Hello. i have a dubbel caster game in the near future and having problems to choose with 2 caster. I think feats that affects the enemy and not the battlegroup is to prefer and the same with the spells. Denny 1 is always a good caster, and im looking in to Scaverous 1 and Skarre 2. I dont own Denny3, Morty2, Skarre3 and Sturgis1
I'm going to assume that you also don't have Sturgis 2, as that is the Cryx caster.
It really depends on what you want to accomplish. I think something like Skarre 1 or Denny 1 enabling Terminus and his army sounds hilarious. If you really want to stack up the debuffs, you could go with Denny 1 and Asphyxious 1, a double feat turn will most likely annihilate most infantry armies and it should have no trouble at all with cracking armour. I agree that battle group centric casters may not be the best, though a case could be made for having a solid combined arms list with someone like Asphyxious 3 taking a full heavy battle group and the other caster taking some Stalkers and arc nodes. Much of this can also depend on the point level you will be playing at as some casters will go up or down in effectiveness if there are too many opposing models.
So feats affect the enemy but not your own people? I am not sure I understood that as someone like Scaverous or Skarre is all about affecting your own people as Scaverous makes all your spells cheaper and auto boosts magic attacks of all friendly faction stuff. Warwitch sirens, Wrathe, cephylix mind slavers, and deneghra herself will all benefit, if they cannot be affected, no point in taking him. Though TK is still very powerful spell.
Skarre 2 gives the big defensive swing and MAT swing against your opponent so if you cant affect yourself, you can still affect the opposing guy I suppose.
Did I misunderstand what you were trying to say?
Denny 1 is a great first partner. She will make anyone better. Matched with Scaverous, she wont have to boost most of her spells on feat turn, combo of their magical offensive potential will be crippling for most (non-menoth) opponents (or anyone else with anti-magic abilities).
Denny1 + Skarre will pretty much give you a time walk turn where your opponent will struggle to do anything for 1 round under the feats. You could probably even stagger the feats to do Skarre's then Denny's to really just get the alpha, limited reprisal, and finish off what is left. That being said, I think that scaverous will pull his own weight more than Skarre 2 will, as far as contribution. But again, that depends on what you want to do and what your list makeup is going to be. These are very match up dependent as well.
Do you have any idea what you expect to see? What point totals are you playing at?
I played in a cool 2 caster tournament a while back with Scaverous and gaspy1 (in Black Industries) and absolutely loved the combo. I Bottom of 1'd a Skarre1 out of a Skarre1/Terminus combo (killed Termy later on). Top of 2'd kaelyssa out of a Kaelyssa/Assyria combo (Assyria learned after that and vortex let her survive the game). There was a third game, I killed more casters but I can't remember my round 2.
