PlantLord
« on: August 06, 2014, 11:18:45 PM »
So its a warlord, with a focus on the 7 mana plant creatures.  The idea is to get to NC with a panzerguard standard bearer, then lay [mwcard=DNC20] Vine Snappers[/mwcard] every turn. Protect it with fortified position and sacred ground. After that is done, if he still isn't in NC, use [mwcard=FWC15] Thorg, Chief Bodyguard[/mwcard] and [mwcard=DNC21] Thornlashers[/mwcard] to pull him towards your NC stack of doom.  Each non-veteran [mwcard=DNC20] Vine Snapper[/mwcard] does a six die piercing +1 attack, has 3 armor, and aegis one. Its like a golem pit, but in the open.

Oh, and the reason for mixing plants and warlord is:
1) 7 mana plants are spamable and durable with armor
2) vine snappers can do crazy damage, plus they get +1/2 melee from standard bearer/veteran
3) a Stack of Doom requires zone defensive enchantments, so either a holy or war mage
4) orc chieften is good at keeping the enemy on top of a stack of doom
5) these plants will ideally have 10 life, 2 regen, 3 armor, aegis one, heal 3 and a burn per turn at [mwcard=FWJ08] Renewing Spring[/mwcard], and have an intercepting guard. I'm considering [mwcard=DNJ03] Etherian Lifetree[/mwcard]

Interesting! You know that Thorg can't taunt mages though, right? So to get them there you need the teleport/thornlasher tricks you would otherwise: I suspect a lot of mages would just avoid your deathpit. Or use firestorm on it...

Your weakness is teleport and low spellbook card count.
 
You have no way of making use of your snappers once they are teleported to a corner.
 
When that is said i like it.
