Speaking of that have you guys transmuted any premiums? I've made one: Roach.

I've also made one: Roach.

Haven't spent any elsewhere though. Was waiting to find the deck I fell in love with to convert to premium.

Edit: No change in stats. Just makes it look prettier.

I just played a game against a player who literally spammed the "bad move" emote on cooldown. You're not getting a GG if you're a salty little poo poo like that.

lol I would have just muted that annoying dude. I usually always give a GG at the end of a game regardless to trying and make my opponent do the same.

I was trying to see what he would do if he lost R3 he went super quiet but I ended up losing anyway due to drawing all 3 crones.

Can someone make a hearthpwn-esque system where it automatically detects which cards I own and which decks I could build with them, and how much it would cost to craft the cards I lack for other decks?

Is there a fixed order to how card effects resolve? If my opponent has a Wild Boar of the Sea (Strengthen the unit to the left by 1) on the board next to a unit at 1 life and I have a Frost effect on that row, how do I know whether the Frost will trigger first and kill the 1 health unit or the Boar will trigger first and the unit will survive at 1 health?

If you could somehow download the game, running the game doesn't actually require the GoG launcher unless you want to challenge a friend.

The value of gaining an extra card isn't ten, it varies depending on the round. Nobody wants to play frightener as their last card round 3 and that can draw you a gold/silver.

Tibor and Kayran are very strong because if you play them last they're 17-18 point golds almost every time. A 3 point nerf would keep them very strong but not quite as autoinclude (Tibor was good at 22 str and I played him, don't know why he was buffed).

The change they'd need isn't dramatic.

the value of an extra card is 10 because the spy that gives you an extra card costs 10. yaevan costs 12, and gives you the option to decide between two cards.

He gives you card advantage which is really good, but you have to learn how to properly play him. Throwing at a lost round isn't bad idea, having ways of getting rid of him right away(scorch), or even in the case where you are ahead in so many points that you simply don't care. It takes practice to spot when to play him and not, and what kind of matches is better to mulligan or even keep in the hand(unless you play Brouver, then you always mulligan)

For example, you can afford to run Yaevin in a Spell'tel list as you have a great number of instant removal at your disposal.

Dies to weather now is why he's especially good... and heavily reactive lists are looking to kill time while their opponent plays out their hand so that they can 2/3 for 1 them with weather and Villentretenmerth. He's less good in decks like dwarves that don't have cards that do things to the enemy board.

The value of having a spy after winning round 1 was slightly less for a few days when you could somewhat reliably force a card out from your opponent by open passing r2 after taking r1, but now that harpy eggs, morkvarg, and dwarves are all over the place the spies have gained extra value again. They're actually better now than they ever were in a lot of ways even if nothing is as stupid as old weather in terms of rewarding CA.

Frightener is especially unfair thanks to Kayran, and because it's a 10 str spy with a beneficial effect.

To get an idea of how much golds have been power creeped, I haven't seen Yenncon played once since OB (recently hit level 10), and I didn't see enough geralts and trisses to think it was a question of scarcity. Part of it is weathers doing what she does better, another part is that even over 8 turns she usually won't get above the 14-16 power you can reliably get with some faction golds.

Neutral golds that fit in a lot of decks are now by and large weaker than broadly useful faction golds like Zoltan, Kayran, Tibor, Hjalmar, and maybe Philippa (in general NR golds are blah tbh). That's not a bad thing of course.

What's the best neutral gold to craft first? I'm leaning towards Ciri Dash or YenCon, just to have an option for every faction (I only opened gold monsters). Thoughts?

Ciri normal, she's no longer a level 20 reward. The card that was probably the most commonly-run card in the game after first light and then got buffed twice.

Ciri dash is very bad (but fun in a way) unless someone has figured out a nilfgaard deck for her or something.

I think it's a good thing. Ciri/Borkh/G:Igni/RNR/Drought are all still excellent golds and are instant grabs in a pick-three, but if you play a lot of SK then you're going to want Coral over G:Igni for example. I agree about Yencon, she is strong in round 1 played turn 1 against popular decks like miracle NG/dwarves/foltest who play big round 1s because she gets a lot of opportunities for chip value, but she is basically a dead gold after that, and if she's competing with stuff like RNR or Coral who can make much bigger tempo swings it's a no brainer

e: not C:Dash lol

Is there anything in place like Hearthstone where if you craft something and then it gets nerfed, you can mill it for full value? There are cards like RNR that would be really awesome to have, but I don't play enough to accumulate huge piles of scrap, and it would seriously suck to spend it all and end up with a useless card soon afterward

The catapults are probably the weak link here? Check out vicovaro or those dudes that get buffed every time you reveal something. You could also go with uh, a siege engineer or two and get value out of a late spotter across rounds.
