Deck 1: Psiontal Massacre
Hover over cards for details, click for permalink
Deck import code : [Select]
61o 61o 61o 61o 61o 61o 61o 61t 61t 61t 61t 61t 61t 622 622 622 622 625 625 625 625 625 625 63a 63a 63a 63a 63a 63a 63a 8pu

This a very straight forward, simple, effective, and cheap deck to play. The whole idea of the deck is to get as many cards out of your hand before you use fractal on a psion, and fill the rest of your hand with them. Keep yourself alive with Dimensional Shields, while overpowering them with lightning damage. Now the pros and cons:
Pros:
Can only be stopped by Reflective shields, which aren't widely used anymore.
Dimensional shield stops everything except momentum, but with an included
lobotomizer in the deck that's no big deal.
Cons:
No permanent control, and is as well subject to it.
Over all a very solid deck though. (I use a deck that was based off this, but mine has a higher win rate, which I use for arena and pvp)
Second: Phase Dragon Rush:
Hover over cards for details, click for permalink
Deck import code : [Select]
61o 61o 61o 61o 61o 61o 61o 61o 61o 61o 61t 61t 61t 61t 61t 61t 61v 61v 61v 61v 61v 61v 63a 63a 63a 63a 63a 63a 63a 63a 8pu

(Note: Pendulums can be pillars)
This is a straight, mono-aether rush that focuses on making large amounts of quanta, playing all your dragons, and avoiding damage using chain of phase shields.
Pros:
High damage dealing once dragons are out, 8*6=42
Completely stops all damage except for momentum.
Cons:
Once again, no permanent control, as subject to.

Please note, I do not take credit for the original designs of these decks.

To me it looks most likely a mito-armagio deck with overdrive rather than a psiontal, but you know, I can be wrong.

Lulz. This and, even if you're free to post whatever deck you want, consider that most of all decks (99.9%) are already well known by the whole community.

Yes, these two decks are very commonly known. This post was more aimed at any guests or new guys coming to the forums looking for a half blood deck.

You mean something like this? http://elementscommunity.org/forum/community-recommended-decks/
Yes, these two decks might have already been added to that though. These decks I posted are merely decks I have used in the past, and shared it for whoever didn't know about this deck.

Hey, if this thing is a beastly silver/gold grinder, it's a beastly AI4 grinder.
Yeah, it's slightly slower.
But it's funny to watch your enemies kill themselves.
It's also upgraded...


I will admit, the recommended decks section is both really old, kinda outdated and somewhat disorganised.
I wouldn't mind seeing a rejuvenation of it in some form.


What I would recommend if you want to continue this is to find the stats for the decks (Should be in farming studies and statistics) and post them. Generally, decks want to be fast and have a good win rate, or really fast with a mweh win rate.

BTW, lack of Permanent Control isn't really a problem for Psiontal. Psions ignore shields (except reflectives, which PC can't beat anyways), and has enough late-game power to burst through healing or other troublesome perms. Of course Permanent control in th hands of your opponent is harsh.

Also, AI4 randomly generates its decks, so the usage of reflective shields isn't the matter. The thing with reflective shields is that the AI always replaces a lower cost shield with a higher one when it can, and both reflective shields have a higher cost shield in their element. So most of the time when a reflective shield plops down, it's gone in 2 turns. Exploiting this flaw is what makes psiontal such a good grinder ;)
When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.
