Dumb Fun Decks: Throwing Spears

Natural born killer: Tyrell Kawaii

Oct 17 2016 12:00 AM | FedericoFasullo in Strategy

Seems that Green is the new Black and everybody is trying to figure out something good out of one of the - allegedly - weakest faction in this game. So here's my personal attempt to try to make Tyrell competetive.

First of all let's make it clear: the biggest problem is that Tyrell cards are not skilled enough, they do not have good things to try to achieve a good attack deck (like Targayren or Lannister) or a good defence deck (Stark, Nightwatch) or a control deck (Baratheon, Martell). So what's left? Rush? Heck no! I'll never play rush. The silly designers of this game gave Tyrell all cards that push towards a good rush but who am I to follow people intentions? I don't trust strangers.

Let's adapt Tyrell cards to my playstyle :3
