While art is subjective, I think I can objectively say that Hex has the highest quality of art on the whole. So many stunning arts, it is almost overwhelming.

This one is likely to be a priority pick due to its ability to slow down vennen (assuming draft vennen can fill a deck with spiders, anything to slow them down will be a huge deal.)

And it is damn good in it's own right. I think constructed playable, first-pick worthy in limited.

Rycajo

Yes, I saw that post on reddit back in January. It's a neat idea, and maybe even was intentional, except for the fact that the person in question was eaten when Hannibal was not incarcerated or on meds (it was a census-taker, which means Lecter was his "normal" psychiatrist self at the time the alleged consumption would have taken place). Probably the reason "nobody" knew about the joke for 20 years is that it was too obscure due to inaccuracy of timing.

Dreamstoke Mystic: Amazing card. Being able to manipulate Prophecy RNG is something that was really needed. Even just cycling your deck is crazy powerful - really surprised this is not a rare..heck it could have been a legendary and I wouldn't have batted an eye.

Merciless Culler: I guess the Shin'hare being sweet little rabbits who like to torture in a cute way image goes out the door with this one. Sacrifice troop effects are nice to deal with non-interactive troops that are invincible/spellshielded so glad to see them make it into the game.

Rythmic Spiritualist: I'm still one the fence about this whole pumping cards in your deck thing and how powerful that is (definitely becoming more powerful strategy with cards like Dreamstoke Mystic), but really can't complain at that 3/4 body for 3.

ossuary
05-27-2015, 04:18 PM

It depends on the wording of the card. If the card says to "put" something into your deck (Escalation), then just the cards being affected by the power go into your deck in a random place - the rest of the cards in your deck stay in their existing order. If the card says to "shuffle" something into your deck (Eye of Creation), then the cards being affected by the power AND your entire deck get shuffled together - so all cards end up randomized.

I cannot wait for Gorefeast to rotate out. Easily the most frustrating archetype for me (I hate to play against it, it is boring to pilot, hard to reliably counter while still being relevant to the rest of the meta), and it is the longest surviving, most played deck (we are talking total, not recent tourneys) that can still survive in the meta.

It needs to disappear, yet todays new elves just scream 'more gorefeast!' *shudder*

If they're strong enough, gas troll and friends could become a thing. Of course, that'd just mean the return of extinction meta, but depending on the strength, they might be able to play around it. Doesn't take much to make Gas Troll a threat on his own.

So you don't think that t2 swing, drop multiple brawlers, t3 win isn't crazy good for Gorefeast? Plus multiples swinging allows you to keep up resources for verdict, etc.

I can't see Gorefeast not wanting something like that.

ossuary
05-29-2015, 08:46 PM
Yeah, a reliable T3 Cinder in mono-ruby is where my mind was too, and would be pretty nuts for a rush deck. From that point on, you just throw guys at the opponent until they're dead. Things like that could make constant removal way more necessary than most people currently treat it.

Plus once you use the 2 resource guy to get your arcane cinder out, you can just kill him off on purpose to replace him with a cinder knight with the same attack value, and prevent your opponent from getting the extra resources.

Ooh; fun cards!
Individually they look solid, if not jaw-dropping... but it looks like Vennen are all-in on the Spiders & "when deal damage" effects; I suspect there's a lot of synergy at play with these in PvE (/constructed maybe).

Double synergy really; we've seen Vennen synergies and we've seen Spider synergies, so cards with both have double the potential!

Not sure how - being a dyed-in-the-wool good race player - I've ended up playing Dwarves in PvE & getting hyped for Vennen in set 3. :rolleyes:
Possibly an Underworld guild lies in my future!

Gotcha.

The true horror: Xarlox encounter updated for set 3.

I remember the proving ground AI got set 2 cards added to them.

I think that may end up even weaker, overall, but more consistent at the same time. And thats a good thing - less of the 'he got stuck at 2, haha' and less of the 'oh crud, chained terrorantulas' would be nice.

The unblockable squishies would also make the wincon more focused.

Eeeh seriously doubt they'd cut any of the Word of Xenu's or Chronic Madnessnesses. Why, I bet they're licking the tears coming out of their monitors from my 400 g* arena run.

At least, I would if I were in their position.

I wonder which cards from this set are going to get AA?

I'm hoping Hatchery Cultivator is one of em.
The art on it is good, but its not really doing anything for me.

Though there is Runeweb Infiltrator and Exarch of the Egg so I guess I shouldn't get too greedy.

I hope all the Vennen cards get AA. I would play both versions in my deck, more spiderlove!

I wasn't sure what race I liked best, but seems I'm siding with the Vennen. Those spiders are really adorable!

I have to agree! I didn't really like the Vennen in the first 2 sets, but they start to look really fun and unique!

A bit interesting that the Vennen seem to be getting a soft counter against board sweepers, and cards like Chronic Madness and mill in general will be getting double value with them. Extinction or Heat Wave all you want, but all it takes is you hitting a pocket of eggs or your opponent playing a mill card and their side is full of spiders again.

Patrigan

a pocket of eggs

We call this an egg sac. I henceforth declare the following sentence to be used when you lose due to the opponent getting many spiderlings at once:

"I got egg sac-ed."

Although it's important to note that playing against any deck with Blood, the opponent can sweep all your spiders away for just the cost of 1 card (the shroomkin bomb!) and 1 troop. Strength of numbers are not necessarily a safe defense against their retaliation on any given turn. Don't be complacent!

True, but that would mean they're sacrificing some of their turns and their own troops just to deal with small swarms of cheap/free spiders every so often. That would allow the Vennen players time to either restock their opponent with more eggs, mill for already set eggs, or draw and put out more powerful troops of their own.

I'm starting to see why the Coyote tribal is looking so strong now. They have to swing and win quick against the Vennen because prolonged matches suit the Vennen more.

Wonder if the Allegiance ability stacks, if it does, Vivisector seems like an auto 4 of in any Vennon egg deck. Mainly because the Allegiance works in hand.

Edited to add: Amazing art, loving it!

Allegiance only checks yes or no, not how many. This card will either bury 3 cards or 0 cards.

Art is amazing. Looks like a decent limited card. 3 card bury on a decent body isn't terrible in draft.

With 2 Vivisectors in hand, every Vennon that enters play under hero's control, mills 6 cards with no resource cost or threshold requirment. Pretty strong. I guess it's cost is it takes up a card in your deck and a slot in hand, because I don't see myself actually casting him too often in constructed.

No. Vivisectors works only if enters play.

That seems too strong, I must be misunderstanding the ability, allegiance must only work when the card with allegiance is in play. Hard to tell with this new digital space stuff.

It only triggers if you have a Vennon on the field when you play him.
It does not stack, or trigger multiple times regardless of how many Vennen you control.

EDIT: That said he is a really nice follow up to a T4 Azurefate sorceress with a Mill gem in it.

I know I'm late to the party but I just wanted to mention that Merciless Culler is the greatest thing ever, everything about it is fantastic, not the least of which is the fact its common so I might actually be able to get my hands on some. From both an artistic, and flavor perspective, I've always preferred wild wabbits, but from a gameplay perspective I'm all about the blood bunnies, and Merciless Culler pretty much encapsulates why in a single card. Powerful, versatile, and featuring tremendous synergy with the core concept of blood bunnies of sacrificing expendable troops to do cool stuff. This card will be finding its way into a LOT of my decks.
