I played 200 games for each side, 100 total.  (No farm decks)
quick nit-pick,
should say:
I played 100 games for each side, 200 total. (No farm decks)

that's all :)
ooops.  thanks for the heads-up.

Fifthteenth Matchup: (i killed your rush, dead!)

For this matchup, there is the reigning champion:

 Napalm Grenade's Fire Rush
It is a cremation based fire rush that is similar to the V2 Fire Rush.  However, this deck incorporates 2 explosion cards for permanent control.

Code: [Select]
5f2 5f2 6rl 7dg 7dg 7dg 7dg 7dg 7dm 7dm 7dp 7dp 7dp 7dp 7dp 7dp 7dq 7dq 7dq 7dq 7dq 7ds 7ds 7ds 7ds 7f2 809 809 809 809
Then there is the challenger:

$$$man's Rainbow
This deck was put up for testing by $$$man.  Its a relatively defensive rainbow deck with a discord and 3 black holes for quanta disruption, as well as 2 "wings" shields with phase recluse and flesh recluse to web enemy creatures.

Code: [Select]
6qq 6qq 6qq 6qq 6qq 6qq 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u5 713 74f 74f 74f 77g 77g 7ae 7ae 7ae 7do 7gm 7k1 7n8 7n8 7q5 7q5 80g


I played 100 games for each side, 200 total.  (No farm decks)

 Napalm Grenade's Fire Rush:
Win/Loss= 83/17, 83%
Turns to win (TTW) of 6.52

 $$$man's Rainbow:
Win/Loss= 78/22, 78%
Turns to win (TTW) of 8.56

Another great performance by Napalm's deck.  A win rate above 80% is what really good decks do consistently on T50.  A ttw score of 6.52 means the games were nice and speedy.   Most of the losses (11 of them) came from battles vs rush decks.

$$$man's Rainbow deck did "ok".  While playing, what i thought of the deck went through multiple phases:
1. At first i thought the deck was awesome but slow..
2. Then i thought the deck was terrible.  (i lost a whole bunch of games in a row against stall and control decks)
3. and finally, i thought the deck was "strangely good" (but not really T50 friendly)

I did not lose to any rush decks.  That's 0 (zeeeeroo!).  That alone is a pretty strange statistic when playing T50.  This deck is great vs rush decks, but then it is weak vs rainbow control and stall decks!  This goes against all common wisdom when battling vs T50 decks.  T50 is usually filled with rainbow decks, so any deck that does badly against them should be doomed to fail.  But this deck doesn't really fail.  A win rate of 78% is not failing, it is actually quite good.

The deck is relatively slow.  A slow deck with zero permanent control.  WTF!  That sound terrible.  And sometimes it really is terrible...  if the enemy deck gets out a permafrost shield, then GG! you lose.  If the enemy gets out an otyugh or starts slapping you with antimatter, then GG! you lose.
But obviously you don't lose to every rainbow and stall deck, or it wouldn't have gotten a 78% win rate.  The deck can win against rainbow decks if you can deny them enough quanta with black holes, to pull off a "slow rush".

All-in-all, $$$man's deck wins a good amount... but does this somewhat slowly.  Also, this deck will get you into terribly painful battles against rainbow control decks.  As long as you quit out of these painful battles early, playing the deck will be pretty fun.  (i played them out and usually lost by deck-out)

By the new rules found on page 9 of the thread, the winner is determined by the ratio of: Wins/(TTW)

For Napalm Grenade's Fire Rush: 83/6.52 = 12.73
$$$man's Rainbow: 78/8.56 = 9.11

With Adjustments for Overly Long Games: (3 wins were turned into losses)
For Napalm Grenade's Fire Rush: 82/6.42 = 12.76
$$$man's Rainbow: 76/8.32 = 9.14

Napalm Grenade's Fire Rush has the higher score and is therefore the winner!

Winner is Napalm Grenade's Fire Rush

4 :air is kinda expensive for a 0 attack creature, even if it does give you quanta.
i'm not sure what kind of deck i would build with this card.
you have some sort of combos in mind?

