Skellie Necro Deck
« on: June 15, 2015, 06:13:50 PM »
Hi!
First post here as I just started playing Mage Wars last week.  Have only 3 of the boxes of cards so far.  Would be interested in any advice you could give regarding this deck I put together, which should be pretty explanatory.  Basically pull out the Death Ring and Libro turn 1 and then play whatever skeletons match the situation.

Deathlok and Idol of Pestelince are great together!

also Mongooge agility and Cheetah speed can only taraget living creatures, so they can only ever be played on your mage.

I presonally believe every book requires at least 1 force hammer to deal with Pesky congurations. Also a hurl boulder or a Fireball should be included as well.

Only two things of note are that purify is a little expensive in terms of points to be in the book of a poison immune Mage, and you might want to trade a couple minions in for something a little sturdier. They have too little health and no armor to give them staying power against some builds.

With just one spawn point, be wary of a mage or familiars getting near you. If the book is dissolved, even if you pay 3 life and 10 mana to recast, it will harm your tempo considerably.

Pretty much what Jason Bourne said and  I'll add that while Seeking Dispel is cool for popping Nullifies...so are cheap curses like Chains of Agony that are cool if by some chance they land, and they're half the cost spell book wise.

Mort is awesome and so are Death Fangs. I sometimes use a Grey Wraith just cause.

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

After a little play testing, you guys were spot on with your suggestions.  Dropping some of the weaker skellies that may not get played anyway is probably right.  The cheap curses are better for Nullifys than Seeking Dispels card point wise and provide some flexibility as there are now three ways to play the deck.  The Force Hammer is nice, but admittedly I didn't have this card when I first made the deck...  I also discovered the fun of adding Charge/Battle Fury.  The Bear Strength is a silly card as it's only if I want to go Kung Fu Necro with my Deathshroud Staff, but I'm having a tough time throwing it out for something more useful :) New version:
