I would drop the galvitar and go for a shifritar/symbiotic orb combo, or maybe a shifritar/spiked buckler combo, given the defense ring.

The symbiotic orb is just such a useful little gadget to have around with its automatic defense (great against buddies or other big stomping things), while the buckler is both defence and attack, and often underrated.

Just so you know, Galvitar is one-handed. So it should work fine unless you're worried about mana costs.

There will be no "Tuesdays" this week (11/21/2017).  I'll see if I can get a game uploaded before next week, but the Thanksgiving Holiday might get in the way.

I'll post the 2nd place book later.

In terms of Warlords I'd recommend we all blame RomeoZero for beating me at Gen Con lol. Had I not been mandated to play Druid my Anvil Throne would have been a serious force to be reckoned with.

Sounds like we should blame you for losing  ;)

Bloodwave all day. I love creatures and the barracks economy and he's the best at it.

Just remember that anything leaving a swamp loses slow. As per the current rules that means they get a second action. They only lose an action upon entering the swamp of their own volition.

The vents also give Fellela something to do. I remade the book and counted it up again yesterday. After 3 counts I'm short 9 points. Mind you I'm having someone else check it too but I'm thinking a Mage Wand and a Colossal Crab.

Hi grga!  I found the subtypes "Troll, Soldier, Pitfighter" on Wychwood Ranger  It should be "Wood Elf, Soldier".  I'm really liking all that you've done with this builder!

I love the drain necro idea.  Played it myself a few times.

I hate to burst your bubble, but Plagued is a Poison subtype and Malacoda is Poison Immune.  So you'll have to find a different target for Plagued.

Hi, mages!

Can FM use his Deflect to try to avoid an melee attack and if he fails, then use Symbiotic Orb?

Only one defense can be used per attack. So, no.  :)

It's a little bit of a work around, but you can go to and select an Academy mage and then select "usable".  That'll eliminate some Mage only stuff, but changing the mage should find it again.

My favorite card is Selesius. I've always wanted to have her be the focal point to a book.

I need to disagree with a few folks here. Focused Strike is the best art.

this does NOT give you an extra action, if anything it takes the same action and mana as I would use on Mana efficiency. You can only cast 2 spells a turn, so holding 3,4, or 10 cards in your hand doesn't matter. It gives you options however to punish the over committed mage, but not much else.

Just to be sure I didn't play it wrong all the the time: you actually can cast three spells, as long as they are all quick cast spell, can't you?

No you cannot.  You have a Quick Cast action that allows a spell and a Full action which allows a Full Action spell OR a Move and ONE quick action spell.
