Dear trainers,

I can agree entirely that using Battle Compressor is a genuine tactic, and that using Pokemons who can take advantage of that item is pure genius. Especially in the case of Night March. Using Durants to Devour your opponent’s deck is also pretty neat, as it could be seen as a pacific way of winning the game. No Pokemons (except yours) get hurt in the process, so it’ll also be fighting against Pokemon 4buse.

However, you guys are taking turns that last 2-5 minutes, and let’s be honest, that is extremely annoying. Sure, I understand that you need several Shaymins to Set-Up your strategy, and getting a whole bunch of them on the same turn and shuffling them back into the deck is pretty tactic-wise. But then, you start using item cards, such as an endless array of hammers, or a couple of Battle Compressors. And then you use Puzzles of Time to play them again. I can understand the fact of setting up a bench, but I do not see the point of playing the game if all you do is « Solitaire ».

Therefore, I have now decided to return the favour, and « think » for a long time before playing each of my cards. Please be patient with me, as I’ll probably need a couple of minutes each turn to think what I’m going to do about that Durant or Joltik of yours.

Sincerely, and without any hard feelings.

Uh...mill decks don't usually spend 2-5 mins per turn. Night March pretty much has to. Seriously, shays and compressors aside NM is much harder to play than it looks.

well in this case this is how night march works its suppose to do that battle compressor, shaymin, play puzzle of time etc... and you just have to wait or just quit they made that option for a reason you know.

Just for the record, almost all non-durant mill decks actually have to take really short turns online or they time out.  Durant, of course, is Blitzkrieg-level fast, and could take a walk in the park every turn and still win- if it's a good match up, of course.  Everything else, though- raichu, houndoom, ability/devo spray- is kinda slow, and has to rush decisions.


The rest of the world must act as they see fit.  If TPCi insists on keeping the Chat canned, that is their decision.

 

But that does not stop me from opposing it.

And I will oppose it forever.

Night march is getting so countered in the expanded format now that it is not even a thing anymore. And just to be honest, the current optimal decklist definitely does not need to spend 2-5 minutes playing a turn. That really just sounds like new players over-exhausting their resources without aware of being countered on the next turn. 

 

Mill decks should be played really fast in my opinion. There shouldn't be more than 1 or 2 shaymins in any top tier mill deck unless they want to deck out and run out of resources as fast as you do. Probably your opponent just started to use this deck and is unfamiliar with it.
