Yes, they can only attack minions, or in other words things that you can put in the front row. No hitting rooks, queens, kings, etc.

Topic: War of Omens / Cheap and effective decks

Originally posted by Samgar:

For Sofo, some variant of one of these decks works well for me, pick whichever you have better scarce levels for.

2x Corruption 11,12
2x bounty 7,8
2x collect taxes, 4,5
1x loan 3
1x usary 3
1x masquerade ball 7
1x sybline scrolls 4

OR

2x militia
2x ballista
1x mercenary
2x synod
1x collect taxes
1x prayer
1x courtley intrigue.

With the corruption bounty deck there, it’d probably make far more sense to run court intrigue over the second collect taxes. Or if prayer is reasonably upgraded, that. (can buy, can attack… one magic is better than one gold even in a bounty deck, if otherwise same cost. In general, it never makes sense if upgrade levels equal to run more than one more collect taxes than prayers)

Really, for sofo and listrata wall of four cost commons (allies and otherwise) plus synod (any upgrade level) plus corruption for sofo or merchants guild for listrata (any upgrade level) is a better deck than you might expect.

Topic: War of Omens / Share your deck

I’ll admit, I hadn’t thought of holy wrath for the deck. Originally it was like double banker double bishop double benediction… and didn’t really work. So I pulled in supplicants and prayer and so on to fix the problems it had at that time.

Indeed it is. I mostly play GM so most of my decks are basically tuned for it. Glad if anybody found it helpful to see.

I thought that Pocchi magic decks were rather classic, but I don’t see any around here, so here’s mine:

Pocchi

Serf (2)
Militia (3)
Mercenary (6)
Supplicant (5)
Bishop (9)
Devotion (8)
Tithe (9)
Devotion (10)
Tribute (11)
Holy Wrath (13)


I have a bunch of cheap meat shields for my supplicants (+magic and converts food) and bishops (so many resources! pretty tough too). With a bunch of allies on the field, Devotion and Tithe becomes devastatingly powerful. If Holy Wrath shows up in the bank and I have the money, it destroys everything. Otherwise Bishops and Tributes can drop huge amounts of resources anyway.


I would appreciate any advice to help me improve this deck.


I’m fairly certain you mean Liturgy with your second listing of devotion (either that or the cost listing is wrong). In any event, Pochi basically hates gold gen without synod or bounty to dump it, so I would drop tithe. With the ally selection you have, benediction would not be remiss, perhaps over the tithe. You lack loan, even though you have a bunch of expensive cards, it’s arguable the best Vespitole card, and it’s definitely Pochis favorite in my opinion. For comparisons sake, here’s my Pochi deck with contains certain similar themes…

Loan (3,4)
Prayer(5)
Supplicant(5)
Sibylline scrolls(5)
Synod(6)
Bishop(9,10)
Benediction(10,11)

Supplicants and bishops don’t need meat shields with the multiple benedictions activating them, in my decks context. Tribute is generally one of the worst Vespitole cards simply because it is more expensive than Benediction and yet generates less resources under a lot of conditions (such as a single bishop fielded). My deck doesn’t have a gold excess problem both because it lacks an excess of gold generation that tithe tends to represent, but also because it has Synod. It is not uncommon for my deck to win by going infinite, in fact. (I.E buying so many cards that all 10 coins are in hand so you have a never ending turn of draws and win by definition. Honestly, I’m not convinced this is the best Pochi I could construct, but it is definitely the one I’ve had the most fun with.

On the topic of your deck, I wouldn’t run serfs or militia in a Pochi with no Synod. Palisades represent more meat shielding, while Ballistas represent more effective and difficult to remove allies. I’d either ditch the tithe or find a way to implement Synod/Bounty. Pochi loves loan generally, and that goes double with so many expensive cards, so that could be another option to replace Serf or Militia. Since the deck is so ally focused, I’d likely replace the tribute with either Benediction, to boost the effectiveness of those allies, or Inquisitor: another decently tough ally, that critically can convert both food and magic into 2x attacks.

Loan-knight is pretty hard for a maxed zam to handle. especially from sofo and listrata who can get out some free extra damage thus sealing it’s fate.

Topic: War of Omens / When to stop buying Oak

General consensus as I understand is, assuming you are willing to pay to get access to the higher packs, you should be buying lowest tier that you don’t have maxed. So oak till all commons maxed, then silver till uncommons maxed, then gold forever from, then on.

I’ve been running this one for a while and it’s pretty fun…

Cardinal Pocci
1x Wealthy Patron
1x Banker
1x Marshall
1x Palisade
1x Rampart
1x Collect Taxes
1x Fief
1x Tithe
1x Synod
1x Bounty

Bounty is pretty much your win condition…but for this deck to work well, place a few money making units (Banker/Wealthy Patron/Marshall)—enough to make 5-8G per turn—behind defensive permanents (Rampart, Palisade) and then continue to buy cards WITHOUT SPENDING ANY COINS!!! This allows you to max out your banker’s ability and creates an infinite loop between money making spells (Tithe, Fief…etc.) and bounty, as well as play all defensive structures and units lost. Synod helps you draw bounty and fill your hand with coins. Either you will win by using the infinite loop or by dropping bounty with an insane amount of gold.

