OM*G! Was Damselfly really so good that it deserves to lose 50% of it's attack? Really?!?

This nerf will ruin the card for what it was: annoying little bugger that wasn't quite worth using CC, but if left alone easily dealt dozen or more damage in a game. Attack 1 is stopped with almost every shield, and the risk of losing your quanta source compared to the damage output it potentially deals, will make this totally useless card with this nerf. Just let the Damselfly have it's 2 attack! May it cost 1 :air, 1 :rainbow or 0, I don't care, but do not nerf its attack. >:(

NOOOO!  This is a HUGE nerf for :air !  Damselfly just went from a badass finisher w/Sky Blitz to...fodder. :(
Don't know if you were being sarcastic, but either way I agree with your statement.

This is a painful nerf to damselfly.... It basically ruins my deck http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php/topic,18220.0.html (http://Fragile Flyers)

It will probably add a turn to the TTW. Really unhappy about this.

2|1 means 8 damage per turn, with adren. That is a nice card. 1|1 is like a joke. Super vulnerable and no bite either.


I am sad this will ruin my deck :(
From a ttw standpoint, this is a huge nerf to damselfly.  Even before skyblitz, damselfly was a pro card few people knew about.  I don't like this change at all.  Damselfly was fine as is.

Damselfly has been changed in the Trainer again.  Its stats are now 2|1 with no cost.

That actually makes it worth using IMO. Air doesn't benefit much from quanta producers anyways, so being slightly stronger than the other quanta producing creatures shouldn't be a problem.

At 2|1 with no cost this card is awesome and probably bumps Powerful Wyrms ahead of destroyer rush in ttw.  I think it could be a bit much to have a free 2|1 creature with an ability but it certainly would be totally game changing.  Upped Wyrm is a useable midrange attacker on it's own but air does not have an upgraded card that has an attack 2 or more above cost like many other elements have so it would be reasonable to have a more powerful 0 cost creature than other elements.  It is still not as powerful as RoL, with it's Hope synergy so I think it would be fine to stay at these new stats.  I also would not complain if it was reverted back to original stats. 

Edit:  I just realized that destroyer rush may become faster as well using free gemfinders as cremation fodder so it may be a battle as to which gains more by these buff, Powerful Wyrms or destroyer rush.

Thanks for hearing us out, Zanz ;)

This was much-needed and adds synergy to :air. I'll contribute to Damselfly statistics soon enough.

Since :air has no pumpable spell a free 2/1 card isn't that OP.  :air is a pretty agressive like :fire sans the PC, so it makes sense it should be pretty fast.

Mono-air is quite brutal with these, make no mistake.  Only did two battles, but ~7ttw isn't bad.

Wooo!! Our words have been heard. Removing poll as it is no longer applicable.

This poll was applicable back when the Damselfly was free to play and generated :air but was 1|1 :


Yeah I voted nerf.

Hey! I didn't get to vote... :(

On another note though - despite its shared damage with Brimstone Eater and Ash Eater, the :fire equivalents are better served for Cremation fodder in fire-rushes and don't need to be upped to deal that 2 damage. Nonetheless, great buff indeed to the little bugger (no pun intended), and if there's a featured card article about this guy, it'll be easier to write about him (and find some decks as well). ^^;
