Relevant Rulings
When do you choose to add stratagems out of your sideboard? When declaring characters or when sideboarding battlecards?

Stratagems are played concurrently with the starting team for a game. This is required otherwise cards like Master Converter and Aerial Enhancements would not effect the starting team, leading Windsweeper to be sad when Blitzwing and Tracks don't count as Planes.

Does a stratagem changing the attack/defence of a character change the base values for the character?

No. For example, if Private Pteraxadon’s Binary Edgewing Scythe upgrade mode removes the base defense from a defending Windblade, Combiner Hunter, it would not remove the +1 from the Camien Toughness stratagem.

Tags: Stratagem
How many stratagems can I play?

You can play up to one stratagem for each different character, trait, or faction listed on the stratagem, as long as your starting team includes that character, trait, or faction. For example, if your starting team is all Autobots and includes Optimus Prime - Legendary Warrior, you can play both Heroic Spotlight and Duty & Honor.

Where do I put my stratagems?

Stratagems go on the battlefield. At the beginning of the game, as you reveal your team, you also reveal your stratagems.

Some stratagems have an ability that causes them to flip. What does that mean?

Flipping a stratagem essentially turns its ability off. This happens on one-time abilities to remind you that you've already used them.

Notes from Deck of the Day:
"Today's card of the day is Me Grimlock King! from wave 8.

There are a few different ways you can build this deck, combining the w1 powerhouse Grimlock, Dinobot Leader with the new quintesson melee characters. Although at first most people will gravitate towards the Sharkticons with this stratagem, it also works on Zombie Prime, as well as the Allicons and Sharkatron. I opted for the simpler Sharkticon build this time. Chomp and Rippersnapper are well statted sharks to run in general, with their X/6/1 statlines in alt mode. Peck is a nice option for card draw and recursion, and works as a backup pumping flip effect if Grimlock should die. Another option I would consider is playing Muck Sergeant Peck with the No Lords, No Masters stratagem and likely one of the Allicons to have a 3 wide team of leaders for the Sharkticon mMtrix.

I also went for a heavy orange build over an orange/black one to really get the most out of Grimlock's flip effect and the extra star cards, at the moment, there's not many good options if you're going for a black deck in terms of star cards. Being able to use Guilty or Innocent and Escape Route on top of the usual Supercharge and Fight for Position to fill out the number of pump actions available is a really nice trait of this deck. Being able to lump Matrix of Leadership as well as Sharkticon Matrix on Grimlock and running Masher Mace and Mounted Missiles are some nice benefits to playing Sharkticons. One thing to consider that I didn't put in this version is Me Grimlock Need New Strategy, which is a nice way to almost sideboard mid-game when needed into the other Me Grimlock stratagems.

The main strategy is flipping Grimlock back and forth for the bold boost throughout the game whilst smashing face with the occasional pump action and power weapon until he eventually smashes through two characters at once in bot mode. Intermittently flipping the sharkticons could also be effective, but that bold 3 is hard to beat. Flipping Peck on a wheel turn for bold 1 across the board could be worth it sometimes, especially against a taller team like Metroplex or Fortress Maximus. Additionally, Rippersnapper's bot mode defense reduction can be a good way to push damage through blue decks, and his alt mode can be used to deal with small and annoying brave or stealth characters such as patrol leaders. Sometimes flipping Chomp to bot mode can be really explosive as well, slamming a Sharkticon Matrix, Masher Mace or Bashing Shield on top of your regular upgrade play can be really helpful in some circumstances if you need just that little bit extra punch, and going second with his flip effect into a pump action can be brutal at times."
