Hey all, I recently played a game against Makeda 2 with all the ferox and I have to say it was brutal. I dropped Baldur 2 in BoO theme and it was a pretty close game. Got assasinated by Cats with Spd 9 and Parry thanks to dash. (14" nonlinear threat at all times is insane) basically the entire game I killed one cat and His heavy who got too close to my guardian sneakily placed just within the shifting stones. He got megs and a sentry stone (megs was due to a mistake went to buy and extra attack instead of popping Roots on myself)
I think Baldur 2 with wolds has pretty good game as his infantry can't kill the wolds very well at all and with proper model placement you can limit the silliness of cat jumps. But is there any other caster we could drop into that Monster? I was thinking the tharn theme with Bloodweavers or The Wolves of Orboros theme with grayle. I also thinking Mohsar has game as he forces the cast to use thier jump to get over pillars. And curse of shadows can really ruin bodyblocking tactics.
Anyone with experience have any advice? I'm afraid to not take a Baldur 2 now in my pairings
Gallows Grove should really help you out. There are in all the themes. I like them with Baldur, helps to buff your stuff.
Good point and with a unit of shifting stones you can put them exactly where you need them! I was playing bones of orboros so I didn't have one as I figured Geomamcy would help me avoid situations where I would need to Arc Roots but I may consider taking one for the healing prevention
Edit: nvm gallows can't be placed by anything other than thier card ability. Curses!
I played into same makeda2 and 2 units cats this week w Mohsar and it was awful. I think you just need a ton of accurate attacks so maybe 2 units of sentry stones and 3 wyrds might help. Tho the wyrds and stones may just get eaten by cats. The druids dice guy (super awesome) had a cool Baldur 1 list that maybe would survive.
My prime morvahna list on these forums might have enough attacks (high mat/rat WoOs), take down (slaughterhousers), grievous wounds (gang bloodweavers), and rfp (I don't know that her rfp works on makeda) to chew through. You can prey and regrowth bloodtrackers for rat 8. You can clog landing zones w infantry.
I'm thinking using Bloodweavers to prove Grevious Wounds and follow up with Ravagers to Put good Pow Good Mat into them. On average a charging Ravager does enough damage to put down a Ferox. If you use a Bloodweavers to prove Grevious first that's just a dead cat. 2 Units of Weavers and 2 Units of Ravagers fits well into the tharn theme. I have a Tharn theme template I want to try but I need a Second full Ravager boat and a second unit of Bloodweavers. That's almost 100 dollars haha. It's interchangeable between casters for tweaking and optimizing I'm leaning towards Baldur 1 as my caster for No knockdown immune to blast and a feat that lets me deliver an alpha pretty well. Plus Stone Skin makes Ravagers Pow 15 which is nothing to sneeze at. Between a bunch of Boosted Pow 15's and Grevious wounds followed by Second wave beater heavies (AKA megs and a Feral) it should be able to take on a good number of lists.
