    Playing non comital decks that say simple cycle with every card but don't present valid wincons are bad

    Not only because they can be countered by a single card, but because playing them actually degrades your ability to be a good player

    I see this mistake a lot with taylor swift, why not just play prank cards with her and fill up the board with cycle garbage?

    Well because your deck isn't doing anything, it is in fact exceptional in it's ability to do nothing.

    It presents zero wincons, it has zero answers, it has zero alternate approaches to play, it is in fact a gaping hole an absence of play.

    The same thing can be said about playing an elusive good stuff deck.

    Its like yep here we go how many avalanche effects do you have in hand?

    Are we going to take advantage of the fact that you may be bricked or that lodestone exists so it doesn't really matter if you get board cleared

    Yes that is one approach, but what happens when youre forced to actually play the game

    Play in a meta where decks that actually do something are good?

    Well you might very well be garbage?

    We saw this in the post Ionia patch, people who were just like well shiiiit wtf do I do now that I can bounce everything?

    Idk engage with the games mechanics, think, exercise pass priority, not suck?

    Long story short try to brew decks that actually accomplish a set objective, it will make you a better player.

    Why create a new topic each time when you want to write something. You've already created several topics recently. If you have something to add, write in those. Anyone interested will see that a new message has appeared.

    Anyway, dafaq is taylor swift?

    Nifty, I don't think there are nearly as many players as you think in this game (and especially not in this forum) who play hard control decks with all draw and no wincon. It seems like most of your rants go off on that sort of player - who doesn't really even exist.

    A cursory look over the current list of best decks on Mastering Runeterra shows that they literally all "do something." So, umm, yeah - I guess good decks are decks that actually do something. Also, fresh snow is white. And water is wet. And fire is hot.

    I guarantee they won't stay with Snap. I played the game up until collection level 2200, and it gets absurdly annoying up there. Second Dinner printed waaaaaaay too many "screw you" counter cards. It is a completely viable and effective strategy to play a deck that has absolutely no wincon of its own - it just completely shuts down any wincon your opponent might be trying to achieve.

    And way more than half of the players in the upper tiers are playing those kinds of decks. I literally started a new account so I could enjoy the game again. 

    When the streamers get up to those higher collection levels and have to face nothing but "screw you" decks ... over ... and over ... and over ... and over ... they will stop playing.

    Snap is just very unrewarding f2p you'll get credit screwed at collection level 100 and be hard forced to run the same Odin deck while grinding for minimal rewards not sure how people do it.
