Even though the sky and birds have for a long time only existed in the pictures of the old battered encyclopedias of Riotspolis University, that hasn't stopped young Archimedes wanting to fly. But a simple hot air balloon was a long way from satisfying his desires in terms of maneuverability. Fortunately, at that time, Doctor Copernica Senior had theorized about a new type of fuel and Archimedes helped him create the first propulsion system that didn’t explode on ignition. Time has since gone by and now that the sky is within reach of the engineer, he has gone beyond all bounds of common sense with his latest creation: the “Hypermedes” Zeppelin powered by liquid thermonium, that is unauthorized by the Alma Mater!

It was during recent work on the new Clint City subway line that the underground shelter, housing Riotspolis, was drilled apart. This Utopian city, dreamt up by wise men at the turn of the century, could now wave goodbye to its tranquility and isolation. Unsurprisingly upset by this turn of events, the Riotsville Council, led by the Patriarch Pericles, decided that the time had come for them to at last emerge from their isolation and impose their “wise rulings” on this barbaric bunch of hoodlums inhabiting the surface.

    Archimedes. Our underground pilot.

    Pros:
    8 Power mixed with pill manipulation? Yes please! Second serving too!
    + pillz not - pillz
    Bonus and ability blend well together.

    Cons:
    5 Damage.
    SOA will make that 5 damage feel worse, I dont usually mention obvious SOA. Since this is a pill gaining wall, worth a mention.
    1 power and 3 damage from grouchy isnt a huge jump for 3 more stars. Feels like they do the same job...

    Im sure many will dislike this card because we like our 5* to either do lots of damage or be tricksy and offensive.
    But I have played Riots alot. And I LOVE Grouchy. I know how he works with the clan.
    Lets face it, Riots are currently surviving by walling or gaining you single pillz in half decks. This guys does just that.
    In Elo, I dont have too much hope for this guy, but perhaps Octana will see even less play now.

    Nice card, just hard to see a spot where Archimedes will fit in. Even in T2.
    Im gonna test him anyway cuz im a pill addict. Specially +pillz. I sprinkle +pillz on my cereal in the morning.
    Happy gamingsmiley

    I don't know...... if he was 8/6 instead of 8/5 he'd be really good but he feels average in his current state.

    Good first round card in T2, otherwise just a worse version of Corvus

    Archimedes- 8/5 +2 pillz & another pill regardless.

    - 8 power. 8 is still the magic number.
    - +3 pillz is good.

    - 8 may still be the magic number, but Pericles really laughs at him.
    -5 damage? Abhorrent.
    - 5* is a lot, especially with his low damage and his clans low damage

    8/10 for 5*. 6.5/10 for his clan. Archimedes can do what Norma, Octana, and Alexandrea cannot: win. In some people's eyes, attack manip is like free pillz. Inversely, Archimedes is like +16 attack. If you would put 5 pillz on Archimedes, you should use 7. He's a very particular card that you do not low ball and hope to get rewards. He's a card you hit with come back to normal. That said, Grace is almost always a better option. Grouchy can do his job as well, but specifically in the 5* category, Archimedes has advantages over his peers, he's simply out done by his lower star alternatives, for most.

    First it was Pericles, now we got Archimedes...
    I see what you did there.
    Power: 8
    Damage: 5
    Ability : +2 Pilz

    Well having a 9/5 5 star with this ability would be okay.
    But being 8/5 +2 Pillz just makes this 5 star not such good.
    It' s not a bad or useless card in my opinion, T2 has a place for such cards, but due to the high competition, when you have to use 25 stars max, if you wanna invest 5 stars to a card, you want it to be a killer. And Archimedes can't play that role.
    HIf that was an 8/1, same ability with 3 stars, it could be useful as bluff caller. But now what?
    It takes a 5/10 from me, good job!

    How do you guys not love him!!! 8/5 great stats with a +3 pillz or defeat +1 pillz! That is amazing! 9/10 easily deserving to be in any riots or riots split deck! Underpriced and underrated.

    I love how most people seem to underestimate this card, big time.

    Obviously this card will most likely not be replacing Pericles or Dr Copernica anytime soon.

    This card is basically a Riots version of Dalhia Cr. That 8 PWR plus 3 pillz is pretty devastating. This card allows you to go in big to out-pill that guy you think went with 9 pillz on Round 1... and not think twice about it. Of course his DMG is low, but you've got Norma, Pericles, or Dr Copernica in a mono-T2 deck to potentially set you up. Definitely splash-able, too.

    Is he the best? Not by a long shot, but if I'm going against a round 1 El Matador, this is the card I want to have in my hand (especially if I'm running a Morphun deck).

    Why? why are we getting another 5 star? I've waited months for another riots card and this is what they get? A terrible 5 star? We have a stupid amount of 5 stars already. What about people that play t1? We need utility, we need 2/3 stars. How the hell do they keep pumping out these crappy 5 star cards for riots without thinking.
