oddly enough, barskin is a healing spell, but regrowth is not.

You do see it coming from a mile away, though.

Kill the clerics.


If you were running a cleric pit, what would your back-up plan be?

Just like you could see a golem pit miles away, but the difference here is that it doesnt require 4 creatures to attack. You take the damage right away the instant you get teleported into the pit.

If I saw 6 of these in a zone. I would stay far away from that zone.

The thing is, teleport and push exist. Radiance Pit will replace golem pit :)
It is possible to have 6 of these out and 3 enchantment ready to be revealed by turn 5.

This really create a zone of death. Purify for 0 mana and you deal 6 direct damage.

Imagine 6 of this in a zombie zone. If you cast 2 healing spell, you can deal 12 direct damage. Or imagine you reveal 3-4 healing enchantment, 18-24 direct damage. Wow, you could kill a mage with that...

Alternative Play / Re: Dominate the Old Arena

Part of the fun of Domination is the threat/risk that your opponent(s) might suddenly turn on you and kill your Mage. If it were strictly "capture the orbs while being friendly with each other" it wouldn't be nearly as fun. Nobody in our group has won by killing the other mage(s) - yet - but there have been some very close calls and definitely times where the lead has changed because a Mage had to armour up and heal, lost most/all of their creatures, and lost their orbs.

Again, we mostly play 3 or 4 player Domination. I think that's where Domination really shines. Arena is great for 2 (or mini-tournaments of head-to-head Arena matches).

Of course, it should not be friendly and all. But if one doesn't bother with orbs at all and the other can't even start to get orbs because of the other mage bashing his face, there is no more domination in domination.

1) When you get V'tar each turn you can use it to gain mana OR to heal damage.  Remember to heal damage if you need to.
2) If your game is focused on gaining orbs try adding the spells that benefit from controlling orbs as you will get more bang for your mana than someone who is not "playing the game".
3) A large creature to get orbs for you can double as a useful guard.
4) Positional spells are very important don't leave home without them.
5) Having an alternate opening that's a little more defensive while not cramping your orb speed too much might be useful.

6) if your opponent is a straywood beastmaster forget your orb game and go and kill them as quickly as you can.   :-\

You don't understand. The FM is in my face on turn 2. I control no orb yet. From there gaining control of an orb is out of question. I am playing to not die.

Use the spawnpoint to put out a creature and cast Defend.  If you have any remaining mana, put on some armor (Brace Yourself is excellent for this) or force push the FM.

If you can save enough mana to wall her into a corner you will completely waste at least one of her turns.

Cast astral anchor in your zone and then teleport away.  Reveal astral anchor when she tries to follow you.

If she teleported in on turn 1 then she has a maximum of 1 other spell on her.  Destroy it...or cast a block.

If she teleports in on turn two you should know what her other two spells are, bearstrength or galvitar.  If galvitar and you only have 10 mana use Disarm and then Crumble it next turn.

Don't leave home without at least some defensive stuff.  Even a Cobra Reflexes is something.  Two Brace Yourself is two spellbook points.

If you're facing a Forcemaster then forgoe the spawnpoint and just hardcast a heavy hitter.  If she doesn't rush, use the creature to take an orb.


Get creative and never give up trying.

I know how to deal with a FM. This is not the problem. The problem is that at this point, we are no more playing a Domination game, but a normal Arena game. So why bother in first place to play Domination if it end up like this?

Prep a Wall of Thorns and a Force Push, out of face real quick. if you can do it move so you can get LoS to the other side of the WoT and prep another Force Push during the 1st QC and do it again. It be a long time before you have a round 2 FM in your face again.

Now, imagine that you were preparing to play a Domination game. So you put down a spawnpoint + a mana generating thing, so no mana left after 1st turn. So you start your 2nd turn with 10 mana. No WoT combo for 2nd turn. And if he see you have 11 mana on 3rd turn, he will case an armor on himself.

General Discussion / Will mats be available to shops?

I noticed that Academy mats are avaible in AW shop, but to Canada, it cost 40$ of shipping (that's unbelievable how expensive USA shipping system is). So I was wondering if they will be available in shops?

its two actions as you had to summon that altar of the iron guard, and with 5 life and 3 armor he could be killed, it is not changing too much. if bm quick sommon you get a guard for a quick action also, guard dog might give you more actions, etc

The altar doesn't really count because you cast it in your starting corner then move toward the battle. Once in the heat of the battle, it is a 1 action that require your opponent 2 action to get ride of.

But if you really want to count it, then Altar + 6 Temple Sentry, if they would be able to guard twice, would be 7 actions requiring your opponent 12 actions to get ride of.

and even if it would 5/3 is not unkillable a grizzly kills it in zone with an average roll

The problem is not that it is unkillable. It is that it gives you an action advantage if you can't one shot it. And using a Grizzly to get ride of this, is a serious waste of ressource.

1. Rushing is risky. If your opponent does have armour or ways to keep the pressure off, then they'll easily win by V'tar. It can be done in 2 player but is almost impossible (or at best makes you a "kingmaker") in multiplayer. But the risk of someone rushing at least means you need to be prepared (eg pack a Barkskin or Regrowth Belt of Heal or whatever).

2. We've had several come-from-behind V'tar victories. Again, multiplayer fixes it somewhat, as 2+ players can team up on the leader and try to keep her from achieving victory. Harder in 2 player matches - but still possible. We recently had a 2-on-2 team domination match with 16 V'tar goal, and one team got off to a +3 V'tar lead, but the opposing team clawed back, using Akiro's Hammer to take out Galaxxus, etc, and we had to call it when tied at 16 each because the store was closing. Your +4 differential would have been an impossible goal in that match.

3. We don't always play Domination. We always play Donination when we have 3 players, and sometimes when we have 2 or 4, but we play Arena with even player counts occasionally - and then the mat(s) come out. Mats are still great for Arena and Academy.

1- The thing is my first round is more economy oriented because Domination is more oriented that way. But then on 2nd turn I have a Forcemaster in my face. So I am a bit behind on mana to deal with him and then all my stuff need to be oriented to save my ass and kill him. I just can't focus anything on the V'Tar else the FM will give an end to my life.

It doesn't mean I automatically lose, but since a part of the my spellbook is oriented to deal with the Domination part, it has less tool to deal with the classic Arena part. So I feel it is a disadvantage to play Domination in Domination if one player is not playing it.

We consider it a problem because why bother making a spellbook for Domination if a normal spellbook will play just as good if not better.

2- We only play 1v1. So all this is about 1v1. And in 1v1, this is a real problem. With my warlord I usually can drop a Galaxxus on the 3rd turn, one turn before my opponent. From there, I just make sure to have the same amount of orbs than him and it is GG.

3- Yeah, I discovered that recently that using the mats for Academy is fantastic. Make it easier to pickup cards and move things around.
