Bro, I'll be by the booth bright an early.  Like I eluded to earlier, It was the main reason why I purchased gencon ticks.

Such a waste of a core mage.  Now, when everyone buys the core, they know not to pick warlock.

I'll take you up on that offer Rant. I'll take your tickets. As Gen Con judge I have use of a free spot in both the practice session and the tournament itself.

No I'm not competing(you can relax folks) but I always have people interested in participating who are unsure about the cost.

all yours. I will see you personally griz

I build my book the same way.  you may have missed my first post.  Let me make this clear:

THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH IN SCHOOL SPELLS TO MAKE THE AX WARLOCK COMPETITIVE.

I'm sorry if that was unclear.  MY Warlock is good but it relies on too many out of school spells.  I think this is a symptom of the necro.

the reason why I say it's a PT problem is because I don't see a PT maining AX.  BUT, I do see that the mages that PT main seem to have an answer to everything.

playtester vs player is how I see it.  In time (might be a long time) it will balance itself out.

fair enoug, but since remove curse, it makes the AX worthless.

Free participation is what I'm offering.  I personally don't see the AX as being competitive.  It's a shame because he is my favorite mage.  Had I known this was the way the game was going to turn, I wouldn't have purchased the tickets (probably not even the gen con tickets).

But I'm offering my slot free.

I'm predicting holy or force at this point.

so you must make changes to your book. as well as how you play it. stack fewer enchants, kill healing, run cloak to get light minus. there are a myriad ways to get around these obstacles.

You are obviously not an AX main

What I'm seeing is that playtesters (everyone has their bias) have a certain idea in mind and can't see otherwise from the actual players.   I'm open to going card by card from what has been released in relation to other schools.

I'll agree the cards are there, if you go out of school.

Zot, I've been playing this almost as long as you.

no way to remove enchants, while remove curse exists.  Big dice attack spells like luminous blast from holy.  Eye for an eye without an answer.  The new quick cast force master spells.

AX warlocks have the worst spawnpoint and familiars.  DOTS are garbage against heals.  Deathlink ( which I love) cost too  much and only works against living and if the warlock has damage. The newer cards force the mage to either take damage or life loss.

such a shame for a core mage.

I disagree strongly that your mage has been neutered, I'll grant he needs to be approached from a different angle but he's several options available still.

agree to disagree.  Just like straywood has been your main, AX has been mine. I've agonized (pun intended) over the cards.  AW has hurt the AX more than helped.  I was hoping for something in the academy forcemaster which did not come to fruition.

I have a tournament ticket and a practice ticket going to anyone who wants it.  These spots have already been purchased.  Anyone who PM's me can have them.  My favorite mage has been neutered with the recent expansions and I have no desire to compete.

AX Crown has been unplayable since DvN

Oh man.  This was the response I feared the most.  I have no more words.

I'm looking at my book, which has be refined with new expansions over the last four years, and 29 out of the 60 spells are out of school.

Dark is a school that is flush with spells, but have they been relevant for the Arraxian Crown? Is the Necro hurting the AXC Warlock?

I have my assumptions and bias, obviously.  But I'm curious to hear what others think.

Dropping him out of your libro when you expect to take a round of attacks is not a bad play. I could see him as an effective protector of archers.

This is probably the most viable play for this creature.
