"Okay, I think Force has it backwards. Sure, some cards are great to have on you against C Wing
, but that's only cards that negate his damage somehow (Kenny Sigma
) or do so much damage that you don't care (Kolos
or General Cr
). So you better be lucky with your hand, or else C Wing
will eat you."
You don't need to be lucky to know that an early advantage is an early advantage. I'd gladly give you a 6 damage or a poison or a good life gap or pillz reduction compared to the 2 that I'll take anytime any day. Put yourself in an advantage compared to the life gap or damage you can inflict on the sacrificed C Wing
and the C Wing
owner will have problems of his own. How can a -2 life eat me? really? unless there's a 1 hitter there which of course I'll already be expecting..Kolos
? Already expected. Already prepared. And you say there aren't many cards to list? Actually, staples in decks already pose a problem for C Wing
. Even Jessie
would nullify this card and instead of taking 2 life, it is nullified and you'd be the one taking 2 life. Would your C Wing
take a 9 damage from Avola
readily? Even if you have Kolos
, the Montana
user will probably have a Spiaghi
or an Ottavia
or a Uranus
or SOA, etc. So what use is Kolos
really? You say there are 8 damagers? Then you'd already expect them to fury or at least pill 1 or a little more or hit hard instead of using fury. Again. Slightly predictable. For one, C Wing
needs to be lucky as well and needs to have a heavy hitting company in your hand so he can be used effectively but then again your heavy hitter will already be expected by your opponent when they see both in your hand.
As for Naginata
"they aren't smiling so much as scratching their head. They are simply reduced from their current position as pill forcers, and are blocked from reaching full potential."
Really?! You seriously think so?! -5 opponent pillz and 7 heavy damage and Naginata
will be the one scratching her head when the owner will be taking only 2 life and you gain a pill which will also be reduced by Naginata's ability? Seriously?
? Not only do you get to take 6 damage reducing your life in half, you also probably get poisoned and your pillz reduced. And for what? For 2 life points taken away from me? Ah yes, I get it now, Naginata
will be scratching their heads thinking "Hmm..ah well..he freely accepted a heavy hit, not my problem, deal with it."
"Force Majeure are you being serious right now...he is all and mighty C Wing
as a filler in a La Junta
or fang pi deck =A FULL DECK OF Kolos
!!!!!! even deadly with Kolos
because they have GREAT power and abilities and with Ambre
in there its over all you have to do is lose the first round with him"
No, I don't have it backwards, to use C Wing
at full effect, a player must lose first. You just don't attack with a 6 power card with no modifiers so you get to nullify a nuke card with a bluff. GHEIST
, All Stars
, etc. easily kills this 6 power card. 6 power? no problem, that card is a sitting duck waiting to get sacrificed to cards with nasty abilities. Again, in order for the -2 life and + pill to happen, it means you must take a hit first. If his ability was -2 life min. 0 then yes, I'll gladly accept that he's an almighty broken card. But at his current state? No. And another no, a wise player won't overpill or put less pillz against that card knowing it might just be a bluff, a wise player would put sufficient pillz to get his attack through to get the advantage or you waste enough pillz for his measly 3 damage. 6 power is not much, even a few pillz on a bomb card and C Wing
will have problems bluffing in trying to kill a nuke card. Either way C Wing
is easily defeated and the point is it will hurt you first and it might hurt bad more than it can help. IMO, 2 life and a pill is just not worth taking a free hit..specially when a player has damage reducers in hand to expect the next move of the C Wing
for the C Wing
combo finisher? Hello damage reducer. Hello SOA.
"all you have to do is lose the first round with him"
Yeah..lose a first round to a Kolos
by taking a free hit. Good tactic there. Not the only one with the Kolos
or lose to a first round life gainer then defend so the C Wing
owner gets problems finishing off things making him predictable.
or lost to a first round pillz reducer to get the C Wing
owner in a pillz disadvantage.
or poison your opponent and defend with your DRs.
"just fury your 8 damage"
Yeah, assuming your opponent is also willing to take a hit. Who would be willing to take a free hit?
