"Scorched earth" Targaryen Deck

Recommended Posts

Anyone tried to make a competitive deck based on the "Scorched earth" card? Any success?

I'll try  to build one this week so if you have any advice, they're welcome!

With the exception of the advice "Don´t do it" ? ;-) Here´s why i think it´s a bad choice:

  1. Don´t count their strength doesn´t reduce the charachters strength to 0, so the usual Targ burn won´t work against charachters that don´t count their strength.
  2. You´ll need a lot of army charachters to take an advantage here, armies are usually expensive and so is scorched earth.
  3. If you have the initiative and go first you could at best squeeze out one unopposed challenge, well unless you have a lot of armies that could also happen to you if your opponent goes first.
  4. Since no matter how many scorched earth cards are on the table only the first challenge each round is effected by scorched earth, a player can easily work around the effect by declaring a weenie charachter for a challenge he couldn´t hope to win anyway.

I really can´t see how a reliable deck concept could be made with this card. Well you could try to win initiative let your opponent go first and play Questioned claim to probably nullify his whole challenge phase, but there are to many IFs in that combo for my taste. I would rather prefer to run flaming pitch tower instead and kill a charachter every round.

Thanks for your answer Ben.

It's my specialty to try out decks around one interesting but not very good card ^^

It's not meant to win tournaments, just to try something a bit different from the classic Targaryen Burn deck.

The idea is to defend the first rounds while building (with Scorched earth it's one challenge less for the opponent + Viserys/Aemon & Bones of a child) then Valar then put the good cards.

With Scorched earth + Armies + Flamepitch tower you can do some bad to your opponent, especially with your 2 claim plots (too bas they have low initiative).

I'll post my deck 1.0 soon ^^
