    It'll likely be the same kinda thing as collector's caches where every 4 chests has a 200, 400, 400, 600 or something like that - which is fine and really makes no difference - it's just the weirdest tiny little detail that they decided to have someone focus on for a day that seems odd.

    Big number woo!

    I just had a game like “if I can aero them here and they don’t have a way to spread power I win” and then they played to the lane I wanted them to be pulled to anyway like “oh ok then, I’ll just win I guess”

    Those are the games that make me wonder if they start giving you bots with internety usernames besides like Dwayne

    Well if I play a little more I might get the 600 and then I can afford the card I want in the shop right now. Oh fuck it was only 200. Well if I pay some gold the NEXT one can't be 200 right?"

    I have bled some cubes because people aren't playing good enough cards to get priority which is making my Valkyrie not quite as good as it could be. Like I'm over here rocking a lane with Ant-Man, The Hood, and a ROCK and they still can't wrest priority from me.

    Winning games with movement is simply impossible. It's not even fun to play with myself because it never fucking works!

    My problem with move is that it's so easy to see coming and shut it down compared to other stuff. Maybe a hybrid deck with move stuff and toss in Moon Girl/Dino, just feels like Heimdall especially is terrible, need something juicier. A funny one would be something that completely shuffles the card placement on the board but would count as Move for each card, something like that.

  • milskimilski Poyo! Registered User regular
    I have been having some luck with Move in the 50s since I got the season drop. I still wouldn't say it's good, but it's better than I thought it would be.

    The weaknesses are a bit more complex than I thought. There are a good number of move payoffs, but very few that pay off stuff moving to/from them besides Kraven, which would let the deck play more flexibly with Polaris/Aero. More importantly, there just aren't any good 4-5 drops for the deck that just offer good stats plus some sort of move enabling, which would go a long way to making the deck be less feast or famine. Multiple Man is also simultaneously an insane payoff and an extreme board clog that you can't afford, but I dunno what to do with that unless you lean in hard on Human Torch.

  • CoinageCoinage Heaviside LayerRegistered User regular
    Yeah I got Human Torch with tokens (!) because I thought then the deck would be good without trying to high roll MM, but no. You don't want to play most of your cards on curve, it's an awkward ass mess.

    In my experience, bots do have single word user names that are generally normal first names. They won't emote. They will use card backs, upgraded cards and occasional variants, and play legit decks with clear themes and win conditions. They just make moves that make no sense.

    It's mostly that bots (and Agatha and Ego) ignore location effects. That's what makes them sometimes seem so very, very boneheaded.

    Yep, also bots can have cards with normal backgrounds but infinity split card effects, i.e impossible cards.
    (My bots last night were Gabriel and some other normal complicated name like Christopher)

    Also can't believe anyone would ever get excited over caches once they're pool 3 complete.
    And randomising tokens won't help with that.. they're not cards and hardly help towards the pool 5 cards.

    Saw someone play the cutest discard deck. They ran collector and seemed to aggressively want to discard Swarm. They got a super big collector, but they did lose the game because they didn't play their free Swarms to my flooded location because they wanted to have a real big Collector. So...go them.

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    And 40 on the back of bots.
    Last bot, Leonidas.
    Not sure why there are more bots around this season when I didn't see any past 30 last season.

    Rode Zabu Ongoing from 50 to 60
    Then Death hit the store so I rode DeathWave from 60 to 70

    Gonna keep riding DeathWave until it fails me. Man its a fun deck.

    God imagine that card makes it in, it's been months since you pulled a pool 5 card, and it's a gimmick card that requires a human torch move deck, and it's still harder to pull off then zero red skull

    I would really hope it is a thrown away playtest/alpha idea, having a card require another NAMED card to be useful would just be bad design for this game.

    I have a new challenge for the thread! It's time for us to create The Worst. Deck. Evar.

    Here are the rules:
    • The deck must contain at least one card at each cost of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6
    • The deck cannot consist solely of cards with no abilities and/or cards with negative, zero, or 1-power values. (In other words, don't just build your deck by querying cards with no abilities and lowest power.)
    • The deck should be weak across as many locations as possible
    • Players using the deck should be trying to win, but losing due to the deck itself
    • Bonus points awarded for negative synergies (e.g., Cosmo/Armor in a Destroy deck) - the wackier the better


    Here's my 10-minute first attempt: https://snap.fan/decks/208681/

    It's a pretty brute-force approach, I'll admit. But there's something fun there with Invisible Woman and the Goblins together, as well as Sandman being in a deck that is largely low-cost/power cards.

    Unpredictability is a huge benefit in this game so you're going to win games just messing with your opponent's pattern recognition.

    These are kind of the most understatted guys for the cost. Three cost is by far the hardest I think that might be the cost with the most decent cards? It was Kingpin or Cerebro and I figured giving 2 power to Hela or something might accidentally win us the game more.

    It's a lot of cards that have no payoff. Ghost Rider and Hela without ways to discard, Dagger and Kraven without movement, Death, Deadpool, and Knull without ways to kill anyone. If Warlock is cheating, Bucky or Daredevil are basically equivalently awful with no good ways to pay off Daredevil in this deck.
