Honestly, I’m just trying to get a Balance plan to work… Vandy is there for the early game pressure, Zane for the haste.

In Codex I find that the player brings far more variance to the game then the Codex they have, so even if I’ve played against the codex (and been thrashed into the ground by it) and played it (and had no success what so ever :stuck_out_tongue: ) how you play it will be very different and from my end it will feel different.

Plus its still new to you, which is the fun bit :stuck_out_tongue:

A Seer is likely to drop next. Add Battlesuits and Nullcraft, and I guess Shadow could get a kill on Vandy, but no free lvls.
I’m getting a HH to threaten Zane, and planning to tech up next turn.

Betting on Seer was obviously a mistake… Now I have to delay tech 2 just to keep up on board. The real problem with that is it doesn’t leave me with great teching options. I suppose going all in on CoL is still viable?

I might be setting Shadow up for maxband Garth next turn, but at least I’ll keep TB to get a kill. Also looks like I might get maxband Vandy soon, so why not tech a Meta?

Is it just me, or is this game moving reeeaaally slowly?
I’ve kind of lost sight of my own plan here… Teching a Dark Pact to help me cycle through my immense deck, in search of… Meta, I guess?


#11

I’m pretty sure my technician is still alive here, he his a 3/1 flier with +2/+2 and 1 point of damage, making him a 5/2 in my view?


#12

I thought the Feather Rune overrides that because it was applied later. The bonus from Vandy’s maxband isn’t like a + rune that’s “independent” of the card, right?


#13

From the Codex DB

Fairie Dragon only changes the “base” ATK and health of those units; runes and other effects can add or subtract ATK or health. — Sirlin, 03/19/16

Its is best to picture it as you literally taking a pen and changing the card text + stats. Buffs etc still apply.

There is a full run through of how the game applies changes to card effects in the rules thread, the second post has it stickied.


#14

Got it, thanks!

In that case I’ll fetch a Wandering Mimic instead of Fairie Dragon to hastily kill the technician. And Vandy patrols instead of attacking, so you get to keep the skeleton. I’ll edit it in.


#15

My ability to pay for workers is really starting to be painful…