I have been playing for probably little over a year now. i have accomplished a few personal goals in game yet i grow tired of the game. i sold a quantum tower just to get electrum cuz i dont have a lot. i now have played idk 10 FG straight and lost everyone of them by being royally screwed each game. i refuse to farm AI 3 because its boring as hell.. top 50 isnt much fun either.. and losing to FG's day after day is just wasting electrum. not one deck i have tried works to any sort of profit. i tend to spend more time in the forum than playing the game out of sheer boredom. i tried doing some pvp events and pvp hates me and desynchs almost 100% of the time for no good reason. my connections always are fine according to the /connections page.
idk.. id like to keep playing but i need something else to do other than lose to the FG's and boringly farm top50 or ai3..

as for my upgraded deck i use if ur wonder its based off of one of the older rainbow builds i forget..
Code: [Select]
5rp 5rp 5rp 5rp 6qq 6qq 6qq 6qq 6qq 6qq 6qq 6qq 6qq 6qq 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u6 717 71b 71b 74b 74b 77f 7am 7dl 7do 7do 7k2 7n3 7q5 7q5 7q8 7t9 7t9 80h 80h 80ji tried time mark as well didnt really matter much other than i could play hourglass or sundial or eternity faster.. entropy works better with the supernovas so far as i can tell..

? ? ? = mindgate

Why don't you try out some other decks for FGs than the one you are using?  Maybe some ROL/hope, or "CC why bother", or other decks in the deck archive.  Maybe you would have more success with those.   But 10 losses in a row is hardly the "end of the world" bad.  Quit out of some Hermes matchups or something so you "feel" like you are winning more.
But posting that playing elements is boring, or that you "grow tired of the game"... on an elements forum... is kinda lame.

Why didn't you?! It could have been delicious! You could have started a whole new era of food dependency! You could have been hailed as a hero! >:D

mmmmh moths... i dunno   ???
maybe if they were juicy.
and their flight is all wrong, bouncing around in the air like that!
i think a hummingbird would taste better...  they fly so nice.

This is a serious issue. I'm surprised you take it so lightly. Having said that, I hope you manage to retrieve all that was lost, and try to not leave your windows open. ;)

And it's pretty funny that you assume it's a guy. :)

well i kinda have to leave my window open.  right now it refuses to close   :))
i did say that my car sux, right? 
only on special days, when the sun is at its apex, the moon is aligned with jupiter, does the window actually work.

and the thief wasn't a chick!  lets get real!   ::)

and... while i was taking a nap just 15 minutes ago, a moth flew into my coffee, and i almost drank it.

He stole your car keys but not your car? Um.....okay.
well yea.  he just sort of snatched stuff that was lying around.  he didn't want my insurance papers either! but he took those cause he thought there might be something worthwhile in my glove box.  i assume that he only later saw what he took, and then just threw them somewhere. 
the keys were lying with a bunch of coins... so he took them.

Isn't "burgled" an awesome word?

So yea, someone totally broke into my car yesterday.  I had the window wide open.

Things he stole: My insurance papers, car keys (yea i know it is really smart to leave car keys in a car)
Things he could have stolen but didn't: A whole bunch of tennis balls, Flip-flops, beach towel

it seems he threw my insurance papers on the ground, where someone picked them up and put them under my welcome mat.

he has my car keys, so he can take my car for a ride... anytime he choses. 
luckily my car sucks, and so nobody would really want to steal it.   :))

Ok so is it just me or does it seem like, unless an admin or someone posted it, many topics are neglected, like look at the links to my other topics in my signature, it's not like they're not bad topics, but no one replies

Am I the only one? Talk about it
This thread is totally epic.  just make more threads like this one...  see how many replies you got?  Its awesome.  seeee, you are doing awesome!    :))  :P

I think this one works better... seems more consistent... ?=Life Pendulum

Code: [Select]
5c5 5c5 5c5 5c5 5c5 7ac 7ac 7ac 7ac 7ac 7ak 7ak 7ak 7an 7an 7an 7an 7an 7bu 7bu 7bu 7bu 7n2 7n2 7n2 7n2 7n2 80h 80h 80h 80h 80h

i lost with this deck today.  i managed to get out 1 quinted epi flying staff, and 1 quinted flying staff without epi.  by then he blew up all my towers and pendulums, scrambled all my quanta and black holed... so i had 0 quanta.

i got him down to 33 hp, when my cards ran out.  maybe this deck would be better if you made it slightly larger by adding +1 to every card, so that even if you get only 1-2 staves out you can still win. 

during the game i really wanted some of those protect artifacts that you see in kobisjeruk's deck

but of course i don't have enough data to really compare the two decks...  i just know that i lost   :))
