Happy Birthday me
It has now been 5 years FIVE YEARS!!! I have been running this blog, that is a ridiculous amount of time and yet I still don’t have global domination… Maybe next year.
A lot has happened in the last year, but at least I still keep going (gone are the days of 2 posts a day, yes I use to post twice a day everyday at one point o_O) and more importantly I enjoy doing this even if only 3 of you read this its better than just me shouting into the wind..
Games This Week
This week I managed to have an Emmisary-off, with my first run out with Ramos VS Jack Daw in Guard the Stash. Ended coming out with a 10-8 win but it was a brutal affair with me wiping the JD crew off the board but not quick enough to make the VPdiff bigger.
What I did learn was that Rail Golem could be a better pick than Howard especially with reactivate (the positive flips is pretty powerful more so against JD). Also the Mech Rider is just a scheme runner unparalleled. Plus with a nod towards my 10T roots Angelica is handy with her pushes.
The Emmisaries are powerful don’t get me wrong but the Arcanist and Outcast ones are very different beasts. I like the support and scheme marker fun of the outcast BUT it doesn’t feel like it is pulling its wait cost-wise (perhaps in my mates crew he couldn’t get enough trinkets out and not enough friends nearby to use the Destined action to its fullest).
While the Arcanist one hits reasonably well and the attacks although not heavy damage the fact there is Ca involved is very helpful. Plus the 3 card draw for destined was very helpful, in my case removing 3 rubbish cards out of the deck.
Dont forget your chance to win that Alchemist Guild Ball team is still on.
Due to family concerns, the shirts are going into hiatus for a little while BUT I am sure they will be back soon.
