Some nerf afterthoughts
Lavaslasher- We were wrong everybody thought that 4/7 was the right statline. With the hindsight of now playing it in meta.4/8 would have been the correct number which puts it at 4/5 more consistently than the 4/4 which it is at more often now. I mean it is fine at 4/7 but the sweet spot would have been 4/8. It is still a 3 of Magmar
Homeostatic Rebuke- The move 4 mana seems to be the right move the card is still strong but don’t seem as overbearing as it was before.The sad part once again Magmar lose a synergy piece .The card could have been combo with 6 cards mankantor and metamorphosis for real cool end of games combo. It is still 3 of but in certain decks
Side note( Dear CPG please stop taking away my metamorphosis combos. Okay Meta/Plasma was too strong.But Metamorphis Skorn or Rebuke.Can keep my full board clear at 9 mana please)
Saurian Finality - This one of is the most impactful one.Just because of how the game of Duelyst is played 7 mana is the endgame in duelyst. Games just flat out end at 7 mana alot so as good as Saurian Finality is it ironically gets taste of its own medicine. The card is a 3 of in deck specifically made for it and maybe 2 of or 1 of in other things.
Saurian Finality Vaath- Still a good deck nothing has really changed other than it is bit harder to play. Namely the hard part is the gap between 6-8 feels huge at times. Some Saurian decks use to play Adjudicator so the deck is very alive in that form.
I guess something like this still works.Maybe you play one less rebuke and finality for Silhouette Tracer or Armada something but Mid range shell is still solid and the cards weren’t hit that hard. Given time I think it shows back up again.
Saurian Finality Vaath took hit for Magmar so that people wouldn’t notice that Ragnora was kinda silly. So thank you Finality Vaath you the real MVP. Now Ragnora can get a extended look without some hurried nerf because community wants it pound of flesh. I watch a bunch of Tactialgmr stream today and he was playing Ragnora. It was a Sibon deck
It had none of the traditional “OP” Magmar cards except for Saurian Finality (which I replace with rebuke in this list) but No Mankantors,No Plasma Storm,No Natural Selection,No Lavaslasher, No Flash Reincarnation,etc. It is just a good ole combo deck in the faction that suppose to be boring on curve I just play powerful minions. So try it out is really good deck.
Side note: Yes I have hint that Ragnora is kinda OP,It doesn’t make too much sense to get upset over it because the rotation removes
2. Wild inceptor
3. Lava Lance
So unless CPG adds more in expansion Ragnora bbs will only have “ONE” Activator in Egg morph and that is really a big deal.
