    Ok, new update is here, what should I spend my 100 shadow crystals on?

    I currently have a Zaladar mill/beatdown deck, which I like, but it just doesn't do well in the current meta.

    any ideas which hero I should switch to? I'm thinking some sort of Nishaven burn deck using his ability and the staff that delays units.

    Go for it, half the fun is in the trying.
    Must insert something witty here

    I shall report back with the deck in a minute or two hold on

    *Edit*
    Here is my Nishaven Mega Burn soon to be creatureless RDW style deck.

    4x sandra trueblade
    3x puwen
    4x blake windrunner
    4x fireball
    1x poison gas
    1x engulfing flames
    4x lightning strike
    2x research
    1x arcane blast
    1x special delivery
    2x bazaar
    1x bad santa
    1x dimension ripper

    I'm working on making this creaturless save 4 aeons filling the rest with burn spells and card draw hopefully, along with some BA equipment, but my gold is low and it will be hard acquiring them all so wish me luck!

    Sometimes I feel like such a pretentious cock for just spending $30 and buying a few thousand crystals and just getting a full 4x set of everything up front so I don't have to worry about such things.

    I understand that not everyone is in a position to do this, but boy, does it make things easier.

    I agree, I spent the RL monies and I'm glad I did. Of all the stupid things i spend money on, this is really fun, and frankly, the designers deserve it. This game rocks.

    Also, the $40 I spent pales in comparison to the HUNDREDS I spent on M:TG cards back in the day.

    Oh my goodness, the $30 I dropped on this game is about... oh, I dunno... $5,000 less than I've spent on MTG in the past 15 years.

    Sigh.

    [Edit]
    Actually, that's probably a low estimate =/

    Well it wasn't a big problem because I got just about all the cards I needed in a day from playing with it.

    Nishaven RDW
    4x fireball
    2x poison gas
    2x engulfing flames
    4x lightning strike
    4x research
    2x supernova
    4x arcane burst
    3x snow saphire
    3x voice of winter
    1x violet thunderstorm

    I find that the deck kind of fails against ones that use equipment really well because there is no equipment removal and I find it hard to deal with losing equipment to such removal. Anyone have ideas to deal with these things?

    A couple of things.

    First, what does RDW mean? Lol

    Second, I don't have a mage deck so my opinion might not matter as much. But, I was thinking of creating one with the cards listed below:


    Nishaven

    4x Blake Windrunner

    4x Fireball
    4x Lightning Strike
    4x Arcane Burst (I was thinking supernova, but if the purpose is to wipe the board of allies, Nishaven's ability would suffice)
    4x Clinging Webs

    2x Bazaar
    4x Rain Delay

    4x Voice of Winter
    4x Snow Sapphire


    I'm not sure if the damage would be enough to kill off an opponent. What do you guys think?

    supernova helps with that. in burn decks i typically run 4 (though i might only do 3 in nishaven) and play 2 / game, which is 10 damage
