Creative / Mage Wars Arena board printed on Vinyl
« on: December 02, 2012, 10:42:57 PM »
We had a vinyl sign/banner company print the arena board on vinyl so we'd have more boards to play on during organized play/tournamnets.  We also increased the size quite a bit.  You can see the original board sitting in the background.  No more crowding for beastmaster animal swarms on the board!   Thank you to the Mage Wars team for providing the PDF  Can't wait to play some tourney games on these! :cheer:

Spellbook Design and Construction / The Priestess as a MELEE TANK!?!
« on: November 11, 2012, 12:17:14 AM »
Last night I tested a deck that I think, after I fine tune some things, might thus far be my favorite build to date.  It was a priestess equipment build that also used 4 hands of Bim-Shalla.  This build has it all...  Massive melee power (12 attack dice and the possibility to daze stun when using her staff) and access to healing spells for low cost.  If you really wanted to go crazy, you could include 6 hands of bim shalla for 14 attack dice.  Couple that with a battle fury for two consecutive attacks, and your opponent will be reeling.  Not to mention, the hands can be used to boost Armor and to heal.  IMHO They are an amazing asset to any build, even the warlock who must pay triple for them.

The one glaring flaw I found is that most of your over-the-top hitting power comes from the hands...which are delicate, and hard to protect.  Once your opponent sees this, they will go after them and destroy them.   A tactic to counter this might be to include a few knights/gray angels and put them on guard in the zones that contain your would at least slow down your opponet destroying them.  I planned to do this, but then got overly aggressive, and sent my creatures into melee...   :pinch:

Gonna make some adjustments/tweaks to the spell book and try it again asap.

Anyone else tried this build yet?

Rules Discussion / Dissolving Wands

If I dissolve a wand, what happens to the spell that is bound to it?

Spellbook Design and Construction / Gun line deck?
« on: October 10, 2012, 03:19:15 PM »
Anyone made a successful ranged deck?  I'm thinking of trying one that is designed to slow the opponent down while he crosses the field and punishes him with ranged attacks (archers, invarium longbow +hawkeye, thunderbolt, etc).  With tangle vines, walls, teleport, stun, poison cloud, and force hold/forcepush, I think you could have a lot of movement denial. .  For reference I'll  probably be using the priestess since she has the most ranged creatures(archers), and build from there

How would you guys go about crafting such a spell book...and if you already tried it, what did you learn?


General Discussion / Armor +1 Tokens?
« on: September 12, 2012, 05:55:24 AM »
The priestess only item crown of protection allows a mage to add a +1 armor token to a creature.  I bought my copy at GenCon, and it doesn't contain any armor +1 tokens.  Were they left out?


Strategy and Tactics / Defeating the swarm?
« on: September 09, 2012, 06:09:02 AM »
I've played two games now (warlock v beastmaster & priestess v beastmaster), and both times I've fallen under a swarm sent forth by the beastmaster.  Im looking for specific weaknesses he generally suffers from and tactics and strategies you guys find successful.  Should I try to make it all the way over to his spawn zone and take it out?  I will probably play the priestess vs him again...what does she offer to counter and defeat the beastmaster?
Thanks in advance for the help. : )

Mages / Mage Play Styles
« on: September 03, 2012, 07:15:55 AM »
Can someone who's played the various mages describe their play styles?  I know it's a customizable spell book, and you can make different builds, but what are the different styles of play for each mage as intended by the designers?

General Questions / Mana Drain vs conjuration objects
« on: September 02, 2012, 12:57:25 AM »
I don't have my rulebook handy at the moment.  Does mana drain work if the mana leech creature hits a spawnpoint?  Does the spawnpoints controller lose X mana or does it only activate if the leech hits an enemy creature.


General Discussion / average die roll?
« on: August 30, 2012, 12:44:20 AM »
Someone good at math...  Can you tell me what the average die roll is on a mage wars dice?  Thanks.
