I don’t know if this topic would be better listed in the Abyssian category or the Introduction category, this topic is a little bit of both. Basically I made this so you guys can give me pointers to improve more efficiently while also presenting myself. It’s a lot easier to grasp the meta, understand how to behave in a match and build with the help of more experienced players, so I’m here, you guys can show me the road ! And maybe we can talk about other stuff too along the road.
I started last month with the Humble Bumdle stuff, but I knew Duelyst for a very long time, it always looked intriguing to me but I never had enough interest to pick up the game and play. This is the very first time I’m playing a card game, unless you count Yu-Gi-Oh money matches with illegal cards in the projects. I played quite a bit during October, enough to get to Silver (I forgot the rank). Generally I’ve been doing fine, I didn’t bother to calculate my win rate or anything but I’ve been handling myself pretty well so far. Like I said, one of the reasons I created this topic is so you guys can point me to the “right” direction, some tips on the cards I should get and be wary of, stuff like that. Literally any advice is appreciated as long as it’s useful. I know this is very obtuse but I would really like to hear what you guys have to say, I’m all ears. I guess this is the part where I post my deck ? I only have one, I literally disenchanted EVERY card from every other faction except Abyssian just so I could work on my Lilithe build. I like Lilithe a lot, I played all the generals but I gotta say Lilithe is by far my favorite one. Once I completely get the grasp of Lilithe and the Abyssian faction in general (I think Cassyva is pretty cool too) I will try out other factions, because I do like other Generals but I’m kinda on the budget here so I don’t think it would be ideal to balance out two different factions when I’m trying to get familiarized with the game and resources are scarce. But anyway, here it goes !
I’m new, I haven’t seen much of the game, I haven’t seen many decks, this probably looks very standard and boring but I like this style. Swarm Abyssian is so fun to me. I guess my deck can be pretty weak to Skorn ? I’ve faced two Skorns so far. The first time I had a Bloodmoon Priestess and a Shadowdancer on the board so that didn’t work out very well for the oponent. The second time it cleared a good part of my board and prevented me from getting lethal on the opponent, ended up losing that one. Right now Skorn isn’t much of an issue to me but I’m sure it’s gonna become very problematic as I get higher in the rankings. When that happens and Skorn becomes suffocating enough for me I will adjust the deck accordingly, because I don’t know exactly what would be the best option and I feel like it’s not worth to stress too much over it when it’s not that common in the stage I’m at right now. Same goes to any other card that could potentially be extremely problematic for this specific deck. And again, the deck has been working pretty well in Silver, I watch a lot of my replays and most of the matches I lost I could recognize the mistakes I’ve made, it’s just a matter of experience at this point I would say. And uuuh, yeah, I guess that’s pretty much it. Feel free to say something. Anything. You can roast me or my deck all you want I won’t be mad, I’m very laid back and apathetic so it’s very hard to see me catching feelings and stuff. You can go in on me, as long as you have anything for me to get better, I will be satisfied. Basically there’s three layers to this topic.
- Introducing myself to you guys and say hello. Hi.
- Where should I go from here, basically what cards should I aim to get, what cards I should be worried about, other styles I should consider etc. etc.
- How does my deck look right now.
Yeah that’s it I think. I know this is super all over the place, I’m very bad when it comes to this stuff but I hope I can get along with y’all. I like music a lot, especially hip-hop. Girls are awesome. Also love fighting games. And RPGs. Occasional anime/manga is nice as well. Hi again.