Only one win condition tends to be bad, this deck out and out can’t win if the enemy misinfos the one bounty you have. And with the obsessive focus on gold you have, you’d probably be better with this as a sofo deck, actually (since the deck should have no issues building the gold to buy it’s more expensive card, Sofocatros board control and built in win con would likely be more useful). Plus I’d replace tithe with benediction. Same gold generation at worst, much better more than likely with that ally set (unless you replace pochi with sofo, in which case the gold gen would be slightly worse, but you’d get piles of skulls to throw, especially with some marshals out).

Topic: War of Omens / What do we know about the other heroes?

The devs have confirmed that the endazu are in the midst of an unprecedented succession war dealie. The previous king, Odashir, was some kinda immortal, so he didn’t need an heir. Then he mysteriously vanished. The Endazu heroes are apparently/presumably the dudes fighting it out for the throne.

Topic: Card Hunter / save the trees

Like literally every skill on the tree has a trait of “can’t be used in melee”, or rather, “This card may not be used on characters adjacent to you.” At a guess, that’d be why.

Topic: War of Omens / All in game Heroes (including Campaign and Tournament)

An inaccuracy with this guide I noticed while trying to get 4 stars on various missions. The Pietra Siani with “Each Turn: Draw Ally” is not, as this guides framing suggests, like Esra, but rather is essentially Rat Catcher: the Hero. She draws those allies at the start of the turn (in addition to whatever her end of turn draw gave her) and if she has Marshals she draws even more extra allies, whereas Esra is merely guaranteed that at lest one of her draws each turn is an ally.

Great guide overall, just hoping to make it even better by pointing out this detail.

Topic: Global Assault: General / [Dev] Player Feedback

I really feel the Raven needs a buff. It’s the same tier as the Zeus. Zeus has 5 more hp, 1 more of both suppress and armor, and strike all 3 thrown in. Raven has… 4 more attack. which is mitigated by the Zeus strike all, as the only advantage it gets in turn. I’m specifically talking fully upgraded in both cases, but I’m pretty sure the principle applies at lower upgrade tiers too.

He does not get that title till much later, after his promotion to Grand Commander for the victory in Asphodel. During the siege of Asphodel, Halcyon’s rank is that of Captain.

Nice catch Matttro! Glad someone likes to read the story!

I thought i read that he was “siege captain” halcyon, actually.

It doesn’t announce confusion as blatantly as some cards, but it does show up in the log and as one of the cards they put forth both when the tactics cards are selected in the first place and when the fight shows.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] A personal request to the devs

The event is over, and I have more than 4000 event points stockrd, because I had yet to decide wether to get gorrus or not. On the last day of the event, my computer broke, quite completely and unexpectedly. I write this now from a devic that is essentially unable to run tyrant, not even able to get to the point of spending the event points. Though I kind of expect to be dissapointed, I now desperately ask that the devs convert my 4000 event points into four grimclaw, seeing as how I am not going to be able to repair or replace my computet until well after the event point spending window closes. Please devs, give me the cards I have earned but am tragically unable to grab as is. PS: I apologize for any typos I missed, this device is hard to type on.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / Enfeeble

Well, if it’s like the flash Tyrant, then it technically will affect counter but fades before that can come up. Hard to say though, since they changed, for example, the timing on poison damage (In the flash Tyrant, it happens at turns start instead of end, before anything else can happen.).

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] Make Phase 50%?

Originally posted by artdz:

yea requiem and vulcar are not good. Cannon Wall has a good combination of skills that include phase, but that’s like arguing every skill on cannon wall is OP. Its the combination that makes it so strong. If you remove strike all 2 from cannon wall its not remotely great. I don’t think phase is overpowered at all as a mechanic itself.

As far as single mechanics go, I feel like Generic cleanse on commander and Summon are the two most OP abilities standalone. Everything else is only OP with the correct combination of abilities that make it strong

I disagree about summon: the problem is the power scaling on it, especially on play, on death, and on attacked variants. In other words, if Warpway Fortress summoned something really crappy (Enclave Remnants, maybe?) it would still be useful but not the game changer super general card it is (Compared to cards of its time at least, less sure bout nowadays, not in a faction and don’t do tourneys, so yeah.). In general, cards with summon tend to have only a minor hit (if any: see hornet drones* versus that xeno, torment surgeon I think, whos sole advantages are… being xeno instead of imperial, and not flying? yay?) to other abilities compared to their peers, in exchange for (ussually) summoning something that well more than makes up said hit in strength.
