my view on the earth wizard
« on: March 02, 2014, 01:13:40 PM »
Hi guys, i would like to have your comments on my view on the earth wizard , here's the build :


Wizard (Earth)
Attack1 x  Surging Wave2 x  Hurl BoulderConjuration2 x  Wall of Stone1 x  Wizard's Tower2 x  Mana Crystal1 x  TanglevineCreature1 x  Gargoyle Sentry1 x  Gorgon Archer1 x  Devouring Jelly2 x  Huginn, Raven Familiar2 x  Iron GolemEnchantment2 x  Stumble1 x  Nullify1 x  Circle of Lightning1 x  Force Orb1 x  Enfeeble2 x  Spiked Pit1 x  Hawkeye1 x  Marked for Death1 x  Rhino Hide1 x  Reverse Attack1 x  HarmonizeEquipment1 x  Dragonscale Hauberk1 x  Regrowth Belt1 x  Elemental Cloak1 x  Moonglow Amulet2 x  Mage WandIncantation3 x  Dissolve4 x  Charge2 x  Dispel2 x  Knockdown4 x  Teleport1 x  Perfect Strike2 x  Seeking Dispel2 x  Battle Fury1 x  Minor Heal2 x  Force Push
Total cost: 121 pts[/spellbook]

there's 121 points, because SBB does not yet have the promo cards. So what i really have is a one hurl rock and one hurl boulder, and not two boulders...

What i tried to do here is to make a build with which i can pin down my opponent with spiked pit/stumble/tanglevine/knockdown and then afterwards bash him with my Golem.  I would like to do this by using teleport on my mage wand, and getting the opposing mage closer to my golem.  Huginn is in there to cast "charge" spells (4) on the golem or to pump him with battlefury.  Gorgon Archer gives me defense against creatures in the sky, or makes extra ranged attacks against the mage (pumped with hawkeye). I think the idea and the spells are ok here, but i find it not so easy to get the combo work.  I think it is important to know the order  in which you should build this up...

anyone's got tips or experience with this kind of build ? thanks in advance !

-I'd swap wall of stone with wall of steel. One more mana for 2 more armor and 3 more health. Its a no-brainer IMO.
-To get the maximum efficiency out of your wizard's tower, you might want to consider adding some other attack spells. I always throw in at least fireball and jet stream to take care of various threats. It's nice to have an acid ball too but not as necessary.
-To make room for those I'd remove hawkeye, force orb, and one charge. Hawkeye isn't too necessary b/c the main strength of the Gorgon is the fact that her attacks inflict the weak condition. Force orb isn't really necessary; the SB points can be used more effectively. And then you don't need 4 charges. You really shouldn't need any if you're trying to do a golem pit build.

There are various threads on this forum talking about similar builds, I would encourage you to read up on them and see what other players have to say. They generally know better than I do ;)
