1 Evade         
1 Dissolve         
1 Clear Mind         
1 Sleep         
1 Rouse the Beast         
1 Teleport         


here's the 3 first rounds i was thinking about :

round 1 FA : warlord to my NC ; QC hand of bim shalla
round 2 FA : cast bloodcrag minotaur (BM) ; QC rouse the beast on BM ; BM : move 1 to one zone away from opponent
round 3 FA : cast cheetah speed on BM ; QC : lion savagery on BM to beef up charge...

then activate hand on BM , and charge with BM at 4+2+2+1 dice !

next rounds : cast battleforge and equip warlord (defense + helm (battlefury ?)); further build up of Minotaur : critical strike, rhino hide etc...

i was also thinking of casting an enchantment transfusion on the minotaur, in case it gets killed, to transfer the enchantments to my own mage !

You guys think this could work ?

That's not a bad idea at all. Yeah I think it could work but you're gonna have to really protect that Minotaur. Maybe get the Armory when FiF comes out to beef him up some more.

You're probably going to want a wand of healing to stop the inevitable sleep on your minotaur, or just use a slinger and hope to roll a crit or 2 to wake him up.  Maybe 1 more perfect strike to break blocks?

Hey! Glad to see that someone picked up my idea. :)

I can only agree that the Minotaur needs to be protected at any cost. Wand of Healing sounds like a good idea because it helps to get rid of any kind of troubling markers. If you run into Forcemasters on a regular basis, Mind Shield is great as well (pre-emptive instead of getting rid of markers afterwards).

No Nullify and 1 Dispel? I know they are expensive, but still.

yeah magehorst, i did like your idea very much, but i gave it my own little twist, by adding some more enchantments, as i prefer these over incantantions...

i tried out this build in OCTGN the other day, against a beastmistress..and i really scared her of !

what i think i miss most in this build, are tools to neutrailize creatures : i had to use my tanglevine and a sleep to neutralize her makunda and her cervere, but after that i didn't have anything left...luckily for me, at that moment i was very close to defeat here by charging with the beast and attacking with my elemental wand.  I gave the final blow with a hurl meteorite at range 3 !

i'm definitely going to include some nullifies, but i'm also thinking of including a knockdown or two..a cheap way to incapacitate oposing creatures / mages, no ?

Oh yes! I run Knockdown in almost every spellbook (funny thing: whenever i do NOT, I find myself in a situation where I would kill for a copy ;) ). It's extremely handy and cheap for getting rid of guards, punching a flying creature... If you want to stay within the trained schools, another Quicksand might be a good choice.
