Once again you will catch a theme with my spellbooks, they are designed to meet a 3 turn rush agro build and I hope some flexibility for other types of books. I have gotten much better at playing the control type build this play style requires.  Typically I bring out the Crossbowman the first round and a Brace Yourself (one of my favorites in the set). I then continue to build out with the Panzergarde and then the Alchemist. I have the option for Talos in this build. I have gotten him out once and he was devastating with a Battle Fury and Charge to wipe the opposing mage from the arena.

You will note a large number of cheap Outposts, by round 5, I typically have 2 out I like to drop a Garrison Post on the other side of the board from where the action is, remember this is against a few big strategy. I then bring out the Goblin Builder with the Garrison Post and start moving him 1 zone and drop Altar of Domination, then move one more zone and drop another outpost or my mage will drop the third one,depending upon pressure. I then keep the Builder moving so he is 2 zones away from the nearest Outpost and ready to keep 3 Outposts going on the board so as to keep the Altar from stalling out. Once he builds an Outpost the next round he moves twice again to the next zone in preparation for an Outpost. Since he is very fragile I try at all costs to keep him out of the action and when the opportunity presents itself I have placed a Brace Yourself on him for insurance.

This book has won the last two games against the Warlock (Arraxian Crown).
