    Thank you for making Card Hunter and all the beautiful Expansions !

    My first build is:
    Level 1 Human Priest

    Level 1 Human Priest

    Level 1 Human Priest

    Game 1 : vs Pyrious ( 3 Elf wizards )

    Vampire's Kiss and Sacred Shroud are very powerful healing cards,
    They can make Stone Spikes and Path of Knives kinda hopeless.
    Control and Move cards are extremely important for a team of wizards to counter Vanguard

    Game 2: vs Potato Priest ( 1 Human Warrior , 1 Elf & 1 Human Priest )

    Still , a fast and huge damage is the key to break through (Vampire's Kiss)^3
    because it can balance attacking and healing easily if the opponent gives a little spare of time ,
    like what happened in this game.

    Game 3 : vs Pyrious ( 2 Human Warriors , 1 Dwarf Warrior )

    The 4 VPs are all adjacent in this map , and I take 3 of them first .
    I think my opponent was hoping for some All Out Attack but
    what he drew from the Lycanthropic's deck were some really tough armors.

    Game 4 : vs AlmightyBaller ( 3 Human Priests )
    My opponent was trying to test Daylight and Walpurgis Night
    but he didn't know that Ethereal Form is immune to that holy damage
    Since I've already token some better positions and got three Ethereal Form on my Characters,
    we both found out that he didn't have enough damage to
    erase any of my vampires so I quitted in round 2 and waited for a rematch.

    Game 5 : vs AlmightyBaller ( 3 Human : 2 Warriors & 1 Priest )

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My opponent used Leadership to turn
    Unreliable Block created by Wind Dancer into attack cards.
    That showed a good way to slay the vampires.
    In this game I realised that Vampire's Kiss may give opponent Swarm of Bats ,
    which will totally interrupt a Talented Healer combo.


    Vampire's Kiss is the shining card I want to try in the new expansion at the first glimpse.
    It can take away target's armor and block cards all at once.

    With Talented Healer and Vanguard and a cantrip move ,
    You can easily make two vampire priests pull out everything
    before opponent can take a breathe.

    The main problem of using it upon an opponent's character is Swarm of Bats

    The main problem of using it upon an own character is Loner
    One of my other builds is to stack up free cards and then kiss that character...
    And I once had 3 Loner in my hand at the same time ,
    didn't survive long enought to see if there were more upcoming ....

    Thank you for reading !
    ain't sure if I should keep writing
    but for sure will keep playing and loving Card Hunter !

    I am back for the feedback of another build :

    This time I only bring one Human Priest with fewer Vampire's Kiss
     and two Human Warriors with full Wind Dancer and a lot of Howl and Nimble Strike .
    So , the thing I want to test is to get several free cards in my hand , then
     use vampire's kiss toward myself.

    Game 1 : vs Tmzerozero ( 3 Human Priests )
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I guess my opponent was using a similar deck with my first build
     but with several All Out Attack drew from Howl
     I have merely enough damage to do something against his Vampire's Kiss
     and finally won this game

    One thing interesting is that neither me nor my opponent wanted to start the attack first ,
     I didn't attack because I knew he could heal a lot by attacking me ,
     He didn't attack probably because of the same reason ,
     or he was worried that I would get too many powerful cards after he used Vampire's Kiss

    Game 2: vs dark brightness (3 Humans : 1 priest 1 warrior 1 wizard)

    My opponent gave a form card to every character at round 1.
    I got 3 Ethereal forms , and one of my characters still remain in Ethereal form at in end.

    This game was a little bit messy , I won mainly because I got a lot of
     Mind Muddle , a warrior is like a blind poor zombie against this card.

    Game 3: vs Khyle345 (3 Elf Warriors)

    We played kinda straightly.
    I drew some decent cards from the werewolf's deck , that should be the reason I won this game.

    Game 4: vs Pyrious (2 Dwarf Priests , 1 Dwarf Wizard)


    Pyrious was testing Walpurgis Night + Purging Burst.
    Although unexpected form cards are not always bad ,
    I rushed too fast and lost that game.

    Game 5: vs CT5 (2 Elf Warriors , 1 Elf Priest)


    I saw CT5 had talked about it already

    Funny moment:
    One Loner from my own Vampire's Kiss nearly killed my warrior ,
    but it however helped to keep the enemy away for awhile.
    To supplement , I think if we only talk about one on one ,
    an elf warrior will still be better than a human warrior .


    Still have lots of thing to test !


    Here is another funny moment ,
    I learned that I should consider way more carefully
    before I use Vampire's Kiss on my own character.
    When I have 8 cards in my hand ,
    It will be too easy to draw enough Loner to kill myself

    Since Admin reminded us to test some highly tuned old builds against new cards ,

    My third build to test is a simple copy from Fry_The_Guy
    which you can find it here , Thank you very much Fry !

    Level 30 Dwarf Warrior

    Level 3 Dwarf Priest

    Level 40 Dwarf Warrior

    Game 1: vs tmzerozero ( 2 Dwarf Warriors , 1 Human Wizard)


    My opponent brought some Antimagic Skin and Howl with his warriors
     Frenzy is important for warriors with Vibrant Pain ,
     But I think this armor would work way better against wizards or priests.
    In my opinion , this armor is easier to deal with than Cushioning Armor,
     I am interested in a build using this armor to purge my own character's negative trait.

    tmzerozeo's wizard also had Ancient Grudge and Telekinesis
     Although it didn't work very well in this match ,
     the Ancient Grudge is like a time-bomb when you are playing three dwarfs.

    Game 2: vs Fanturluche ( 2 Elf Warriors , 1 Human Wizard)


    This could be described as a match between Nimble Strike and Vengeance
     Although I won this game , I still can't say which card I like more.
     But I would say Vengeance will always be a big surprise in the future.
      It is not an attack nor a move card , it is a trap .

    Will be edited later..
