More than what kind of mage will win GenCon i am more curious what kind of book it will be. Straywood Aviary and Hanmas Jinxed Training Weight were something that forced me to take another look at all Core set cards :)

Do you have a link of the book Hanmas Jinxed Training Weight?

Rules Discussion / Re: Remove Curse [Academy Priestess]

You can destroy 0 curse and then gain 2 mana. But this is a poor use of a full action imo and means you are about to lose :P

I hate USA > Canada shipping cost. Want to buy 100$ of stuff, shipping is 20$!
Get some people together and split shipping cost or get someone who has postal box just beside the border. At least You don't have to pay for shipping across the pond. I was really bummed after I learned that other players in local league ordered things from AW store, but forgot to inform me.

I know, but it still infuriate me that shipping the other way around (CAN > USA) would cost 10$.

Nice, free shipping on pre-order... too bad if you order something else at the same time shipping is no more free :( Wanted some playmats and dice.

General Discussion / All Priestess and Warlock cards spoiled
« on: May 09, 2016, 06:10:27 PM »
Tom Vasel spoiled them all:


Its to the left of the FAQ button.....

This is a bad dropdown menu. I just figured out that you can actually click on the Install part. I was only clicking on the Image Packs and Octgn Deck Converter and none of these was telling how to install MW module. Normally in a dropdown menu you do not make the parent part clickable, only the children parts.

Thanks Sharkbait.

I just installed Octgn to play MW. Why in hell there is no How To Setup and Install All The Stuff Needed Guide on ???

General Discussion / Re: War school, the neighborhood bicycle

I don't see why people complain about Novice card being War.. it doesn't matter the school they are, they cost the same. They could have created another magic School named "Neutral" that it would have been the same result. But instead they went with the theme and put the cards they wanted to be Novice into the School that fit it the most thematically.

I would add a rule to reduce some of the randomness of the dices.

Something like:

You can convert 3 blank dice into a 1 hit and you can convert 3 hit into 1 crit.

Alternative Play / Re: Dominate the Old Arena
« on: March 27, 2016, 06:33:31 PM »
So we tested it today. My friend was using a rushing strategy which ended up being the same as before. A total domination, without using the orbs.

So for our 2nd game we tried something. We used the Academy 2 rounds of no-aggression, no-movement. Basically, all creatures, inclusing our mages, were Rooted for the first 2 rounds.

This really changed the thing. I badly played (been so long since we played Mage Wars Arena, we were rusty) and still lost, but if I had used the proper strategy, it would have been a very different game. Having 2 rounds to be able to summon some creatures to defend yourself before the enemy mage get in your way really helps.

So next time, we gonna build spellbooks based on the fact that we have 2 rounds to prepare and see how it goes.

Me and my friend noticed this and we gonna test a variant for Domination with 2 players this week-end. I will give feedback after out games.

I wonder though, will there be Academy sized spellbook packs or something? It seems these mage expansions for Academy don't include a 40-pocket sized spell book with designs to match the theme of the mage. Far as it looks, there is only going to be the core set's Beastmaster and Wizard's books to use.

Sure, we could use spare Arena spellbooks, but those are huge 80 pocket books. Wasted space compared to the Academy sized books.

Would love more of the Academy 40-pocket design options in spellbooks sometime.

Personally, I would prefer only the cards and save on the cost of the spellbook. They could sell a pack of 2 books for those who want them.

They want to release the 4 main Mage, then the Forcemaster and Warlord both still need some love. So, its ok so far. Druid doesn't need any love. It is a very strong mage. Samething for Necromancer.

General Discussion / Re: Academy spoiler Disciple of Radiance
« on: March 17, 2016, 09:24:34 AM »
You wouldn't do it if you only had one Disciple out, but if you had 3-6 out, a healing plus 3-6 damage works for 5 mana. And it's only 3 mana really since you have to assume the charm's already been cast so the original 2 mana would have been a round or 2 ago. Plus the added benefits of 1 extra life for revealing charm, the possibility of it costing less with Enchanter's Ring, Ring of Asyra, etc.

plus the 5 mana for each girl.

I didn't say it wouldn't work. It's just not the most mana efficient way to get ~20 damage done.

20 unavoidable damage. It deny armor and defense.
