I have been playing games this one a lot. I use the griffins to jam when Helynna pops feat if they need to be used that way. If not they are still great missiles and shield guards. I want to try with two phoenix by dropping two griffins as somehow I can make a Arcanist a free card that way. But I just don't have a second one painted up. I also do a build where I drop a Phoenix and the two griffins for a Hyperion. Only thing this list needs is a speed buff somehow. Though I have only been dropping this into cygnar. Specifically caine3 so I need a lot more practice before I can say this list is great. It is fun though. War Room Army

I recently brought double Forges of War to the Battle at Lund tournament to test my lists. Vyros2 performed pretty well (I lost to Ossrum because I forgot the +3 SPD on his feat and to Nemo3 because my opponent kept rolling high on damage but I also managed to beat Haley3, Ossrum, and a couple of Khador lists piloted by former WTC participants).

Hydras under Bird's Eye make opponents very paranoid. They get focus when using Shield Guard, and they do significant damage under Synergy (once, I even managed to damage an enemy 'jack, throw it outside of CTRL and still buy enough attacks to cripple a second heavy). Manticores would have been better into one of the Khador lists but otherwise I was happy with the Hydras.
