Nice work with the Sacred Vault slammer! I was holding Juno and was working towards 30 credits (you probably guessed what I was up to) and given that I only have 1 Juno in my collection you ended my campaign pretty quickly! Thanks for making it a swift end :-p
I like the look of that deck. Sacred Vault + Ancient Treasure look like a fearsome combo!
I was Playing around with a deck that would support the Juno card. The premise behind it is to race to 30 ASAP before the opponent has any real chance to do anything. I need to be a lil more subtle and also have some counters.

I was wondering what you were up to... when I saw your cards through Holy Day and didn't see any immediate threat, I sweated a little just because I couldn't figure it out - I didn't see Juno in that first look.
That was my second time playing that deck and I'm still optimizing it. It didn't work as fast as I thought it would the first time against Collins, but yeah, the premise is to discard multiple Sacred Vaults as fast as possible then put Ancient Library (or a deceptive site like Assassin Library or Sofia's Home) on top of it (hopefully after a well-placed Into the Light).
By the way, one thing you can do to hasten the buildup of your income for your Juno deck is to do a discard + Incite Revolt (which is also what I did in my deck). Use The Discovery and Laboratory Research since you're using Scholar - these cards will increase your income and give you additional drawing power.

Thanks for the tip. I posted something yesterday claiming that a guy I was playing against was cheating. Turned out the Discovery card enabled the condition of his 11 cost card so, in addition to feeling like a fool, I'm now up-to-speed with that lil trick!

coolkendude, please fix your internet , last couple of times I played against you was a nightmare and was coursing every 5 seconds lol cause it kept lagging . That last game we were playing I was about to win but you got disconnected ... Nice to see you are playing some new cards and gave me some challenge (a lot of challenge actually, you beat me the first 2 times until I figured out what deck could counter your discards ). Btw, you were fine before, but in the past couple of days, somehow when I play against you it lags, but its fine when I play against others, even when I am recording it doesn't lag with others (most of them that is lol) so I know its not me.

btw, what's with discards? Everyone is playing discards! lol I hated the discards before the new memories update, I would just quit as soon as I saw a discard, but it kind of disappeared for a while after the new memories and sulieman was a big thing. And now that all my decks focus on countering sulieman, everyone playing discard again .... I've been saving money, got a pretty good amount now so that I could buy new cards, but looks like I am being "forced" to go to discards as well lol. If I create a discard everyone will hate me lol, and I am against it too so kind of stuck lol.

When I realized you were using Falkinator's deck (or a variant of it), I really thought you would outrun me. I think Assassin Stronghold saved my neck twice in that one game. I'd suggest not changing Falkinator's build for now (if you have all the cards). It runs great for what it does.
My Internet connection is sometimes spotty but tonight was great. I think mohammad and I just played at a time when my connection would go in and out. Otherwise, I generally have a stable connection.
