Useful Quotes from the Archive:
These posts where made ages ago, challenges might have been changed in the meantime.

aww1979 wrote:Well, I've got insomnia tonight, so I think I'll give some of these a whirl! :p I'll start in order. The chaos orb one seems like cheap casts, haste, and comes into play effects on permanents will be the way to go.

Also, Chaos orb challenge behaves like this:

Round 1: tap
Round 2: tap
Round 3: bounce
Round 4: bounce
Round 5: bounce
Round 6: destroy
Round 7: destroy
Round 8: destroy
Round 9: destroy

beat the challenge with a belcher deck(usually turn1 or turn2 kill so even if the ai destroys stuff it doesn´t really matter. either 10+ goblins or belcher for 90 damage ^^)

didn´t even have to modify the deck - beat it at the first attempt.

Yeah, it's tendrils again :p I thought about trying things like dredge, but I figured that the challenge environment would wreck the bazaars too badly. False alarm on the bug earlier, it was just a badly timed crash, as it was loading round 10 :p Anyway, for the first few rounds, just play it like normal tendrils; the tap/bounce is only a minor inconvenience. After that, you'll have to either play several permanents right away so that you keep some in play, or wait until you can go off all in one turn, 'perfect storm' style.

I too found the Ad Nauseam deck a total dominator in this challenge. I really wanted to mitigate as much of the bounce/destroy effects as possible, so I went a little crazy with the zero drop mana artifacts. This deck does nothing except accelerate to an Ad Nauseam and play it. Put a single Pact of Negation in case the AI randomly countered something but it never happened. No real luck, and mostly turn 1-3 wins.
