Since discovering Skadi and the beauty of playing rainbow I am keen on seeing how far I could take the experience. Why rainbow? For the most part it takes away the concept of a bad board, as there are no “bad tiles”. Now a bad board doesn’t go away entirely - a board with very limited views and/or moves that only match up 3 or 4 tiles at a time would still be considered as bad, as you can’t fill up your mana faster than the opposing heroes. But usually there is enough to work with to be successful (provided you have a good synergy of heroes), more so than when you are more dependent on specific colors. Besides which - it is a totally new way of playing with new tactics, which keeps the game fresh and challenging and fun
Currently I can raid very successfully using a rainbow team including Skadi but it is against Tel similar summoning tanks. The first goal is to get 6 war teams that are either rainbow or 2-1-1-1 that can be highly competitive against Tel-heavy alliances, with the final goal to be able to have 6 teams that can take on non summoning tank teams.
To this end I would like to ask if anyone out there is currently having a high level of success with raids and wars playing rainbow or 2-1-1-1 against teams of TP 4600+(ish), and how they create those teams and the strategies they employ. What I see as ideal is to have one hero with a game changing special (Skadi, Grimble, Snow White are examples I can think of) matched up with 2 healers, a mana controller, and a defense down hero. Hopefully 1 of the above is also able to block or cleanse. Which gets pretty hard (barring a bottomless roster) when trying to create x6. So maybe swap out the game changing special and one of the others with 2 sniping heroes so that 1 enemy hero can be taken out at a time.
So… keen to hear what others are currently doing!
