Spellbook Design and Construction / Re: Frozen - Elementalist

Love that opening on elementalist! I also use it. Might be worth it to skip the deep freeze on the golem and see if they ignore it or try to kill it. Could get the elemental out faster.
Spellbook Design and Construction / Frozen - Elementalist

Total cost: 43 pts

This book was made for casual play, no tournament or competitive play in mind though it can be turned into one. I'll let you guys have fun experimenting and playing the book with that direction in mind.

T1: 7 mana
amulet of attunement (activate any glyph), use the amulet to deactivate glyph to gain 2 mana, mana shard (activate earth glyph)
end 0 mana

T2: 8 mana
ice golem (activate air and water glyph), use amulet to deactivate water glyph to gain 2 mana, deep freeze face down on golem
end 0 mana

T3: 8 mana
reveal deep freeze, attack with golem (pay 1 mana to use earth glyph and give golem 2 armor), use amulet to deactivate air glyph for 2 mana, ice spikes (air and water glyph already active so nothing..could use air when golem attacks for guaranteed freeze or water to heal 2 damage if I took any...or just save the mana for the next round.
end 1 mana if I didn't use a glyph, 0 if I did use the second one

This is generally how I play with the book.  Save mana when you can to get the elemental out. the amulet helps with this so much (which is why I have 2). the wand is in here to stack freeze markers and it helps bank mana if I am only using that and possibly punching or guarding with my main action. 

The water glyph and ironvine help mitigate damage to keep my mage alive.

The general idea, though, is to use freeze conditions to DOT enemy creatures and eventually the enemy mage.

I had extinguish in here at one point but I can get so many freeze conditions out with attack spells, creatures, and the wands that I didn't need them.  If I am burned then the wand can offset that with freeze conditions and then I will heal with the water glyph.  I also debated the acid ooze but DOT from freeze makes armor irrelevant. 

Sweeping strike on an ice golem is bananas!

Gator toughness is for my mage, obviously.

Twister is here in case an enemy swarm gets out of hand, and I can activate an air glyph so that my mage or a creature can get +4 on an effect.

The staff is here because  mana for infinite defense is really good.  Yes, I have to pay 1 mana, but I have the shard to offset that, the amulet to off set that, and I will always have a glyph active.   I can have the staff and the wand out at the same time too! add a freeze with the wand, shoot an attack spell (we'll just say 5 mana beam of frost) to active a glyph(s), use the amulet to gain 2 mana, and use the staff to dodge attacks (hopefully). That 1 turn cost 6 mana, I got potentially 3 freeze counters on, dodged an attack, and hopefully I will have a creature to swing in for more freeze counters.  Yes, there is set up but that is a crazy turn!

What happens if I go up against an elementalist using frost creatures? shoot the mage and hope you kill them before they kill you.

Let me know what you guys think. I am eager to get some feedback on this.

2 weeks to gencon 2019. super stoked.

...and the Trophies have arrived!  Hone your skills now, people, because there will be only one Champion of GenCon and you don't want to fail due to lack of practice.

thanks to all who were able to make it. it was a blast. events like this cannot happen without the great players like you all. sorry to all who were unable to attend, hopefully next time.

also, sorry to the folks who wanted more details via the stream while the event was happening. it was not easy to watch comments during play because of the placement of the pc controlling the stream. we will do a better job next event if we stream it. which I hope to have happen again. perhaps we can set up a live channel for voice chats too via discord. that would be way cool.

we had 4-5 tables going near non stop. we had 12 players, and many who wanted to come but could not make it. we held a 10 player tournament. sharkbait vs biblofilter for the final match. congrats to sharkey for the win. no idea how many total matches were played over the weekend but it was a lot.

I am still tired because we stayed up so late every night...

again, thanks to all who made it. I really do appreciate the community we have. a bunch of really awesome people. a special thanks to those who travelled far to get here. jbuzzsaw, stanyer and the guest of honor biblofilter.

I look forward to the next time when we can meet again.

For the Siren, I like to open with Shallow Sea followed by the Kraken. This leads to either Naiya or Meeren Harpooner. However, I don't think I have a good winning book with her either. She is probably much stronger in Domination format where her terrain advantage can help control the zones with orbs.

@puddinghead: sry man cant make gencon this had a stroke so used some vaction to cover that would have for gencon next year i hope
She is a finesse mage to just forcemaster, but is really fun to play.  I find the turtle seems to really help her alot and gives her a good lvl 2 monster option. I think its better then lvl 3 that she has IMO.

My apologies... I probably live the closest, but could not make it this weekend, which has turned out to be incredibly busy. Next time!
