Has anyone figured out any truly viable uses for a full grail suite?
I love the concept and mechanics of the Grail set, but I can’t seem to make it work.
I’ve been trying out a Foundry build with amazon industrial complex, but it folds under any amount of full rig pressure and cant muster the influence or economy to play full fast advance.
I’m starting to test out NBN builds (NEH and TWISY) with midway station but even with tag storms and meat damage support I feel like it cant create a real scoring server that is any better than spending the 9 influence and 11 card slots (2 Excalibur) .
The suite has a huge number of advantages: Triple subroutines, moderate strength, low-ish costs, broad subrotine effects.
But I’m having trouble overcoming the flaws and costs: Use of influence, hand slots, deckslots, and need of supporting cards to make the most of those broad effects.
What are your experiences with Grail since the release of Merlin and Excalibur? What are the main hurdles you see when using them and how do you overcome them?
And What ID do you think has the most potential to bring the grail ice to bear?
