Got 1 Star from FM 3 times and knocked all the way back down to 0. On a 5 Game losing streak atm.
Finally got it, pretty fun deck!
It seems that this deck is vulnerable to backline sweeper cards like Eagle Claw or Strategic Bombing, at least until turn 5 when you play We Can Do It. (one of em is an elite card tho). Do you have any tips concerning that matchup?
I constructed this deck with those removal cards in mind. Keep in mind that removal is only effective if it actually removes units. Many of the artillery I chose have 3 or 4 hp to survive hits from Eagle Claw. The only ones that don't are katyusha (which you should generally play as removal to get value from it), and the 2 45mm anti-tank guns placed for the aggro matchup. You can also use buffs from 17th infantry regiment to give you a little extra health to survive those removal orders if need be. We can do it can also frequently be played before strategic bombing due to their kredit costs (and the fact that you have 3 copies of it to their 1). The deck has the tools to deny value from those removal orders as long as you remember to keep them in mind and play around them.
That being said, with the unexpected nerf to 12th infantry this patch, I would probably look to replace them with something else.
Thanks for the reply. Maybe I'm just a wee bit wary because of my recent matchups against US/GER ramp to Tiger/Leopold/B-17 decks. They usually have lots of backline sweeper in hand, and due to their ramp being able to play multiples of em to run me out of threats. Since I don't have the 12th Inf. Rgt. anyway, I'm thinking of filling the spot with cheap US airplane like the F4F (any version) or maybe sub the A-20 with Patriotic Firestorm to seal the game
I went on a 15 game run with exactly what you have here. I was playing it sort of wrong, you really have to hammer the HQ.
Scientiavore, thanks for sharing this awesome deck. Got 5 wins in a row and also FM.
Those low rarities decks from you are really something else. Cheers mate from Brazil.
Which Specials would you add? I'm thinking T-80 could be a good fit. Maybe Mobilization for resource extension or Enemy Spotted for turnaround potential.
