    Onyxia's last stage has a flip ability that kills all the opposing Heroes instantly. I don't think I pointed that out earlier. It's obnoxious.

    And...what do you do about that? You just get to the last stage and die? Or is there some way to get around it?

    It cost 20 resources to pull off, so you have at bare minimum 20 turns.

    Did anyone hear about those guys that aced Onyxia at Gencon? THe amped up Onyxia at that. They left Onyxia with no resources and no damage on any heroes or allies. Pretty sick work.

    Yeah, they were the only ones to beat her at GenCon. Three Paladins. They won by healing her to keep her in stage 1 long enough to get their combo set up. Then, using Cruel Hand of Timmy, they destroyed all her resources. Pretty slick.

    that's awesome.

    yeah, stage 3 is a race to do 50 damage before the ony player builds up 20 resources, basically. it sounds fun.

    Bought the Onyxia Raid Deck, completely unawares that it wasn't stand-alone. And since that's all I could find (with my total of 5 minutes of looking), I'm going to return it and buy a starter deck.

    Long time lurker, enjoyed reading for ages and decided to post to tell you my tale of Xmas good fortune.

    Today my girlfriend and I bought the last 15 boosters in the store as an extra Xmas present to ourselves, bringing the total number of boosters we have bought to about 40. My dwarf paladin is now the proud owner of both the Landro fire tabard and the turtle mount. My girlfriend pulled the turtle from one of the boosters out of the one starter deck I got her, two days after the game was released :D

    The main reason I am posting, we now have a lot of swaps. If anyone in the UK (or anywhere in Europe I guess) fancies exchanging a few cards PM me and I'll send you a list. A few blues, lots of greens and a shitload of whites. We are only collecting one copy of each card so if you are looking to build playable decks we will probably have something to interest you.

    So I finally got to play a few games last night with my friend, and we came across a couple of rules questions.

    Is more than one copy of a card allowed out at a time, specifically allies? Also, when playing allies, do they come out exhausted, or can they just no attack/use abilities until your next turn (ignoring ferocity of course)?

    The presence of Ferocity (basically Haste straight out of MTG) suggests to me they can't be exhausted on their first turn out.

    I played a raid-built Human Pally deck vs a Shaman deck. Started off bad - the Shaman got me down to 1 health - and ended with me at full life and pretty much everything on his side of the board obliterated.

    I had fun.

    You can have as many copies of an all out at a time as you like, as long as its not Unique, which is mosty the higher ones, such as Thrall, Jaina and the like.

    When an ally comes into play, you may not use any abilities that require them to exhaust, and they may not attack. They are still able to protect however.

    If the ability just requires a cost and no exhausting, then you may use it the turn they come into play.

    Should be able to. As long as you are able to pay all the costs (IE, exhausting, paying resources, etc.), you can do an activated power as much as you want.

    Also, I hate you for pulling a Saltwater Snapjaw.

    I gave out some starter decks as Christmas gifts, and we're having a ton of fun with the game. I got a Shaman deck, and it mostly seems to revolve around exhausting opponents and keeping them exhausted for as long as possible. It's pretty fun, but I'm hoping I'll be able to try out some other heroes after I get a few booster packs.

    So here's a couple questions.

    There's a Horde ally, Voss Treebender, who can exhaust allies or heroes as he's attacking. Could you attack something with Voss and exhaust a protector before it's able to exhaust itself to protect the thing Voss is targeting?

    Also, there's another ally, Bala Silentblade, who gains attack power when she attacks an exhausted ally or hero. If she's attacking something, and another ally or hero comes in to protect it, does that protector count as exhausted in terms of the attack power boost, since it had to exhaust itself to protect?

    To your first one, yes, you can exhaust a protector with Voss to prevent it from being able to protect.

    And yes, for Bala as long at whatever she is attacking is exhausted, she will get the +3 attack.

    So I finally got to use the Onyxia deck against Angelshade113, my roommate and my roommate's girlfriend. I won after they got me down to 6 health, but I wasn't going all out or they probably wouldn't have made it that far.

    The highlight was when I pulled all 20 whelps out on one turn.

    As a side note, how exactly does combat work? Does someone propose a combat between one ally/hero to another ally/hero, finish that combat, then do another if wanted, or is it only once per turn?

    You can have as many combats as you want provided there are eligible attackers and defenders.

    I got an Onyxia deck as a gift and I can't wait to try it out. Unfortunately I've only got two friends nearby who play the game, so I'm actively campaigning to get the rest to start playing so I can beat the crap out of them.

    actually got to play the Onyxia deck, its fucking awesome.

    the first round they got me to 12, that was vs. two people...

    the next round, after i knew what i was doing, 3 people never even got me to stage 3.


    my question though is, does onyxia have any direct physical attack? she has the +1 and cards that bump it up like +5 or even + whatever stage your on, does that just get added to everything else?

    because we figured its not very fair if you were to use like +7 with a deep breath.

    Her attack is equal to the current stage + any abilities that are adding attack.

