I think 3P DoD is on the road to greatness, or at least better...ness.
What do you guys think is the best or a good commander lineup?
Daode/yuanshi/xi, who honors the many
thoughts? I feel like DoD needs a good vigilance 3 drop, besides Gao han whos unique.
Gao Han, Infected Monk for Value prupses as the buffs carry over (I've been tryign out Liand however), and Avatar of Lingbao.
the idea is to play like a Warpath deck more or less, abuse the fact your minions can take a drumming and keep going, switch out injured units into offense. It's a midrange deck tho you lose the mement someone who plays Calamity goe up against you, double so if he can take care of your Dojo.
I think as Merlin mentioned you are missing the fact that 3 purity DOD has multiple options now, they are not limited to winning by morale and have an attacking option. If the worry is calamity as it used to be DOJO and calamity yourself is the perfect play
Even post calamity played by the opposition I have lost against them numerous time via then stacking their decks with upto 6 avatars.
Retaliation is a handy defensive option against big fliers that try to avoid your ground defences also.
I think from last set the aim was to move DOD away from being a defense only win condition for them and I believe you will see more cards all be it not 3 purity that will provide them with more attacking options from mid game onwards
I know what you mean, but Morale was kinda pushed way back over the course of this, and it was an interesting way to win. Not to mention we are now stuck with cards, MANY cards in fact, that serve very little purpose for the faction.
So yeah, I didn't start this thread because I love turtling untill the timer runs out, I started it just because I was, and still am woried that DoD is going to find itself in a very bad place, where almost all it's cards are balanced for defense, but it's something that is no longer viable once you take away the finishers.
Spirit of the Serpent was a step in the right direction, but it's a terrible card for several reasons, and Monkey was a great card, but actually really annoying and hard to deal with.
And I know many factions have their own black sheep, but I dunno, I feel DoD is a lot more constricted in what it can actually play compared to most (if not everyone other than Sleepers).
