I just played a game against a Songhai arcanyst deck and lost turn 4 and I feel the only possible way to survive past turn 4 would to have drawn a lightbender, and even then it would have only bought me maybe one or two more turns tops.
The game went like this, turn one, they play a Chakri Avatar after moving closer to the lower mana font and pass, I play Sarlac the Eternal. Turn two they play an Owl Beast Sage after taking the lower font hit Sarlac with the Avatar before playing Inner Focus on it, giving the Avatar +1/+3 because of the Sage, and then they move it back out of harms way, I take the middle font and play a Reaper of the Nine Moons, hit his Sage with Sarlac and pass. Turn 3 they play a second Chakri Avatar, Bloodrage Mask, and then MistDragon Seal on the old Avatar to take the top font, and then uses Blink to move it next to my general and attack with that for 5 the Sage for 4 and his General for another 2 and then pass, on my turn I attack his weaker Chakri Avatar with my Reaper, the Reaper pops out a Four Winds Magi, I then play Void Pulse, attack the weaker yet still alive Avatar with my Sarlac, Abysal Scar my own Sarlac because nothing else has one health and then play Consuming Rebirth on Sarlac putting us both to 18 thanks to the Magi, and on turn 4 they play Juxtaposition and Phoenix fire my face before killing me with their super buff minions, a 7/17 Avatar, a 5/6 Avatar, a 4/11 Sage and his general at 2/18 (before counter attack Damage)
I haven’t played nearly as much of this game as I would have liked to (part of me asking if it’s too strong instead of just trying to proposing a nerf) so I would very much like to hear peoples opinions on this since I don’t have as much experience in the game as many others, did my opponent just get the unbeatable god hand? Did I play poorly, or just not get the right cards to live? or is Chakri Avatar just a bit too strong? Mind you the only duplicates my opponent needed play was a second Chakri Avatar.
