It is an extreme disappointment that Chaotic has simply shut down and died... However, as they say..., "The Show must go on!"
So... to help soothe the pain allow me to present you the battlegear that glided to the under-used pile..., The Windstrider!!
Is it because of...
A. Skeletal Steed - Whihc reduces it by Swift 1 and gives it Range
B. It's fudgin Super Rare!!!
C. It doesn't help in battles like Kha'rall Shards or etc. etc.
Well, according to most people, it's a mixture between A, B and C... but of course, mostly A, the fact that a common battlegear can provide Range and Swift...
But enough beating around the bush, let's talk about the actual battlegear...
In my opinion, Windstrider is an amazing battlegear - tactical-wise... (I break down a Chaotic Game into "Tactical" and "Battle" - You could well lose the battle if you're opponent's board control is strong and in the same way if you have good board control, its not good if you cannot mantain that control when a Maxxor barges in...) So yea, Windstrider is an amazing tactical battlegear, allowing you to reach about 3 spaces ahead, behind, side or diagonal from the equipped creature, or even allow them to evade battles in some cases, and in a 6v6 battle, this is enough to cover at least half of the board's worth of movement. Mix in a well-known card named Xelfe and you've got yourself a mighty strong creature with Ere-like abilities.
Confusing? Don't worry in Easter I'll show you a deck I made with a full analysis... But Winstrider is a very underestimated gear... it gives great board control to evade, or create battles not just to be combined with "Range"
DON'T GIVE UP HOPE!!
And for those who still want to keep in touch whilst playing a TCG online, Im playing Urban Rivals atm and would love to see y'all there *winks*