    So her very first turn she has 1 Attack, unless you have a way to add more to it.

    decklists lol

    The warrior deck looks ok, although I think you have maybe one or two more weapons than you need. I'd say either take out the Hand of Timmy or the Krol Blade, or possibly both, and put other cards in. You have a decent number of quests, although you may want a couple zapped giants in if you have any.

    You don't really have enough allies to make Besh'iah that useful as far as ability removal goes, so I'd recommend replacing her with Confessor Mildred since that'll be more effective ability removal. Bala Silentblade is a really mediocre ally from my experience, so I'd say throw another Confessor in for her. Since your hero is pretty strong and should have good armor, you probably don't need the Kulan Earthguards unless you have other allies you want to protect, so either take them out or put in something strong but fragile like Vaerik Proudhoof (5/3 for 4) or Jin'lak Nightfang (3/1 for 2 with anti-protection ability). Hierophant Caydiem could also really help if you can get any.

    As far as the druid deck goes, it looks pretty good, although your ally pool is pretty inconsistent. You can heal yourself pretty well, so don't worry too much about protectors and throw in more allies to beat the hell out of your opponent, since you've got plenty of ways to buff them up.

    Switched out a Blueleaf Tubers for a Zapped Giants, since I don't foresee needing to reshuffle my graveyard that much. Replaced the allies you suggested with 2 Confessors, Jin'lak and Caydiem. Didn't have any others that you mentioned. Also switched the Krol Blade out for another Execute, and replaced one of the Annihilators with a Lionheart Helm.

    As for Druid allies..I've got a Lhurg Venomblade, another Kena Shadowbrand and 3 Hannah the Unstoppables that I'm considering. Should I add another Parvink? And how is Wilba in practice?

    EDIT: Took out Crazy Igvand and the Barleybeard dude, replaced with another Kena and Lhurg. Still trying to figure out how to fit 3 Hannah's and maybe Wilba in.

    I haven't really tried out Wilba, so I don't really know how good she is in practice. It might be a good sideboard card against a deck that relies on big allies, but I can't imagine it being good against, say, Hunter weenie decks or Mage control decks.

    Right now I've got a fairly decent Shaman deck, although it's a bit too light on equipment right now, especially armor, and I don't have some abilities I'd like eventually like Rockbiter Weapon and Windfury Totem. It also doesn't have much drawing power, which I'm not sure how to fix beyond just adding more quests:

    Equipment:
    1x Annilhilator
    1x The Shatterer
    2x Iceblade Hacker
    1x Draconian Deflector

    Allies:

    1x Healing Stream Totem

    2x It's a Secret to Everybody
    2x Kibler's Exotic Pets
    1x Zapped Giants
    2x Princess Trapped

    I also made an Alliance Priest deck the other day, although it's still pretty rough and at this point mostly is about outlasting the opponent rather than killing anything effectively:

    Equipment:
    1x Hammer of Grace

    Allies:
    2x Warden Tonarin
    4x Latro Abiectus
    2x Kena Shadowbrand

    2x Heal
    4x Dispel Magic

    Okay, question.

    now that it's been out for a month, how hard is it to find the Onyxia raid deck?

    I looked online, and 1 of the auctions was for just the deck's box, and the other was for the deck sans loot/treasure cards. Both seemed like shitty deals.

    I unfortunately don't know where my local gaming shop is (Normal, IL), so I can't go hunting. =(

    They still have the Onyxia set in every gaming shop I've been in in the UK. It's Heroes of Azeroth boosters that are still proving hard to come by.

    If you're really stuck I'd be happy to ship one over to you providing you cover the costs but I'm sure you can find one in the US much much cheaper.

    it is getting rather hard to find, but they are out there.

    a lot of GS/EB's don't really sell CCG stuff very well so anything they get in they kinda put to the side, so its worth checking.

    Well, the stores up in Rockford didn't even carry the game. Luckily, 1 of the 2 EB's here in Bloomington/Normal does, but they were sold out of the Ony raid pack.

    I went and gave plasma today. Since it's been over 6 months since my last donation, I had to have another physical, but they paid me $40 instead of the normal $30. So I went and bought 9 packs*.

    I pulled a Landro Longshot; if only they were still going for their original prices.







    *This was my idea from the start. I figured, why not go lounge around for a few hours to get some money and buy some packs with that, instead of using the money I actually worked for.

    Argh. Sometimes I really hate my luck. I had a $45 giftcard to a Hobbytown USA, and since he didn't have any Shadowrun books to order in, I bought 3 starter packs for $15 each, which is the cheapest I've found. Incidentally, boosters are $5.29 each there.

    So what 3 did I get? Moonshadow, Ta'zo, and Warrax.

    I already had Moonshadow after trading with Angelshade, who I gave my Ta'zo starter to. And I have a Gorebelly deck already.

    Sure, I've got a few more helpful cards, but I would've prefered a deck I didn't already have. And the kicker is that 3 of the boosters had the same 12 cards, with a couple of uncommons and the rares being different.

    At least I got a Headmaster's Charge.

    If you want to get specific preconstructed decks for different classes, http://www.starcitywow.com sells them separate from the actual starter deck for 6-9 bucks each (although the Hunter one is $13 :roll: ).

    On another note, anyone looking to trade Oversized cards?
