Graviton Fire Eater
Graviton Fire Eater is in many ways similar to Fire Spirit, having the same ability and ability casting cost. While the unupgraded version is better than Fire Spirit in terms of health, it requires a duo. Upgraded, Fire Spectre starts with 2|3 stats for 3 while Graviton Firemaster has 0|6 for 1 .
- When upgraded, gains 1hp and 1 less cost
- Almost a version of Fire Spirit with small differences
As mentioned above, the best way to explain this card would be to compare it to Fire Spirit. Graviton Fire Eater is Gravity's grower, able to amount lots of damage if given enough time to grow attack. The biggest distinction between Graviton Fire Eater and other growers is the sturdiness it possesses (5hp unupped, 6 if upped) and it's cheap cost. It's insanely cheap cost of 1 upgraded is especially helpful in making it the fastest grower to be able to hit the field.
Graviton Fire Eater's cheapness should instantly bring a close link with cards like Nova or Immolation. Immolation in particular is a great card to combine with Graviton Fire Eater since it produces at least 6 , enough to provide a single fire eater for nearly an entire game's worth of quanta for growing. Most Immolation based decks will often put more of a focus on other cards like Lava Golems or Phoenixes, but players might find Graviton Fire Eater a place to put unused as well as to make use of more .
Gravity is known for very bulky and slow creatures, so it might take a while before Acceleration can be cast on one of its expensive creatures. Graviton Fire Eater is both the cheapest creature that Gravity possesses, but it's relatively sturdy 5|6 hp means that the fastest accelerator for mono Gravity is an accelerated Graviton Fire Eater. Disregarding its ability completely, Graviton Fire Eater can be seen as pure early-game acceleration fodder, something that mono gravity seems to lack. At the gain of 2 (3 if upped) attack per turn, no is needed at all to keep Graviton Fire Eater growing at the same pace as it would be with a steady pump of fire quanta.
Gravity has quite a strong tie with Fire with this card, and Rage Potion (not its upgraded counterpart) can be combined with Graviton Firemaster, the upgraded version of fire eater. Not only would such a deck that carries both carry destructive CC, but it would also have the extra edge of being able to cast it on Firemaster, gaining an instant 5 attack at the cost of making it a glass cannon. This sacrifice of defense and more attack over time (an accelerated Firemaster would have more attack after 5 turns than a raged one) for pure instant offense is a key characteristic of Fire, and should not be overlooked when considering how Firemaster can continue to grow, making it a very potent but fragile killer.
Other Cards With Synergy
Firemaster's 6hp might make it blocked by Gravity Shield, so Momentum can be considered, as well as Deflagration. Once this creature gains a high enough attack, Liquid Shadow can be considered to create a strong vampire. 0 starting attack also means Butterfly Effect can be considered. Finally, in mono gravity it can be used as either Catapult fodder or sacrificed with Gravity Pull to act as a cheap but relatively sturdy (compared to other creatures of the cost) shield.
While overshadowed by other cards like Lava Golem and Sapphire Charger, Graviton Fire Eater can play a useful role in gravity/fire duos or in Immolation decks based on their cheap cost. In fact, one very popular False God, Graviton, uses Graviton Fire Eaters very powerfully.
