Sample Unit ~ Invisibility Combo ~

Summary: Remember the old Aegis CItadel combo with Edin?  Here is a bit better combo than that.

Unit Content:

270. Moggy Howdah
Edin, the Persecuted
Green Cubic

How does this Unit work?

Simple in your first turn, summon a green cubic on a wood field.  Next turn summon Moggy Howdah off the green cubic, then Edin facing the same direction as Moggy.  Now both Edin and Moggy has the invisibility i.e. no physical, magic or spell attack can damage neither creatures.  And all the subsequent allied creatures gain invisibility as long as they are facing the same direction as Moggy.

Clearly there are ways to counter this as Set.3 introduction suppose to allow us counter anything in the game.  Some of counter include Fog, Fissure, General Lag etc.

The key thing about this combo in comparison to the Aegis + Edin is that there is no Summoning Lock i.e. you can complete this combo as early as your second turn!!

  1. I thought about this one too, but its easy to counter, just fieldquake the field moggy is on, it either loses its ability to give invisibility or it dies.
    I think its better to use moggy later in the game as your 4th creature, giving your opponent little time to counter, before you summon moggy you can use aluhja seduction to turn all your creatures in the same direction.

    I agree that there are many ways to counter this and fieldquake is definitely one of them, but from what I heard there seem to be somewhat less of a trend that people including fieldquake in their deck. And previously people weren’t too worry about invisibilty so the chance of coming across the decks with anti-invisibility built in may be low (at least for now).

    I have to say that after playing quite a lot online, fieldquake is becoming rarer, more emphasis now on turning, etc. It’s a great idea!

    Hey houshasen, do a ‘list your favourite combos’ thread…

    i.e. moggy and sentry (I love that combo)
    double egg (we’ve had)
    missionary ship and palmetic vengeress

    it’s good to share!

    Fieldquake was slowly getting out of the picture with set 2, but there’s way too many nice combo like this one with set 3, so I have a feeling that they will come back in many decks. But with set 3, there’s more creatures that will fieldquake. Who knows, maybe the solution will be with those creatures… A bit like good old Dwarf Sniper. Almost every deck as one now because it’s a great way to deal with dodgers. (Come to think of it, Dwarfs are really getting a lot of love. Low cost, fieldquake, anti dodge, anti-incarnation, etc…)

    Can you fog an invisible creature ? I would assume you can’t. Can the owner cast spells on his own invisible creature, for example fieldbonding an invisble Moggy Howdah ?

    Great question. As I was writing, I questioned myself with the same question. I really don’t know. Perhaps we may not be able to.

    Yesterday, i was completely stuck with a combo of this kind against an online player. This is what he did :

    1. Moggy Howdah on F3, i was able to destroy it
    2. another green creature on F3.
    3. Edin on F5 => the green creature on F3 got invisibility
    ( i attacked Edin but was not able to destroy it)
    4. He used Mourning Reanimation on F3 to get back Moggy Howdah on the same direction than Edin => blocked….
    5. He summoned the rest of his creatures in the same direction…..(couldn’t do anything!!!)
    How can i break this combo ??????!!!!!
