Everyone please start posting your Academy decks!
« on: January 05, 2017, 07:32:12 PM »
It seems doubtful at this point that Academy competitive play is going to be a thing until the next two expansions come out. Therefore, there's no harm in sharing all your academy spellbooks, since keeping them secret won't confer any competitive advantage, and there aren't enough people playing Academy on Octgn for you to really get the chance to test them much. Furthermore, if we all post all of our custom Academy spellbooks, people who want to get into the game but dont have any idea what kinds of strategies there are will be able to see some of them and try them to get a better idea of what playing academy with custom decks is like, and also to maybe inspire them to come up with ideas of their own. Also, there aren't enough ideas for Academy decks out there for me to use in the fanfic im writing and I'm running out of leeway to avoid duels in story.

So I have decided to post all of the Academy decks I have designed which i think are decent or have the potential to become decent, and I encourage everyone else to do the same.

Thanks!

The thing is, unlike arena decks, we don't keep track of the decks. Before a game, we simply take 40 points (which can be done fairly fast) and start the game. After the game we clean everything up and put it in the box.

If i ever made academy books or played it i would. I just buy academy with the mindset of "its a small box expansion for arena". That is all i have ever used them for

Something I'm noticing that is kinda annoying and starting to look like a pattern, is that like a lot of times when I've posted about Academy, particularly if I say anything that implies that the game is tactically deep and not Arena-lite, one or more Arena-only players will barge in to the conversation to derail it by saying that they only play Arena, or to explicitly claim that Arena is "better" than Academy. Will you guys please stop doing that? I get it you don't like Academy. I would like to remind people that this thread isn't about whether you play Academy or not. It's about people who already play Academy and have made custom decks.  So unless you're claiming that no one here has built any custom decks for Academy at all besides myself and that I am unlikely to get any relevant responses, then what you just said is not relevant to this conversation, and I will kindly request you stay on topic, please?

Thanks!

Calm down Mr. Spock.

Yes, my intent was to say i dont have books built bc i dont play academy. Didnt say anything else. I do like the style of arena better.  Not saying its better, thats subjective, but just not my cup of tea. And i will not run your horse off the cliff any more with off topic nonsense :)

P.S.
I am actually very interested in the academy books that are posted and look at them all.

Back on topic - Academy books.

I've been playing some more Academy lately. It's a really fun game. I don't have any books I would be ready to call my own yet though. When that happens I'll make sure and post them.

Also I don't think other players mean any harm to Academy or you when they post they only focus on arena. (definitely not in this thread so far). They are trying to be apart of the conversation because we all try to support each other in this community.

Oh ok then. Maybe I misunderstood. Thanks for clarifying.
