Fishing for piranhas

    • Fishing for piranhas

      Based on the Fateweave discussion, I tried to make a reverse one with only eight ice shards. Obviously when we're fishing for resources, I thought of fish. So it's not very fast (wins turn 4-5 earliest), and probably won't allow perfect runs (I made it to Elite Hograth and lost 11-3 with only tier two perfect).

      To fish, mulligan until you have a shard in your opening hand, preferably with some morpholgoy and low cost damage spells. Keep seeking fortune (if you started with two shards, you be a bit more adventurous) and removing opponent threats until you get a Piranha Swarm in play. If the opponent won't attack into it or fly over it, train them to deal with it. Watch the opponent get eaten by the piranhas :whistling:
      Occasionally dragging all troops into the depths can provide an opening if no-one bites...

      There a probably many ways to fish, but make sure you can keep pinging damage on the opponent troops to lure the piranhas in.
      Best moment: Periwinkle plays and copies a
      Crocosaur, bites into multiple swarms and gets eaten alive next turn :thumbsup:

      A more peaceful sea-fishing experience can be done using the Coyotle way, but was not as succesful for me.

    • So the questions is, is this better than a normal shard base? I don't think so - just replaced it and went 14-0 with only a loss against the Mountain Giant Elite. I felt the FRA was easier today, lots of times where the opponent didn't play any card. Might have been due the Scallath debuff, which with a normal shard base comes out a bit faster.

      And again, Periwinkle did not disappoint. Piranhas > Dinosaurs for sure!
      First Crocosaur fights a 3/3 skarn and a Piranha Swarm and dies - drawing the attention of another swarm. The second one thought 'I can do that too!' leave Periwinkle with 6 health after turn three and dies the next :thumbup:
