Vaath the HERO we deserve


#21

Maybe you’re right, but I’m not ready to tinker with a working deck for a faction I never seriously played before.


#22

If the deck works I absolutely agree that it’s most probably the right card. I just can’t see it and that was the reason to ask.
A win has not more value if you win with 20 health left instead of 1 health left. So…
(Edit: If the healing is really needed I’d always ever play Mystic instead.)


#23

Had only one situation when my Herald was impossible to trade in to get NS work, though I agree on the countersynergy theoretically.


#24

Edited my post and the edit is meant “when playing NS” of course .


#25

(sry for slight off-topic): Mag has always been my “second faction” (although I still have only one ribbon). With no new expansion happening soon, the time is nearing when I’ll really start giving lizards the meme treatment :stuck_out_tongue: I think it’s no coincidence that often people who play a lot of Abyss enjoy Magmar as well, the factions maybe balance each other out nicely.


#26

Great that it is so successful for you and also brings you joy! What more do you want?

How did the claws work out for you?


#27

I want to know about the claws too @alplod


#28

@boronian, @panouil, claws are good at times to outaggro aggro, but I find scales more generally useful. Never managed to pull claws/ Drogon combo though.

Actually, some decks can’t recover from claws damage, and they’re quite good as a cheap finisher sometimes. All in all, 2 off seems enough.


#29

Interesting! Do you miss Flash for flashy (sorry for the pun!) combos? :slight_smile:


#30

Truly, your questions are confusing. You talk to me like I am an experienced Magmar player.

I don’t miss anything! I just go forward and smash, being happy like an infant :slight_smile:

Actually, I rarely use Drogon as a finisher. I just burst when I can. Drogon at 4 attack is enough for me, so I don’t think I miss flash. I’m generally not aiming for insane burst, I just try to consistently hit enemy with slowly increasing attack.

You may say that I play the deck in the same way I would play ArtiHai. Just chipping away until I teleport and finally win.


#31

Haha, fair enough :smiley:

That’s a solid game plan and I think a question of how you approach a deck like this. Flash can save you so often…Flash Makantor, Flash Drogon or Crypto for the big finisher but chipping away is a good idea especially with the 3 Tracers in the deck.


#32

But… Vaath isn’t exactly the General you want to chip away with, isn’t he?
Tracers are for chipping in not chipping away, or?


#33

Does chip mean half health of a general :thinking:?


#34

Well, attacking with 3-5 attack can probably be considered chipping away. At least in my world.


#35

Oh, and in my world I thought you mean “going infight” vs. “running away”, so… forget about what I said.

#36

Hmm, I kinda assumed that chip away is a phrasal verb meaning “break little parts from the whole”, but I could be wrong here.
