Topic: War of Omens / Memes

I just had the 7 wins myself, also without any rare cards. It DOES offer 1000 silver as a second prize if you don’t want to pick one of the cards (the route I went for). So, there’s still a halfway decent other option.

Topic: War of Omens / Best Tournament Pulls?

What are your best decks that you’ve made for tournaments?

Here’s one that just earned me 7-1:
Hero: Sang (Magic guy)
2x Seduce
Warding Circle
Bloodlust
Lackey
Informant
Behold the Veil
Misdirect
Ballista
Loan

Between Bloodlust and Seduce, I mostly managed to keep my opponent from having any allies in play (I loved it when one opponent played down a golem right when I got a random apothecary draw + seduce). One behold the veil held in hand meant I had magic whenever I needed it, as did the lackey. The only one I lost was a guy who had a pretty sweet Sybline Scroll + Rite of Combat combo going on.

Dunno if this is a bug, but I’m playing against a GM Mogesh who just just pulled Underworld Barge (Endazu)… and I’m not even playing as Endazu (Metris)… so weird…

Just for curiosity, if you get 7/8 wins with the epic coin hero, are the epic coins options for the card picks too? :P

Thanks for that tidbit. I was worried about starting since I thought I’d have to sit through the equivalent of around 20 skirmishes in one sitting.

If someone gets to the 7/8 win category, can you please describe how you get to “keep” the cards? Is it just one upgrade level if you already own it?

Thanks!

(Trying to decide if it’s worth it for myself to go for that high win streak)

You can actually. Just go into the menu and select quit. As long as it’s past the first three turns, you still get the 10/10 for defeat.

Topic: War of Omens / Share your deck

After Endazu (who is still my main) and a brief life as Daramek, I’ve decided to try a Metris deck. This is my first deck that has a great win rate (just got the 3 in a row on Master with it) with Metris, and I’m still learning, meaning this would likely be a good deck for others who are just starting off with Metris and want something simple:

Theodox (20% prevent destruction)
Brute (for pure attack and the 3 HP can eat a decent number of skulls)
Infighting (great vs. ally spam)
Arson (great finisher and vs. stockpilers)
Surveillance (cheap skulls)
Informant (cheap & love extra cards, restock helps bank stay full)
Misdirect (Walls still help even with hated cards like Bloodlust & LTC)
Lackey (Just one means you have over 1/3 chance to save a card that was supposed to die, again restock helps too)
Deceit (great for stealing cards; 0 cost means can be played anytime)
Seduce (Gotta love stealing those awesome allies; try to kill non-desired ones first)
Waylay (cheap quick damage)

As with most Metris decks, this one is entirely built around using your opponent’s cards against them. Just play with it a few times at an easier difficulty than you’re used to (I’m GM and started in journey instead, now in Master; only half are fully upgraded) to learn the ropes.

I think you mean Palisade (as Rampart is the 4 defense card). There are two main points for serf over palisade (although I personally am a palisade player too): 1. That 1 cost matters a lot when trying to go infinite; 2. it counts for an ally for the cards that give things per how many allies you have.

Topic: War of Omens / Suggested the fourth type for Endazu

GG: Okay, having more than one would make it an okay card although doubtful to see it in MP.

DG: You would need to change the description to “feed magic to any ally”. With that understanding, could be an okay card, again doubtful for MP.

RL: You need to change the description again. You said for EACH CHARGE. Caliph sends out Petals and Circles at 4 each, so it would be just one more based on your description to get it to activate. With the change, it would probably be underpowered and rarely played except by petal spam players.

Topic: War of Omens / Suggested the fourth type for Endazu

Overall, Ruin is a nice idea; very similar to Daramek’s shrines. Individually:

GG: Decent idea; I almost wonder if underpowered, but overall a decent card (compare it to grave contract)

DG: Way underpowered. I’m paying 5 gold + 7 magic for 2 flowers that I could get for 1 gold each? No thanks.

RL: This one I really like; it would help Caliph players a lot, but it could actually be overpowered; can’t say.

TC: High cost both ways, but it is an extra turn… too slow for most games, so wouldn’t be used in MP. Dunno about GM.

WW: Decent idea. Hurt and help, but again it’s a rather slow card. Many could use the coins sooner. Perhaps if it could be fed coins instead. Something like feed 5 coins = 5 charge = 5 magic & back to 0 charge.

BTW, your Apothecary is OP’d, and Bloodlust is already too strong.

Topic: General Gaming / Good "chattable" one-on-one game?

Hello all,
I’m one who’s good at video game because I really get into them (think like a lesser version of the main characters in “No Game, No Life” if you’ve seen it). My girlfriend also likes video games, but for the social aspect. Thus, I am curious if there is a Kong / Steam game that is more laid-back so that I can still focus on chatting while also playing the game, preferably a one-on-one game (or team vs. computer). It’s a long-distance relationship, so local MP games are out.

Any ideas?

Topic: War of Omens / Games Per Day?

I’m just statistically curious: On average, how many games do you play per day? Also, what types of games (i.e. campaign / skirmish / MP) do you generally play?

For me:
Around 5-20 average per day (often 30 on those quest days)
Around 90% GM skirmish (sometimes lighter skirmish for a quest)

I wouldn’t say you made a valid point, mate.

