Enslaver - The Shark Tank 6
« on: February 04, 2018, 03:55:27 AM »
Hi everyone,

This is the book I used in The Shark Tank 6

This is pretty standard for my Arraxxian Crown Warlocks. The original idea of the book is to abuse rise again to steal the enemy's creatures and get a big board presence advantage. Curse Weaving allows me to take the Rise Again spell back to my spellbook after the creature dies. So right before you plan to kill a creature (tough to do sometimes because the dice can be fickle), you quickcast and reveal Rise Again on the creature and then reanimate it next turn while getting the curse back.

Using the Raise Again is pretty good and fun - at least for you.

Shame that you forgot to use it - rather than trying to save your Dark Pact Slayer with the Vampirism on him i think you should have demonstrated your awesome strategy by putting Raise Again on him instead :)

Its also worth considering what kind of creatures you would love to bring back. And maybe add one.
Blood Demon not really good as it will lose vampirism. Sersiryx? Mhegedden? Khali-Gar? Darkfenne Bat? Thunderift Falcon/Blue Gremlin?

Does it?

We had always read it as the newly risen zombie gaining additional traits (Psychic Immune, Slow, Nonliving and Bloodthirsty +0) rather than having these replace the traits it originally had.

It doesn't lose the trait technically but it's a zombie now so it also has finite life. So though its still vampiric it can't heal at all
