Thinking this:


Team for the tournament, Belith and Berden are the only emblemed heroes available. Oberon and Chochin as obvious choice and Gato for utilitiy. I have no costumes, I may put Tyrum if I get him to 3.50 I won´t be able to level my Gunnar because al blue food is going to my recently ascended Boril.


Top 10 finishers in the same rule tournament.


Thinking about this set-up. Any thoughts and opinions are welcome :slight_smile:

I was thinking about damage+mana control for this one. Chochin should be sturdy enough to be a tank (dmg + mana generation slow), Bauchan on the flank for dmg and mana cut. Grevle for survivability, Bjorn and Nordri for dmg.

I do have options to make it more passive, but sturdier - c.Gunnar +9 and c.Hawkmoon +9. I’d be happy to hear if there’s a good idea how to include them. :blush:


Some initial thoughts:

…and any combinations of the above four.

Tank+wings I think I’m pretty settled on, flanks TBD but so far leaning towards double blue to entice attackers to stack green because:

  • only one mana controller (Carver, but weak AoE)
  • green has the least amount of hitters (Berden, Mnesseus, Hisan, Isshtak, Carver) and none of them hit particularly hard
  • only one hero to counter Gill-ra’s attack debuff (Grevle)

Contrast this with red where you have multiple mana controllers (Bauchan, Ei-dunn, Azar) or blue where you have more hitters (Valen, Gato, Jarvur, Vodnik, Nordri, Chick Jr, Karil) and some of them hit particularly hard and/or give secondary effects.

So I’m trying to build my defense around encouraging a green stack instead of red or blue, since blue can output a ton of damage very quickly and red has some excellent options for slowing my defense down.


1st draft

Thinking about trying to power level this guy- his Mana drain might be a good idea in v fast. Idk tho


I wanted to try it too but costume chamber’s summons wasn’t enough to get this guy! :grinning:

It’s time to up Sudri


I’m so glad I’ve just maxed my new Shrubbear. Also it’s time to power level An-Windr. If I can’t do it on time, than Bjorn will be my tank (standing between Chochin and cRenfeld

First builds.

Bauchan was such a terror to me the last time I faced him in a very fast tournament that I’m keen to put him to use now that I have him. I’m leaning towards team 2 with Gill-ra at tank for the debuffs and cleanse, Bauchan and Cochin for their mana shenanigans and Brienne hopefully to make up for the lack of punching damage. My only concern with team 2 is it lacks any healing or defensive buffs.

My first setup.

Bauchan is a beast, with his manacut and manabuff. Once c-renfeld gets going, he keeps on stealing mana (maybe better in wing?). Grevle for overheal and attackbuff, belith and tyrum then for dispell and cleanse.

I have plenty of options though:


1st draft…


I’m going to swap Hawk & Björn…


My first draft:

I kinda regret not levelling up Bauchan. LOL.


Not sure few ideas also got Buchan now iv seen teams on here🤔






Happy forum anniversary
