This is kinda personal…so dont take it too serious.Just my thoughts.
After over 900 lyonar victorys i thought that it may be a good idea to test out other factions myself …cant realy return to lyonar as mainfaction now…still fun from time to time but too simple to keep maining
They just feel so 1dimensional after having experienced the more complicated gameplay of other factions by playing those(ofcource with some exceptions…but those exceptions are not entire factions/generals but only certain archetypes).
Only zir,an has in my opinion nice combos ,minion-synergy and gameplay that is alright in terms of complexity…but shes too weak to be counted here(camp in a corner and let her be at 25hp unless she engages first and shes finished because lyonar has no lategame)
They have such potential…the slow yet powerfull empire,strongest near its allys and master of defense.Makes little sense than that their best decks are very aggresive…they would be ,in my opinion,much more fun as a defensive faction that lets the enemys come to them.
One idea to make that work :siege minions.These minions
-are extremely op relative to their manacost
-cannot be targeted by your spells(no aegis!)
-only have their effects nearby your general
-die immidiately if not on your half of the field
-get a massive additional effect if positioned on hallowed ground
To be relevant as a defensive lategame-focused faction lyonar would ofcource also need a real wincon OR powerfull transform removal…although that has to be carefully made. It should ofcource be situational…we dont want aggro argeon with effective transform-removal.
Im currently playing midrange songhai…strange that the supposed aggro-/outofhandburst -faction seems to perform better as a controlish-faction than lyonar
Whats your thought about lyonars current state?
This is not about powerlevel…the aggresive argeon decks are still doing alright.
