Mages / Re: The Challenges of the Priestess
« on: January 30, 2018, 06:20:15 PM »
If you are playing in a play group that allows promos, running an Alfiya deck is always good fun.

(Alfiya does two direct damage when a creature is stunned or dazed by a light source)

Even without Alfiya in the deck, Priestess that runs Akiro's Favor and stun/daze conditions attack spells + clerics can really dish out a ton of control (in the form of crowd control/damage reduction) while not sacrificing a ton of mana on cards like sacred ground (which of course should still be run to go against swarm decks) and other PURELY defensive cards.

So prioritizing creatures that have stun (Light of Dawn, mage wand with pillar of light spellbound, Alfiya if possible, etc. just make sure it is stun/daze with light damage, a lot of good cardes in the lost grimoire vol 1 for this) you don't have to sacrifice mana/time on playing defensive and you can spend more turns being "safely aggro". And Akiro's favor will allow you to have a MUCH higher stun/daze percentage. And something I like to do, is get a royal archer, or even a generic cleric, and keep him 2 zones away from you (and hopefully away from aggression) and put a nullify, a block, or something with Aegis 1 (hidden) and then throw an enchantment transfusion on him, so if your mage or any of your big creatures are about to take big damage, before the damage and effects step you can just swap the nullify or block over to where you want it in RESPONSE to something, which is huge.

This can of course can be beaten by decks like Juktari who can make quick work of your monsters, in which case you do have to rely a little on sustain and getting good rolls on heal. But don't be afraid to run a lay heads or two in your deck to quick cast a potential full restore on your big creatures.

Cheers!

League / Tournament Play / Looking for SoCal Players
« on: January 30, 2018, 02:26:23 AM »
If you are in SoCal, specifically near Orange County, Iím starting up a scene and currently have about 15 of us that are playing daily!

I have 6 of each tome core set + every expansion for you newer players and I am the owner of the venue we play at.

Where are all of you SoCal Mages at??

Events / SoCal weekly event - Casual / Competetive environment

Hello everyone!

I'm new to the forums here, and FAIRLY new to Mage Wars but I am definitely not new to the event hosting scene.

I operate/manage a gaming shop in Fullerton, CA and I was curious what kind of attention a weekly event in Southern California would get.

I am absolutely not out here for money, I don't actually make any money off of any store sales.

I was thinking about starting up a weekly Mage Wars gathering, no charge, in Fullerton. I've reached out to Arcane Wonders and they have been wonderful in helping out, we now have 5 copies of both core tomb sets, and 3 full core sets worth of cards as well as a lost grimoire vol 1 set. I also own every expansion and have all of my cards categorized by type and alphabetically.

I know there are a lot of people out there who are limited by what cards they own, so if you want to build a deck out of what I own and playtest it here, I own plenty of cards to go around.
