Church of the Mankantor (State of Magmar thread 10-21-2017) Ragnora the Relentless
This is a MAGMAR thread,It is bias towards Magmar issues.This thread isn’t about the overall health of game but overall health of one faction.Some of the views will lean towards complaining about faction that you might view in good health or strong but if you can’t communicate constructively those feelings please go else where seriously go start your own thread. We are trying to talk about the root issues with faction even if they are in good shape.
No long introduction needed.
OMG Eggmar support
So lets get to cool stuff the combos
- Ragnoras BBS + Lava Lance
Lava Lance will probably replace natural selection as the early removal tool in Ragnora. 2 mana to do 4 damage is pretty solid.
- Ragnora BBS + Wild Interceptor & Egg Morph
We don’t know what Ripper is but if it is good.This 5 mana combo is going to become a thing
- Ragnora BBS + Morin Khur
This is most important play for eggmar. Morin Khur is the scariest tool in eggmar. The two biggest omg plays can happen turn 6 after Morin Khur which is Chrysalis burst and Flash Juggernaut . If Magmar can play Morin Khur then all kinds of fun stuff can happen.
- Ragnora BBS + Dreadnaught
There is one rule in Magmar, Always play Warbeast and that will always probably be true BUT if Dreadnaught + BSS is a good play.Then you might see something like Flash reincarnation+ Dreadnaught+ BBS. 5 mana play two decently sticky minions.
- Ragnora BBS + Flaming Stampede
9 mana barbecue the board and leave egg in play. People like to say Flaming Stampede is bad but the truth is flaming stampede is slow. Now slow is bad in a lot of cases but when games are actually slow enough Flaming stampede can crush souls. I doubt the game will get slow enough but it is fun to think about.
List of Egg Synergy cards
3. Egg Morph
5. Valknu’s Seal
6. Wild Interceptor
8. Chrysalis Burst
10. Silithar Elder
13. Flaming Stampede
People don’t seem to understand that Grow and Egg synergy are two most supported group of cards neither of them work in the standard metagame that is like Creep and Wraithling not working in Abyss
So what else does Eggmar need?
Two thing stand out in my mind.One is egg synergy based card draw or value generator ei Desolator or Circlus. The other thing is deck with nothing but rebirth minions another 2 drop, 3 drop and maybe 4 drop egg minions would be helpful but i think Rag’s bbs makes that less of a need.
Are you happy that Egg synergy is finally being supported? What kind of cards are hoping they make? Give your ideas if you have any.
What you think about the design of Ragnora do you think that it fits the Magmar theme well?
Do you think that Ragnora will be competitive general? Do what do you think Ripper will be?
Any other Magmar related questions,concerns,ideas or decks are free to be talked about in this thread.
