The Best Defence is a Good Offense

The 4th Part of the series, brings us to the searing hot Underworlders with their geysers, ponds, and cities of Lava. Ruled by Chaor and helped by Hikeda, these Underworlders lay waste to almost all who draw near the warmth.

 He is the one and only Ultra Past Creature with a tribe designated to it (i.e not tribeless). He has 50 Energy which is under average for an Underworlder, 2 Mugic Counters (always a good thing), Fire 5 and nice power. His secondary ability is only useful when you have at least 3 of your creatures on the opposing team, but then again, if you need 10 extra damage, and you have no Mugic Cards left, at least you know who to call...

Kopond, High Muge of the Hearth
 This Muge is probably the most used of the 4 (online anyways), maybe becasue Enre-Hep and Lore is banned and Kopond helps more in Burn Decks than the High Muge of the Lake (Najarin) does in the Overworld Healing Decks. Like all the 4 High Muges, Kopond has an exclusive ability which lets him deal an additional 10 damage with mugic that would deal damage... Not bad 20+10 = 30 damage Canon of Casualty. He has the Fire Element for a Consuming Cacophony, nice power and wisdom and 30e. Kha'rall Husk Armor + Melody of the Meek Combo anyone?

Unfortunately, I'm not going to go with the Kopond, High Muge of the Hearth + Kha'rall Husk Armor + Melody of the Meek. I'll leave that to you lol! I'm quite bad at making Underworld decks so bear with me as I present...

The Army of the Hearth

1x Refrain of Denial (UW version) or Cadence Clash

1x Magma Might

This deck revolves around burning obviously =P. Works like this... All Mugic you cast that would deal damage will deal 5 extra damage, except in the case of Kopond who has 15 extra damage. In Total, we have 4 Burn Mugic, and quite a bit of spare counters, in case of Interlude of Interuption or Cadence Clash. Now, in total, we would deal 20 to 45 extra damage, thanks to Drakness and Kopond High Muge as a side-note/interesting fact.
So, Dawn of Perim Chaor defends Kopond and Drakness, Drakness can't die as easily as Kopond because of the Weightless Energy Vessel.
 Now, your front line warrior, will be Kaal. Kaal will be your attacker with Strike 20 (Approx. Ulmar, PR expends (both)) and Fire 10. So Kaal, if he deals Consuming Flame will deal 15+10 = 25 damage, plus the bonus expend from Ulmar, Perithon Racer, to deal a total of 45 damage.
 If Ulmar gets attacked, DON'T expend your fire until the opponent has 10 or less energy remaining. This can be done by attacking, expending the other Ulmar's Fire and Burn Mugic.
Now, one of my friends asked me, "Why didn't you give Kopond, the Weightless Energy Vessel?" And my answer is, if your opponent uses Burn Mugic/Abilities to take Kopond down, I found that the mugic/ability at the top of the burst goes first... So if your opponent burns Kopond, then since Kopond is going to die anyways, just shoot burn mugic out and who knows, it might code the one doing the burning, So Kopond doesn't get coded =D. Also, Kopond's ability is pretty selfish as compared to Drakness so yea.
If you plan to use this deck, Use Kopond to cast the two Canons and an Improviational Melody. This makes 30+15 = 45 extra damage (We still haven't use Consuming Cacophony Yet =D). Save the Consuming for someone else to cast.

That's my Deck!~


  1. Also, just realized I missed Zamool, but not to worry, I shall use him in another deck in this series... The Tribeless ones obviously... Can' believe I forgot the dude who is yea lol...
    Or we could just say he got a combo and call it even

  2. one thing: u said about not using WEV on kopond that u could just use Kopond to burn the guy trying to burn Kopond. BUT u missed one thing. Once mugics, attacks, and/or abilities are in the burst, they are independent of their caster(s). So let's say your Kopond is getting burned by my...Chaor...somehow. If my Chaor plays Consuming Cacophony, it goes into the burst. Then, if you play enough mugic to code me, that goes in the burst. Then, the burst resolves. First, your mugic codes me. Chaor is gone. BUT his mugic still goes through. It doesn't matter if Chaor in play or not. The mugic still goes through. So Chaor and Kopond are coded. The end.

    So...your strategy won't work that well. You should've used Zamool. :P

    If you have more questions, feel free to PM me on Chaotic Forums. ;)


  3. lol... I admit I'm not the best at Underworld deck... And this "burst" is kinda complex as well... Especially with the burst one... I'll probably need to rewrite another one that will be better... But I don't think it matters that Kopond gets coded, 'cause I think the main point with him is to play the burn mugic. When that's done, I don't think he'll have much else for use
