That would be very cool. But plz change it to unique.
Akiro, I have never prayed to you before. No one will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that one stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Akiro... so grant me strength! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!

Not unique, but maybe it will make the warlord a viable mage.

Since fif I feel the warlord is viable... you have the dispell/ teleport handicap but you can manage that problem.

Many different creatures, very strong earth magic, amazing equipment, conjurations, command spells ...

You're absolutely right. There are a few builds where Warlord (mostly Anvil) are actually "top tier" at the moment. They've been tested and they rock.

Argh not this again!


Agreed, I'm starting to feel like every forum post is spiraling into an argument about the same 5 topics. We need to try to stay focused here. This thread is about the last OCTGN tournament and how well the players did. The last related subject was about the winner of the tournament and the effectiveness of the deck, and instead we're arguing about Ballista... again.

Please, for the sake of the forums, can we try to move forward with this game instead of getting bogged down in this repetitive storm. We know there are some things that we would like changed in MW, we all care very much about it, but, at least for now, can we actually focus on the positive aspects?

Adding this to the discussion, my bloodwave warlord just beat Schwenkgott's Johktari bm  8)

To be fair, my thorg did kill his wolf (7 life left) in one blow.  ::)

If they can't win an arena match in an hour, they aren't viable. You won't advance at the gen con tournament going to time.

It's actually an hour and 15 min. You just need to win before time runs out.

Maybe not viable for Gen Con, but in general it is an unfair statement. I have no experience with Gen Con but it's really a niche of all the players. Geographically too far away from me.

I took a Warlord to the tournament last year. I ran goblins and butchers with spawnpoints to boot.

Whether I won or lost, I never went to time.
