If it stays the same…I can see MT, .Alfrike doing some stuff…would be interesting…


Edit: switched Jabberwock and Killhare around.


Hahaha, that is called the abundance of choices! :joy:

On the other side of the spectrum, I’m looking for advices. Here’s the first idea, and below are available options. I’d love to try Sumle, but he can’t have emblems more than +6 (instead of GM). Position Heimdall/GM? Should I put Rigard for more healing, less power? All ideas are welcome, I keep the right for a final decision! :joy:

Ugh none of my purples are suitable as tank except Ursena, who ironically severely underperforms in a no holy tournament.

So, gonna just run this Telly defense:

Two blues to (slightly) discourage stacking red and entice green, except GM is there to burn you to the ground if the board goes sour. If you have multiple Kingstons well then you clearly have a bigger wallet and you deserve to win I guess.

Available options:

These were top 10 finishers in the last tournament with the same rules.


i would tank with ursena instead of telly.

Why? 260% AoE with a useless secondary effect this tourney isn’t all that scary especially when healers are v fast too. Even Jabberwock would tank better

Still think ursl is better tank in rush than telly as Mana Slow down is not such significant in practice when all heroes are set on very fast…


Wish purple 4* troops will stop avoiding me!! Tempted to run mono but thought I’ll give Noor a chance to fling some birds around!

Not sure whether to swap Sesh and Rigs or keep them as is :thinking:

eh, I always struggle with 5* tourneys…

2 Purples to take advantage of the lack of yellows. Seshat in one wing because she has those nasty replicating minions, Sartana in the other wing to take advantage of Fighter talent (though maybe I should switch to normal Sarty for the DoT, pressure the opponent to bring a cleanser alongside their dispeller/s…)

Green/Blue/Red center, because Aegir is still my best tank. Red and Green flanks to make color-stacking less useful.

  • Azlar > Elena as Azlar’s burn doesn’t conflict with Aegir’s defense boost (unlike Elena’s riposte). though I do like Elena’s Fighter talent and higher emblems…

  • Greg’s crit boost is useful, and combines well with Aegir’s heal-from-slash-attack.

Other choices:

  • Margaret +5 (Greg helps the entire team more though)
  • Aeron +2 (tempting, but fewer emblems than Sesh and Sarty, plus I’d have to put him in flank to maximize him…)
  • Elena +7, Marjana +7 (I think Azlar’s the best choice though)
  • Lepus +6, Isarnia +5 (but Aegir’s my tankiest Blue…)

I am not sure about this at all:

I thought about replacing Ursena with Guardian Kong but Ursena will last longer in this RT. Sad Sif and Viv cannot be used though.

First draft:

Would change the order to:

Heimdall, MT, Ursena, Miki, Qoh

Yeah true, always forget Heimdall is also reviver, so he can be used to great effect at wing. Thanks.

Would still go for a purple tank. Aegir is just a meatshield and easy countered by Kunchen and Isarnia or dispel effects. Aeron has dispel protection.

My suggestion would be:

Seshat, Margaret, Aeron, Elena, Isarnia(very fast tournement = high damage = high dodge chance)

Do u guys think this is a good defense?

Should i put Ursena in the mix?

Ursena for tellu would be my goto here cause tellu’s slow is not very efective here.

I would put Alfrike in center, at very fast she’s almost a win button as a tank.
