Dark L1 Enchantments M
« on: February 20, 2018, 02:32:58 AM »
Magebane ****

Another one of my favorite enchantments. And i know i am not alone.
Gear Up? Thats 4 damage??
Almost deserves 5 stars just because of it.

Only reason it doesn't is Druids..
MB doesn't shine against Druid - not much reason to put in on a Druid early unless you can do more damage than just that MB.

That brings me to the best counter - reveal your regrowth.

Other than that there is not much you can do. Hand of Bim-Shalla is decent.

Removing MB often doesn't do a whole lot-especially vs a Dark mage. "Have another"

Maim Wings *****

Five Stars??

Well the reason for that it is likely to save my butt vs flyers. One is usually enough.

It depends on how good your overall anti-flying tech are.

But i feel i need 1+ in most books. I'm even preferring it to Gravikor.

Marked for Death ****

Another classic :)

How good it is really depend on how many times you get that bonus.

So it should be a lot better if you have a lot of creatures/attack spells than if you run DoT.

I know everybody says that swarms doesn't work, but is that still true? (was it ever true?)

MfD is an awesome swarm card, and standard in most dark books.

Reveal cost means your not likely to reveal this on enemy mage really early.

Mass Cowardice 2-2 0-2 range Zone ***

Psychich, Fear
Dark OR Mind L1
Dissipate 1 * Epic

Mass Cowardice can only be revealed when an enemy creature is activated. Living creatures in this zone cannot make melee attacks against creatures of a higher level.

Looks good. Most creatures are less than level 5, so this could buy your mage 1 round of safety from some pack of creatures. Should be handy for a lone Warlock or Forcemaster.

I have not yet played a live game with Forcemaster Academy, but a card I'd be interested to see tested is Mass Cowardice.  It only works on living creatures and all of your creatures are non-living so you can get a lot of "free" attacks in and negate all of their creatures for a round.

So Puddin, Did you test it?

To answer biblio question does swarms work.  I am finding that swarms are very effective in the current meta. There is anti swarm stuff out but it's just something you have to plan and watch out for.  That said get this out with scout and now rolling 2 extra die.  Super fun.
