On Buffing and Nerfing and how it doesn’t fix the replace problem:
idk Mr.Dark, even if you point at Trinity Oath and say that it can’t be fixed by nerfs(which i disagree), you have to concede that a simple nerf to certain combos like ragnora CAN be fixed. buffs and nerfs aren’t the -ONE ALL BE ALL- solution, but it’s practically fixing half the problem, probably even more.
like see? it’s just one frikken word and it’s ok now.
On your Trinity Oath argument:
I don’t know about you, but i find this scenario too problematic.
First of all, decks that run trinity oath are decks that have low mana cost cards but always have long games (healyonar, strategos). they’re bound to run into trinity oath when the deck is so thin, and there are plenty of deck thinners like sun wisp and lifestream. replace or no replace, the chances of pulling trinity oath is inherently high.
Second, it’s hard to accept your claim that lyonar gets to replace into trin-oath too perfectly. I dont know about you, but I don’t watch replays of my games too often. MUCH less, adding my opponents as friends, then ACTUALLY accepting, watch their replay, and then confirm that they topdecked that trinity oath or makantor. I mean, you have to concede that any decent lyonar player would
- actually make their hand so very small only if they know they can replenish it.
- wouldn’t use trinity oath until it’s necessary (meaning they would replace their non-trinity oath card first, see if his hand has such a powerful swing that can turn things around, and if it it is not, use Trinity).
You have to reconsider that this is actually what’s been happening with you this whole time
see, it’s actually pretty easy to fix this for you:
“Draw 3 irreplaceable cards” Boom. The card risks bricking. And it’s what you wanted. Anti-replace cards. It’s something duelyst has to consider digging into and not limit the draw-design to Shidai’s spellsword.
I’m telling you darklord, it’s not that hard to tweak something. What’s hard though, is to convince the the community and the devs that this trinity oath nerf is even necessary in the first place.
