Spellbook Design and Construction / Re: Arraxian Pentagram
« Last post by Biblofilter on June 10, 2021, 11:18:24 PM »
Heres is the newest version of my PentaForge book:



1.Open with Battleforge + Enchant
2.Leather+ Pentagram and Mana Shard

Thoughts from latest game:
1. Battleforge
My Warlord opponent took out my BattleForge very very fast - i did play it in the near center.
It really hurt a lot.

So either place it in the starting zone or one of the zones bordering that or add another.

2. Fire Elemental
So strong. Took me a long time to get him out, so maybe add some Ritual or other mana improving stuff.

3. Sectaurus Dark Rune Sword.
Love it - or rather the idea of hitting somebody with the sword, put Rise Again on that guy and finished him with a Firestream :)
Cutting it as i never have the mana for it, so its that or the FE. Rise Again might get cut also.
But im still in love with Rise Again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lt1pve9E8EU&list=PLKFenfrT4VG8uGxqPnz9J1lXJJhS7qA6K&index=6
Link is to Shark Tank episode 6 where he talks about abusing rise again.

4. Elemental Wand x4
Firestream on that and get Pentamana is pretty good.
Four wands might be overdoing it.
On a sidenote i made a version without any Firespells or attacks, which isnt that bad of an idea as alot of guys run fireprotection.

5. Sanguine Hunter
Pretty nice early creature. I did run my mage out of the Pentagram zone, and therefore had to put the damage on the hunters which ain't as good.
I have to come up with something better :)

Thats it for now.

Spellbook Design and Construction / Arraxian Pentagram
« Last post by Biblofilter on June 10, 2021, 11:34:24 AM »
Hi  ;)

Just gonna make a few post back here from time to time.

Heres a new book i am working on atm (along with a lot of others)

After the suggested rule change to make all mages channel 10 and the Incorporeal change should make Pentagram viable (maybe even one of the best creature spawnpoints now)

I just lost a fun game vs Werekingdoms Siren - so i am going to talk about that game, and try to find out what changes i should/could make.



Regarding the actual game: I really wanted to use Meltdown in a game. I casted two in two rounds - first i think the Siren discarded 1 equipment and took 5 damage. In the second round she only keept her cheast piece and therefore only took 1 damage. It seems pretty nice to get rid of 5 pieces of equipment and do 6 damage for 14 mana and just two actions, but i think it lost me the game. Using one of my PB would likely have been better - for only 1 action and 5 mana i likely would have stopped 3-5 healing instead.

Second thing id like to talk about are my star creatures the Blood Demons. They are pretty good but sometimes Bloodthirsty means you cant really do what you really want to do. So i think i could use a little more movement spells - teleport, force push etc.
Flying is amazing but i did run in to a thing similar to running pest creatures - the opponent mage can basically just move two and escape all or almost all your creatures. So i think i need ground support that can hinder my opponent and guard. So just put a few more level 1 and 2 back in?

I never really had the mana or time to cast Kassandra or the Fire Elemental, so either i come up with a plan how to do that or i cut one or both of them.

Meltdown: Based on only one game - i think the first one your opponent will take some life damage - the second one hurts. So 2 seems like a good number.

I could use a little more buffs and direct damage dealing (remember to cast Hawkeye next game) and add some of the missing stuff.

Other than that - thoughts are welcome!

Events / Mage Wars Summer 2021 Online Tournament!
« Last post by Coshade on June 03, 2021, 12:38:25 AM »
    Mage Wars Summer 2021 Online Tournament!
    Tournament Structure and Outline
    • This tournament will be played in 2 stages. The first being a round robin in smaller groups. The top 2 of each group will advance to the single elimination stage. There will be a semi finals match, and the winners of those will advance to the finals for taking first place. There will also be a third place match for the losers of the semi finals. The goal of this tournament is to do a run-through of any balancing needed for new cards.
    • If you would like to enter the tournament, email us at Arcaneduels@gmail.com. Or you can sign up on Challonge at https://challonge.com/MW2021SummerTournamnet
    • In order to enter, you must commit to playing one mage wars game per week. Failure to do so will result in a loss for that week. Repeated games missed will result in disqualification
    • The start date for this tournament is June 27th.


    Prizes
    For a prize this tournament, we will be giving an opportunity to the winner of the tournament. Youíll be allowed to choose any spell or mage card and direct the creation of alternate art for a promo card. This will be directly with a Mage Wars artist through Arcane Wonders. It has to be PG-13.

    The weekly schedule will be as follows:

    On Challonge your matchups are announced. Feel free to play any matches that you have currently assigned too.

    Competitors have from the matchup announcement on Sunday until 2359 Central US time Saturday to get their matches played and the results emailed to arcaneduels@gmail.com.
      *You can email the result in a text format, but we also want the OCTGN inherent replay files for possible later casting.

      Ideally, there will be a featured match up each week. We would love to cast your replay files.  We do not guarantee your match will be casted, but will try our best!
    Rules
    • If one party has been unresponsive in scheduling a match, they will forfeit the match and tournament
    • If attempts have been made by both parties to schedule a match and it just doesn't line up by the end of the week, let Arcane Duels know and we will try to help on a case by case basis (typically by having the match scheduled for the following week with those competitors being required to play 2 matches during the next week). In some cases both players will be disqualified.
    • If neither player has attempted to schedule, both will be given a loss
    • If required, a judge makes the final call on a rule. Any argumentative discussion that takes an excessive amount of time will receive a warning. If it continues that player will be disqualified.
    • If a player gets disconnected and dropped during a tournament match it will be considered a loss for that player
    • All cards released on OCTGN are legal to use. All promotional cards available on OCTGN are also legal. If there are playtesting cards that update currently existing cards, you must use the newest version. For example you must use the Wizard that has Arcane Zap for 2 mana instead of the older version.
    • Players will build a spellbook with the standard amount of spellbook points and restrictions. They may change mages or books between games if they wish.
    • Any promotional cards that have been officially released in a set will be considered to read as the official released in a set version
    Restrictions And/Or Clarifications
    [/list]
    Other info
    If you wish to be a caster please contact me at Arcaneduels@gmail.com. Even if you cannot stream you could always join me or anyone else casting the game. Players are allowed to cast for games that they are not competing in.
    Judge positions will be less easy to apply for. If you wish to be a judge then you will not be allowed to participate as a contestant in the tournament.
    Matches must allow official commentators and judges in as spectators. Non-Official Tournament spectators are not allowed to spectate a game unless both players agree to it. Some games will be streamed live, and may be posted on youtube for all Mage Wars fans to view.

    Logistics
    ALL coordination is suggested to be done through email. We also have been accepting Discord messages as well. Make sure to include Arcane Duels in your message so we can easily track match up coordination (everyone should CC arcaneduels@gmail.com or Coshade when figuring out when you can play your match). This helps us see if someone has been unresponsive and can take appropriate action
