I played wraith form in my most recent run. Had two of them actually , and ice cream to make it less bad. I lost on the third map, couldn’t draw enough defence. I think it’s a cool card once it gets going, though obviously the cost is tough. What if it did 4/6 damage instead of 3/5?
I did have a bullet time run. Don’t remember how far I got with it. It seemed an ok card though silent doesn’t have a lot of high costs for it to reduce.
Is clothesline that ironclad card that weakens the enemy? I’ve never tried it. It’s just not something I think I would need. 2 cost spells are hard to use anyway, even Bash.
Uppercut falls into the same category. It seems like it could only be more useful than clothesline if the enemy was already vulnerable and you just wanted to extend the duration. Or if you upgrade it. I don’t like searing blow - if a card is already bad, I don’t want to have to spend upgrades on it.
Sometimes I wonder about cards like twin strike and cleave. They’re good early, but won’t carry you in the late game, even if you end up in the ideal build for them. Makes some interesting decisions.
Noxious fumes is hard to nerf. You can’t change the poison amount or it wouldn’t get anywhere. Making it cost 2 to cast could work, but is that too much? I guess I’d still play it.
I’ve never used bane. Dedicated poison decks don’t have room for it and don’t need it. Nor have I used corpse explosion.
I’ve never used riddle with holes. Silents don’t have any strength gain. Maybe I’d use it if I had relics that added strength.
It’s funny how the recent small nerf to tools of the trade has had me ignoring it when I used to rate it highly.
I always wanted to use bandage up on a silent, but only ever find it late enough in the game that it doesn’t matter any more. Energy becomes more important and lifegain less, the higher you get. You’re more likely to lose life in big chunks on higher floors. Bloodletting is not a good card for the first map, but worth taking so you have it for the third.
I’ve got Girya before but never used it
