Sorry, no top 10 defenses from the last time. I took some time off from the game during the last rotation so it will be several weeks. Sorry again.


I have to decide if i want Hawkmoon in the wing or if id rather bring her closer and put Sudri in the wing instead.



I think I‘ll go with this.

May last-minute-emblem Bauchan to 20


What about this defense? any position change? suggestions?cvcvv


I chose Azar as flank instead of wing, hoping the combined mana cut of Azar and Bauchan (+Ei-Dunn in my case) stalls the enemy

I’ll try to go like this


Without Bauchan to place at tank im thinking Sudri will be punishing with the 2 mana controllers at flank. I hope that makes bumping Hawkmoon to wing a viable strategy. And im not usually a fan of mono defenses, they have never worked well for me, i dont see a better fit than fireball guy on the right.


No Kvasir? His minions can be really useful.
Or a Belith to heal and dispel


I don’t have bauch :cry:

But I think this should still do nicely, benching jahangir, Oberon, Bjorn, gil ra - actually have lots of decent options (none emblemed though)


My defense last time: ⚔ [24 May, 2020] - 57th Raid Tournament - 3*, Rush Attack, No Blue/ Ice - #131 by WaVe

(Melia/hawkmoon/cochin/jahangir/bjorn). It did ok at A/B/B. But this time I have more and better options. I think I’ll go with:


Hawkmoon and bauchan are kind of a given, by far the best in this format. Pixie could be replaced with melia, kvasir or perhaps bane? But manacontrol is key in rush.
Jahangir could be replaced with sudri, but I expect opponents to take red, which will weaken his special. Maybe azar for more manacontrol?
Bjorn: renfeld (costume) or tyrum? Once renfeld goes off, in rush, he basically has a manadrain until he either dies or wins


1st draft…


Pfff, I feel like I have really good options, but not sure what exactly to do. I was thinking these 3 to be the core of defence team:

And then, to choose 2 more from this pool of heros (have in mind that I could bring Ei-Dunn and c.Renfeld up to 9-10 tallents, Pixie to +7):

Help? :pray:

Frist thoughts is this.


@jinbatsu I’m not a fan on mono-defense. I think including yellow and purple forces the opponents more in considering their attackteam, with mono-red defense all red/yellow/purple is neutral.

@Slobix see my earlier post for my thinking, as I guess we mostly have the same heroes to choose from

@Dudeious.Maximus: a green tank in no-blue? I would seriously reconsider that. Also: Bane is already fast, so doesn’t profit that much from rush.


I will play with this team


Yup, did almost the same. Gave up on the idea of 4 reds, so Ei-Dunn is out. Figured c.Renfeld and Pixie would be super useful in attack, too.

I’ll just consider Bjorn instead of c.Renfeld, because he does hit hard. So, more dmg at the cost of less mana control?


will i regret not tanking Ei-Dunn? no matter, go team red
