Strategy and Tactics / Re: Can Certain Mages Not win vs Others?!

Sorry for necro-ing, was curious what ended up happening here.

General Discussion / Back after a long time, many questions
« on: September 13, 2017, 01:35:54 PM »
Hello all!,

I am just coming back to Mage Wars after a regrettably long hiatus, and had a few questions about the current state of affairs/what I missed (skimmed through the news section but it was surprisingly sparce for the last few years). For the record the last set I got was Druid vs Necromancer.

So first off, I am planning on getting Academy. I think it would be a nice stepping stone before I get people into Arena. I am planning on starting with the strater initially, to get a feel for it, but was wondering what people thought of the expansions. Which ones are the most fun to play, and which ones have cards that are specially good for Arena?

What is the general consensus on Domination. Is it a good alternate game mode?

Obviously getting Paladin vs Siren.

Also heard snippets about Lost Grimoire. Is this a collection of promos from before, or is it akin the the core spell tome, or just new spells not coming with Mages?

Is there news on things to come? Like a forged in fire esque set for forcemaster/wizard?

Regarding packs, how is the card distribution. I remember buying 2 copies of the core set, and I think 2 copies of Forcemaster/Warlord in order to have enough copies of spells. Are the sets including 6x level ones and 4x level 2? or is 2 sets the go to? Are the card lists posted somewhere? I remember there used to be a checklist of sorts, but I cant seem to find it through my brief perusal of the site.

Regarding errata. There was 3 cards errata'd when I was playing, Hand of Bim Shalla, and 2 others that I forget. Has there been any other errata's (I think i saw something about Wizard?) Where can you find the errata and is there some way to get the errata'd cards?

Finally regarding promos. Is the policy still that every promo will eventually be released in a set? I also saw mention of alternate art cards for Paladin and Siren if you preordered. Does that mean they wont have an alternate Mage in the future? Are these cards still available?

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this and answering questions!



Player Feedback and Suggestions / Battlegrounds: Domination card count
« on: February 22, 2016, 08:30:34 PM »
Hey, sorry if this sounds whiny, but is there a reason for there to be a few cards that dont have their full card allotment (6x Lvl1 and 4x lvl 2+). It seems an effort has been made to make it so that you have maximum possibilities out of one expansion (not needing to buy it multiple times), but there are a few exceptions in Domination.

3x Altar of the Iron Guard
3x Slaknir
3x Skeelax
3x Oscuda
4x Gale force Ring

All the other cards have the right number of cards associated with them (except epics, which we get two of, which is more than generous).

I was just wondering if there was a reason these extra 6 cards werent included or if something went odd and resulted in me getting 11 ssclacks instead of those other cards?

Hey Koz, it was mentioned on the facebook page, my cut and paste skills are lacking but here is what was said:

Branden Voss I think everyone would be well incentivised by some more necro or druid spoilers.

General Discussion / 4 player expansion
« on: September 20, 2012, 02:32:51 PM »
Is the four player expansion going to be that ( a four player expansion) or is it going to be like a second version of the starter set. I.e if I want to play this game with multiple people, should i get one core set and wait for the four player expansion, or should I wait and just buy the four player thing?

It was a card shown in one of the newsletters, they are demons like flaming helions, but shortranged, but more armor and cheaper.

Spells / Drokkar?

I just noticed, there are no drokkar listed in the starter set box anymore. I was excited to do an infernal legions deck with them and flaming helions. Why were they set back? when can we expect them released?
