Quix Strikes Again! - Most Underrated CL Summoner
Hello fellow Hivians!
Today we are talking about Quix again. I've brought this up before but I just had my first Dragon quest in quite some time so I busted out repetitive Quix spam yet again. Simply put, I just can't get over how good he really is.
Abilities: -1 Range, -1 Speed
At face value he does seem comparatively weaker than some of the other Dragon comps but personally any time a card has a speed modifier it automatically becomes ranked highly in my book. At 4 mana comparables include Brighton, Neb, Darla, and Drake. He is already a direct upgrade over Neb given -1 and +1 speed are relatively equal and Quiz has that -1 range. Drake has always been sub-par but generally speaking 1 Armor is valuable only if your comp is alpha based and can't really take hits. I much prefer persist abilities so that again leaves Darla as the only real comparison. TBH, I do prefer Darla over Quix but she is also going to be retired in the new format and I'm predominately a modern format player. As a result, although I think she has better utility (+1 melee is almost always good) her $/utility ratio isn't great.
Okay so we talked about what makes him great now lets go through some live examples:
I literally just played Quix back to back to try and complete my dragon quest. That said, I do have a pretty solid water comp which was available to me for most of the matches.
In each of these fights, the primary benefit to utilizing Quix was the -1 Speed debuff. It gave my cards the chance to clear the board and grab some dodges when they otherwise would have been killed off resulting in a win. The other key benefit was I often used a leveled tank. Although I'm screaming Quix's praises right now sometimes a leveled tank is all you really need. In this case a lvl 3 Sea Monster and lvl 2 Chwala (lvl 3 but not able to summon it) were more than capable of taking out groups of my opponents.

Hah - I just got a Dragon quest, too. I'm hoping for a few high mana games to get some use out of Kitty but after reading your post I might rent and give Quix a try.
well, Kitty is better than Quix imo but also absurdly expensive.
Yes, expensive mana AND expensive $$ - typical cat / woman 😋. I got lucky that I got her in a pack about a year ago. Now I cherish that cute kitten - LOL
