I’m surprised that didn’t have more losses as I find five hero teams have the hardest time against Dreamer and Tomb of Anubis is not friendly.

Yeah Tomb of Anubis made this a rough round. Almost all the teams that won just squeaked by.

Freedom 5: Legacy and Wraith incapacitated.
Prime Wardens: Fanatic incapacitated on the front side. This was the easiest fight though as I focused stalling on her front side so I could draw Cleansing Downpour and heal everyone to full before flipping her. The other 4 heroes ended the game at Max HP after a fight that lasted around 1.5 hours.
Dark Watch: Nightmist was last hero standing. Once she flipped I hid in Mist Form until the environment took out her Projections.
Void Guard: A really rough start. All heroes were quickly in single digits and almost lost early. However, Dr. Medico eventually was able to stabilize everyone else's HP and Mainstay was able to tank for Medico well enough to keep him active.
Alternative Reality: Omnitron-x was the only hero standing at 2 HP.
Space: Mainstay was the only hero standing. He ended the game at 5 HP but was down to 1 HP at one point.

If you can get past Spite reasonably setup the Skinwalker portion should be fairly easy.

Surprised Nature fell to the Dreamer of all teams, unless twin tooth fairies came out and drained the scholar of his fuel.

Tooth Fairies weren't the issue. Both Nature and Revo Corp were close ending with 7 cards under Dreamer each. What did Nature in was Dreamer playing a huge number of Manifestations with back to back Violent Nightmares and then playing Night Terrors.

One of the few games where extra villain card plays from Rook City is welcomed so that you get those Clues out quick.

As per usual I don't have that much hope for those that can't deck manipulate, though VG is above most of those since they onlly have 4 members to use instead of 5.

I don't know if anyone realized this, but you're currently on an 8 match streak of having every team win, which is your longest one by far.  There were 3 other times where the streak was 4.  I may have made a spreadsheet to track this challenge.

Honestly just luck more than anything else. Though I am starting to question which clues I leave in play during the early game and which ones I should destroy even if it means waiting longer for her to flip.

Round 95 results: Easy and fast wins for all teams.

The road ahead:

At this point I have just 1 match left against each solo villain except Trickster Kismet who is waiting on challenge/ultimate mode. With Team Villains I also need to wait on VotM challenge rules as all 10 remaining matches have at least 1 VotM villain in it.

So I will play the final 29 solo villain rounds now. Then I will add some OblivAeon rounds (haven't decided yet if I want to do 1 randomly selected shield per difficulty or face each shield on each difficulty). Then I'll break until the challenge/ultimate modes are out.

 

As I finish up each villain and environment I'll post some results summeries. Currently, there are 5 environments which have finished up thier matches (excluding possible OblivAeon matches).

Rook City: 31 Wins - 9 Losses

Ruins of Atlantis: 28 Wins - 12 Losses

Silver Gulch 1883: 28 Wins - 12 Losses

Temple of Zhu Long: 34 Wins - 6 Losses

Time Catacylsm: 20 Wins - 12 Losses (Time Catacylsm was randomly selected to be the only environment to appear 4 times instead of 5).

The Time Cataclysm losses were all to Challenge Iron Legacy and Ultimate Cosmic Omnitron... I expect most of the environment results to be much more about the villains that happened to play there then the environment itself.

I’d still expect matches in Rook City overall to have more losses than Time Cataclysm regardless of villain with more games there than Time Cataclysm

Rook City might have gotten a lot of easy fights.  I don't recall myself looking at any upcoming fights there and going "I would not play that."

You recently had Miss Information played there which you commented that you were surprised by the wins.

On a whole the results have been a bit surprising as I definitely would not have guessed team Nature or Space to be leading and Prime Wardens next to last.  The only piece I would’ve guessed is DW being last.

Oh Nature I figured would be at least close to the top what with Scholar, Akash, and Naturalist in there. Guise and Ra are also pretty good there. PW suffered a bit from the "base form only" rule here as everyone really benefits a lot from their variants, especially AA and Fanatic.

I’d be surprised if PW did that much better with their team variants.  As to the Nature team you say you expected this but you’ve made numerous comments yourself that you’re surprised they won a given match.

They were probably for things like Miss Info or baddies on ultimate where deck manipulation is required to make them less hellish or something.  After all that team is ultra vulnerable to ongoing wipes and can only stall the deck for 2 turns unless Akash is running with her entire deck in her hand.  Its their only weakness but it's a pretty big one.

Yeah I would have been way off if I tried to predict the outcomes at the start. I probably would have predicted Revo Corp or Freedom 5 in first. Great mixes of Support, Utility, and Damage.

I expected lack of deck control to hurt Nature. I expected only having 4 heroes to hurt Space and Void Guard more... of the 4 hero teams I actually expected Alt Reality to have the best record since La Comodora has so much synergy with Omnitron-X and that team has good deck control from Visionary.

I probably would have guessed something like this as the order.

1. Freedom 5

2. Revo Corp

3. Alt. Reality

4. Void Guard

5. Prime Wardens

6. Nature

7. Space

8. Dark Watch

Another surprise.  I would’ve expected on Ultimate at least that a few teams would’ve have fallen before winning that damage race against Plague Rat.

Ultimate was round 33 and was at Magmaria. I remember it being a really tough fight for a lot of teams.

As long as you didn’t get regular behemoths Magmaria probably had little to no impact.

Not sure why I never thought of this before, but using Representative of Earth to have Completionist Guise transform Naturalist to Hunted Naturalist was absolutely the turning point of my last match.

Honestly the biggest upset for me here is Revocorp.  That team has three people who can snowball like mad alongside Stuntman who has good damage in general and Parse who's great at keeping threats at bay until the snowballers can snowball.  Tied for 5th is a lot lower than I thought they would be.
