I’m new. I’ve played a lot of different card games and strategy games in the past, but Faeria is rather unique, and I don’t claim to have mastered it yet. I especially like games with Hexagonal battle systems, and that really attracted me here. And I love card games.
I’ve been looking at a lot of guides. There are some red control guides I’ve seen, but none of them are quite designed like mine. I’m new, and still don’t have many cards (especially the epics), and I have no problem getting this epics in time if they are good…but are they?
Another question I have is: Is it ok to have 3 copies of a single card from another color? Specifically, a card I won’t use until late game. Right now, the card I’m thinking of is Frogify. I need some heavier removal than Lord of Terror.
My deck is all about dealing damage to the opponent while controlling the board and being defensive, more or less, never needing to actually get up to his orb.
Here’s my current deck list:
3x Farm Boy
1x Fortune Hunter
2x Blood Obelisk
1x Kobold Barracks
2x Seifer’s Wrath
1x Flame Spitter
2x Blood Singer
3x Gift of Steel
2x Fire Elemental
1x Fire Bomb
2x Grim Guard
2x Shedim Brute
1x Lord of Terror
2x Ogre Battler
1x Garudan, Heart of the Mountain
-I think Farmboy is better than Village Elder. 1 mana for 1 card…but that’s what I can get from the Power Wheel anyway. I’d rather chose, later, when mana isn’t as important, if I want another card or not.
-I’m not sure about Fortune Hunter. I like it better than Farmboy, but I’m not sure, maybe it’s not better. Is 4 neutral cards for faeria gathering enough?
-I love Frogify and it has won me games. Really good for dealing with all these big creatures. And Ruunin.
-I only have 2 Blood Obelisks; I’d probably use a 3rd if I got it. Backbone of my deck.
-I only use 1 Kobold Barracks, because I still want to give it a chance though I think it’s not that great really. I’ve heard good things about it, but it just seems I can never get use out of it.
-I only have 2 Seifer’s Wrath, though I’m not sure I’d use a 3rd. Good card, anyway.
-I only have 1 Flame Spitter. I like that it only requires 1 mountain so I can use turn 1 or 2, but it’s annoying that it’s gift is usually wasted. I only have 1; should I add more to my deck as I get them?
-I only have 2 Blood Singers and maybe could use a 3rd. Like Blood Obelisk, it’s the backbone of my deck.
-I really like Gift of Steel, and find it better than Kobold Barracks.
-I only have 2 Fire Elementals. Not sure if I need a 3rd though.
-Not sure if Firebomb is staple, but I only have 1 copy so I’m trying it out.
-2 Grim Guards because I don’t have a 3rd. Probably would use it if I did.
-I hear a lot of bad things about Shedim Brute. Should it be a card I replace when I get better ones?
-Lord of Terror is no Froggify…too slow…should I take it out of the deck? One of only 2 cards requiring 3 mountains.
-Firestorm is my other that requires 3 mountains, but it’s nice. Only have one copy, but not sure I need more. Maybe 2, but not 3.
-Ogre Battler is pretty solid. I need big minions, and taunts.
-Garudan seems good.
-I heard good things about Queen’s Favorite, but I think it was nerfed right? Maybe I shouldn’t use it. That being said, is Outland Ranger a good faeria gatherer? I like Campfire, sorta, but don’t want it to take a spot in my deck.
-Are Bomb Slinger and Ground Shaker REALLY that good? Ground Shaker only does 1 damage to anything which will probably hardly do anything. I could see Firebomb being replaced by Bomb Slinger, but I only have 1 copy of it as is. Bombslinger requires you being able to get to them, and it’s only a 4/2 body.
-Should I get Volcanic Colossus? I need more big cards. But like, what can I take out of my deck?
-Or is Battle Rager a better “big” drop? Thinking about Veruduran Force, specifically. Dealing 7 damage to the opponent would be nice, but so would leaving a 8/1 body on board (assuming they don’t buff him).
Thinking about it, Fire Elemental is probably not that important to the deck, but am I underestimating it?
Any other tips for my deck, things I could do to make it better, cards I don’t need I should take out, etc?
