La fin d’une histoire…

19 février 2010

Il y a maintenant plusieurs mois que je travaille assidument sur ce blog, mais malheureusement, je crois qu’il est maintenant temps d’y mettre fin.

J’ai bien aimé discuter de Chaotic avec vous. Et je crois que j’aurais encore beaucoup de sujet à élaborer. Cependant, écrire un seul article me prend plusieurs heures en générale et j’ai plusieurs autres projets qui mérite mon attention.

Mon horaire est aussi très différent que lorsque j’ai débuté, ce qui me laisse encore moins de temps pour moi.

Mon dernier point est que, dû à la situation présente, je commence à perdre foi en ce jeu. Les nombreux retard de la nouvelle série, le manque de mise à jour sur les divers site et le fait que mes tournoi locaux ne sont plus sanctionner depuis le début de février me laisse croire que le jeu est en chute libre, ce qui n’aide pas à ma motivation.

Je vais continuer à jouer, car j’aime bien ce jeu, mais je vais réduire mon investissement dans celui-ci. Si jamais le jeu devait reprendre son envol, il est possible que je recommence à blogger.

Merci à vous mes très cher lecteurs, et si vous désaprovez mon gestes, dit le haut et fort dans les commentaires et peut-être que je changerai d’avis.

In the End…
 

It’s been several months that I started working  on this blog, but unfortunately, I believe that it is now time  to put a end to it.  I liked to discuss Chaotic with you,  and I believe that I still  have a lot of subjects to talk about.  Nevertheless, writing a single article usually takes me several hours and I have several other projects that deserves my attention.

My schedule is also very different then when I began, which leaves me again less than time for me.

My last point is that I am begin to lose faith in this game.  The numerous delays of the new set, the lack of updated on the various sites and the fact that my local tournaments no longer are no longer official since the beginning of February leaves me to believe than the game is in free fall, which does not help my motivation.  I will continue to play, for I still like this game, but I will reduce my investment in it.  But if this game take a new flight, it is possible that I start blogging again.

Thank you my dear readers, and if you don’t like this situation, says it hight  and strong in the commentaries section and maybe that I will change opinion.

Sous la Loupe : Makronil

10 février 2010

Makronil est la créature du jour. Pourquoi? Il faudra lire pour le découvrir…

MC 1

 

Energy: 50

Énergie :

50, c’est faible pour un combattant, mais il y a plus…

Disciplines :

Il n’est pas trop fort sur ce point. C’est 2 disciplines les plus haute doivent être plus haute que la moyenne pour avoir la moindre chance d’être utile.

Mugic

1 MC c’est bien pour un combattant de première ligne.

Éléments :

Il a 2 éléments, Air et Terre. C’est intéressant, car c’est une combinaison qui est facile de retrouver. Cependant, elle est plus utile dans un deck Mipedian.

L’Art

Personnellement, je préfère le look des Danians qui ont des caractéristiques humanoïde du temps présent.

Ses types

Il y a quelques cartes qui se fient au type Warrior et Past, donc il est possible que ces types soient utile

Son habileté

C’est là que la carte prend tout son sens. Makronil gagne 5 d’énergie pour chaque autre danian que vous contrôlez et ensuite 5 d’énergie par autre Past Creatures que vous avez. Et comme ces 2 habiletés son écrite séparément, si vous avez un autre Past Danian, il gagne un total de 10 d’énergie!! Malheureusement Makronil est le seul Past Danian … présentement. Donc dans un deck avec 2 Makronil et 4 autres Danians, chaque Makronil a 30 d’énergie supplémentaire.

En conclusion, ce n’est pas une carte très puissante par elle-même, mais comme elle peut aisément avoir un haut niveau d’énergie, il lui est possible d’être un adversaire redoutable.

From the Vault : Infestation Vs Compost

3 février 2010

This article was origanaly posted on June 14, 2009.

I received this e-mail recently:

Hello,

I have played a lot of cards games and now I put myself at chaotic. I do not know a lot of players and I would need advices. I play danian and I would like to have to know which fighter it is preferable to count on between Neekwin and Nimmei? I possess illexia, mahrrant, tabaal and dubin. Currently, I play 2 Nimmei, but I do not know if it is preferable to play infestation  with nimmei or compost with neekwin, can you to help me?

Jean Top

Personally, I like these 2 strategies. The 2 have a big potential, but none is perfect. Let’s look at them.

Infection:

Nimmei is a key creature in this type of deck. In a deck 6 against 6, if all the creatures are infected (or mandiblors under your control), Nimmei can win 60 in all its disciplines and to is energy (and this is without counting the Mugic counter on Illexia). With disciplines so high and 3 elements, it is a challenge for any creature.

But as the game  advance, the more his strength diminishes because of the  reduction of the infected creatures and Mandiblors. This dependance is the biggest weakness of this strategy. What’s more, it is necessary to use several cards in order to attain his potential maximum. There some of them:

Illexia: She allows you to keep a high level of Mandiblor as the game advance.. What’s more, she can activate the Hive.

Mahrrant: It allows activating the Hive once for each of your victories.

