Awesome match i really like Dr Mambos Siren :)

Not that Rock, Boulders and Meteorits are bad in any way!


Im still not sold on Mana Flower/Crystals -  should i have learned by now?
You don´t have a Mage Wand in this book - that should mean you should loose a long game, but it also means you can afford to go out of school and put "crasy" stuff like Purge Magic and Reverse Attack in.

Purge Magic is a great spell - especially if your meta is enchantment heavy - and who really plays in a meta without enchantments?
I prefer Pillar and Arcane Corruption over Purge Magic.

But i do think that you Shark should play less Purge Magic (and Reverse Attack) and that i who "never" run those, should do it a lot more.

Its all about mind games really.

To get back to the whole Mana discussion - i think you be better of with lets say Hand of Bim Shalla and Balista in round one. Zot might not forgive me, but HoB might just be better than Renewing spring :)

Other than that i think Gurmesh would be a good option in this book. He already almost was worth casting just for hes fighting stats and now with all those new command spells he really should be worth it.
Spending 8 round summoning creatures not likely to happen.

I like your counters to armor - Vorpal Blade + Critical Strike and Stalagmite. Morning Star amazing vs stuff with a defence. Halbard might be overkill? as it kind of block your other weapons and Ele Wand.

You might have a bit more cheap equipment - as you said in the video Steadfast Boots are kind of a two edged sword it might be nice to have another pair of boots.

Haven't been in the forums recently.

I see what the book is trying to do, but it is mana HEAVY and action heavy.  You need some kind of action relief to get any thing done.

Hit me up on Discord I'll look this over at work today and see what ideas I have for it.  I like the minimalist approach.  I'm trying it a lot in my new books to.
