Think so, for refess anyway, Falkow can level 4 t2 with ToR...but that's off topic :lol:

If you're playing Big Refess, you might as well play Recovery Powder instead. If your opponent doesn't have any units out, you can't sp gen.

If you need +2SP right now and don't care if your opponent gets +1, or if you're playing pirates with refess sphere, then Inspiration is the way to go. And Inspiration is still the only way to get a LV4 played by T2 if you don't get shaded.

Did I get everything?


Everyone's using the "if your opponent doesn't have any units out, you can't sp gen" argument like it's a common occurrence in alteil. Every file type plays units within the first few turns (when sp gen is most important). I'd argue that even if you're facing a big file while playing one yourself, having divine impact is better since during the early turns you can use divine impact to potentially kill off an opponent's sp gen unit (leaving yours alive to sp gen). Big players also wont have to worry about sp drain preventing them from playing their sp gen card. Not to mention, after the opening units big files tend to use stalling units. And again, recovery powder is useless in situations where you only have the 2 sp gained from a turn. No starmander file (ie arguably the most common big refess) is going to play recovery powder over divine impact. The advantages of having divine impact far outweigh the advantages of having recovery powder in pretty much any file type.

Playing inspiration turn 1 is a mistake, it offers no advantage over your opponent and opens you up to lose against shade open (one of the most popular opening moves in the game). And people play falkow/refess pirates? I think most people nowadays prefer monosphere falkow, especially with the release of new pirates and all. Not to mention, why waste file space with proxies/moxies just so you can add an inspiration when you can use that space for extra falkow grims?

If you want to make it a rush only card, Dean's suggestion is actually better. In fact I'd argue that the targeted damage would make it better for rushes. It would also help ensure recovery powder still remains a viable choice.

Is the new pixies level 7? Or level 2? =/
When the end comes, and enemies are rushing in from all sides, I will be at your right hand.

Although the level isn't stated I'm pretty sure it's not level 7 (it seems to be designed to be used in rushes). It's probably level 2 as most other pixies, and if not, it'll likely be level 1 or level 3 rather than level 7

Hello everyone. I appreciate the feedback. Just take into consideration that the new set isn't out yet because it isn't completed. The new pixy is roughly the size of every other pixy so logically the level should be pretty similar :D. I really enjoy making these posts and keeping everyone informed a few weeks in advanced that a new set is coming out and hope I can do more articles like this, plus who doesn't like hype?

Its amusing how people love to theorycraft.

All i have to say is that when i saw this on the front page, i panicked and recycled extra copies to get the falkow ex 12 because i thought it was going down already.

I should really consider PCing grimcount stuff now. lol.

Good read, though a bit too ballpark i think... but my reading level is low so its probably just me and my affinity for children's books. lol.
