That's a lot of reanimated bone and flesh put together by dark magic there friend. It makes me think of dungeons and Dragons though where one good Turn Undead would fix a lot of that for ya.

What we must all remember is no matter the game we were all newbies at one point.

That is what happens when you have the grave yard and libro running at the same time.

Someone needs to start running Firestorms.

At one point I had to start using a 2nd set of action markers because I ran out of yellow ones. Firestorm does hurt, but if they don't die Mort reconstructs them.

Do you run all skeletons, all zombies, or a mix? I've been trying to run a mix lately.

How do you typically open? Do you harmonize graveyard and/or libro? Do you use Meditation Amulet?

round 1 graveyard and ring
round 2 libro
round 3 2 skeleton minions and harmonize graveyard
I normally cast the meditation amulet some time around round 4or 5 when I have enough mana to cast it but not another creature.

Harmonize on Graveyard makes sense, but not on Libro. That makes Dissolve too tempting. So far I've been playing with Libro rather than Graveyard, since a Graveyard build seems similar to a Lair build but with a better long game and a weaker early game. Using both seems like it would be too slow, but I may give that a try at some point.

What creature mix do you use?

So far I've really liked Venomous Zombies and Skeletal Knights. Crawlers and Minions felt too slow and not threatening enough. I need to try using Brutes at some point. I haven't done much with the other skeletons yet.

I have developed a liking for Shaggy and crawlers to feed him.

actually I find the skeleton minions do quite well do do the crawlers once something is wounded. Mostly cheap creatures with 2 knights, 2 archer, mort, and shogroath as big creatures. I don't even always be shogorath out.
