Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Post your own card ideas here.....

With regards to Krazyguy and Danzam’s argument, I think Krazyguy presents his case better.

Thanatos is bad. Legendaries’ value is in that it reliably brings something to the battlefield (e.g. powerful activation skills, strong attack or Summon on attacked ). Thanatos can be easily neutralized by placing a meatshield-grade card in front of it e.g. Usial/Ospry. It won’t kill the enemy but the enemy won’t be triggering its SA2 on death often also. To sum up, Thanatos is very unreliable. It prescribes a certain enemy deck composition to make itself work as wished and even so, RNG have to be factored in.

I doubt the usefulness of Strike all 2 on Death. The prevalent archtype Raider Slowroll have a load of protect and healing is easy to find nowadays.

And Danzam, your maths is wrong. Everybody who learnt about probability can tell you that. Classic example: Flurry 2 + Immobilize.

Last but not least, Gimmicky skills does NOT work. See Gorrus.

Amusingly, battle station is too weak. Next to necro nest, it has less survivability, more time, and only strike all 1. If you replace strike with enfeeble, then it would stand a chance. Attalia is a little bit too OP. If it has those stats it needs slightly less health. Conscript faces the problem of many anti-grimclaws: It dies to it in 1 turn (Swipe for 6, Swipe for 6). To beat grimclaws we need a swipe sunder stun. That shuts them down. Endurance could hold against a Grimclaw with 1 Necro. If you are using a Grimclaw with 1 Necro, you need a better deck.

@Battle Station: You’re legit, maybe ~10 health could make it work
@Attalia2: I am considering that fear is losing popularity
@SConscript: I factored in the 1st drop Grimclaw situation. This is meant to dent the tempo of claws, diverting their attention to healing the claws. Proper rally adds to its lethality
@Endurance: Endurance means Buying time for the rest of the team to activate. Please don’t assume that the enemy always have 2 NNests at the beginning of the game.

One new design while I prepare the next batch

Stun is used to balance between surviving and fully utilizing counter. This also packs good punch among stun cards
the majority of Stun cards has low attack

Raids are becoming less and less well made. Epic Jotun is a bad flop and Karkinos even worse.
I have had enough of raids, it’s time to stop. I suggest we look into making cards that would make an impact


This could potentially revive the Xeno faction and would be the first true dual-purpose cards.


A special solution to redundancy of Heal all commanders. This has built in antifear and could solidify RSR


Stun and heavy Valor that could be a potent anti-grimclaw.


Can hold against a Grimclaw+Redeemer with 1 activated necro nest, hopefully can be anti-grimclaw also

Hybrid Raid design! A version of Lithid and Learnaean Hydra fused together!

Xeno Bioweapons
Consecutive defeats drove the Xeno to desperation so they hurled both the Lithid and the Lernaean Hydra at our forces.

Commander:

The enemy deck always has 12 cards.

1 in each of the following:





There are enough flyers and some stunners to render Grimclaws impotent!

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Theoretical Max of Protect on a Unit?

If you’re relying on emulate, then you are outdone by this one simple tweak……..

8 Powerplants+Octane+metatron2+Muninn Tank=>Augment 25+ Protect all 3 + protect 1
=>Protect 29 on Muninn + Emulated protect

Sum: Protect 922 from Rofficer + protect 29 on Muninn = Protect 951

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Theoretical Max of Protect on a Unit?

Same here. Why Munnin tank when THIS is better?

Can tribute only be exchanged between two units twice? Because tribute would have to cycle multiple times in this deck between Pyro Cannon and Metatron to exceed 922 Protect.

