Okey doke. Anything in particular you want to see? Haven't been able to fully keep up with the thread and what's been tested already.
I'd like to see one game where he's solo and... probably one pairing him with Adam Warlock, now that he's stronger? Both times I'm thinking the opponent probably places Reality first and tries to keep it from him, and Thanos himself should probably start with Time.

That for sure seemed to be the best glyph combo for me.

Gotcha. I might also look at doing something like dok is suggesting with some passive filler stuff on top? Maybe one solo, one with Warlock and a few passive filler guys.

Sounds solid to me. That'll make the opponent want to keep hold of the Reality Stone even more - if they can keep dumping OMs off Thanos and onto someone like Angel, that's got to be worth something. One of the hardest things to account for in this design are the (fairly occasional) times an opponent manages to use one of the Infinity Stones against you.

Which is why I think he'll be best/most powerful on his own.

That is one of my favorite things about this design. It really feels like a scenario in one card.

I agree, which is why I've asked for another solo-test, which will be the most common way he's been tested. I do feel the Adam Warlock combo is notable enough to be worth a game, though, and if dok feels we ought to test something else I sure as hell am not going to argue.

Re: The Book of Thanos (Infinity Quest) - Vote for Final Edi

Nothing wrong with another game with Thanos being paired with someone. Especially if the CRB recommends it.

I'm just gonna be a bit concerned if his next solo game comes back as a big win, since that feels like a trend.

Anything in particular we want for opposing armies?

Well I found that loosely synergistic units don't fair so well, but OM hubs aren't ideal unless you can keep the Reality Gem away from him, so I'd probably say builds that have OM flex and strong synergy.

Unlike Arkham, I am not that concerned with his singular performances as it feels pretty spot on to me and kind of more like how it should be, you need that extra distraction for him to really get the one up on him

Re: The Book of Thanos (Infinity Quest) - Vote for Final Edi

I guess I'm just confused here. We keep suggesting he go up against armies that aren't as affected by his shenanigans. For years I've heard "make sure the unit is tested in its strongest scenarios" to ensure he's not OP. Are we suggesting now that Thanos should be costed against the less than 20% of armies featuring both strong synergy and great OM flex(thus minimizing the Reality gem)?

Also, fwiw, on the solo performance front, your set of tests saw:
Solo game 1: Thanos won with 5/9 wounds and 2 Gems unclaimed. (no rewritten death)
Solo game 2: Fully rewritten Thanos.
Non-Solo game: The Fan-5 won with Thing bearing 5/6 wounds, Torch bearing 2/5 wound and equipped with the Gaunlet with 3/6 gems, Invisible bearing 4/5 wounds, Fantastic bearing 2/5 wounds, and an unwounded Surfer.

That alone to me shows how strong he is by himself, because he doesn't allow the Reality gem to mess with him. I ran 2 solo games with him before the drop to 2 glyphs, and one was a win without him needing unwritten death, and one he barely lost.

I guess I just don't see how him paired with anyone helps his cause. The Reality gem is one of the strongest, especially when combined with the Time gem, yet the Reality gem is completely useless against Thanos when he's solo, as is the Soul gem for that matter.

So I'm not sure what data would make you feel otherwise, when his biggest wins are when he's alone.

Re: The Book of Thanos (Infinity Quest) - Vote for Final Edi

I am with you here Arkham. It is hard to argue the data or the power of the Reality Gem to thwart Thanos when he has friends.
