Default Why are Tarts so cheap

Tarts are the best SC in the game, and by far the cheapest.

Why is that?

they're crazy, you need a powerful death mage to summon them, and they crawl out of the pit completely ****ed up.

I believe they also can no longer have Gift of Reason cast on them, so you've only got a 20% chance of actually getting a SC out of them.

umm, no. Is that CBM or something?

I wish people would stop acting like CBM=Dominions 3

dom3 drinking game:
- If somebody mentions CBM in a threat out of the blue, drink!
- If somebody complains about CBM not being standard, drink!
- If somebody mentions penetration, drink!

Much less. You have a 20% chance to get *some* commander, who may as well be a feebleminded armess monstra. Meanwhile, you keep wasting mage-turns, probably 2 with some very expensive boosters.

When CBM nerfs something, it makes sure you dont use it ever again.

In vanilla they are the most cost-effective after blood uniques, and most easily spammable. Hardly the best. Shame that they are all bonkers and micro-heavy. I'd suggest playing with CBM anyway. The next version will include tools to make tartarians usable again (and not cheap). And it includes choices to do something else than tartarians, besides clamspam and wish seraphs/mandehas/whatever.

also: CBM, it's not standard. It includes references to penetration.

Why doesn't CBM work harder to make the other spells more useful? How about bog beasts that can really do some damage???!!!

You mean like the improved summoning spells? Combat spells that arrive quicker? Even the drakes spells are viable in cbm.

Bog beasts is the only spell that has not really been improved. Because it already does something useful, summon 3 po aura units for 3 gems. Very spammable. Deadly against glass cannon sacred nations.
