Ok so I didn't get a chance to use the Meditation Amulet but I can certainly see where I'd have time to use it. I tend to have about 2 turns a game where I'm just sitting around waiting for my creatures to eat people.

I did remove the Graveyard after a glaringly huge hole in the strategy was made painfully obvious. I removed the Graveyard and put in a couple of Block! I'm sad to say I noticed I had no Blocks only after my Necromancer took it's first defeat to a VERY over zealous Warlord who kept getting in close and casting Hurl Boulder for ridiculous amounts of damage(average 11) at me. Put the Blocks in, and they saved my life. Never missed the Graveyard once.

Ah ha! Your spot on. Someome can avoid the minions and go right for the mage. Blocks would be needed. I assume he dissolved cloak?

No he Force Pushed himself and used Cheetah Speed/Mongoose Agility. Covers the map FAST! I'm actually gonna steal that tactic myself honestly.

Lol. Yeah, not a bad tactic. In a local tourney I've seen a FM in round one move 2x, then tele a couple of squares to get into a necros face  immediately. FM had init, so round 2 was QC galvitar,  then I believe he summoned creature of his own. Necro never had time to set up. That's why this game is great, so many tactics! Lol. I have my hands full tomorrow. Last game of tourney for me, and its FM vs FM. Hate mirrors. Plus, I believe he's bringing out grimson round 1. He is going to expect mind control, so I'm sure he's packed dispels. I was thinking of maybe goung Brogan for the unavoidable, but I have to get rid of Grimson first. I'm pretty sure he will have teleports to protect that sniper as well.

You could simple Sleep Grimson. Make them waste their time hitting their own piece. The Force Master is my one weakness in that I generally do  poorly against it regardless of my mage.

I love sleep just for that reason - there's something so satisfying about making them take a wack at their own creature.

I hate sleep in that it's far more often used against me than for me lol. I can't count the times I've had to go kick my own grizzlies cause they all of the sudden think it's nap time.

With the Priestess ability or the staff of healing. Otherwise go kick the poor sleeper.
