Hi, my budget is stretched to the limit and I have to choose between the Elemental boss and the Agents of Darkness and I keep going back and forth. The boss adds another darkness deck which is nice because variety is really important to me. But we do already have 4 bosses and the agents add something completely different. But, I dont really think the agents fit thematically and feel tacked on imo.

What do you think?

Thanks.

BOTH BOTH BOTH BOTH BOTH BOTH BOTH BOTH BOTH BOTH BOTH BOTH


I'd get the elemental boss if I had to pick. He looks too cool for school.

But seriously, both. Do you have a firstborn you can sell?

My vote goes to the boss for instant gratification!

Agents may add a different dimension or even get developed further down the road. But since budget is a concern... boss!

I'd say agents. While the Elemntal boss looks cool and adds variety to the boss deck choices, the Agents add a fundamentally new game mechanic to Myth.

Humm, well, I would say Agents, because they look more of a new and interesting mechanic and we have a few bosses anyway, but...

I can see more potential for the Agents in an expansion back further down the road, where we could just buy them packages with some other cool stuff. Whereas the elemental boss would be individual or just packages with excess elementals that you don't need.

So I'm going to go with...elemental boss now, agents later ^^

Keep in mind you've got time to sell (more) blood between now and pledge manager time. If that's still not enough for both, then I'd flip a coin... too many variables to tell really.

I'd lean slightly towards agents because it sounds like they can be used with every boss, where a new boss replaces the others.

I'm going Elemental Boss and not Agents of Darkness. My reasoning being that I want to be able to have more replay options now. The Agents seem like a cool expansion thing to pick up later once they are in retail.

So what do the Agents do actually, what are they?
