Should genesis sac'ing count towards verore death worship?
« on: August 14, 2013, 05:29:12 PM »
It doesn't make sense to me because the idea of genesis is reconstruction. If every little bot I reconstruct is going to make all the worshippers +1/+1 it's almost game over (this happened to me earlier, and I'm not blaming this mechanic but it definitely screwed me over towards the end). I get things like Shikana being sacrifice and a few other cards where the unit is simply dead, but I see genesis as reusing parts, materials, energy, etc.

Am I alone here?

Genesis is not the only culprit of this mechanic, and it is intended.
No seriously, I really like cheese.

I conceive that a great part of the miseries of mankind are brought upon them by false estimates they have made of the value of things.

Yeah you would think that with CoV countering GI in every other way that something like this wouldn't be necessary and frankly it isn't...

I would think that artificial units wouldn't affect VDW, but that might nerf them a bit too much.

It would nerf them too much to not automatically counter the most underplayed faction? ???

I'd argue that warpath is the most underplayed, but regardless, VDWs are not very good to begin with. They have that one thing going for them.

I have yet to find another player who runs a 2 purity GI deck, including a game or two against Hitori. On the other hand, I have run into numerous 3 purity WP decks, most of which have beaten my 2 purity GI decks. (CURSE YOU FIGHT! >:()

Both of my decks are 2GI :D One splashed with DoD, one with FD. Dat Angelify. Anyway, GI is quite often played, it's just almost literally always splashed into another faction.

Quite often played as a 1 purity splash, most notably for 2 FD 1 GI.

The faction has very little ability to stand on its own and is used almost exclusively in a support roll. (even in 2 purity variations of the FD rush) Looking at a lot of the cards from Rise though, this may not be an issue for long.

The only faction that I often see played as 3 purity is WP.  The others almost always splash.  I'm amazed every few days when I run into another 3 purity FD player.

What Erlaya said. 3 purity decks are quite rare, the only ones I ever see are WP. But I agree, Genesis is next to useless on its own, but it excels in a support role.

3 FD purity is strong because 2 FD purity is strong. The good news for 3 Purity FD is that you'll be getting Bloodbath. Which will be a hard counter finisher vs decks using Mass Death when you use it on the opponent's initiative (Move everything to your support zone, bloodbath triggers and moves everything to assault for 2 attacks).

The card will indeed be valuable when it comes out for sure because it is one of the couple of viable 3 purity spells out there. (The card was already revealed so I can talk about it lol)

And I say "One of" because there's another one coming out and its for GI. AND NO ONE IS GONNA KNOW WHAT IT IS UNTIL THE 17TH! Bwahaha xD.
Fact - 42.3% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