Tabaal + Mugicial Lyre: The goal is to enter in fights with this creature, to sacrifice the Lyre and to infect 3 creatures. Dubin can be to use instead of Tabaal, but it is not a Madidiblor as Tabaal, so it will not give a Mugic counter to Illexia. I prefer the Lyre to the Flute because it does not give any mugic to our opponent.

Strain of Infection: in the eventuality where the opponent disinfects creatures with an effect, it is possible to use this Mugic in order to give 3 Mugic to Illexia to reduce the damages.

Deep Dirge: Once Tabaal no longer has Mugic counter, it is possible to use this mugic in order to sacrifice Tabaal and infect 3 other creatures. It is so possible to sacrifice other Madiblors….

Compost:

Compost is the new mechanics introduced in Turn the Tide. It consist in to put certain Danians in the discard pile in order to increase the power of the Mandiblors in play. In contrast to the preceding mechanics, compost wins in power as the game advance. Also, each of the 3 creatures that represents this mechanics are good Mandiblor (and they are budget).

Although these creatures have each a high courage, they have a divergences facing their elements, which make things a little more difficult to build an Attack Deck around them. There is also the problem as more creatures you sends of our own  Discard Pile, the closer you get to defeat. The last point that I wish to add is that there are some cards that have the possibility to withdraw cards of the Discard Batteries (and they risk being more present in the Metagame than the one that disinfects the creatures).

Neekwin vs Nimmei

Without assistance, Neekwin is, in my opinion, clearly superior. It has higher disciplines, more energy, water 5 (which go well with is high  Wisdom in order to optimize several attacks) and it is Untargetable. For its part, Nimmei has 3 elements which is great. In fact, although Neekwin has 2 elements, the latter do not go very well together.

But good can they be when everything is in place?

Nimmei in an infestation deck (12 infected creature with 2 Mugic on Illexia) :

Courage 75 => 145

Power 45 => 115

Wisdom 35 => 105

Speed 50 => 120

Energy 50 =>120

Impressive, no? Now for Neekwin (With 2 Ivelaan and 2 Makanaz in the discard battery) :

Courage 75 => 125

Power 40 => 90

Wisdom 90 => 140

Speed 35 => 85

Energy 65 => 95

In their optimum position, Nimmei seems more impressive than Neekwin, even if the latter still really strong.

Then, which is the most reliable one between Nimmei and Neekwin? Before giving my response, I wish exposed a last point while proposing you the following deck.

Deck: Nimmei’s Infestation Party

1-2-3

 

4-5

 

6

1 => A Mandiblor ( Probably Neekwin ou Irriabeq)

2=> Tabaal with a Mugician Lyre

3=> Nimmei

4=>Nimmei

5=>Illexia

6=> Mahrrant

How to use this deck:

1. Use the Mugics Counters on Tabaal to infect 2 creatures of the opponent (3 mandiblors, 2 infected, 2 Mugic of Illexia)

2. If this is your opponent turn , defend with Tabaal. Otherwise, attack with himl

3. Sacrifice the Lyre as early as the first attack.

4.Infected a creature of the opponent as early as the second attacks. As long as this ability is in the burst, use Deep Dirge on Tabaal with the Mugic counter of the Mandiblor. (3 madiblors, 3 infected, 2 counter)

5. Sacrifice the mandiblor with the newly brainwash Tabaal to infect 3 creatures of your opponent (2 mandiblors, 6 infected, 3 counter)

6.Sacrifice Tabaal to infect Nimmei, Nimmei and Illexia (1 mandiblor, 9 infected, 4 counter)

This is a way to pull the full potential of Nimmei. Nevertheless, if the Mugic Deep Dirge is opposed, there are 6 less infected creatures, which largely weakens Nimmei. To avoid this situatipn, it is possible to use Cadence Clash (Mugic). If that does not work, It is so possible to bring back the madiblor on the game thanks to a Mugic or a Battlegear in order to fight.

Then, which one is my choice between Nimmei and Neekwin?

Drum rumble…..

Personally, I prefer Neekwin and here a reason summary that urges me to do this choice:

1. Although Nimmei have a far greater potential than Neekwin, the latter has nonetheless a strong potential and he is Untargetable and as Water 5.

2. In the position where they cannot attain their full potential, Neekwin is more powerful.

3. The used creatures in a deck of Compost are better fighters.

4. I consider that a compost deck is easier to use because of the number of step needed to accomplish the potential of Nimmei.

5. Usually, a Compost deck seems to be more reliable than a Infestation deck(in my opinion).

Nevertheless, I must specify that a deck with Nimmei can be very powerful and difficult to overcome. It is not necessary to forget that Nimmei can use a Battlegear, in contrast to Neekwin (for which you have to find a means to remove).

I hope that this article replies to your question. If there are others questions on this subject, do not hesitate to give them to me in the commentary section or by e-mail.

What? You are not satisfy? I gave you a basis for a deck of infection but I did not do a Compost deck? Then I will have to work on that in another article…

Update

There is 2 news creatures that really help Infestation decks. Ambolx who can infect a creature by turn and Elna, who can freely activate hive each turn. Also, he is a great sacrifice for Deep Dirge
