King Lobizzard, and the Orca Wizard - Poison The Pelangi Nes

ChrissyGibssy 95

Need some help making this a bit better.

The Idea
Open with Wizard, and use Quetzal (the #1 coolest ID) to breakthrough early and get King Lobisomem out, then again for Orca, with Retrieval Run as side option. Pelangi and Poison Vile as Quetzal support. Get the band together to split costs and charge Twinning, with possible Pretty Mary support. Friday Chip to possibly recharge Pelangi.

I just wanna say that this is a phenomenal deck name.

Really interesting idea! * - *

Imo you should cut 1 pelangi (cause if you use the wizard's Chest and you find 2 of them you are sad as hell, you could consider then a 3x Gbahali or Kongamato to be able to use the chest early on. Works well with the poison aswell (can consider cutting both the pelangi and maybe adding a 1x Laamb for early aggression, with 3 lib and all those economy event you should be able to use it properly + you are quetzal so 2 creds to break a sub from Hydra for instance is cool, with a poison vial down even better). The 3x poemu is kinda eccessive, without moshing you have no other ways to get value from the second one you draw. But keep on it, this list has potential!

New Album: ToxiGbahalic Starpocalypse
Cut Pelangi, Pretty Mary, and the whole band, twinning and all, to run Stargate, Cataloguer, Maw, and Gbahali. It's been more fun to run, but I think it still needs a Cast or 2 (and card draw...) Jnet code:
3 Dirty Laundry 3 Jailbreak 1 Labor Rights 3 Raindrops Cut Stone 2 Retrieval Run 3 Steelskin Scarring 3 Strike Fund 3 Sure Gamble 2 Wildcat Strike 1 Cataloguer 2 Maw 2 Poison Vial 2 Prepaid VoicePAD 3 The Wizard’s Chest 3 Earthrise Hotel 3 Gbahali 3 Liberated Account 1 Lobisomem 1 Orca 1 Stargate

Remix: ToxiGbahalic StarMawcalypse

Replaced the phone book with the Bands and Ashen Epilogue (in hindsight, the perfect theme add) for econ. Other changes as well. Gbahali with Poison Vial rules, and Wildcat for +6 every. single. actually nice. Wizard isn't quite as reliable as I'd like, but it feels like cheating when it pops off turn 1. ^.^

@ChrissyGibssy Some random questions that come to my mind watching the list (didn't try it with this setup, playing a little bit different)

  • Why not Ghosttongue over ppvp? Is immensily better imo for your list (I am on Maemi which is better then ppvp anyway but I understand not playing it here for value on wizards)

  • Why aren't we playing twinning (that gets charged with orca's ability? feels like a missed free value here, but see previous point for the maemi

  • Did you find crocodile better then Pterodactylus during your testing? cause imo those 3 creds (more if you reinstall them after an Ashen) are worth the change, the effect with poison is the same. It's although true that usually the last sub is the one that matters on most ices, so I'm wondering if that's the reason.

  • Earthrise is just bad. Is true that once you have your breakers down you can potentially install it for free but is it worth the slots? imo no.

  • I'm playing without Console and Stargate, with poemu, taka, maemi, missbones and twinning, am considering adding the Keikos and the Stargate to have the potential of going both for multiaccess or for cautionary accesses with Stargate, seems a good call.

  • (With Lobisomen, Orca, Gbahali, Kongamato, the companions and potentially Keiko, is just pure animals joy.)

I'll keep working on this deck, do the same, it is really evolving in something I could consider bringing to the EMEA :P

Ohh and also forgot to mention a MUST IN imo, Tsakhia "Bankhar" Gantulga for the second wizard and for contesting early remotes against Rush decks

@Silent Arbiter
1. Tried it, but first game had it Amani'd the turn I installed it...and besides...
2. I put in Twinning :) and now have an excuse for those PAD's
3. That is the reason, and it did matter in 2 of my games, but really, it was to stick with the theme of the Album art for PetroDraconic Apocalypse lol. That's an interesting point about credit savings, but I'm still going with Gbahli for the better breaching odds.
4. Again, you're right. I'm now running Verbal. I know, it's still not that good, but it definitely feels better with this deck (plus the Genetics theme link with Quetzal). Don't really wanna spend inf on Nuka ****shrug****
5. Talk about leaving money on the table; you've gotta put Keiko in! You would know better than me of course, but Keiko is sooo much econ. Stargate is a maybe imo, but you're gonna have 2 extra MU anyway, and it's a nice card to have in your back pocket.
6. <3
bonus. You're definitely right about Bankhar, but I'm not good at using him, so he got cut for "theme" reasons...don't judge me lol

Publishing my final version now. Thanks for all the help! :D <3
