Unlike chess and some other games of complete information, Prismata does not require rote memorization or extensive opening book study to be highly competitive. However, it can still be helpful to be aware of some common build orders.
 
Many aggressive builds are difficult or impossible to overcome if the opponent does not anticipate them and adjust accordingly. Familiarizing oneself with these builds is helpful in finding opportunities to use these tactics as well as learning to counter them.
 
==Delayed Tia Thurnax==
When Wild Drones are available, it is possible to go for a super economy more efficiently than with regular drones.
 
Either player can spam Wild Drones, but the build order is more elegantnatural for Player 1:
 
# 1

==RhinoFang==
 
Similar to the Delayed Tia Thurnax opening, this build gets out a Shadowfang one turn later than the fastest possible route, but compensates with the resources to play Shadowfang + Rhino every turn. It is available to Player 2.
 
# DD
# DD
# AAD
# Shadowfang + Rhino
# Shadowfang + Rhino
# etc...

None yet.
 
==Double Scorchilla==
# DA
# Scorchilla x2
 
An alternative line is to delay the 2 Scorchillas and threaten them on subsequent turns, while building tarsiers. Like so:
 
# DD
# DDC
# DA
# DDTT
# Option to Scorchilla x2
 
===Replays===
 
None yet.
