Mage Pixy SS

5 turns - no grims. That is so cheap.

Nerf! Nerf!

I think 6 turns is too much, maybe 3-4 is more reasonable? I don't know, I like the concept.

I am ok with her SS. It can be quite situational, not everyone cares to rely on mass grims and even if they have 3-5 grims, they not necessarly need them so much. It's like the character killer decks, a gamble skill.

Except... This makes some Falkow combos unstoppable.

Evangelical-stall, or 999HP, for example.

It cripples Returns.

It cripples last-minute Gowen grimoires.

It cripples so much stuff, and means that a DMG-spam file without grims (e.g. one sweeping tidalwave and no other grimoires) is overpowered vs. a situational file that uses a grimoire to counter different situations... And non-donating players use a lot of grimoires.

This SS just favours triple-unit cards too much, and will make for boring usage.

It's not that great of an SS. It stops some types of files and that's it.

I am actually happy that there is an SS like this. It will be able to stop grim-spam big decks and other grim heavy decks, and teach some people to use mroar units. Also Phen, I am a free player but I use files that only have 1-2 grims so don't lump all free players as grim spamers.

Sorry.
When I was a free player, I spammed grims all game long. This is because the Set 1 Starter was terrible. I had forgotten about Set 3 starters being much better.

Eh don't worry about it. BTW I still use set 1 Falkow starter and it's not that bad. It still serves me well with out too many grims, though I wanna make a working Mermaid deck...which will take more money...

Any way, back on topic, This will be like plenty of other cards/effects in Altiel. Only the people that it will negatively effect will complain about it potentially being OP or unfair. :P

We'll see how it goes. Remember, if you have it in a deck and go up against an enemy with no grims, that's an SS wasted. Same if you have it early and he uses late grims or vica verca.

Well, I got my Mage Pixy SS - and it is InstaWin!

I highly recommend it for tank-based stall files.

By the time my opponent recovers, I'm on him with 3-4 tanks and a a Knight of the 2nd Shrine SS.

I wonder what would happen if you gave Mage Pixy to newbies, and asked them to use it in Folrart?

Feel free to test on my Iczer; PM me and we can decide on a File slot for you to use.
I even have triples of Balzelda.

Hmm, thanks...
But I'll take the risk! If I want to play a generic file, I can always Falkow-rush.
