Tournament Report for 09/23/16

overall the spellbook did ok. it went 1-2, and one of the losses was by one health. game 1 was against a forcemaster buddy build. i took out the bear but not before eating 7 dice to the face and also a couple  doublestrikes from galvitar. game 2 was a priestess in which i lost at time by one health. i had a lightning bolt prepared and didnt use it because i was unaware we were close to time. game 3 was against a priest. I won that match due to a deathlok and the lightning raptor.

Not to take anything away from the people who beat me because they all played great but i outplayed myself all night. i made so many dumb misplays that cost me so much in games 1 & 2.

Lightning Raptor was MVP, with 5 charge tokens and a bear strength he is outrageous though he is easily killable, gator toughness helps. as long as he is protected he is a major threat. this is my new favorite card in all of MW.

the jade gremlins and mana worms are worthless, 2 dice isnt enough.

the gorgon spear thrower isnt good enough. i cast it in all three games and at range one full action it just isnt playable in arena IMO. if it was a quick action attack it would be worth it. gorgon archer will be put in in V2

other than that everything else worked really well and the matches were really fun.

i will post version 2 asap. next tourney is Oct 2nd so we will see what happens then

Great write up man! I really appreciated the spear thrower vs archer info. The Wizard can be pretty tricky to play, with a few more games under your belt you will be a beast in no time!

I played the lightning raptor several times and find it is hard to protect him. He always died before he really gets powerful.
On the other hand it is the same as with for example Ehren. If the enemy mage efforts 2 concentrated actions in killing him, you win concerning mana and actions.

Two Lightning Raptors seem a bit much. Getting the second one going is my big concern with it.

I like the raptors and gator toughness and Dodge help them survive. The first one will be cast turn one with moon glow amulet turn 2 is gate and Dodge on lighting raptor. After that I can summon what I think is most necessary off of gate, if they turtle then I will cast second raptor if the are super aggressive I can cast archer, then after that I can just spawn gremlins.

I understand where the concern in playing two is but I think I can make it work

if they turtle then I will cast second raptor...

They are Unique - you can't have two Lightning Raptors in play... THAT is the concern with two - you can't cast the 2nd until the first is dead, and by the time you do that and wait a few rounds for it to gain strength the game is all over.

didnt think of that, will have to reconsider. thanks for pointing that out

What would you guys consider putting in with those 2 points? I'd like to have another creature maybe a flyer?

EDIT: something like this?
