This is why reflector shouldn't be a thing

Postby jotto » Sat Mar 05, 2016 8:50 pm

As some of you know I've been on a crusade against ''do nothing'' decks that feel like your opponent is playing solitaire for 20 min, I just played against this:

he then used cata and gained life over 40 winning the game, to be honest from about turn 5 I stopped playing the game, I only was able to attack twice and between then I think I did 2 dmg in the last 6-7 turns of the game, the real question is why these types of decks keep poping up with different win cons, they all abuse reflector effectively locking people out from playing, to be honest I would rather concede and play 3 other games then watch someone draw their whole deck slowly looking for a way to win.

These decks are much more better than elves, is it not? They are fun, at least at one side of table. And elves are boring for both players.

I saw many reflector + Dragonfire or reflector + Word of Grace, but never seen Guards! Guards! before. Why?

Chalice or War Fanfares are unplayable in normal way. So why not to play them in this way?

As someone who used to play rage control, I switched to elves so I wouldn't have to deal with all the purple incarnate decks running around (at the time) in top 20. If you cannot deal with aggro decks, you're probably running something greedy. It's cool that there are creative decks that work out decently, but reflector decks are just soul crushingly annoying to play against. I think it would be fine if it was a legendary card.

His deck is beautiful. He should get some kind of reward for it :D I mean I get most ppl would not like to play against such a deck, but for me it would be a joy to see it in action ;)

Reflector is fine.

What is not fine is being able to copy the same spell several times over with multiple reflectors, cause that's when things just get silly.

I just started Spellweaver, so please bear with me here.

I looked up the cards and it seemed to me that all he can do with the Thaumic Reflector is to copy an (action) spell that was cast this round. So he can do it once per spell and Reflector. With Guards! Guards! he gets at most 10 1/1s. All of which can't attack this round.
Don't get me wrong: 10 1/1s can have quite a sting, but what impresses me, as a newbie, far more is the fact that he somehow managed to get 4 Thaumic Reflectors out with such an impressive amount of Mana, hand cards and (most of all) Life.
The journey seems far more interesting to me than how it ended.

Also, not every deck is good against every other deck – especially when you're only playing a single aspect. Since you're on a crusade against ''do nothing'' decks, I would suggest splashing a second color that deals with such strategies. Rage is great against artifacts, Order is good against Spells, Nature is good against both. Also, in this particular instance, Rage's Fireblast (3 damage to one creature, 1 to all creatures in the same line) would have been hilarious! :D
(Probably... Possibly... Maybe reasonably competent at the game.)
