    Arrow Let's talk mountain

    Ok so there is Bryan Fury Earth Throw Beats...

    There is Ready for Lunch Earth Marius Garius...

    King had his Path (of the master) up the earthen trail that was pretty good...

    Anyone running any other earth decks?

    What are some other tricks that the ol' majestic mountain has hiding up her sleeve?

    Anyone favorite attack in earth? (Please no Mark of the Jotun)

    You got siggy stuff for some control, astraroth for damage pump, ragnar's support for more dmg pump, and rashotep for a lil more control...

    And lets not forget FFG's "wtf" (wow, that's fantastic!) moment when they printed Strange Fashion with a little mountain on it.

    Earth has always been the "rugged mountain defense" symbol and even though good may outweigh it with damage reduction it is still up there as far as able to take a beating is concerned.

    Everyone knows how good Fire, Good, Chaos, Death, Void, Life, Air, All, and even Order are.
    Water sucks. Evil sucks.

    Now let's discuss Earth!

    Conversation piece : Off earth, whats your favorite attack to lead into a double grounder beta?

    Big damage Bear Fang to bait the block? Reborn basher to commit that Lawl of the Land (or other Evil foundation)? Rising Hilt for the low difficulty?

    Also anyone who says "8 damage mark of the beast" gets slapped

    Into beta I like to use either hilt for the difficulty or rising celtis. Though Basher is also a solid idea too.

    As far as Earth Is concerned it has always been my second favourite symbol, however the decks you can build are all fairly similar in design, they just go massive damage fast or control it then make huge damage if you dont die (Which you likely will as fire is kinda awesome I hear.)

    Thanks

    wait, void and all are good? and order is an afterthought? you make me sad sir

    Earth is among the best symbols in the game because it has all the answers.

    some of the top walling cards (Strange fashion, Paid to protect, undisputed ruler) and some of the top damage foundations (brooding unstoppable warrior, hungry for battle, enraged golem)

    Closest thing to Earth I play is in Legacy and its Leona. In Extended I play Leona more by Fire-Earth hybrid.

    With potential stuff Earth has and can do, it truly does have some of the best cards overall.

    Don't forget "Torn hero" brislove. "Strength of the Mountain" was a very nifty card as well.

    Void has king's throws, nina's support, PotE, rasho's support, P2P, Cervy stuff (ok not much there lol) etc. I have played quite a few void throw decks that are pretty strong.

    All is pretty strong too. Yun Seong off all is pretty damn good.

    Order i want to be good, but honestly right now it is missing a few key pieces. Big attacks and damage being one of them. Besides hammer/Turn thruster where does order's damage come from? And remember, if you say over the shoulder with pauls support then they have all as well

    I think order is better than void.
    void nina may work but how many characters work well with cotam?
    Although most the good order cards have all on them its still a better symbol than void atm, in my opinion.

    ok i'll give you that, its a better all around symbol.
    But an order deck is just a All deck with an identity crisis.

    ALL > ORDER > VOID

    People say earth is good, but did it top 8? ( it could of, i am seriously asking)

    Earth seems like it is "good", but for one reason or another just seems "lacking".

    So surprised, this thread is already derailing into a "this symbol is better than that symbol" instead of a discussion thread, lawl

    I was just stating an opinion.
    Earth is good but how many characters can really run earth well?
    King, Ragnar,Siegfried, ( Rashotep is more of a side board character) ( Bryan Fury is much better of evil).
    The character pool for earth seems somewhat limited n comparison to Life, Fire, & Air.
    There don't seem to be too many characters with chaos but some of the characters with a character related theme work really well with its current pool.
    Iv'e never seen a standard death deck win in a tourney, I think this could also be due to synergy of the card pool with the characters (no one mention Kishiri).
    Earth seems to be just really underrated, but it has allot of everything except card advantage and momentum gen which it shouldn't have.
