Kami vs Fallen

append delete NemoRathwald

When playing a mission where one of the monsters in the top row is a Fallen, this disadvantages a strategy where you generate a lot of Blood in the early game. For example, you probably do not want to recruit a Barbarian before your first shuffle.

If you see Kami and an affordable unit with type "Ninja", consider a Ninja-based strategy. Kami becomes more affordable as you play various Ninjas. Therefore, you are designing a deck which will generate less Blood in the early game, and more in the late game. This way you will not spend the early game accidentally boosting the strength of the Fallen by generating too much Blood. Kami will help you eliminate the Fallen quickly enough to prevent it from embiggening itself too much.

Red Ninja seems a particularly potent combo in this scenario. Red Ninja is extremely inexpensive to recruit, so you can quickly make Kami cheaper to recruit. Also, Red Ninja insta-kills weak Monsters and generates no Blood at all, so it does not embiggen the Fallen.

Do you agree? What have you tried, and what worked?

Another approach to defeating Fallen is consistency. In this style of play, you would fill your deck with Units that generate either one or two Blood, and avoid buying Scout or Elite, so that almost all your turns will fall within a narrow band of 5 or 6 Blood. After all, it does not good to get Kami if you generate a massive amount of Blood on a turn where Fallen is doing its Trick.

The problem with building a deck to enforce turns that are just OK, but never great, occurs if you are facing a high-powered Monster such as Demon. A deck which cannot beat all the Monsters in the current mission is a losing deck. It does no good to defeat Fallen only to paint yourself into a corner in which you can never win the game.

Which approach do you prefer? Or do you have a better one? Post your reply below!
