[OLD] Frost Arena - Deck Tier List

    • Just finished another run with the spiders, ran into another "fun" elite. Elite Hogarth the Area Master... Your cards have +2 cost. This makes this an absolute nightmare, definitely wondering what sort of build can beat this particular encounter (without some godly RNG like Hogarth getting shard screwed for ~7-8 turns straight...)

      I beat this guy on my first attempt with a lucky 3rd turn Phenteo's Gift followed by a Chronic Madness next turn which started a lucky chain of spiders. I guess it's not meant to be easy as it's the last elite boss, I would have had my first perfect run earlier today but for Elite Zanya starting first all 3 games and utterly destroying me on the 3rd turn each game.....it was such a joke. I have adjusted my expectations with FRA 2.0, perfect runs are something that won't happen very often (for TerrorMill anyways as it's very RNG based) and I'm fine with that.

      From my own experience, my own twist on Terrormill seems reasonably capable (Finished an arena with it, 2 losses, one of those to Archon of Nulzaan which is pretty much Botanist for mill decks). When in doubt, apply big spiders.
      My only run was also with a old and not tuned terror mill... finding archon was a real bad surprise

      Has anyone tried Playtime in a terrormill deck yet? I'm really interested to see which choice the AI makes as default but haven't had the chance to test it
      I had a random effect generate Playtime, and when I played it the AI let me take the card (it was a Burning Skarn). There were only three choices and none of them very enticing, so the AI might make a different choice with a more powerful card.
