    Ack, darn, so close to a heart kill!
    (Honestly, not really, I only did about 550 and the deck was just missing SOMETHING to actually enable a heart kill. It scales way too hard for what I had)

    But it feels good to have gotten a solid A20 win again for the first time in too long~
    mywaj9rdug2z.png

    I might be curious to know if someone could manage a heart kill on that seed. ;P

    I'll see what I can do, oh you of the hint hint. Looks like it's mostly a scaling issue though - envenom would probably do it, catalyst might be enough, a second noxious fumes. Thousands cuts+ maybe? Seems a little slow for the deck. Same with shuriken. Maybe even just a second deadly poison and/or a bouncing flask

    Doing 550 is quite good though!

    I really think there should be a shrunken/kunai/ornamental fan but defect only and for focus.

    Maybe 'evoke three orbs, +1 focus' or 'play three powers, +1 focus'

    Eh ... Evoke 3 orbs would be super-duper win-more as a relic. Powers ... maybe, but it seems like it would be hugely unreliable and only get you a small bonus (you don't tend to get that many without some already generally game-winning card combinations).
    I'd like for more ways to get focus too, but I think it would still have to be kinda boring and just "play 3 attacks", but it still seems way too good with frost orbs. Focus scaling is very good, after all.

  • BurtletoyBurtletoy Registered User regular
    My thought was evoke three orbs is probably harder to do than three attacks

    But maybe people play defect differently than me

    Anyways, guess who just killed the transient on an all-for-one deck! But then died to the three black slime guys. Actually fought the black slimes twice, and took 88 damage in total against them. Which is, what the fuck. That fight is usually one of the easiest Act 3 fights

    Sometimes those fuckers just attack a lot. They can definitely be jerks sometimes.

    As far as evoking, it's more that orbs evoke automatically when they get pushed out, so a turn of Ball Lightning -> Glacier gets you a focus and 3 orbs that get empowered by it, plus you still block. That's not exactly hard to do. With Defect evoking 3 orbs and playing 3 attacks could easily be the same set of cards, actually ...

    It sure would up the value on Chaos+, Glacier, and Tempest, two of which could reasonably be buffed. It'd get very weird in Storm / Static Discharge combo situations though.

    The other problem is that Dex is a linear scaling option, str is mostly linear with some mulit options, while focus is inherently multiplicative (passive proc, evoke proc, *orb slots, *loop, *golden cables, *emotion chip). It's also pound for pound stronger than str/Dex.

    Heck, way back when defect released it had a card called allocate that let it loose. Str + Dex to gain focus.

    It was removed within a day, it was that broken.

    Okay, I've now proven I can kill the heart on A20.

    Admittedly, it's because I achieved Ultimate Power during Act 2 with Ironclad, but still! I can do it!

    You don't really need a decklist to understand what happened (frantically digging for Corruption and Barricade), but:

    Duvu doll, cursed key, and dark stone parapet, and you end the run with only two curses? And you built a barricade deck?


    ...I think we are playing very different games.

    ...I think we are playing very different games.

    The time is deceptive; I went to the grocery store and dropped my wife off somewhere in the middle.

    While doing so, I told her "You know, the only attack in there that matters anymore is Body Slam."

    I stand by the statement! You can see the remnants of my original "giant Fiend Fire w/ a bunch of strength from Curses," gameplan in there.

    E: Heart-fight highlight was building close to 800 block and then going "Oh crap, I don't have Barricade up yet."

    Crowdsourcing this one ...
    ie92stz3gzis.png

    The off-screen cards at the top are 2x defend and 2x strike.
    There's a mirror in this shop I can buy. Is there anything in this deck you would actually duplicate? I'm certainly flipping through a few in my head, but I wonder if someone would no-brainer anything or skip it?

    I would say Limit Break for faster scaling but I don’t actually see any +str cards in there

    Other than flex which I don’t really count

    Disarm+ is great card for the heart. It would be my choice.

  • ArcticLancerArcticLancer Best served chilled. Registered User regular
    It's a relatively thin deck with a bit of draw, Headbutt and Red Skull. Limit Break is absolutely on the table.

    Not that the deck didn't have problems, but it really sucked that I died because I forgot to use a weakness potion during a restart, and took fatal damage faster than I could realize my mistake. I might have been able to pull it off, but it would have been through some genuinely wacky RNG manipulation. Oh well.
    So, I think this run taught me that the heart self-cleanses when it gives itself artifact? It went from -9 strength to +2, and to the best of my knowledge it does not give itself +13 strength when it does its little power ups. :P

    It does indeed self cleanse. Every time it gains strength, it removs any negative str and then gains a set amount. Removing it's strength is still worth it as it slows the scaling, but past turn 15 it starts gaining impossible to block amounts, let alone remove

    If it's any consolation, I once watched jorbs give the heart ten strength via a very poorly timed dark shackles.

    Still! Chin up dood, that's a real sweet effort and real sweet deck. Looks like the only thing you're really missing is +maxhp to make face tanking a bit easier. (Runic Pyramid and dual wield would have also been sweet)

    Yeah, Max HP would have definitely been a boon. I actually took a starting bonus which cost +7, and the only recovery I got on that was a random Juice Potion. Definitely would have been preferable to get some more raise with a "put me to half so I can get started" engine.
    And yes, very much a fun deck. I was worried going into the shapes with ... I think about 25 health? But I actually came out of that fight with full health and did mostly the same to the time eater. Not a bad deck at all, just not a heart killer~

    I would like an option added to this game to save decks that kill the Heart, and allow you to do a run on any ascension level you have unlocked where you can’t get any upgrades/relics/etc. just to see how good the deck actually is.

    I think it might have made it vs the heart - though the main issue I can see is it's not great defensively other than 'i vampire back to Max hp'

    6431FF8BDFF95A4B85C315E57C19073AEE467EDB2-0 isn't much of a win streak but still technically a win streak.  One point of dexterity came off the Kunai, the rest was from double Speed Potion with Panacea, a Footwork, a Dexterity Potion, and an Oddly Smooth Stone. Sacrificed Ghost in a Jar on turn three to block the big hit since I couldn't luck into the Panacea that was at the bottom of the deck. Once I got the additional ten dexterity it was pretty easy from there on out. Only took damage playing Afterimages to start one of my turns and then was able to loop Blurs frequently enough that I didn't actually have to play block cards to block anymore.  Kind of interesting to point out that I went from okay at blocking to really bad at blocking after the Pandora's swap to extremely good at blocking.

    StS is offically out on the switch in the New Zealand eshop - it should be hitting or about to hit other regions.

    Meanwhile, i just lost a run by doing the math wrong against champ, because i wanted to save my ghost in the jar. Dammit

    Was a really interesting run too! I got a super early pocket watch, and then took hovering kite as my energy relic, because i figured what the hell, it's not like i care about loosing 2 cards when i can draw 8 every turn, right?

    Made for a very fun deck! I even skipped a kunai in favour of blue key, just because i looked at things and was like "So, how many times do i actually play 3 attacks?".

    That'll teach me to slip in a game before bed.
