    2x open memories is an interesting choice, what made you want that?

    also, it is probably worth adding more cheap allies, since it will take some time for rhinos to get up and going and you need something on the battlefield in the mean time. suggestions include raptor herder, fire archer and beast warrior.

    but if you use his abiity you cant play one of your cards. lets look at the first five you suggested:

    *summon masked wolf (free to play, [[illusion:class]][[basic]] to activate when not focused) +2
    *summon false demon (free to play, [[illusion:class]][[basic]] to activate)+2
    *small sacrifice (free to play, [[ceremonial:class]] to activate)+1
    *stormwind sniper ([[illusion:class]][[ceremonial:class]][[basic]] to play)+3
    *summon sleeping widows ([[ceremonial:class]][[ceremonial:class]] to play)+2
    *shadow target (noah redmoon ability,[[ceremonial:class]] to activate) +1)

    this is a TN of 2+2+1+3+2+1=11. this is an impossible start to use, since you can never use more then a net of 10 dice.

    you mentioned card draw as a possible alternative to small sacrifice. im going to assume you mean sleight of hand, since i don't think noah has any other card draw. this adds another 1 to your TN for a total of 12. however, if you draw another summon masked wolf, it makes the summon cheaper keeping the TN11. however, TN11 is still a problem.

    also, Aradel tends to run a first five of the three summons, shifting mists and root armour. this is TN of 6-8 (depending on whether she uses her ability and how many mist spirits she summons), and since you only need one power die ([[natural]] to summon a butterfly monk), it is likely that she will wolf at least one of your dice, which means you should prepare for a TN of 9. also remember she can meditate for more [[illusion]].

    if anything I've said has confused anyone, I'd like to redirect you to this article, written by papa pratt about the thunder number.

    Ok but what if she palys Root Armor on that jaguar?

    Also playing theese cards uses 5 dice, so there`s nothing left to use noah`s ability.
    And with Aradel`s Shifting Mist she is the one who will take control of your dice not the other way

    But the point is, you got a ability that can stop her jaguar on the first turn, so maybe you can take advantage of it i guess

    Could you tell more about it? What strategy should i have against aradel and especially what first five should be?

    I suggest to go for:
    Summon Masked Wolf
    Summon False Demon
    Small Sacrifice/Card draw
    Sniper
    Sleeping Widow

    So when aradel play its jaguar you can one shot his creature by sniper and when she tried to kill her go for the widow. after that, try to dice control her and shut her option down. Remember that you do have 4 more health than her so better make use of that either. Hope this will help

    Aradel is a tough match but I think there is a small window to win her with Noah, in precon way of course

    I love Noah, he isn't that weak precon in my opinion as long as you know your enemy and know picture of what type of strategy they will use against you.

    I agree it's a massive margin, so I'm curious as to why you include 3xopen memories?

  • Kalriva#1sqf commented on the deck Some na ni:

    That's a lot of ready spells to fit into 4 slots.

    The margin this deck sneaks under 500 by is crazy, nice build.

  • I can't answer all of these questions but i thought about how to keep the game more accessible. In my Analysis the existence of a necessary core Game does hold the game back compared to competitors brands.
    But the Main Problem is not the Core Game, just the Dice and maybe the Tokens.

    >How do we create a two player competitive card game that is accessible to casual players (Ashes and Summoner Wars both arguably achieved this), but which also encourages enough of them to adopt the game as a lifestyle game that it will fund continued development?

    For the Dice i actually have a solution : Blank Wooden Dice are so cheap you have to buy them in Packs of 10 or more when ordering online and you can get them in a lot of places like local game stores. Just print sticker packs with the Dice sides, so people can test the game without the 40€ up front payment.
    You can still make and sell the plastic custom dice, but making that material easily accessible for beginners seems very important to me. Probably should have something like a 'Starter Dual Deck Pack' that just comes with the stickers instead of or in addition to the big box.
    Currently the barrier to entry is that you have to know you want a 40€ expandable card game. For Keyforge you only need to pay 10€ for a functional deck. If you like that you can buy more and there are multiple Products that are good for beginners.

    >How do we objectively measure sales and audience involvement with the game to allow us to make accurate predictions so that we can follow through on our promises for game life cycles?

    Audience involvement is of course difficult to measure for smaller games. I guess the way other companies do it is social media. If you make an announcement video for an expansion on Youtube, google just gifts you the data.
    If the product has a digital component log in rewards help a lot to produce data.
    I was always drawn to the Card reviews. Give me any reason to log in (and be active) with each news and you get a good chunk of data.

    >How do we simultaneously work within the current structure of the game industry, but also reach out to consumers directly (which offers better data and a higher profit margin)? Technically you get both of those things with a digital game.

    Not sure if there is a solution for physical card games. Has to wait anyway until the Pandemic is over.

    The last Question i can not answer shortly.
