Topic: Card Monsters / Hydra's monopoly

Honestly there are more good points, the thing is quest lines are really BORING, this is no lie, and every CM player is aware. The endless grinding is so nerve-wracking that a deck that isn’t ready is gonna have a tough time and will reach a stump for a long time. Which is also, in its own way, good or bad, since you get to improve your deck in any needed way and then try again, but on the other hand, your progress will also be delayed.

In my case, I was “stumped” in Beach Limits for 2 months, because I didn’t have a TS, and I wouldn’t mind having a “cheat” such as Hydra to skip that boring part. Or even now, I was lucky enough to finish AP8 the 8 times it required, then I read I needed to beat it again 30 times just so I can carry on in the story line (sigh), which needless to say isn’t gonna happen.

So I’m just gonna save up and buy enough Armory boosters till I get a Hydra.

Topic: Card Monsters / Suggestions for Improvements on Current Underpowered Cards

Changelog:
10/08/13 – Added Aeon, Wide-Maw, Boocan, Sherift, also posted on edgebee.com forums

Hi. I’ve noticed ever since I started playing this game some cards were just too weak for their status and would require some sort of “buff”. I also leave a brief explanation of why.

From the start.

Masters:

Desert Striker:

This was one of my first rares, and I thought it looked pretty good.
Later I realized there were better options in red, and the CC increase over the levels just didn’t do it for me.
Possible Improvements: Lower L5 CC to 2, and add 20 HP.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Ninja Fox:

Weird CC changes throughout the levels, low range damage, and I’m not sure if I’m supposed to slap him on frontrow or backrow because of his weird HP.
As said before, there are way better chances and Eagle just completely buries this card.
Possible Improvements: I liked the 2CC, and maybe more range for a little less HP would be fine with me, after all, we got Ying Suit.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Green Dragon:

Not a terrible card but I felt like saying its cost is too high to effectively played and ends up being sacrificed most of the time.
Why make a card whose only objective is to be sacrificed?
Possible Improvements: I won’t touch on stats on this one or CC, but I suggest a Crystal 2 Ability, since it’s an epic and will be sacrificed most of the time anyways.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Cold Mistress:

I can’t begin to describe how nasty this card is.
It loses hard to reflect (Which will make the card heal itself instead of healing your tank, which is what you want), has less heal than a Watercat, and super low hp, again, less than a Watercat.
It’s also not any good defensively as it is offensively, overral too weak.
Possible Improvements: At L5, Heal to 40/Magic to 40, and HP to 60
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Frock:

This card isn’t terrible but Turtle is generally better. Point is they are both swarm cards and 40 Damage is more handy than the extra 10HP.
p. Possible Improvements: None, I respect the differences Edgebee made from Frock to Turtle, Turtle just ended up being the better option.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Mystical:

Crocodime:

There’s some good in this card, and some bad.
I like the Chance 40 and the 3CC, but why does a 90 HP ally need Stealth?
Possible Improvements: Remove Stealth for a more fitting ability or more chance, maybe even range or melee.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Murble:

I’ll have to touch upon two cards to explain a possible combo I have in my head (if only it was possible)
So Murble has Wall, an ability more purposed for backrows who actually take magic hits, but he’s melee, so he has to stay in the frontrow, or he won’t deal any damage.
My point is, there’s a card from Harrowing called “Assassin’s Blade” that cannot be painted blue, and would however be quite a strong combo with him.
Hell, even Ying, but I won’t argue since it’s 3CC uncolored, the fact is, Assassin’s Blade isn’t very useful not only because of its high cost, but also because Ying puts it to shame.
Possible Improvements: Give it reach! Or make backstab an ability available in blue.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Bellican:

Decent range damage, but disease has got to be the most useless ability in the game for me.
Possible Improvements: 2CC at L5.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Abyss:

Kamicron:

This is probably the mother of bad red rares.
Hell, I’d risk and say it’s the mother of bad rares.
It’s high costed fort what it does, has no damage, low HP.
It has an interesting concept but done so bad, I’d rather play Eagle that deals damage at least, or Flame that doesn’t get bursted down so easy.
Possible Improvements: 80HP, 3CC or leave it at 4CC and add melee or ranged damage.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Bait Keeper:

Not terrible, but it needs something extra in my opinion.
Possible Improvements: Regenerate would be nice in my opinion.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Vapor:

It is awesome until L3, then it becomes useless to level.
Why would I want more HP? It’s supposed to come in, hit people, then die.
Then again, there aren’t any good ranged equips than can be painted blue (A complaint within a complaint, complaintception!)
Possible Improvements: Keep HP at 10, but give him some sort of extra damage (Maybe Anti-Air, which can be thematically fitting or Opportunity) and keep the cost at 2CC.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Sharknight:

High CC from L1 to L5, it’s an otherwise solid and playable card.
Possible Improvements: 4CC at L5.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Squidiver:

For an epic it’s really weak.
Has just more 10 heal than a Watercat, and a little bit more HP. It’s great it has 2cc, but that’s it.
Possible Improvements: Add an extra ability (Wall, Cautious, etc) or even more 60 Heal.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Giantrat:

It’s great but feels lacking to me..
Possible Improvements: Trample or Thrash maybe, since it synergizes well with Drain
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Seeker:

Why can’t it be painted blue?
Possible Improvements: Yo, my homey Vapor could use some extra range and opportunity!
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Soul Eater:

Since Drain is a purple ability, why not make it 2CC for purple?
Possible Improvements: 2CC purple.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Elixir:

6CC is too high for what it does. One turn of courage and heal 30?
Possible Improvements: 3cc max.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Mithril Shuriken:

Strike 20 for 2CC is quite average, and weak for an epic.
Possible Improvements: Strike 30 and Crystal.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Harrowing:

Glumbie:

Oh god. This is probably the card I wanted to talk about the most.
It is literally the worst epic in the game, and it brings sadness to everyone who draws it.
Not enough HP for regenerate, low magic damage, low melee, and high cost.
Possible Improvements: Complete remake! Or 120HP at least, 40 magic, 50 melee and 3cc. Done.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Tower Shield:

Considered a swarm only card.
Possible Improvements: Minus 1CC at all colors.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Assassin’s Blade:

Let it be painted Blue and I’ll be happy.
Possible Improvements: More colors.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Bird Blade:

Utterly terribad. So high costed for nothing.
Possible Improvements: 3CC
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Aeon:

Expensive for little magic and is too situational.
Possible Improvements: Less CC, more magic damage.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Heroic:

Sky Bracelet:

Another equipment that desperately needs to be able to be painted blue.
Possible Improvements: More colors to be painted!
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Epic:

Sherift:

Dies too quickly for its job, I’d expect more durability from a rare tank.
Possible Improvements: Shield instead of counter, doesn’t have THAT much melee to start with.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Unlockables:

Wide-maw:

Has no defense or high damage, so it’s essentially a 3cc brittle ointment.
Possible Improvements: More melee, maybe reach (which would fit the card, a plant that reaches you with his vines).

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Boocan:
It has high damage and decent HP, but that’s it. I’d prefer Granger.
Possible Improvements: Destroy instead of Disarm.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

More cards will be added eventually, thanks for giving this a read.
I seriously hope some edgebee staff comes across this and gives some changes to some cards, leave your
opinions below too.

Topic: Card Monsters / Swap Option

I think a swap option should be added at the cost of 4/5 crystals, but, so fear isn’t useless it would lock those two in the positions it puts them in.
Or not, just as an option to counter fear, because it’s kind of strong.
