Blood Bowl Daily Week 47! – “So the Bretonnians are… “fun”?”

Hello Nurglings!

Welcome to another week of Blood Bowl Daily episodes, this week only have 4 episodes sadly becuase of some health issues with my dog, but I still managed to get 5 games recorded becuase of some lucky dice rolling!

The past week we played Bretonnia and I’ve never been a huge fan of the human teams and I feared that I would have a equal experience here. Even tho I did enjoy them more, they were still not all that for me (Dwarfs are still the best btw).

But we had a good week, hope you enjoy the games and I will cya here next week after 5 games of nasty ratyness!

Until next time, take care.
Cya soon!

Pokémon TCG deck – Sharpedo EX / Hydreigon [Standard]

Hello Nurglings!

Main Pokémon: Sharpedo EX / Hydreigon
Deck Name: Sharpedo (Seriously it does not need anything cooler than that!)
Format: Standard 2015 – 2016

Sharpedo Hydreigon

Pokémon

Trainer

Energy

4 Deino 4 Acro Bike 8 Darkness Energy
2 Zweilous 4 Ultra Ball 1 Psychic Energy
3 Hydreigon 4 VS Seeker
4 Sharpedo EX 3 Rare Candy
1 Malamar EX 3 Professor Sycamore
1 Shaymin EX 3 Silent Lab
1 Lugia EX 2 Switch
2 Professor Birch’s Obserbations
2 Head Ringer
1 Battle Compressor
1 Enhanced Hammer
1 Sacred Ash
1 AZ
1 Hex Maniac
1 Lysandre
1 Team Flare Grunt
1 Xerosic

Hints / Things to think about

  • Do not worry if you have to start the game with a active Deino or Shaymin EX using a single energy to retreat first turn can be acceptable. And often even recomnded if it’s the only way to get a energy to the discard pile first turn.
  • The deck as it is now is very focused on energy dissruption, if you feel it’s a bit to unstable. You can easily replace Enhanced Hammer, Team Flare Grunt and even Xerosic with other cards like Trainers’ Mail or a extra Silent Lab.
  • Do not be affraid to retreat with your Pokémon by discarding energy cards! You can easily get them back with a Hydreigon on the field.
  • The Psychic energy is semi important in matches where you fight against decks that are either very good at knocking out EX Pokémon and/or against cards like Regice!

Pokémon TCG deck – M Ampharos-EX / M Manectric-EX [Standard]

Hello Nurglings!

Welcome to the very first of many Pokémon TCG decks that will be posted on this blog!
Let’s jump right in to it.

Main Pokémon: M Ampharos-EX / M Manectric-EX
Deck Name: ManeAmp
Format: Standard 2015 – 2016

Ampharos Manectric

Pokémon

Trainer

Energy

4 Manectric EX 4 Acro Bike 6 Electric Energy
2 M Manectric EX 4 VS Seeker 4 Double Colorless Energy
3 Ampharos EX 4 Mega Turbo
2 M Ampharox EX 4 Trainers’ Mail
2 Shaymin EX 3 Battle Compressor
1 Hoopa EX 3 Ultra Ball
3 Professor Sycamore
2 Lysandre
2 Switch
2 Shauna
2 Ampharos Spirit Link
2 Manectric Spirit Link
1 AZ

Hints / Things to think about

  • Ampharos EX can attack Pokémon with Safe Guard abilities! This is important to remember, don’t just scoop in those situations.
  • You’re opponent may decide to use Lysandre deffensivly to pull out your Hoopa EX or Ampharos EX without energies. Remember that you have 2 Switch and a AZ that can be used to return your active to your hand.
  • If you start with Ampharos active and Ampharos is your main plan for that game, do everything you can to find one of the Double Coloreless Energy and make sure to have atleast one electric energy ready in the Discard Pile for Mega Turbo. P(S: You don’t need to equip the DCE over a lightning energy first turn, you just need to have it ready!)
  • Even tho M Ampharos EX has the strongest attack, it’s completley fine to use Manectric as a attacker and win condition as well. Don’t feel forced to go with the Ampharos plan if you do not really need it in the matchup.
  • As in any deck with Mega Pokémon in it. Do not be affraid to evolve and ending your turn!

Blood Bowl Weekly #11 – Vampire team and action!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the blog about Blood Bowl Weekly #11! Okay so the blog is mostly a link to a video but I thought I would write something as well this time. So first of all, Blood Bowl Weekly #11 is all about the vampires, I created a completely new team and played 3 matches vs orc, dwarf and Nurgle. Actually doing pretty good in my opinion!

The vampire team has always been close to my heart, only 2 types of players and the vampires are truly the heroes of the team and field (or villains I guess?). It makes a little bit sad to see that the vampires never had more skins in the original Blood Bowl, hopefully when they re-appear in BB2 they will be a bit more personal. So that each vampire feels like a character (like they should).

Anyway, will not keep you here for long, enjoy the vlog/highlights down below and I will cya again next week with another Blood Bowl Weekly!

Want to see it recorded live? YOu can find me here: http://www.twitch.tv/Nurgleprobe
Recording a new BBweekly every tuesday.

Until next time, take care.
Cya soon!
