[Tournament] Codex Asynchronous Winter Swiss - Round 8


#32

Just thought I would take the opportunity to mention how much I’m enjoying reading other people’s games in this tournament. The level of play is really high, and I’m seeing a lot of variation in the strategies being used - lots of really good games going late with a lot of back and forth!


#33

mdn1111 hasn’t responded or posted, so they are now officially dropped. Anyone paired against them has been given a BYE instead (and it does count as your normal tournament BYE).

@Mooseknuckles and @Shax haven’t started their Round 3 match yet - please message me before Wednesday with why that didn’t happen, or I’ll just call it an adjudicated loss.

I’ll post standings alongside the pairings starting in Round 4.

#37

imo new decks MVP so far are:
@Castanietzsche 's [Bashing]/balance/growth and @FrozenStorm’s [Blood]/Strength/Growth
they seem rlly interesting, and made me want to play them!


#38

Lol Casta has been on fire, me not so much :wink: Give this deck a try and see what you think, it’s a bit of a struggle early game for me!


#39

yet i find the red starter the best for early pressure, and hasted units dinosized are rlly scary! (exp those damn gliders!!!)


#40

Thanks for the heads-up. An MVP deck with Bashing makes me curious. Will check it out later!


#41

i have a list of players (ever growing) that i follow cuz i learn a lot from them! @Castanietzsche is one of them, and so @FrozenStorm


#42

Wow, and I’ve just noticed that he replaced Feral. I always thought of Bashing as the no-penalty Feral for multicoloring.
I suppose the kicker is Bashing Tech1s with Midori?


#43

yes. also neutral starter loves midbandori. Tederf becomes a 1 gold for 2/3 D: older bro 3/3 for 2 gold.
A bloomed maxbandori (he grows flowers in the beard) is a flyier that can kill a tech build per turn, damn him!


#44

From watching his games, yes. Midori is his go-to hero, buffing Tenderfoot and Older Brother, and then Iron Men later on. To me, it’s a study in why Midori was nerfed :stuck_out_tongue: I dread to think what it would be like if he was playing with pre-nerf Midori…


#45

pre nerf midori was imo absurd in such deck. tf costs 0, OB 1, iron man 2, hounds 0 and so flagb.
midbandori also would +2/+2 instead of 1/1. couple that with peace and cadets, and start crying, imo


#46

I actually really liked the look of @cstick’s deck (Demonology/Balance/Fire) - but I guess his results didn’t back it up too well…


#47

It did really well in RACE. I think he had tough match-ups this tournament.


#48

Thats the nature of Swiss, it can be unforgiving a bit.


#49

@Alhazard don’t forget to start your Round 5 game. @PointyFinger your Round 5 game has started.


#50

Need to start tonight. Been busy.
