An extended Wall in front of the tree would also shut down the 2x Fireball attack, effectively wasting your opponent's turn.

Plus if the attack failed to kill the tree it'll be back up to full in a few rounds (with a wall in front of it to protect it for a while), and you'd be out 16 mana.

Overall it's not a great strategy.

Don't forget the Burns on the Tree and the Wildfire Imp..........the Druid will not like the tool box of the new Warlock....

If the 2byFireball is successful and the tree is burnt down early, I find that most of the time the Druid is really at a disadvantage and will Fall quite easily......

The burns aren't likely to kill the tree, since you can regenerate it and transfer 2 damage to your mage before taking the Burn damage.

My point is that it's an easily countered strategy (throw up any wall that blocks LoS, cast an Intercept creature turn 1, etc.) that puts you in a horrible position if it doesn't work. It's effective if it works, though I think the risk of failure is too high.

We can do oh yeah and then I will do this all day long. Yes it is very wise for the Druid to take into consideration Flame attacks but once you start doing these items you are really taking the Druid from being offensive early to being defensive early, which in a Flame heavy book will not be to her advantage.

(Just thought of this) - Rolling Fog and a Wand with Flameblast attached will be quite nasty....

Vine Tree is Epic so you can't have two in your spellbook.

Also correct me if I am wrong but I believe walling off your Vine Tree would mean that it can no longer cast spells using the Vine markers since there is no longer LoS between them, so that seems like pretty bad advice to me.

U can use bloodspine walls which don't block LOS and then your can't wall off your tree.
Jedi vs that orc guy from L of the R, wow what a mix,... i wonder if AW would consider Dhalsim a mage.

If you set up the wall like this:

X  X  X
X  X  X
X  X  X
V  Y  Y

Then your tree still has LoS to the 'Y' spaces, allowing you to cast vines there from it. It's not ideal, but it's better than having no tree. Against Warlock it might be worth going into a defensive posture and waiting it out though. The best thing about the Druid is that she's so dynamic; switching from offensive to defensive or vice versa is much easier than with other mages.

If double fireball became common though, Guardian Angels would probably find their way into more Druid books.

U can use bloodspine walls which don't block LOS and then your can't wall off your tree.

That doesn't prevent a double fireball at the tree.

hello budies, im not sure, but what new disable condition does? i dont remember if it was said before.

"Disable is a condition that temporarily prevents an object from functioning. If an object has        one or more Disable markers on it, it is Disabled. Disabled objects lose all attack bars, action bars, and non-trait abilities. (An ability is anything in the cardís text box, except what defines ďXĒ              for cards that have an attribute or mana cost dependent on X.) It does not lose any of its        attributes or itís subtypes (attributes include Life, Armor, Defenses and Channeling). Each Reset       Phase, remove one Disable marker from each object, unless that Disable marker was placed   during that Ready Stage. For objects with multiple Disable markers on them, remove only one each Reset Phase. Disable does not have a removal cost and cannot be removed by spells or             abilities which remove condition markers."

Hmm, that "disable" leaves armor values of the "object" untouched leads me to a speculation, that disable tokens would be also applicable on conjurations or creatures. Maybe a frost will "disable" stuff.

If you are frozen, you cannot act, but also you didnt loose your armor values.

So, siren will freeze stuff?

I can tell you that since Disable affects objects yes we do have other cards we have been working on that use it. Do not know how long till the are release ready  8)
