    Bleh.

    Been trying to move deck with the location.
    Got
    # (1) Human Torch
    # (1) Iron Fist
    # (2) Dagger
    # (2) Kraven
    # (2) Cloak
    # (3) Green Goblin
    # (3) Doctor Strange
    # (3) Juggernaut
    # (3) Vulture
    # (3) Kingpin
    # (4) Miles Morales
    # (6) Heimdall
    #

    And largely don't know what I'm doing.
    Most wins appear to be from moving right with strange instead of moving left.
    Or people just tripping over their own game plan.

    I have just been running down my last of decks trying to find footing today. Nothing has felt great. Patriot and basic DeathWave have felt the most consistent/winning but they’re much worse at climbing for me At least with only a couple games each.

    Hazmat!

    Oh yeah I’ll try that next. Been seeing some lists

    Absent a Prof X or Cosmo, why wouldn’t Polaris actually move something? Maybe she chose Colossus who couldn’t go? (Over the… uh, Armor, Nova, or Bucky she could have chosen)

    Answered my own question. Annoying.

    Deathwave is still my most consistent but I'm trying to make an Electro Ramp work without having Shuri.

    And then I ran into a deck running not only Thanos, but also Galactus. What the fuck, man?

    I played a surfer move deck for the location. Seemed pretty good. Kraven was super good into Asteroid M, quite often becoming 12-16 power.

    I did the same, and yeah it was fun. Too bad it was over before I got more than a few games in.

    Sucks all the whiners obliterated the featured locations. I liked shaking up the meta for a few days.

    I felt like I was playing to the location and getting obliterated by people playing unchanged meta decks with this one. I think it will be a nice one just in the rotation at least

    Gah two bad back to back losses with a Galactus I somehow didn't see coming (I think I was stubbornly commited and see Nimrod so rarely I didn't put the pieces together), and my beloved Valkyrie betraying me when an opponent hit me with her to ruin my BP/Zola win.

    Dropping from 59.2 to 56.6 in a night feels real damn shitty. Can a guy just get some damn bots?

    I got a few games in with the sera hazmat deck and felt like I did a lot of barely winning by the narrowest margins but wow is a t6 hazmat great sometimes.

    On the flip side I beat a wong hazmat absorbing stack tonight playing generic thanos zoo.

    So now I don’t know who to trust

    I know conceptually that's how it's supposed to work. I've just never seen it actually happen :lol: . Good to see someone out there has, at least!

    I value my time more than the cube(s). I'd rather just play another game sooner if I'm gonna retreat.

    Retreating now after they've retreated later also doesn't lose cubes.
    I've only started seeing "the opponent retreated" when they retreat later this past season.

    Trying to hit your own Cerebros (and iron fist) with Valk at the same time as sniping Shuri's garbage.
    And getting as many multiple men as possible.

    And just lost 8 cubes to Thanos Galactus M'baku on the castle.

    Had a Sentinel there.
    And thought they thought I couldn't get rid of the stat boost location.

    Negative has felt very good lately. There's way less Leeching and Thanos overall for that matter and I think the matchup with Shuri is extremely advantaged for Negative.

    Do you roll a Shuri Negative or a more vanilla one?

    I think retreat later is cube negative because it rarely works, and even when it does, all the times it saved you cubes are offset by the times it did nothing but waste time, and if you added up that time you could have just played more games and won more cubes than you saved.

    I wish they'd add a UI element to the Retreat Later option letting you know that it worked. Any cube losses happen extremely quick on screen so you don't feel as bad, but it makes it easy to miss. Of course, cube wins are slower and more deliberate, making you feel better about wins.

    But yeah, add in something like "Dual Retreat!" to let both players know they didn't lose a cube.

    I do not consider myself a cruel man.


    But by God if I see a Shuri deck snap early and then faceplant hard you better believe they are getting a ms marvel and snap?

    I pulled the trigger on Thanos. Sadly I missed the free cubes from the pre nerf days. Any thoughts on solid builds for him? I’m guessing Ongoing Zoo builds or Lockjaw casino.

    If you play turn 3 Wave, turn 4 Sera, turn 5 Mystique does that reduce card cost by 2?
    Has anyone tried to make a deck around this? Maybe it's not worth it because you only can reduce cost to 1.
    I'm theory crafting because I just got Mystique as my free series 3 card. I don't have Wave though so I can't test it out.

    Yes, you’ll get a double discount. Not really worth it though since you’d probably want a second target for Mystique or risk her becoming a dead draw. And you’ll want more big cost things for Wave to hit, which gums up your deck.

    Usually the 1 energy discount is often enough if your deck is filled with 2-4 cost cards giving you 2-4 plays on the last turn. The tech cards like Killmonger, Shang Chi, etc are what let you bet the win.

    It would reduce cost by 2 - same thing as having both zabu and sera out where your 4 cost cards now cost 2; you could also psylocke on 3 to get sera out without giving your opponent the benefit of wave as well.

    Real issue you'll probably have is just putting out very little power on the board on 3/4/5 - so after getting all those cards to line up you'd need some kind of crazy combo or ways to pick off their cards; and like you've said they can't get reduced lower then 1

    Got it, figured that was the case. I've been playing mostly Sera control since I'm still in the mid 30s rank and it's the best I have. Picking up Mystique got me thinking about ways to tweak it.

    I consider both emotes to be rude and by and large the ones that are doing them most are decks running Galactus, Shuri, or Thanos.

    The only rude emotes are the Thumbs up and Thanos snap, everything else feels pretty innocent to me

    I lost to a guy because Hela decided to summon everything into one lane and he spammed so many Thumbs before I could leave I was like man, don't be so proud over getting lucky with RNG could've easily gone the other way

    I genuinely ask people to Snap with Snap? I can see how it could be read aggressively because well, it's implying you think you're gonna win. An after match, I lost and snapped and they didn't, and then they say "Snap?" Now that's toxic lol. I feel like as soon as the final turn starts emotes should be muted.
