Warlock can use Enchantment Transfusion, too, remember.

If the Wizard is really dedicated to having Nullify on at all times, the Warlock can instead curse his or her own Demon, and then Enchantment Transfusion those curses over to the Wizard. Doing this won't trigger the Wizard's Nullify.

And if the Warlock is clever, one of the enchantments Transfused onto the Wizard will be a Nullify cast by the Warlock, to counter the Purge Magic / Purify that the Wizard will have prepared.

And then if the Wizard is clever, they'll have Destroy Magic available instead.

And then if the Warlock is clever.... You can see how this goes.
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

Yeah, standing between a pair of angry Darkfenne Hydras in a puddle of Corrode tokens is rarely pleasant. Luckily, it is usually brief. Either you escape, or you die in short order.

You're trying to get me to give something away. It won't work.

I just returned for a quick view at this forum and I have to say its kinda amazing that this thread is still active and people still play Watergate and Blasting Banker :D. I hope to have more time to play in the future, but for now I just wanted to say I will return to MW - its too good not to :P.

I have seen people be reprimanded for starting new threads when old ones exist. Basically the forum encourages necromancy as a result as people have to track down old threads to ask questions. I would not look at it as a negative thing. It seems like the same 4 or 5 people are commenting on most of the stuff so it is a good thing that new blood is popping in to ask questions and keep the forum alive.

Easy, guys.. I put my pants on just like the rest of you -- one leg at a time. Except, once my pants are on, I win Mage Wars!

Excuse me for asking what may be an obvious question, but what spell do you use with the wizard's tower? I didn't see this stated.

You will see there are 4 attack spells, think of them as a tool box and during the planning phase the most useful spell (a prediction of course) for the upcoming round is prepared. I.E. I played a wall of thorns and would like to Push Push Push (and have enough mana) the mage this round, so I prepare Surging Wave.

That book was built soon after the release of DvN so hasn't been updated in a bit, my guess is that the update would include an Acid Ball now.