Nice way to only partially quote my opening. Anyways, we’ve diverged enough. Everyone has their own favorites. The point of this thread is to see what they are (and perhaps help newer players see the cards best to shoot for and why).

Another one from me: Playing against a GM Metris who has total frame spam only to lose after my one whispered barb card finally finishes charging up :P.

Topic: War of Omens / Most Powerful Cards Per Faction?

Since we have a topic on the weakest cards going, why not the most powerful? These are the cards that can single-handedly win a game or work with incredible synergy with the right leader. EDIT: Since it seems to confuse people (dunno why), the idea is to pick either cards that work well on their own (single-handedly) OR work very well with others to make common combos (synergy).

Max pick of 3 each (but you can have honorable mentions)

Vespitole:
1. Loan – Used for so many combos
2. Lead the Charge – Can win the game sometimes
3. Inquisitor – Costly but doubles attacks
HM: Marshal, Supplicant, Knight/Soldier

Daramek:
1. Ceremonial Dance – Free Cards
2. Rite of Passage – With Mogesh, can be killer
3. Stampede – Cannot say how many times I’ve lost to this card…
HM: Goat Outrider, Sacrificial Lamb, Shrine of Rebirth, Bloodlust

Metris:
1. Stratagem – Used right easily changes the game
2. Forgery – Mind games + 2-cost card = win
3. Arson – Can wreck your opponent either way
HM: Stolen Plans, Mayhem, Waylay, Clever Planning

Endazu:
1. Odashir’s Echo – Can copy ANY visible card, crazy good even with 3 delay
2. Gilded Scribe – Used in almost every combo
3. Scroll of Petals – Great magic generator
HM: Behold the Veil, Argoreth Flower, Gilded Warrior, The Yarakeen

So, what would be your top picks?

For me, I just had one. I was so excited to see Odashir’s Echo in a rare draw (I didn’t have the card yet) that I missed seeing that one of the other cards was Mogesh (one of my last heroes left) until it was too late…

Of course, the same day I get another rare draw and see Mogesh again… but this time I actually pick him :P

Topic: War of Omens / Rites discussion

In my opinion, the worst part about Bloodlust is the situational use of it. There are three kinds of situations:
1. Fighting an enemy with no wall = underpowered for the cost
2. Fighting an enemy with one wall (maybe two weak ones) = at cost
3. Fighting an enemy with tons of walls = overpowered totally

It’s a VERY unbalanced card, for BOTH players.

Topic: War of Omens / Rites discussion

As an Endazu player, I am not a fan of Bloodlust. I spend time charging up defenses only to lose them all in one swoop to that card. It’s even worse when my opponent doesn’t start off with it (60% chance) as then I don’t know whether to plan on it or not… a card that can bust through literally hundreds of defense is too OP’d.

The fix? Make a maximum that it can break through, say max of 5 defense that it breaks through or something like that. The idea being it can then break through most single cards (i.e. rampart or frame or a normal Endazu wall) but not this crazy “let’s destroy it ALL” card.

Topic: War of Omens / Devs: PLEASE give 50 silver / exp to the victor of 1-3 turn games.

There does need to be SOMETHING done to multiplayer. Even for quests, I don’t find that the hassle is worth it; I just ignore those for the most part. With the current system, the ONLY time I play multiplayer is just out of curiosity to see how my deck handles against humans.

Topic: War of Omens / Share your deck

I’m curious: Has anyone tried a deck based on loan + usury + bounty? I just played against the AI who tried a VERY heavy loan + usury deck; he quickly built up around 50 gold, but he didn’t have bounty (or any real expensive cards besides a single soldier), so it ended up being a very easy win even though my gold was quickly a crazy negative.

Topic: War of Omens / Share your deck

Getting a bit bored of Endazu, and with the discussion about the “uselessness” of Daramek’s rites, I decided to try building deck around those rites. It’s winning around 85% at master (not quite as good as my Endazu, but I don’t have the cards upgraded to the same degree either):

Ezra (Draw Ally)
Lepers
Gold Panners
Goat Outrider
Scavengers
Rat Catcher
Scrivener
Rite of Kin
Orphan Gang
Herd of Goats
Rite of Brood

The idea is to start off with generating resources (and a leper if against an aggressive opponent). Rat Catcher helps to bring killed allies back into play. Goat Outrider and Lepers help protect against attacks. Gold Panners / Scavengers / Herd of Goats are the primary resource-generators. As soon as possible, I buy a rite (although I will wait one more turn in order to maximize the cards I have left). Once I have a rite going, the game turns (I often start off behind). Scrivener helps keep the rites coming in (it’s “on play” too, so even if killed, if she is in my hand, it’s basically like drawing a rite). At that point, it’s a matter of quick economy buildup and using the skulls generated (and food onto Orphans) to finish it off.

EDIT: It is VERY weak to “Ransack” and “Odashir’s Echo” though… sucks when you face them back to back and each gets lucky….

EDIT 2: I just adjusted the deck to have Rite of Combat instead of Rite of Kin. It’s now more solid vs. steal card decks. Win rate still isn’t crazy good (About 80%), but it no longer has a glaring weakness.
