View Full Version : Poll: Best Card, Favorite Card, Hate Card

06-25-2013, 10:46 PM
So as sort of an informal poll, I'm curious what are everyone's:

1) Best Card - the card you feel is the best in the set (so far)

2) Favorite Card - The card you like (irrespective of how good it is)

3) Hate Card- the card you would hate if your opponent played against you

I figured it might be a fun forum type game we could participate in. I'll start:

1) Best Card - Vampire King

http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/img/cards/medium/GnzCowa.jpg (http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/card.php?c=87)

Going through all of the spoiled cards, factoring costs versus power, Vampire King I feel has by far the most power just by being himself - flight, decent stats, an amazing power that is a card advantage machine, and also (which hasn't been mentioned on most fansites) graveyard denial - the troops that die transform and come work for you.

It does so many things for only 4 cost, its hard to say there is any better card spoiled so far.

2) Favorite Card - Archmage Wrenlocke

I love cards that let me draw cards and cards that let me play cards cheaper. His picture is also really freaking sweet.

3) Hate Card - Murder

Nothing says combo buzzkill like instant speed troop destruction.

Best: Vampire King - Just awesome Card Advantage, especially if the trigger stacks above Extinction.
Favorite: Omen of Oblivion - No as good as I thought, but I still love it. 1 mana and a card to see your answers and take one? Yes, please. Much more promising in PvE when you can use it on yourself.
Hate: Ascetic Aspirant - I don't know why, but I just hate everything about him.

Best: Lady Cassandra - Socketable Major, with Spellshield AND Swiftstrike that also gives you +0/+3 for 4! What?!
Favorite: Lady Cassandra - She exemplifies what PvE should be.
Hate: Lady Cassandra - She isn't PvP and she would suck if she were.

Best Card

Argus, Herald of Doom


Love it, puts a clock on the game and occupies your opponents thoughts if you reveal from opening hand. Will they counter your vampire king etc when they know this could come down next.

Favourite Card

Princess Victoria


She's hot for starters. Also Can see myself building an inspire deck and this seems like a good starting point.

Hate card

Zombie Plague


This could rip through a lot of decks. I'll love using it myself, but being on the receiving end could reduce a man to tears. Could see a lot of troop light decks because of this card.

(apologies for small images, click for big versions. I'm a bit new to forum activity)

@Vomitlord - My op seems so large in comparison, small pics might be better :)

I too like Princess Victoria quite a bit and want to build a deck with her and one of my other favorites (Blessing the Fallen (http://hextcg.gamepedia.com/Blessing_the_Fallen)).

Best card: Eurig the Robomancer
http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/img/cards/medium/Ou78mkv.jpg (http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/card.php?c=73)

Sure, he needs you to build your deck around him, but you get rewarded handsomely for doing so. There aren't many big troops spoiled yet, and Eurig has the potential to dwarf everything else for "only" 7 mana, plus if he doesn't die immediately, you at least get a Warbot out of the deal.

Favorite Card: Shrine of Prosperity
http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/img/cards/medium/KhVcvmk.jpg (http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/card.php?c=83)

I don't know how good this card will end up being, but it seems like there could be some sweet value, and I'm excited to try.

Hated Card: Omen of Oblivion
http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/img/cards/medium/5g5xkG0.jpg (http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/card.php?c=191)

This card is not good, but seems to have deceived a lot of people into thinking it is. It is just a very bad Cranial Extraction (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=80281), and I don't understand why anyone would play it. I guess I might be relieved if my opponent wastes a card and a resource to play it, but I would rather my opponents make good decisions ;)

Best Card: I'm going to have to say Vampire King, too. I wanted to be a trend setter, but it really is a damn good card.
Favorite Card: Head Games - love the idea, love its potential use, love the game within a game.
Hate Card: Eye of Creation - I just feel like that thing is going to be a pain in the butt.

Best Card: Obviously Warlock Inquisitor
Favorite Card: Again Warlock Inquisitor
Hate Card: Uh let me think.... Atrophy Because it kills my Warlock Inquisitors

Best Card: Ascetic Aspirant. He will be in tourney play, and he will dominate.
Favorite Card: Zombie Plague. I THINK I can get it to work in a tourney deck. I most certainly will try...but I'm not sure
Hate Card: Vampire King. Don't know why, but he makes me grumpy.

Best Card:http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/img/dl_cards/DkGgwqb.jpg (http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/card.php?c=15)

Card is just so versatile even beyond a Shin'hare deck. 2 cost for 3 units on turn two. Chump blockers, Sacrificials.

Favorite Card: http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/img/dl_cards/LwkaqCg.jpg (http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/card.php?c=54)

All around I think the Socket cards are the best cards in the game. They allow you to fill Gaps in your deck. This one in particular due to its ability and the synergy it provides with certain gems.

Hate Card: Tie between

http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/img/dl_cards/om0DCLp.jpg (http://hex.potion-of-wit.com/card.php?c=76)

Two strong flyers with effects that last for more than one turn. Game changing/ending cards.

Some interesting resposnes so far: Phoenix Guard Aeronaut the more I think about it, the more annoying he would be if I ran a deck without removal. Also, Armies really likes Warlock Inquisitor.
