This one is running Blessings instead of Phoenix and skips the control cards. Fun to play for a few games.

Well this multiple entry thing happened to me aswell.

I´m not switching the PC or anything and just play the game whenever i feel like it.
At the end of a session i tend to submit the score (usually once a day).

This worked out without much problems untill i submitted a score that was below the last submitted score (after a false god session for example -> then i got an additional entry).
So i avoided doing that, but recently multiple entries showed up for "no reason" during the last couple days.
I am using Firefox and i made it clear cookies etc. after each session (window closed) so i guess that could have to do with it.
Guess i should just submit only once a week till this is fixed.

I totally understand the people who should be in the list, but aren´t because of this.
It kinda beats the purpose of a "high score list" when you update it just once a week though.

This is a slightly different version i had some fun with.
Your pretty much massing :time Nymphs with the help of a :water Nymph or two.

Turtle Shield + SoGs usually buy you enough time to go all the way. While the :time Nymphs are also providing some nice card draw.

In the upped version the Vampires are the main damage dealers.You would have to adjust a bit to make up for the lack of damage (maybe replace a few Vamps with Dragons).Dusk Shields + Bonds cost is quite a lot higher unupped and you would lack the speed of upped Towers so i can´t really reccoment a unupped version without some major changes.

arf sorry i made a big mistake with the stats. I was tracking the card count (+ eventual rewinds), but forgot to check who won the coinflip and thus the stats are inaccurate.
It should be a lot slower since some of the turn3 wins are actually turn4 wins and so on.Sorry bout that.

(yes FIRE mark - not :earth, this is essential to play stuff on turn2 if you don´t get a land in your opening hand)

Call me Nuts all you want for just playing 2 Towers and 4 upped Dragons  - everybody knows they are too slow.
Well i can tell you that it works and it is the fastest thing i´ve been playing for a while.

Don´t get fooled by no-tower hands, thats gonna happen quite often and you still gonna win on turn5 most of the time.
Remember to play 1 Dragon over 2 Golems and don´t be shy to sacrifice a Golem to play a Dragon - other than the usual Golem Rush you can´t really "pump" the Golems and Dragons are always the better choice.

When you are at 4 :fire and have to decide to play a Phoenix or wait a turn to cast a Golem you should usually wait for the Golem (unless the Phoenix would kill next turn if you play it now).
Just do the math a couple times and you won´t have to think much once you´ve played the deck a few dozen times since the same scenarios repeat over and over again.


Stats after a small 50 win testrow against ai3. (51 games, 1 lost)

-> edit
I´m an idiot. The stats are off by quite a lot because i use to count the cards left as an indicator for the turns (+/- rewinds etc) , so the deck is a lot slower than i made it look like.

Turn3 - 5
Turn4 - 11
Turn5 - 21
Turn6 - 13
Turn10 - 1

TTW: 4.96

I know 50 games sample is nothing.I estimate the "real" ttw to be around 5.2

I´ve lost one game so far against a very early Maxwell Deamon / Devourer / Discord combo.A very early Fire Buckler lead to that 10 turn game (without that the ttw would have been at 4.88 but since the sample is so small that seemed to be just unrealistic).
I´ve played around 30 games before i started tracking the stats with excell and those 2 scenarios didn´t came up before.Its theoreticly possible to start with a one Tower hand and don´t draw a Cremate for a few turns,chances are slim but that would obviously slow you down.

I´m updating the list whenever i setup a farm or change back to a grinder.
So "Salbei" should always be updated (+/- 5 mins). I´m usually asking on chat for farm requests before i go offline or take a break.

Really doesn´t take too much time to update your status now with that "autocolor" thing.

Thanks again for adding this.

Guess you could cut the 2nd Eclipse if you feel you need even more heal, but i highly doubt that you are ever going to need it.

This is my current top50 grinder. Its not the fastest deck in terms of TTW, but i can safly say its EM rate is just ridiculous (even against AI3 rush decks) and that makes up for it.

The ammount of clicks needed per turn is the absolute minimum - no activated abilities or targeting, just click if something blinks in your hand and that was your turn.

Here are the three steps to success :
1)play Towers
2)play Pests 
3)play what blinks after that

You should spend more time waiting for your opponent than with your actual turn, its that easy.

Its TTW is definatly not the fastest, but at the current Score/E system you should be more than even in terms of Score/E gain (less spins in the same timeframe though) compared to the usual top50 rush deck.

Every game you (EM) win in less than 10 turns you are one game ahead of the average "rush" - and trust me the EM rate is just nuts.
Every game you don´t EM or need more than 10 turns you fall behind.
Simmilar to a Rol/Hope deck you should notice when the game is lost and can bail out early to safe some time (Dim Shield chain with lots of Hourglasses , early huge Oty etc),but you should safly beat the most popular rush decks without much trouble.

Overall i´m very happy with the result. Don´t really want to add a winratio since t50 decks are changed so frequently and the stats are next to pointless after like 5 ppl change their decks.

Here are a couple Screenshots:

Flying Eternities EM

Flying Eternity Stall failing to Eternity loop and decks out ...

Dune Scorps EM

Dune Scorpion deck failing to get Momentum out

Mono Darkness EM

Mono Darkness Deck - well its just a fail :P

and my favorite:

Golem Rush EM

Now thats hillarious - Golem Rush failing at getting me below 100 hp.

the oh so popular Life Rush EM

Slightly outhealed the Life Rush ....