I think your one won’t work,
Working is shown below:
Metatron2 + 8 Pyro Cannon + Pylos wagon + Silus => Augment 12+Protect all 3 = Protect all 15
Protect all 15 tributed by 8 Pyro Cannons= Protect all 15 × 8 tributes = Protect all 120

The way to do it is Rofficer and massive tribute from thunderers.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Dealing with the upgrade set

The upgrade set is becoming bloated. Following the economic upgrades, some upgrades became senseless as the cost is free. (e.g. alt-arts, promos) Removing the upgrades of those cards simplifies the card-set system

Promo cards’ and event rewards’ upgrades (Free upgrade) should be removed and have their lvl 1 forms be buffed to the stats of the upgrades
e.g.
(free upgrade) →

Cards available from the Reward store’s upgrades (Free upgrade) should be removed and have their lvl 1 forms be buffed to the stats of the upgrades. Their costs should be adjusted accordingly
e.g.
(15000×2 +20000 gold) → (50000 gold)

Raid rewards can’t be realistically dealt with as that involves vested interests

Ultimately, only upgrades to cards within card packs are sensible as those prevent the situation of Goliath dominating Nexus tourneys.

Really? Wow! Well the cards look really nice, but if you ever want to save yourself some time, just use this: http://purei.github.io/tyrant-card-builder/ ;)

I do appreciate the creator’s hard work in working on the card builder, but I am a perfectionist. That means I can’t bear the jagged font and the incorrect proportions of the card builder.

Event Design: Ashrock Militants
Most card images are ripped off Tyrant Unleashed, I did imagine the devs will release this event ostensibly to commemorate the release of Tyrant unleashed

Rewards:
500 Points:
1000 Points:
2000 Points:
2500 Points:

Mission Commander:
Mission intel: A particular Raider who styled his tactics and image on Typhon Vex has gathered a mixed force in Ashrock. We cannot afford to let him rise to power.

Ashrock Militant 1:
Intro:
Yurich: Typhon Vex! There are reports that he is operating in Ashrock! It can’t be, he’s dead!
Lord Silus: No, Yurich, this is an imposter. I am sure he is not Typhon Vex. Typhon is too aloof to incorporate Imperials into his force.
Lord Silus: Kor does not allow anybody to slander Typhon’s name despite the trouble he had given us. This pretender must be liquidated at all costs!

Ashrock Militant 2:
Intro:
Lord Silus: Raider soldiers, do not follow the path of this impersonator if you honor Typhon’s name!
Typhon Vex: Hah, you fools! My soldiers are loyal to me and my ideals. We will unite Acheron, and we will start here in Ashrock!

Ashrock Militant 3:
Intro:
Lord Silus: This commander’s revolutionary tactics do not compensate for their nascent army’s weakness. Slay these dogs!

Outtro:
Yurich: This is a very successful joint operation. Silus, I do think we Raiders can unite one day.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [SPOILER] Upgraded Cards

The general problem: There are cards that deserve this upgrade more
Refer to “http://haileon.com/TyrantDEV”; for details on the upgrade


Adequate upgrade, can now stay on the field reliably to check flying and armor for QS. Availability adds to its usefulness


Strong upgrade, but does little to remedy the Achilles’ Heel of RSR : fear


Adequate upgrade in all respects, but without a practical use or a place in a deck archetype


Strong on paper, both abuses stats and skill power resp., but without a practical use or a place in a deck archetype


Inadequate upgrade, entirely did not address the problems that bars them from use

More experiments. Please leave comments.

Intoxin Quadripod: Generally inadequate if not for meatshield value and cleanse,
Greatmind: Maybe not worthy of legendary status, but otherwise good for its purpose
Planet Digestor: Probably on Par with Kapak, Flurry 4 is interesting
Firestarter: Phase is like Sunder, on attacked form devastates its usefulness; The valor-blitz combo is nice
Shrouded Falcon: Too fragile, Berserk on attacks is contrary to flying and low health.

EDIT: Shrouded Falcon is not good because:
1. It uses up the legendary slot
2. It is fragile by the standards nowadays, Compare with Sprintpod
3. Unlike Sprintpod, with a healthy 2 attack and flurry 2, it need to be hit several times to have an attack value
4. Unlike Sprintpod, which decides most games upon activation, this does virtually nothing against a non-wallstall deck
5. Ospry is extremely resilient. Against wallstalls, it is a safer solution
6. The above points offsets the benefit brought by Siege all 3

Any space for Improvement? Yes: Increase HP to 8, increase Attack to 2, Decrease Berserk On attacked to 1
