Yoooooo sand traps are THE shit man! People say they suck, but I can stick a makantor in the corner and copy it over and over again with mirage master xD
Exactly! I've used it to hilarious effect with Repulsor Beast to deal with Provokes, Dying Wishes and other super nasty effects that simple dispel or whack-a-mole won't answer. Aymara Healers I don't have, so I have to have something to answer it if my opponent plays it. Ta'dah!
There are plenty of nasty Dying Wish effects that you really need to remove, but can't exactly remove. Displace the threat then!
On other news, let's discuss (that seems to be a prevalent phrase these days!) Psychic Conduit:
DAY IN THE LIFE OF A MAGNETIZED GOLEM
...and how Gauntlet is the best thing.
I did a round of Gauntlet yesterday, and I usually go 1/3 in them. This time I took Lyonar (so no funny and purry Vetruvian stories this time folks), and upped on healing and that owlbeast arcanyst - with a singleton magnetize and DRAGONBONE GOLEM. The golem is a new personal meme favorite. It. Wrecked. Face. It gave me 5 or 6 of my wins, and to my continued surprise I found myself 11/1 before submitting to two super tight and awesome games.
Probably my best night with Duelyst this far. Gauntlet has the best peeps, and thanks again to those that friended me yesterday, observed my run and kept on chatting and cheering me on. After the start of the week that I had IRL, that was a blast.
Onward to the point:
I was forced to submit to the force that is Sajj while 11/2, her left at 1 health, but as a reward I got not one, but two copies of Psychic Conduit. Wee, awesome! More Vetruvian stuff!
But it seems really, really bad.
So bad that I thought of rather using Bone Swarm.
So, instead of just stomping on it, are there any meta specific threats it could be catered to?
- Any 2/X minions with Dying Wish played presently that would love to die on MY account, not on theirs?
- Any reason to build up a board, taking control of a minion and summoning something like Provoke on their backlines? If yes, wouldn't you just use Airdrop for that instead of 3M spells...
- Combos to sacrifice controlled minions for a benefit? Abyssian loves those, but I don't think the Empire has anything.
- Combo it off with Hexblade? For... no reason whatsoever.
For removal Blood of Air is just better, for burst damage Rasha's is just better, for surprise summons Planar Scout is just better, for plenty of things anything with a mana cost LESS than 3 seems better.
But have I missed something? Time to put on the thinking hats!
