3x Firestream
1x Twin Fireball

3x Sanguine Hunter
3x Combustion Demon
1x Mhgheddon
1x Afflicted Demon
1x Narayan Vampiress
1x Drakas, Imp Overlord

1x Curse Item
2x Demonic Link
2x Sanguine Thirst
1x Theft of Life

2x Burning Cuirass
1x Demonhide Mask
1x Eye of Bael
1x Hellstar

1x Disperse
2x Siphon Life

 Still a work in progress but I've trimmed the deck considerable from its first version.  Has anybody found anything that's crucial to a Warlock deck?

Mage Wars Academy / Want to promote Academy
« on: October 23, 2016, 09:59:37 PM »
I would love so much if this game took off around here.  I want to start promoting it weekly. If even only 3 or 4 people pick it up I'll be happy.  Have any of you tried to demo games before? Any tips about what or what not to do?

Mage Wars Academy / Disperse on facedown enchantments?

Can Disperse be used to destroy facedown enchantments?

Mage Wars Academy / Opening turns?
« on: October 22, 2016, 11:15:10 PM »
This is for Mage Wars Academy, not to be confused with Arena.

We've been having a lot of trouble trying to win with the Warlock, so I've been practicing him almost exclusively.  We've discovered that a first turn Mhegeddon, 2nd turn Vampiress, 3rd turn Guard with Vampiress and then summon Sanguine and putting the 2 damage onto the Vampiress is pretty good, except against the Beastmaster running snakes.  There is zero reason to put out Mhegeddon against a BM, as those snakes with Badger Frenzy will turn your closers into teddy bears. 

I tried using Combustion Demons and Curse of Decay to deal with early snakes but even that took too long, especially when he uses the staff to heal them.  I'm thinking the most economical solution is for the Warlock to pack 1 copy of Arcane Missles and hope for the best, but man that's 4 spell points in a game where deck building is already sardine-can tight.  I know Siphon Life gets past their defense but that's 6 Mana to take out a 4-cost unit.

Any ideas/experiences?

Mage Wars Academy / Priestess + Blessed Focus

Is the Priestess considered a Holy Creature?

General Discussion / Been out of the game for a couple of years...
« on: October 11, 2016, 05:01:46 PM »
So what's big now?  Just came across all the Wizard errata stuff, glad that was finally dealt with.  Are there any Mages that stand out as being too unreliable to use? Which ones are viewed as being perhaps a little too powerful these days?  Are people looking forward to Paladin vs Siren?

Lastly, is it possible to get the most updated printing of the core Rulebook somewhere?  I'll settle for pdf.

League / Tournament Play / Players in the Bay Area, CA?
« on: October 05, 2014, 07:13:42 PM »
Just picked up the game, LF players anywhere in the Bay Area. South and East Bays, as well as the Peninsula, are easiest for me to get to.  I could hit San Francisco, but only if I know people will definitely be there and I could play for a while (one game isn't worth the drive, unfortunately).

Anybody else play Mage Wars around here?

Spellbook Design and Construction / Help with finishing FM build
« on: September 26, 2014, 05:00:22 PM »
My wife and I are new to the game, just picked it up a little over a week ago.  I know FM isn't Tier 1 right now, nevertheless I want to make this the best that it can be.  Based on my scouring of different forums, here's what I've put together so far:

[spellbookname]Micah's FM[/spellbookname]
[mwcard=DNA01]2 x  Acid Ball[/mwcard]
[mwcard=FWA02]2 x  Force Hammer[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1j04]1 x  Battle Forge[/mwcard]
[mwcard=MWSTX1CKJ01]1 x  Enchanter's Wardstone[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1j08]1 x  Hand of Bim-Shalla[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1j16]1 x  Mordok's Obelisk[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1j21]1 x  Suppression Orb[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1j09]1 x  Temple of the Dawnbreaker[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1w04]1 x  Wall of Thorns[/mwcard]
[mwcard=MWSTX2FFE02]1 x  Akiro's Favor[/mwcard]
[mwcard=MWSTX1CKE01]1 x  Armor Ward[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1e01]2 x  Bear Strength[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1e05]1 x  Cheetah Speed[/mwcard]
[mwcard=FWE03]1 x  Falcon Precision[/mwcard]
[mwcard=FWE05]1 x  Forcefield[/mwcard]
[mwcard=MWSTX2FFE06]1 x  Lion Savagery[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1e28]1 x  Mongoose Agility[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1e29]1 x  Nullify[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1e40]1 x  Vampirism[/mwcard]
[mwcard=FWE04]1 x  Force Crush[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1e32]1 x  Regrowth[/mwcard]
[mwcard=DNE03]1 x  Stumble[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1e16]1 x  Force Hold[/mwcard]
[mwcard=FWQ01]1 x  Dancing Scimitar[/mwcard]
[mwcard=FWQ02]1 x  Defense Ring[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1q09]1 x  Enchanter's Ring[/mwcard]
[mwcard=FWQ04]1 x  Galvitar, Force Blade[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1q11]1 x  Gauntlets of Strength[/mwcard]
[mwcard=MWSTX1CKQ04]1 x  Reflex Boots[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1i02]2 x  Battle Fury[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1i06]2 x  Dispel[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1i07]2 x  Dissolve[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1i12]2 x  Force Push[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1i24]1 x  Seeking Dispel[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1i26]1 x  Sleep[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1i28]1 x  Teleport[/mwcard]
[mwcard=mw1i20]1 x  Purify[/mwcard]
[cost]Total cost: 103 pts[/cost]

Turn 1: Move and cast Battle Forge in FC , and Temple of the Dawnbreaker in starting corner.
Turn 2: Hand of Bim-Shalla, and either Suppression Orb if I think swarm, or I start equipping/enchanting myself.
Turn 3: Continue equipping/enchanting myself, move to highest threat creature.

So, 17pts to go.  Where would you recommend going from here?  Is Mordok's Obelisk worth the spellpoints?  What about Stumble? 

Cards that I'm personally considering:
-1 Mordok's Obelisk (high spellpoint cost)
+1-2 Thoughtspores
+1 Block (cuz I get it for cheap, not sure if it's necessary)
+ 2 Decoy
+ 2 Mage Wands
Extra copies of certain Enchantments like Nullify
+1 Mind Control
+1 Charm
Psi Orb
