This book isn't terribly successful, I am about 50/50 on my win/loss currently, but it is a lot of fun to play! One of my favorite academy books to play!

The main goal of the book is to push the limits of how much damage you can take, or life you can lose, so you can win the game.

T1: 7 mana
Mhegedden
end 1 mana

T2: 8 mana
face down iguana regrowth on mage, sanguine hunter (put the damage on warlock)
end 3 mana

T3: 10 mana
combustion demon (put burn on an enemy creature), eye of bael, attack with hunter (hopefully gain a mana)
end 2 mana if hunter didnt gain mana, 3 if it did

T4: 9-10 mana

from there you just have to fee out the game. You can unholy armor T4 for 2 mana, and demonic link on mheg, disperse or crumble and unholy armor, etc. Unholy armor and rage tonic is another good option.

By T5 I would qc soul reaper and attack.

I want to make room for sweeping strike but not sure what to cut. 

I would only reveal iguana regrowth if both soulreapers are taken out.  One regrowth is for my mage, the other is for mheg.

I have the wand in here because it is a shield so I can have it out with soulreaper. swing in with soulreaper, heal and then add a burn to keep up the pressure on the enemy.

I had, in a previous version, volcano and extinguish for my mage but the payoff want worth it. Yes, zone attack but I want to keep my creatures as healthy as possible and I can already stack the burns with combustion demon, the wand, and firestreams. 

Let me know what you guys think.

If anyone has any ideas to include the mask, let me know what you would swap. The adding 1 damage to my mage to reroll soulreaper would be worth it, just have to find sbps and actions to get it set up

At first glance I'd say Demonhide Mask is worth it over Combustion Demon #2. Might also keep your SoulReaper #2 safe as well. Play it on Turn 4 and Firestream something.  Another option for your book is an Arcane Ward--so many uses!

That's a good call on combustion demon.  I have 4 demons in here because the original iteration of the book had the spell where you take 1 damage for every demon and they all get melee +1, unholy blood ritual?

I am also debating on swapping one regrowth for an overgrowth for my mage. Use the 1 regrowth for mheg and the overgrowth for me to get more dice on soulreaper and recover a little from the mheg life loss.

If I cut a demon then reprisal doesn't seem worth it, really.  I could use that sbp for arcane ward.

Thanks for the feedback!
