Wizard Build help
« on: January 05, 2014, 06:41:25 PM »
I'd like a little help with my wizard build.  I didn't want to do fire because a lot of my friends here are playing fire wizards.  I'm not completely sold on the lightning but I don't know what to put in its place.

Wizard

Equipment:
Lightning Ring
Arcane Ring
Storm Drake Hide
Staff of the Arcanum
Elemental Wand x2
Moonglow Amulet
Elemental Cloak
Suppression Cloak

Conjuration:
Wizard Tower x2
Mana Crystal x3
Mana Siphon
Mana Prism

Creatures:
Screech Harpy
Mana Leech
Gargoyle Sentry x2
Darkfenne Hydra
Gorgon Archer

Enchantment:
Teleport Trap x2
Armor Ward x2
Chains of Agony x2
Nullify x3
Circle of Lightning
Reverse Magic x2
Block x2

Incantation:
Dispel x2
Dissolve x2
Teleport x2
Steal Enchantment x2
Drain Power x2

Attack:
Chain Lightning x2
Arc Lightning x4
Lightning Bolt x3
Thunderbolt
Electrify
Jet Stream x2
Hurl Bolder


Turn 1:
Lightning Ring
Mana Crystal

Anything after turn 1 is up in the air.  I like the idea of this wizard, I just haven't figured out how to play him right yet.  I always seem to be reacting to my opponent instead of being on the action.

Has anyone played a deck like this with success and can you give me any pointers to playing it?  Also does anyone have any ideas for tweaking the deck to make it work more consistently?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Hi!

Reading your spellbook, i cannot understand if you choose the mana denial way or not... my suggestions will follow the non-denial route.

Imho, i'd prefer Hawkeye over Lightning Ring (Hawkeye works also with Wiz zzap!) and Mage Staff over Staff of Arcanum (personally i don't play both); i think that Leather Gloves and Boots are almost mandatory ... forcing you to play Battle Forge! ;)

So:

-1 Lightning Ring
-1 Staff Arcanum
-1 Suppression Cloak
-1 Mana Crystal
-1 Mana Leech


+1 Hawkeye
+1 Leather Gloves
+1 Leather Boots
+1 Battle Forge
+1 Hydra/Grizzly (unsure here...just check spellbook's total point left...)

Enough for now, lemme know! ;)

Not Leather Boots. Eagleclaw Boots. Unmovable is better than +1 Armour.


Also Hawkeye stacks with Lightning Ring, so both could be used.

I'll take a look at those.  If I'm going to stay Lightning, I might as well keep the Lightning Ring and just add Hawkeye to it.  Two extra dice is better than 1 anyway.

That leaves removing 7 points (Staff of Arcanum, Supression Cloak, Mana Crystal, Mana Leech) and adding in at least 2 points (Hawkeye).  The BattleForge is  4 points for me (costs double).  So I can add in the Leather Boots (only one of the two we currently have open). 

Get some armor out and just get up there and throw stuff down to blow them up is the key huh?
