As the first voted-on caster of the Tour de Cryx, I was excited to get him to a tournament and put Sturgis through the paces. That is not to say that I was excited to play Sturgis – I was decidedly not, but I had just gotten a win with him the other week – by sheer luck and force of will, so I hoped maybe I wouldn’t completely tank the tournament!
When I started the Tour de Cryx, I was pretty sure I would enjoy most of it. One of the portions I was looking least foward too, though, were the weaker casters. I wanted to get some playtime with the mid tiers, as they generally have interesting interactions, before moving onto the terrible casters. Sadly, I then asked the internet what I was going to play. They were relatively kind – They could have picked Deneghra 2. Instead they picked Sturgis. Two games in, what do I think about him? Lets take a look.
Last weekend – as I am writing this – I was able to attend an awesome event in Delware at The Icehouse. A 25 man tournament, with 32 slots, run over 2 days with tons of prizes. Competitive players were everywhere, and most games I heard of were awesome – I know all 4.5 of mine were!
The first of the True Tour de Cryx casters has been completed, a couple weeks behind schedule, but still within a viable timeframe. I want to take a look at my overall thoughts, performance and how he worked for me over the course of all the games.
In my journey to play each caster 5 times, I’ve not really kept pace. Hopefully, though, I’ll be able to Catch up. I’ve made my 4th game with Scaverous, and figured I’d drop a battle report for it real quick. (ha, you all know my Battle reports are long and unwieldy)
Its been a while since I’ve had a game – more than I like, honestly, and I am gearing up for a tournament this weekend so I figured I would go through and start looking at the casters I expect to see on the board. While I might not hit every point, I do want to have in my mind what type of matchups I’m looking at, even though I know i’ll just as likely discard them the day of. So, lets take a look!
Tour de Cryx Caster #1 – Scaverous Mid Set Thoughts
I’m very likely to make it a pattern, because I like patterns, of writing about the caster after I hit the three game mark, as it gives me time to think on the list that I settled on and see how it has panned out over a few games before trying to tweak it majorly. So, What do I think After Three games of Scaverous?
On Feb 4th, I played in my first tournament of the year, and I was stoked going into it. I’d not played in a competitive environment since around December, and I was looking forward to putting Scaverous on the table for the first time. I’d paired him with Skarre 2, because I knew a friend of mine was not going to be at the tournament, so the chances of a lethal Kara Sloan list was pretty low. It was a quick three rounder. Each rounds recap after the break!
I decided that I would let the community interact with my list building, and this is what I’ve gotten. After the Poll that ran for a week, The Largest percentage of the populous picked, surprising no one familiar with the internet, Sturgis 2.
Every once in a while, the timelines of when I am going to do events and when I write won’t exactly mesh. During those times, I’m just gonna try and write up what I need to and get it out. So, here we go! Scaverous – First Look.
