So me and a friend have begun playing this great game, only problem is that I'm being hammered by either a High elf/Imperial or HElf/Imp/Dwarf deck.

2 Chaos knights
1 Valkia the bloody
2 Dark Zealot
1 Vile sorceress

2x chillwind
1 Tzeentch firestorm
1 Flames of tzeentch

It's from a movie.
Are you sharing the base set with your friend? Cards like Contested Village are generally included in almost all decks with three copies included. That way you can have something that you can spend 1 resource on if you have a single resource leftover. 1 resource for 1 power, in general, is considered a "good buy".

Chaos is a hard base set race to play, their early (in card issue terms) units tended to be expensive and not do very cool stuff. Knowing this, you really have to pump up your kingdom. It's hard playing against Dwarfs because they can do that much better than Chaos. It's hard to give advice on a deck like this because there are so many singleton cards.

For instance: Is Word of Pain doing a lot for you? You could try replacing that with more copies of the quest you are running. Quests are nice because the units that are on them also help you draw cards. So if you bring one quest it's better to bring a whole play set.

sadly we are sharing and have limited the number of good neutral cards that we can have in our decks so noone gets an advantage from that.

Yeah I noticed when I wrote it down that I do have a few 1x cards, were trying to buy a corruption deck since that seems to be what the Dark elfs and Chaos benefit from, but seems hard to pull off.

Thanks for the advice though
