    Default Tournament Decks Played

    I know that the Tournament scene is still just budding for Summoner Wars, but now that I've been to four, I figured I'd share what I've played. This thread isn't just for me though, I'd like to see many others share what they've used and had varying degrees of success with.

    List out all of the commons and Champions, but the walls and events are assumed once you list the Summoner.

    Like this:

    You don't necessarily need to do that many breakdowns, but I thought it might be interesting.

    If you don't make any changes at all to a deck, something like Prince Elien [Stock] is probably sufficient.

    I need to update this signature. While I do that, go listen to A Doug's Guide to Summoner Wars - the podcast!

    Impressive record, Jex. Then again I wouldn't expect any less from you. I like that Defender redistribution you had on that first deck.

    Hopefully, there will be some tournaments over in the West Coast

    Plane tickets from Chicago are pretty expensive.

    Thanks. I really like Defenders as I like to control the flow and movement of units, and they do that even better than simply being in the way. Gamjuven's splashing of Guardsmen doesn't seem like a bad idea, but I'm still not sure if I like it better than my defenders.

    I'm really interested to see what people do over time. I realize that I was saying a lot elsewhere that I don't anticipate deck building to be as important as it is in some other games, but I do think that players will tailor decks to their style. I still stand by my assertion that getting two of everything is more than enough, and that for the vast majority of players, 1 is plenty.

    Now that I've won a tournament with two of my favorite factions, I think I'll move on to others.

    Except for Krung, that's pretty much what i would do for an Orc deck. I would put a Charger just for the lulz (since Orcs have puppies, not lolcats).
