) background I actually understand what's going on. Very sophisticated design. I am impressed. I usually get bored fast with card games that are not magic not even hearthstone held me and I hate magics luck/RNG heavy system. This game lessens those.
Have you guys downloaded the free reference guide that created by the dev of this game? (Search the same name of the game on AppStore) it's available on iPhone & iPad. Very good reference.
Some simple tips:
If you have two armies but only one land (you can only block and/or attack with one army) having a market in the same feif (feif as in connected cards) as that land and army will double the effect of armies you can recruit (2 instead of one)
More land allows you to control more armies for when you attack/defend. Example, if opponent has 3 armies and 3 land cards... but you destroy two of his land cards, he effectively cannot use the other two armies. They just sit there until he builds lands activate them.
Duplicate cards in hand? throw them up as towers. Defend yourself. Duplicate cards of cards already in play? Market, church, whatever - Tower them up. But...
Until you develop some kind internal strategy and understanding. (Which I still am) Keep at least a copy of your banner and prince so you can bequeath your prince (reshuffle all cards in your graveyard into your library) *gotta have a prince in a palace though to activate this ability* and it doesn't just activate it costs an action.
Sometimes, start a joust for his lands/property or whatever you ante up for to bet. If you don't think he has a banner in his hand - pop off! Learn this mechanic win or lose. It's an excellent mini game within the game. Turned shit around for me at one point when I was losing.
The YouTube playlist I linked above taught me a lot, but most of the knowledge came *after I played the game* for around 30min, went online, almost won, but lost because I didn't understand the attack mechanic good enough. I was aiming for his castle, I had more attackers but he had enough blockers so, attacks wasn't getting through. Anyways, post 30min gaming session I watch the YouTube videos again and it's like a water fountain of fresh water to a thirsty man. I gained way more insight.
The only free action is towering (from what I've acknowledged so far) tower all you want.
These are my noob tips as I am still a noob myself. But I thoroughly understand what's going on. I see how malleable the board can become with deceit and political tactics. Game of Thrones type shit.
