[XCAFS20] Round3: codexnewb [Future]/Peace/Truth vs EricF [Past]/Peace/Truth

@EricF

rules changes coming, then turn.

Purple Starter:

Time Spiral costs 0, and ability adjusted: “Add or remove a time rune from a card (or forecasted card) that you control”
Tinkerer also triggers on Arrival. “Arrives: or :exhaust:: Add or remove a time rune from a card (or forecasted card) that you control” //combined with the other changes, previous version was a bit too degenerate

Future:

Vir midband is range 4-6 (instead of 5-6)
Double Time Cost reduced to 5 and moves to forecast 2 (instead of forecast 3)
Knight of the Conclave is Forecast 2 (instead of 3), loses resist 1
Reaver’s ability becomes: “Arrives or :exhaust:: Trash a worker, or deal 6 damage to a Unit or Hero”. Cost reduced to 2

Peace:

General’s Hammer costs 2 (instead of 3)
Drill Sergeant’s gains “limit twice per turn” on it’s second ability (can only move 2 runes off of the DS each turn, same as Ancient)
Debilitator Alpha costs 4 (instead of 5) and has “As Patroller: Attackers get -1 ATK” (even if they aren’t attacking Debilitator Alpha)

Truth:

Spectral Tiger gains Resist 1
Spectral Roc gains Resist 1
Hallucination Changes to: Spell - Summon :target: Target up to 2 units or heroes. Summon a 0/X hallucination token for each target, where X is the current HP (factoring in any buffs, debuffs or damage) of the target. Destroy these at your next upkeep.
Dreamscape Instead of “all units are illusions” this becomes “Arrives or Upkeep: mark up to 5 units. These units are illusions until your next upkeep, even if Dreamscape is removed from play”. Also gains "Tap: Create a Mirror Illusion (max 2). Still channeling, still cost 3.
Quince Midband ability now costs 1 (instead of 2)
Mind Control Cost reduced to 4 and can attach to any unit, including tech 3s

Past:

Prynn midband becomes Dies:… (instead of “Dies from fading”)
Seer can only affect cards you control.

so, if i remember correctly, plasmodium definitely helps for purple on purple. probably need to rush tech 2, so keep things cheap.

interesting choice for tech 2 peace. guess it makes sense. the mox in elite makes this an easy choice. nullcraft to sideline mox, and break the tech 2.

trading the cadet is actually better here i think. tech a DS and KOTC to get peace engine going. 20% for FSG/DS->cadet, kotc, cadet. 40% for 2/3, 60% for 1, etc…

You just uhhh… battle suits is free now?

flagbearer and DS as next step.

let’s get plasmo out of here. he’s been useful enough.

rewind isn’t a threat just yet. but give it a turn, and it certainly will be.

break the garrison and ill be a step up here.

gg
Without a Garrison, my draw is useless, which means I’ll never be able to catch up.
