    looks fun but slow to start at low levels need to use his abilities to up his mana match and he is a horrible rune sink, but can see plenty of possibilities.

    320k runes is just over the top.  Some people ave stashes, but for even a diligent player that’s ~3 no worth of runes income.

    yep, it is nuts but i  did notice his gilded lotus card can help all of the beginner pws do a lot better perhaps it will help them make a comeback?

    they must have changed the way thaumatic compass works with colorless planeswalkers? at first it would transform everytime the first turn it cast, now it just sits there and the activation gems create white gems.

    At level 28 I tried using him to farm rune on heroic story chapter and not having any issues

    mine is only 12 so far and still tweaking his deck but gotten far further on the regular story line than i would have expected, so by 28 i am sure he could be a terror

    Is there a level breakdown of advancement available? I'm wondering when karn gains his 6th support, I'm currently lvl36

    Karn is by far the best nodeless PW of the bunch. In the BO4T you have every card at your disposal , 6 supports if needed, a simple card draw of your first 3 cards for only 4 loyalty... His range is so much fun  and an insane mana ramp(3 color cards will give you +2 in three categories). Bring all your mythics to the party.

    Karn is coming back next week. Does anyone know how much he will cost?
  • martijnmartijn Posts: 1 Just Dropped In
    have him at 60 now and he is just too brutal. I have 2 decks: one with some lifelink and berserker supports, plus the lotus (6 supports, 2 spells for some control, 2 creatures for tricks). strategy is simple: get mana mana bonuses to 5, then go for the kill. The Token is just too brutal, lifelink makes sure you will last very long.

    The other deck evolves around the combo tatyova, benthic druid + sphinx's tutelage. add 5 gates, some land or control spells and you're good to go. once the engine rolls, they will rarely cast a card anymore. Karn is so good here because of the first ability to tickle the sphinx, and the construct to keep the supports alive.

    @martijn I like you second build, with Tatyova and ST. I made a variant with my level 42 Karn and find it to be very strong indeed! I added Jaces Sanctum in place of one of the gates and put the gatekeeper gargoyle in. Great suggestion and thank you!
