  1. Alchemist Matchups

    I played smoke the entirety of season 2 and I really like her play style, but do we even play her anymore? Let me clarify what I mean. Let's assume we are taking a roster to a tournament with both Smoke and Midas on the roster. What match ups do we prefer Midas in and which ones make us select Smoke? I think there are a few no-brainers here when it comes to selecting Midas over Smoke. Brewers are all but immune to the conditions game between magical brew, Esters' heroic, and Hooper's heroic the conditions game seems like more trouble than it is worth. Union is also a problem for Smoke. I am having a hard time imagining that a Union team would not play Hemlock as part of their 9 or would leave her on the bench vs Alchemists. But when we consider the match ups other way around I find that there is little pointing me toward Smoke over Midas. My initial thoughts on when to take Smoke have entirely to do with when I want access to blind since Midas does little to help Calculus and outside of applying blind she does nothing for Midas. I consider the Blind match ups to be Butchers, Fish, and Masons. The 2 captains issue is further exasperated Katalyst vs Vet Katalyst. You can't have both on the roster and each captain clearly prefers one over the other. The roster I am currently considering is: Midas, Smoke, Flask, Mercury, Calculus, Vitriol, Katalyst, Compound, Harry. But I think you arguably could replace Katalyst with Vet Katalyst. The other answer I have considered to this problem is to just play one captain, but under the new organized play rules this is Strictly The Worst (and also my single largest gripe with season 3.) If we decide to not play Smoke every roster is almost exactly the same since we have only 10 selections left to make. Midas, Flask, Naja, Calculus, Compound, (one of the) Katalyst('s,) Mercury, Venin, Vitriol, A Union player (lets not kid ourselves this is Harry.) I think everyone that is leaving smoke at home is deciding between playing 2 mascots or playing every other option available. Let me know your thoughts.
