  4. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I was hoping someone would cast Wrath of God or something. Well, it isn't over yet. But I am regretting playing goblins and I'm not sure why I thought it would be a good idea. In retrospect, I don't think the "lowlander" deckbuilding restriction is enough for some tribes. Well, whatever happens, I won't be playing zombies or elves next time. Maybe I should play some phenomenally underpowered tribe, like as penance or something...

    Well, here we go. Let's see what happens.

    Untap, upkeep, draw, tap Kiki-Jiki to make a copy of Goblin Piledriver, tap Krenko to make 15 goblin tokens. I'll attack Spiderman with 4 goblin tokens, Turgy with 11 goblin tokens, and Killer Joe with Goblin Lackey and the temporary copy of Goblin Piledriver. Responses/blocks?

    I think only Mooseman had a chance to cast Wrath; I think I have Pyroclasm in my deck but not in my hand.

    Block two of the tokens.
  6. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Well, no one else has responded yet. It's finals week for me, so I'm not going to be on much until I'm done with that crap. If I remember correctly, the rest of my turn was to play a Goblin Warrens if no one had any responses, but I was expecting that there'd probably be responses...
  7. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yeah, I'm surprised turgy22 hasn't replied by now...
  8. turgy22 Nothing Special

    I was under the impression that I was dead.
  9. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Before the attack or after? I don't think you're dead going into the battle....
  10. turgy22 Nothing Special

    I meant after.
  11. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Oh, well, I think Oversoul was waiting for any combat responses before making sure of that :)

    I'll send a PM to KJ, he seems to get those as opposed to checking the game.

    I think it's almost right. The only question is aren't the Goblin tokens that were generated by Kiki dead once your end of turn step started?
  15. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Kiki only made a Piledriver... the rest of the tokens are permanent.
  16. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Whoops, I got him mixed up with Krenko.

    I guess it's up to Mooseman then...
  17. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Sorry Guys. I drew a plains and not the wrath I needed
    Looks like this game is a wrap.
    Can we do another with out the turn 5 kills? :)
  18. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Yeah, I'd like to try this again and I'll think of some tribe that isn't so cheesy. I figured I'd jump on goblins before anyone else did, but it just made for a deck that was too explosive because that's what goblin decks do. If other people want to build decks around another overpowered tribe like elves, go for it. No, really. I don't have any deck ideas right now, but if we do another game, I'll find some more obscure tribe like lhurgoyfs or nephilim or spellshapers or something. I don't know.

    Wrath of God would probably have killed me. I had one card left in my hand.
  19. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I think this is why we banned those three tribes in the first place; most everyone is interested in using "obscure" tribes and with just one person using a "power 3" tribe, it doesn't make for much fun. I suppose if everyone was using one of them, it might be better, but I think we banned those three more to protect ourselves.
  20. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I agree. I didn't think much of it when we were coming up with new rules and no one really addressed it, or if they did, I missed it (I think CanadianBrad was questioning why we would ban them at all, but that just led to me explaining why I thought banning them in the non-restricted version of tribal games was valid). If we'd had this data point to go off, or if I'd just thought more realistically about it more, I'd have said we should ban those three tribes even with the restriction rule. Goblins, at least (and elves too, probably zombies as well), don't really need cards outside the tribe to be powerful. The goblin deck I built had well over the 1/3 deck construction quota and only used a handful of utility and acceleration cards, which, as we saw, I didn't even need.

    Nevertheless, I don't intend to push for a rules change after just one game under these rules. If someone else wants to play elves or zombies, I'm inclined to see if we can stop the power train before it hits us. I'm not even inclined to use another proven tribe right now. I'll find some tribe that's never been played yet.

    If you guys do want to do tribal bans now, I'm fine with that too. Whatever works.
