March of the Tribes - A New Hive!

Welcome to Chaotic: Down Under, temporarily infected by the Danians which apparently is the tribe next on the March of the Tribes series!
The Danians
One of the 4 classic tribes of Perim and the most underused of all the tribes in Perim... It's a sad fact, do people really hate "bugs" that much? xD!
Is there such a thing as a classic Danian? It would probably be one of these littl' critters.
I just love Dawn of Perim Classics, don't you xD! Ibiaan is who I chose to represent a "classic" danian. So, Ibiaan is a Mandiblor, these guys are like the worker ants of the hive and work together to increase their overall strength, take a look at Ibiaan's ability for an example. Next thing flashy about Ibiaan is the typical Earth element. Of all the tribes, Danians specialize in earth attacks which is fairly common to see, their secondary element is water such as Nimmei. Next is the Danian's most common unique ability: Hive. You'll see the word, "Hive", a lot in Danian Cards and most people think it is the most annoying since sliced cheese. A player needs to activate Hive via mugic or an ability to even use some of the Danian's greatest abilities and this is one of the reasons why Danians aren't widely played I assume... But then again, ever since Turn of the Tide, this danian below came out....

Elna...Elna...Elna, this guys solved the Hive problems the Danians had, and also allows me to introduce the next unique Danian ability - Compost. Compost is such a unique and powerful skill that so many players make a Danian deck just for it! I won't go much into a detail but basically its when if a creature gets destroyed like Elna, you get a particular boost for your army! That way, if a compost mandiblor falls like Elna, you lose some boost with danians such as Ibiaan above (+5 per Mandiblor) however, you gain some compensation!

Anyone recognize one of your favorite creatures there? How did they get all bug-like and part of the most unpopular tribe in all of Perim? It's due to the 3rd unique ability the Danian possesses. Infection. It basically makes the Danian Tribe all the more stronger as every and I mean EVERY infected creature counts as a Mandiblor to abilities. This means creatures that gain 5 energy per Mandiblor you control and Infected Creature your opponent controls. This leaves a maximum energy gain of 6+6 = 12 * 5 = 60 Energy boost via a single ability. Pretty insane... In addition, Danians abuse this infection system with locations and mugic like Strain of Infection and Infectorium which deals 15 damage to Infected Creatures as a location ability!!!

So, now you know a bit of the Danians unique abilities they have up to offer, Prepare to be enlightened by their stable mugic, locations and other itsy-bitsie stuff

Hail Illexia, The Danian Queen!
Hail Azil, The Danian Queen!


  1. I agree that a lot of people frown down on the Danians. In all of the tournaments I played, I never saw anyone else play an all Danian deck. But the great thing is that no one prepares against them either. I played a compost deck at a tournament and it stomped all over everyone. Great to see you posting again.


  2. I was worried you were gone for good! From :Dethdude327

  3. Nah! That won't happen without a formal goodbye xD

  4. Yeah, I was thinking of Running a Danain Necro Deck That totally abuses compost and Elna's and Khritlaan's abilities. It also factors in Tabaal for infection, Makrabon for infection(w/ infectious melody) and hive backup (w/ strain of infection) and Queen Illexia for Defender spread and mandibloor representation. Ekuud is the "Doom Knight" in this case becoming a super-tank with a minimum of 90 energy.
