Hello am I the only one to think that Momentum is OP ?
As a mechanic in and of itself, no, I don't think it's overpowered from a design perspective.
It hits all the right notes -- "use it or lose it," wanting to draw resources, the tension of potentially sequencing incorrectly and running out of gas too soon. All great fun.
You could make the case that individual momentum cards are too pushed, but I don't think the mechanic itself is a problem. I like it a lot.
The mechanic itself is not OP, but some cards with it clearly has no "cost" for momentum on them which makes it ridiculous.
Short answer: yes.
Long answer: yyyyyyeeeeeessssss.
Short answer: no.
Long answer: F*** No. These are the last two bashes - the most competitive, regularly occurring, standard events we have.
One momentum deck managed a 3-1 finish. None got to 4-0. With the results its currently posting it doesn't even appear to be a tier 1 deck let alone overpowered. Every competitive deck in TCGs has some people who don't enjoy playing against it for any number of different reasons. That's why you look at data not personal opinion.
The momentum deck is powerful, but not the mechanic. The problem is that the mechanic got some powerful and synergistic cards that generates value (and resources, which should be the balance factor) and huge troops quickly. But the mechanic itself is fine.Twitter: @Plotynus
I don’t believe the momentum mechanic is overpowered. The diamond wild one is strong because of certain cards.
I wouldn’t even play it in the current aggro meta
if eldurathan’s glory was out of constructed.
Against control only Brosi buk seals the game.
Both my blood ruby refuel deck and my ruby sapphire briny ray aggro decks are outperforming my diamond wild momentum deck. This is based on my experience on the ladder this season where i’ve been as high as rank 2 (currently 5).
