Circle and the Meta boogeymen Aug 14, 2019 21:45:19 GMT

Hi guys, I am just returning to the game after a bit of a hiatus, and have fully recommitted myself to Circle (no more dabbling in other factions...except maybe Trolls eventually ). In the last 3 weeks I have been able to play about 6 full games and a few JML games. In those games I was given the opportunity to play against some of the lists I had been reading about (being that they are quite strong). I was able to play against a Grymkin 6 clockatrice list, and a Zaal2 double supreme guardian exalted list. That got me thinking, what other big meta benders exist in the current game, and how to we handle them as Circle.
So far I have the following on my list, but I am sure this is not exhaustive:
Skorne Exalted (double Supreme guarding)
Grymkin clockatrice spam
I am curious what people's experience is into these lists, and other similar meta benders, and how you think we would handle them as Circle. I play in a pretty competitive area and would like to arm myself with as much knowledge as possible as I start to get back into tournaments.
***Side note, I played Iona with a storm raptor into grymkin (wanderer + 6 clockatrice). I ended up winning that game after a lucky / good feat turn. I basically traded the bird for 5 enemy heavies (4 clockatrice and a cage rager). I played wurmwood dev host into zaal2 exalted and that felt pretty rough. I feated past midfield after losing the roll for first turn. He then jammed me really hard on his feat turn which left me without the ability to properly attrition. I am sure practice makes this much more playable, but for what it was it felt like a tough match up.
Also, let it be said that the Supreme Guardian and Clockatrice are INSANE. They will defeat your opponent and make you dinner at the same time. #value
