I liked it, I even uploaded the game we had in which you used this book! :)

It certainly was a surprise to suddenly see the holy Alfiya in the dirty hands of a necromancer.

I hate to even attempt to say it but i think you need another repeatable light attack. Maybe temple of light? I know, its ONLY 6 SP. No big deal right? Lol!

You're not wrong Romeo! It also needs to have Dorseus :D

Both Enti and I have done a video with it, I'm dropping the linkz:

and

Both were very fun to play!

You should find a way to throw in a rock or boulder. If you sacrifice Alfya your can melee attack for +8 piercing 8 then follow it up with a QC attack spell that gains piercing 8 as well. Its a great finisher/last ditch attempt to win.

Holy bananas, I never realized the piercing worked on ranged attacks. That's interesting.... *Cackles madly*

Why spells like 2x regrowth and theft of life if one of your main cards is altar of skulls and deathlock?

When in doubt kill it with fire? I never doubt and crush them right away.

Hm, well regrowth is just a good spell.

In the game with Enti, I cast it and regenerated once before he casts his own deathlock. A net gain of 2 heal and 3 mana.

1 for the mage is minimum I think, and maybe 1 extra for Alfiya is decent enough, or two for the mage if the first gets dispelled right away.
But of course you could argue that, with the redundancy in arena-wide finite life, the redundancy in regrowth is less likely to be needed.

I think when I made the first iteration, I was not actually expecting to ever get the altar of skulls really going, but so far it has worked out.

You could probably take 1 regrowth out to free up some sbp.

Theft of life is in-school, stacks with regrowth and works towards countering Dorseus halfway. (At least I assume it works against Dorseus' healing, but do you get the healing that it blocked if you have finite life yourself? I don't know!)

I was expecting a book with Sardonyxx given the title of the folder. ☺

Thinking about it you could try playing sardonyx with priestess instead. Sunfire amulet and some holy spells could even out lost life. The invert to this book :D

The problem is sardonyx is 10000 times worse than Alfiya, lazy Enforceress
