    GoldTiger I need me some PIE!

    TLDR (from my first glance)
    Pretty sick Hydraxor buff (even though hes probably still bad). Tidemaster looks pretty ridic (just look at how our doomies go) adaptation and on a 4-6 range champ with leap 3. Erode nerf (chipped boulder was always better and should have been nerfed) lul. Also some jelly nerfs (not sure why).

    Edit: PS is it too late to change boghopper elite :D ?

    Why did Mindbender got a cost increase? None of his abilities changed in cost...

    Salaman Fighter LE version is different from the regular version, is that intentional?

    I have hydraxor in my aquatic deck. Kinda liked him at 70 nora with normal aquatic. But ill see if hes ok like this too

    Also snaptoith helm did not get a snaptooth clause.

    Also what was the thought behind the swamp octapus change? I mean, i was the only onewho played him and i can tell you, he was already good, this buff seems strange to me. He is now 54 hp for 45 nora btw.

    So aside from Tide master buff (which I bet will get cut soon) all we got were basically nerfs and lateral changes...

    Adaptive on Tidemaster - will be interesting to see if it turns out to be stronger than surge.

    It probably will since it also adds HP and 6 range means you can keep him safe most of the time.

    Firk Infiltrator has Shadowspawn in U1, with Stealth and Shadow Shift in U2... Wat.

    Stealth should be switched with Shadowspawn in the upgrades there. Poor Infiltrator, someday you'll be good.

    SireofSuns I need me some PIE!

    @Sokolov Question about Rite of Purity, do both Purified and the +1 Range last of the 6 turns, or just the +1 Range?

    W/o jab now shadowspawn + shadowshift is not a bad option, making him really cheap and great to harass side fonts or if you want more utility elusive + detection is also pretty decent.

    Just a PSA to those using draksar psion (old rune I know but will replace shredders for me), shrive deals physical damage (not psychic), also if the attack does 0 damage it counts as a 'failed' attack. Beware!

    Glad you liked the suggestion

    5 range 40 hp 5 spd. Pretty rough statline psion is the perfect replacement <3

    Firk mindweaver didn't really get anything done to him :/
     
  18. SireofSuns

    SireofSuns I need me some PIE!

    I like him. He's decently tanky with his absorb illusion, and having a ton of illusions to swamp the battlefield (hehe, swamp) can be nice.
