Video Guides for the Challenge Nodes with Bonus' Completed

I am making videos with only using minimal cards needed to completed the bonus. Note that you can use unaligned cards in decks that say Kingdom only. If you like the videos you watch, please like and subscribe to the you tube channel!
Reorganized to be alphabetical order since the list was starting to get messy.

I hope you can make one for the Amarus and Crutomist challenge bonuses. Those are nuts. I'm sure there's some way to beat it with a really specialized deck and amazing luck but.. for the moment, I'm just going to ignore them.

I am going off of memory from beta but Amarus you needed a Immortal and some wise owls and Crutomist I don't remember.

Amarus challenge:
1- only can use amarus
2- can only use undead/unaligned cards
3- each half turn both heroes and creatures will be dealt 1 physical damage
4- to complete the bonus challenge you need to win on the 10th turn or after
5- you can only use 1 epic and 4 rares and must be a 30 card deck.

the only way to beat this is like this, you need x4 Essence Mantles x4 thought retrievers x4 rune tomes and immortal

you also need to be lucky enough to grab these cards before round 4:
x1 thought retreiver, x1 essence mantle, x2 tune tomes or x1 rune tome and immortal, if you grab all those cards in a 30 deck before round 4 you can beat it, if not you failed. and wasted 9 energy.

I believe you can beat this using Equalize x4 and a bunch of life gain as well. It would make your deck a little less reliant on luck. I have not really taken a really close look at this challenge yet. I am sure there is other ways to give your opponent health to keep him alive a little longer like blessing his creatures somehow.

This post has been deleted because I said something stupid. *wink*

Yeah, that would be my take on it as well. Gain hp by essence mantles and cast equalize. Maybe destroy the tenacious demon's corpse with corpse eater so the opponent wont lose hp as fast, and stay alive with shields and soul funnels (with mage's ring equipped). But, yes, immortal seems way easier to implement if you have it.

Sorry do the math, those cards at best will only get you to round 7 and that the best case hand. i had 3 rune tomes, essence mantle, and thought retreaver, and immortial and still no dice. as it is now it can not be done.

Nice work, Kensu! Don't forget the boss nodes, too.

Kensu

I am going to finish the regular challenges first and then go back and do the boss nodes. The boss nodes seem like they are easier to beat since there are little restrictions on them unlike the challenge nodes.

Updated with the Pauper Challenge and Holy Training Ground Challenge. Pauper was easy as pie and Holy Training Ground Challenge was pretty tough. Took me a few tries to get the training ground finished with the deck I was using.

i was able to last 12 turns in amarus challlenge using this deck:
http://i.imgur.com/MftdSB3.jpg

the creatures in the deck are no use for me, but didnt have anything to fill my deck with, if i had 2 more thought retrivers i would of used them, try using those cards and replace the creatures with anything that can give you health or draw cards

and here is my deck for the new Olfaan Challenge:
http://i.imgur.com/HIRaVJv.png

all that you really need in that deck is the low mana explosive alchemy creatures + poison darts + essence mantles and thought retrievers, the rest is just extras, the idea of this deck is to keep killing your creatures and enemy creatures with poison and retrieve them back with your thought retrievers till he decks out

my deck for the singleton challenge:
http://i.imgur.com/fiw5bcI.jpg

the rule is only use 60 single common cards, and you will go VS an AI called Jeffo with an awesome skin, he will use vs you full epic/legendary cards, i was able to beat him the first try, dont know if i was lucky or not, but thats the deck i used to beat him ^^

*New* my deck for beating the Step up to the challenge II:
http://i.imgur.com/bvOKuK1.png

the conditions are, using any hero 40-60 deck and beat him in 10 turns or less
he starts with 108 or 110 health i forgot, and x4 thought retrievers, the rule is gears cant be destroyed, so miling him out in less than 10 turns is out of the question, so i used QDC, now thats not the perfect QDC deck, but i dont have the cards to make it perfect, but it did the job after 3 tries, a perfect QDC is having x4 study gears, with x4 rejuve potions, and ANY draw cards, if you are lucky with your early QDC grabbings you can beat him.

this is awesome! more updates please^_^

zonotriko

Thanks.... I got the Step up to the Challenge in my first try with QDC Noran, even with some wasted cards...

For Singleton I tryied twice with Dravkas and agot it only at the third time with Baha....

arknia

here's my deck for the alisten challenge:

2x wyrm nest
1x bountiful princess (optional)
2x whelp egg
1x infused wyrm (optional)
1x deplete (optional)
4x subjugate
1x ancient ritual
1x fear
4x titan's stomp
3x horde of wyrms
2x ancient beads
2x thought destroyer
1x thought retriever
4x essence mantles
1x aegis shield (optional)

The optional cards are put in for lack of better cards. Basically, it's a stall deck. 1st stall their creatures and try to recover health, then wait till there's a full board before titan stomping everything, then continue stalling while milling. Subjugate helps minimize damage so that opposing creatures can stay longer, while ancient beads are for generating mana.

Cheers

here is my deck for Spellslingers Ball chalenge:
http://picturepush.com/public/12122500
Condition:No ancient hero
Global condition: creatures cant be played
Note: key is to defend against magic (magic ward is simplest solution), dont do more than 4 damage a turn and wach out for blitz summon (because the skill they enter as 2/1 in first turn).

Inara_Seraph

I need some help here. Is this even possible? This is how the match starts.

http://i47.tinypic.com/219v1ht.png

Note that the AI might go first, in which case he'll use one of his hero abilities to drop your mana to 0/1/2.. basically, you have a 50/50 shot right at the beginning to lose no matter what. The other abilities are; drains 2 HP from 3 random targets (hero is included in this), and deplete 3 charges/lose life depending on charges lost.

Inara_Seraph

After trying about a dozen more attempts, I want to tear my hair out. If Nemesis goes first, you lose, full stop. There is no deck in existence that can overcome the vast advantage he starts with if he drains your mana on top of it.

Kensu - I like your videos, but MAN you have got to SLOW DOWN and let people see what it is you're doing and why. You RUSH your videos way too quickly to be useful. I tried to duplicate ONE of your videos and it didn't work at all. (THe Amorya challenge). But it took me like a good 10 minutes just to do the deck because you went too damn quick.

SLOW IT DOWN Brother or your vids won't be worth the time to watch.

Kensu
Kensu's picture

If you can be more specific about what parts you think are rushed that would be helpful. Deckbuilding or gmaeplay?

metalklok
metalklok's picture

i find that the pace he is going at is perfect i understood him just fine the only time i paused it was to see what cards he was using in his deck

Kensu
Kensu's picture

Yeah, I think that's what he was getting at was more of an explanation of each card in the decks.

Kensu

Phil is making changes to this challenge to make it a little easier. So I wouldn't waste too much energy on it right now.

MattiasGrendelson
MattiasGrendelson's picture

No, you talk to fast over both parts, and you don't explain enough. Lowest common denominator here, don't ASSume that your viewers understand everything you're doing.

shit man at least he is trying to help people out. I like the vids Kensu, I think you explain it perfectly fine and pause is there for a reason :P

MattiasGrendelson
MattiasGrendelson's picture

Damn man, jump on my case why don't you. I didn't say I didn't like the videos - I asked him to slow down a bit to make it easier to understand. Sheesh

xankludan
xankludan's picture

Hiya Kensu. I'd suggest either a screenshot of your deck used in each video or make a deck over on http://www.kccgdecks.com and link to it. Then people can watch the video and have the deck up in another tab as a reference.

Kensu
Kensu's picture

Sure I can do that. I just assumed people would pause the video but if that would be helpful can defiantly do that
