Change of plans.

It’s a 5* buff booster, no holy.


Going Onyx - Frigg - Ursena - Ariel - Frigg

Dont really have proper boosters. Well, would anyone put Telurria on Flank over Frigg?
Or Tyr for a Frigg on a wing?


With yellow sitting out this round, if I saw an Alfrike tank I’d be sure to bring mana controllers. Problem: two most common ones are purple (Proteus, Hel) so no (sane) attacker would use them against Alfrike.

That leaves Alasie in blue and Hansel in green as the only options. So I want to punish both a green and blue stack. Mits combo’d with GM would be perfect, except Mits is a bit slow to fire at flank and probably won’t outrun all the fast blue snipers out there. So could use cMarj since she’s fast and at least debuffs a blue stack’s attack. But then double red flanks is a pretty big risk against a mono blue attacker, so have to balance that as well. Choices choices choices… :thinking:

Any and all input welcomed (including hero placements)


Bring it on


I hope mine does well :slight_smile:


Thinking about this :slightly_smiling_face:


Your best combination is with Lepus - C.Marjana - Alfrike - Mitsuko - Jabberwock

You can peacefully go double red flanks, having two best blue counters… trust me, nobody gonna play blue vs you :slight_smile: // and they will both use red down defense.

Lepus over Lianna since if you go double red flanks, enemy MUST bring red, its stupid to go green to do weak dmg.
So vs red, Lepus has way more survivability.

Congrats on 100% defense succes in advance :slight_smile:


Ouch, me pretty lost on this one. Couple of ideas, but not sure if any of those could be effective. :man_shrugging:t2:

If there’s any strategist with some spare time, pls have a look at my roster and feel free to throw some ideas. :slightly_smiling_face:


This is my 1st thought for defence

Don’t have a lot of choices… other notable maxed choices are
Khagan, King Arthur, Triton, Wu Kong, c.Melendor, Boldtusk & Wilbur.
Maybe replace Bera with Arthur, Wilbur or Khagan?
Happy for any further thoughts…


Since you dont have many tank options, I would go ultra agressive on them! Be first, dont wait for buffs :wink:

Hansel - Tiburtus - Clarissa - Gravemaker - Fenrir

Second best option i can think of :

Tiburtus - Khiona - Heimdall - Clarrisa - Gravemaker

  • Khiona buff , Heimy buff + Clarissa buff + Grave buff

Btw, can anyone confirm :

  • Baldur attacking buff each round counts as buff?

  • Baldur protection from mana cuts counts as buff?

I don’t think I have ever tried a no-healer defence outside of bloody battles… I always thought I lack punching power to push back the attacker. But I might try it this time. :slight_smile:

I know… for war, it wouldnt work. But vs 1 team setup, Very fast tank with Very fast flank and two fast wings can suprise many average boards and most surely bad boards… Tiburtus with so many emblems isnt ignorable as well.

I would replace King Arthur with Kiril. I find your setup too passive.

It could work beacuse of buff booster rule but weaknesses from my pov :

  • Right side is too passive : enemy can dump tiles there and not worry

  • If they manage to take Ursena down before she fires, you are left with one direct dmg dealer at average speed on wing position

  • I would play Khagan, but then it is double red flanks, so have to go with King Arthur instead Kiril. King arthur is also sort of dispeller with def down and attack down thus reducing potency of enemy buffs.
    He also works nicely with Ursena maiming them and Arthur finishing off.

  • You already have healer in Bera, so I dont feel Kiril is needed

My 4 cents :wink:

Gonna try this out

Good luck all :slight_smile:


Well, I just pulled emblems off of Kunchen to put on Mother North so I’m down a good purple tank. I do have a good purple supporting cast though, so here is what I have come up with. Yes yes, I will be facing red stacks so that brings up a question. Should I slot athena in somewhere?

Appreciate any and all advice. Good luck all!


1st draft…

Without healer… well… will try this anyway.


Very aggressive, that will cause problems for people.
