Getting owned in Wagic. Lesson 1: Depletion
One of the things I enjoy the most in Wagic is when the AI surprises me with extremely clever moves.
The AI in Wagic is driven by randomness, logic, and a bit of revenge. It basically “learns” which cards in your deck are a threat to it, and tends to target these cards more than others with its spells.
Today I got owned in something like 6 turns by the AI deck Depletion, and the moves were so good I have to talk about them.
On its first turn, the AI cast “Tome scour” on me, making me moving 5 cards from my library to my graveyard.
Unfortunately, the best card of my deck was in there: Ob Nixilis, the Fallen. That card is sooo unbalanced that it’s a great game finisher.
On its second turn, the AI cast Animate Dead on my beloved creature.
3 turns later, I was dead. (On top of the AI’s excellent moves, I had a very crappy starting hand, but even without it, such a powerful creature on turn 2…what can you do?)
Owing to its “revenge” mechanism, the AI in Wagic can be extremely good against combo decks, or, in my case, decks that mostly rely on one card to win
If you have good stories about the AI owning you in a way that seemed “clever” don’t hesitate to share them
