What is the best creatures for the Forcemaster

What is the best creatures for the Force master

So I've been trying to find a good Buddy / damage dealers for the Forcemaster. So far I've been leaning towards the slow unmovable creatures since you can usually get a better deal for the price.
I would like your feedback on which creature and or creatures you prefer. (I do not have access to Octgn or my cards at the moment so this is all off my memory, which is admittedly faulty).
What is the purpose of a buddy / small army for the forcemaster? I believe the reason to have creatures for the forcemaster are:
-Mulpi threats: you do not want to be the only focus for all incoming attacks and curses.
-Shield: The act of guarding with your creature can take some heat form your mage. If the creature has intercept then you can maybe stop a surging wave or two. You will also want a creature that can be repaired / healed, since healing is cheaper (in sbp) then getting another creature if you may find yourself in a longer game.
-Action: Having another action is always useful thing to have; especial in you are running a heavy conjuration build: hand-bim, tower of light, etc.


So here is the question, what is your top 5 creatures (including the new mind creatures) for the forcemaster?
   At the moment my top creatures in no participle order is: Brute, Red Helm Knight, Thoughtspore, Togorah and Gorgon Archer.

You are missing Necropian Vampiress. The one I see most is her, the grizzly and bridge troll. Personally I'm pretty sure I'll stay in school once academy is released. I don't like spending 12+ spellbookpoints on a creature.  :)

When in doubt kill it with fire? I never doubt and crush them right away.

Hello Halewijn,
Thanks you the reminder about the Necropian Vampiress, I've add her to the list.

Not really gotten into FM myself - its going to change soon im sure :)

Steelclaw Grizzly & Necropian Vampiress seem like the classic choices.

I tried and liked Devouring Jelly (with Borgs Pit strategy)

Meditating Monk might get in there also.

Thoughtspores just amazing!

Anyway with Mind´s Eye and in school creatures, i think we will see a lot less of all of those out of shool FM creature books.

The forcemaster herself is the best creature buddy to have! :D (not really but she's still pretty good)

Vampiress is pretty good. Invisible stalker is good if you actually have him stalk his targets instead of attacking every single round. Spores are good with minds eyes, but if opponent rushes toward you they're really squishy and die fast and it's expensive to protect them. I would suggest using second chance on your spores if you really want them to live longer in that situation but that is expensive and I have yet to see anyone use second chance on spore to good effect.

I'd be interested to see if someone could use water elemental in a fm book in a way that the siren couldn't just do better. Ditto with whirling spirit fm and iron golem fm. I'm also interested to see if there's any way to make the giant wolf spider work in the current meta. It has a tainting attack that has a great chance of taint if the defender is restrained and it can give stuck conditions with its other attack. And it's psychic immune.

I am Sailor Vulcan! Champion of justice and reason! And yes, I am already aware my uniform is considered flashy, unprofessional, and borderline sexually provocative for my species by most intelligent lifeforms. I did not choose this outfit. Shut up.

I had some pretty good work with Sir Corazin back in the day. Two whirling swords of death to go with the FM's own, and a useful defence.

Not sure how he would go now, mind you. A lot of new cards since those days.
