Spells / Re: favorite creature

My favorite creature would be Malacoda.
I never use him, but damn, he looks cool, is strong as fuck and has justified balance in his price and his slow trait.

As for Reddicediaries: Wasn't Ini irrelevant during upkeep phase? I thought either player decides for his own creatures in which order he wants to resolve all the upkeep stuff.
Having int is important bc in the first quick cast phase of the next round you can heal the dmg creature without letting the opponent being able to react.

Favorite creatures
1. Ehren Enduring Paladin. He's so cheap and requires very little support. Whenever my opponent focuses him, I just smile and count just how much of a mana/action/sbp advantage.
2. Dorseas Stallion of Westlock. He's SO useful. Taking a lot of dot dmg? Dorseas will solve your problem. Your Ehren is about to die from rot but you have int next round? Dorseas will solve your problem. So on and so forth.

Wanted some feed back please on this here deck, I wanted to run with an angel variant but was not sure if
 few buddies would be good or maybe some kind of swarm with temple.  I really wanted to do this with the priestess because of royal armor and her crown will give them all +2 armor. This is what i got so far.

Some things that stand out:
1. I don't think that you have enough offensive power. Sure you can have BS angels, but 2 dispels and essentially all of your dmg is gone. Add some knights imo. Honestly, I think with a buddy priestess, you need a forge or more offensive creatues. Angels just don't cut that.
2.You have a TON of equipment. I really doubt that you will find the actions to cast all of that.
3. I'm not sure if the armorer is worth it if you have to hardcast him.
That's what I notice at first glance. Not a bad first attempt I must say. Refine it and get back to us!

Animate dead is especially nasty when used in the same way its used with double dragon.
Seriously, free creatures are amazing.

Sorry, what do you mean by this?

I've always found Animate Dead to be rather poor, although I get good use out of Rise Again on occasion...
If used in a certain way, you can use animate dead on creature that originally cost you 0 mana to cast. No spawnpoint, just when you cast them, they cost 0.

So a few of us got together for some practice today. Sadly one of our new players is moving a little further away but he's playing a lot on OCTGN now and he's hoping to make it for our big events.

I made two books to practice, siren and a wizard. Of course I left them both at home so I ended up practicing with my Warlord some more(the Straywood doesn't need practice I ran him a few days ago and owned.) Warlords coming along nice but I need more non-living in the book.

I fought a Force Master from Littlenog today. Seriously he's getting terrifying. I won due to a mistake he made....he won't make it again.

Fought a new and improved Necromancer book from Jimillia. She's going back to basics and trying an entirely different approach. It's scary if you're not ready for it. Why don't more people use Rise Again and Animate Dead? If you can manage your mana they're insane.

Thank you guys.

I'll make changes to what I have and post a new up soon.

I don't get to play much as there isn't a close active community near me that I am aware of.  When I do get to play it is pretty much against the same people (buddies).
Whatever we may say, remember the best book insight can only be gained through playing it a lot!
Join us on OCTGN! We'd love to have you!

Nice to see more players!
Let's see here:
Things that stand out:
1. You have hunting bow which requires a full action, but you only have crumble and disperse for removal of most things which also requires a full action. I'd recommend switching out those for dissolves and dispels. And maybe cut the bow as well since you need to be supporting your bigs as your main priority.
2. Regrowth belt seems out of place here bc you don't have a forge to save you the action and or mana. Put in another regrowth.
3. You have too many big creatures to cast more than 2 in a single game. Otherwise you'll likely be too slow in your advance. I'd cut Redclaw and the gorrila as the require a more specialized method of attack as opposed to Cervere and the grizzly that are solid in most any case with little support. I'd likely say run a couple wolves for cheap backup and maybe a falcon or two for flying support.
4. Cut both shift enchantments and put in another enchantment transfusion; if one big dies you can save the mana and action investment in it.
5. Akiro's favor instead of gloves of skill; works with your creatures as well as the mage.
6. No seeking dispel or arcane ward? You'll be in a heap of trouble vs certain enchantment stacking builds without them.
7. You need more ways to reduce armor; an acid ball and 1 or 2 rusts would be really helpful for this purpose.
8. Cut staff of beasts; I think it works better with stray wood and with so few creatures, you likely can't benefit from it as much.
9.Qucksand? Why not just use tangle vine which is in school and cheaper?
10. What's your typical opening and start vs different builds and mages?
That's all that stands out atm. Solid build for a newish player?

I think my top two have to be mage wand and dissolve/dispel.
Mage wand bc I play a lot of late game books and it helps me win the undoing game.
Dissolve/dispel bc their so vital to most books. They work really well with wands as well.

Hi everyone,

didn't forget about you guys :) Just added Academy Forcemaster and Warlord to www.spellbookbuilder.com

For a moment there it seemed like AW is going to help me out by providing spell images but in the end nothing happened so I did it on my own (again).

Since I did most of the work manually it's likely that I fucked up somewhere, let me know and I'll fix it.

Cheers
Thank you SO much!
Your presence in the community is a big plus. Your amazing.

unfortunately theasaris, Ballad of courage won't work on an iron golem. Hes got psychic immunity. Earth elememtal doesnt though, as ive recently found out.
BOC is useless on Earth Elemental bc his attack is a full action.

Welcome back red. Yes there's a lot of high level creatures here, and no spawn point to make use of the medi amulet. You're prolly not gonna have the full actions you need to get out all that gear and all those creatures. What's the plan bro
Yeah. I really need to review it lol.
Mainly I want to use med amulet and Cass casting remove curse to get a mana advantage along with a early banner.
Um... Cassiel isn't in the book  ;)
Well that is a bit of a problem.
I guess I must have accidentally removed her or something.

I AM BACK!
Seriously, I'm really trying to get back into Mage Wars!
As such, I wanted to make a new book.
The original idea for this book can be found in this thread: http://forum.arcanewonders.com/index.php?topic=17790.15
I've really wanted to make a meditation paladin book for a while and this is what I got.

The book at this stage is really rough and I can't playtest it atm, but I'm thinking I might have added too many high level creatures at this stage.
I'm pretty sure I need a chestpiece of some sort as well, but that will come after first revisions.
Please comment!

For some reason, Academy Warlock and Priestess don't appear as avaliable sets. Is this just on my end or what?
