That wouldn't be for everybody =/ I started playing not long ago and don't really have enough cards to spare for Infernal Pit.

Who said DA is the card for everybody? It's one of the most wanted card in the game. Even if it would show in Infernal Pit in some special event it would surely cost a lot od cards to sacrifice...

That's the point. Not enough cards + Limited time event = People spend money.

I'd join if there was an incentive.

Those kinds of events are always fun.

I think beating developers in their own game will be pretty sweet. Cant wait, lol.

Hopefully, they will bring a good deck to the tournament. And by that, I dont mean a Nergal deck :D

Heh..

But aside from that, it's kind of bland on its own; just playing vs the developers...

I do like the idea of "beating the developers at their own game", though. http://forums.savage2.com/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif

There is no signing up through Facebook. You just go to practise mode and play against friends. You will see developers there.

As per tradition, here's mine.

Guys, I was fascinated by this deck. If you ever encounter a deck that isn't meta played by the Devs I'd love to hear it.

http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/5008/devgiullaume.jpg

He was using Garant, and from what I understood the goal of this deck was to stall for time and slowly chip away at the opponent's health using burn cards.

A nice twist he used was Throne of Renewal, to return all of my creatures to the hand, followed by a Tower of Oblivion, damaging me based on my hand size.

I won thanks to 3 Paos, which he admitted to being the weakness of this deck.

I'd love to see a twist on this deck in the current meta.

I also really enjoyed that duel, so GG. ;)

Of course they're easy to beat. They don't play nearly as much as we do.

Part of the fun in these games is the discrepancy between the developers direct contact with the crew behind the mechanics of the game, which arguably know more about the game and its cards than anyone, versus their inexperience playing the actual game.

This often leads to some very creative ideas!

"Hello, Thanisse.
By beating the developers at their own game, you have divided by 0 and broke our rules. You will now be ban-hammered. Have a nice day."

Actually, as a matter of fact, Thanisse did not.
Unlike all those who posted the screens in this thread. ;)

I'm watching a recording (http://www.twitch.tv/matrix_disc/b/349955573) of Matrix_Disk's stream of the event (you can check it out if you missed it).

More importantly, I'm posting this because I really liked Dev_Louis's deck around 28:00 minutes in. (This is when the strategy starts becoming apparent)
It works by using cards like Avalanche and Throne of Renewal to wipe the board and keep it clean, with a combination of big brutes past that point to take full control of the board.

It works similar to prison OTK, though is more control orientated. I really enjoyed that.

Also, I am mentioning these decks because I think they are creative and fear they could be forgotten otherwise, and I honestly think a variant therefore could be used in the meta, as well.

They're creative and charming decks based on solid ideas. I like 'em. Very much so. ;)

There was also a creative Nergal deck used by Dev_Christophe involving around Tower of Oblivion, Throne of Renewal, Cosmic Realignment, Stone Shield, Shantiri Ruins, Celebrations, Altar of Shadows, Broken Bridge, etc. It works as a mill deck. No creatures.

Hell, I fear to write more cause I know it will be a top deck when top players gather more cards. Just know that Stone Shield or Celestial Armor will be key in Tower of Oblivion combo decks.
