The Ancient Bonds expansion has been out for just a few days now, so I decided to launch this topic so people could discuss the cards, and the state of our fledgling meta.
As of right now, I’m rather impressed with the expansion as it stands in terms of fun and interactive gameplay. Nearly every game I’ve played has been a long and drawn out one, which is awesome. Slower games are in my opinion much more entertaining and tactical then a binkers bonkers aggro one.
Some initial card opinions:
EMP: I was not looking forward to this thing existing, but due to the effect being symmetrical, its more of a game reset than an annoying finisher. I ended up finding it as a fun card to play with AND against.
Juggernaut: About as powerful as people expected. Played on turn 8 it’s by no means a game-ender, but when ramped out on 6 or earlier… you have to have a silence/destroy, AND the means to kill a few eggs if you don’t want to lose the game on the spot.
Sirocco: I can’t really tell yet if this card is good per-say, but it is certainly a blast to play with. It mimics a few bigger answer-or-die drops, but easier to answer and less of a “die next turn”, which, at only 5 mana, is fair.
Those are just a few of my impressions on our new expansion. I’d love to hear what others in the community think!
