I am really needing to find a new deck that I can use to effectively farm Half Bloods. I've tried a couple of different decks that have been suggested and none of them seem to work for me, I'm not sure if there is a strategy that I'm not seeing or just plain old bad draws. Since I usually play this game while I'm work I would really love something that is easy to remember and effective at the same time. Anyone have any advice or decks that are effective that I could create? I really don't have shards and I don't have Nymphs, so those would be the real limiting factor.

Thanks,
Mac

Hiya, and welcome to the forums (since this is your first post).

I'll try and address all your queries...

Since you haven't indicated where these deck recommendations came from, I'd suggest you start by looking here. See if your card pool can handle anything there.

For a particular strategy to a deck, you'd have to post the deck itself. I can't say much else, since there are many decks which can grind AI4, and I won't list all of them here.

Once you get to know a deck, you would be aware when a bad draw occurs, so it's likely not that - unless you played just a few games with it.

You don't have to "remember" any deck, when you want to use it. Simply copy the deck code from the game, onto a text document, and label it (like; Mono-Death, Time-Triple, Creature Rainbow, My Current HB Grinder, etc.). Then you can choose whichever you want - when you want. Later on, if you want to organize them better, you can use the Deck Manager, under Elements Tools.

For anyone to suggest a deck to you, we have to have an idea of your (current) card pool. Which ones are upped, how many, etc. Take a look at the thread I pointed to above, and gauge what you can reasonably make there. Not all cards need to be upped, but it helps tremendously against Half-Bloods (un-upped decks can grind Bronze arena fairly well though).

You don't have shards nor nymphs; then I would suggest you start farming the arena for some shards, namely Bronze. It is easier than farming Half-Bloods, by the way. Nymphs will come, eventually, through the daily Oracle fortune spins.

Hey,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the information that you provided. I went ahead and bookmarked the Elements Tools so that I can use/reference it when I need to. I also went through that list of decks that you suggested I look at and found a deck that seems to work decently.

The deck that I am currently using as my primary is a completely upped version of Psion Fractal Massacre (aka Psiontal) by Hazardus10

My Experience With This Deck: This deck is great if you're looking for simple strategy. Despite not having any kind of creature control or permanent control, I was usually able to dispatch my opponent before he could get the upper hand. Since I am using the upped version, the deck moves even faster than it did before given the right cards at the right time. The only real problem that I felt like I was having was always being 1 Quantum short when I needed it, this would cause me to have to halt the rotation so I could use Fractal again, and then I would end up wasting the extra Quantum.

I've started using Midnight Sun by ColorlessGreen

My Experience With This Deck: I haven't had the chance to try and upgrade any of the cards for this deck just yet. Normally I'll use the deck to farm out the coins and upgrade cards as I go along, but so far this deck seems to have brought me nothing but trouble. I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong, or if there are some changes that can be made to help flush this deck out. I was really hoping that I would be able to continue farming the arena with this deck, I may end up having to put that on hold while I try to figure out if this deck is even going to be usable against NPC decks.
