Heh yeah, I know most people hate it. But its +2 honor per kill is just too tasty. Get 2 Guardians in a hand and you're suddenly seeing a big honor drain. Also, the Guardian is a great addition if you have a) power constructs, of which Canopic Jar is easy to get or b) deck mobility cards like Tower Askara or c) power heavy units like Soul Assassin or Scrap Flinger. More often than not it works out for me. Unlike Askara of Fate, which I still hate Playing that card is like giving everyone else an Ascetic of the Lidless Eye.

Amazing game onlyphoenix.

That game epitomizes everything I love in Ascension and especially in Storm of Souls. We both had highly technical hands which required great skill to maneuver, and both did so superbly with a tiny luck factor swinging it. Incredibly good match. In fact, I think that's the best game of Ascension I've ever played.

Yeah, it was really exciting. Some people crib about how crazy the cards are in SoS but you need to play well to really utilize them.

Not me! Did I mention I tend to choke in tourneys? Have yet to make it out of a second round. I guess that could be good for rankings in the big 32-player brawl...

onewithchaos, Dreamer's Glass is pretty hard to stop once it gets going. The key is to protect it by buying a cheap 3 honor construct and a 5 honor construct so only Polaris Demon can hit it.

Also, no choke this time I see tecwrtr! Through in straight wins, good luck against Desuki

Congrats Tecwrtr. Great wins. I was on the backfoot in both games with little chance.
