Post The Elves of 4e: Morghen The Unliving
Image

I have played Morghen maybe once; something about him being "the best" for so long turned me off from him. Judging by recent tournaments, everyone is sort of burnt out on him. But he's still the King of 4e by tournament wins. He most definitely deserves his own guide.


Description
Flavorful description of this Warlord. Include links to high placing tournament decklists.

Common Deck Styles
1. Blitz
2. Front Rank Uber
3. Wizard Cav

Card Pool
[Cards marked with a "*" are staple uncommon or common cards, found in almost any style of Morghen deck]
Common Starts




Characters





Actions





Items





Tournament Deck Lists
Italian Winter Campaign 2009 Winner, piloted by Kaipan. Pure blitz, light recursion.
Medford Winter Campaign 2009 Winner, piloted by Dutchess. Even less recursion, blitz with lots of protection for Morghen.
Greece Summer Campaign 2009 Winner, piloted by Morgendaman. Recursion/Wizard Cavalry.
GenCon 2009 Winner, piloted by ninjakiller. Spell/weenie blitz with recursion.
KoHIT 2009 Winner, piloted by Granjero. Spell Blitz, light recursion.
OKC Winter Campaign 2011 2nd place, piloted by Foxfire. More recent deck, though still similar to the previous Spell blitz/recursion decks, showing his core remains unchanged from 2009.
Chicago Winter Campaign 2011 Winner, piloted by ninjakiller. Yes, same guy as the 2009 Gencon winner. Yes, exact same deck. :hypnotized:
New York Winter Campaign 2011 Winner, piloted by aaron_the_fox. Spell blitz, light recursion. Tournament report is in same thread.

Updated with tournament decklists and some potential styles. Avoiding labeling a "recursion" style, since all Morghen decks are going to run at least some recursion (Venom Vines). It's just a matter of how heavy the focus is on it. Agree/disagree?

Also: Man, there was a lot of [Censor: dog] on the Temple back in 2009. Finding some of those decklists was like wading through a warzone of petulance. :lol:

Post Re: The Elves of 4e: Morghen The Unliving
Ardanalis is a staple in every Morghen deck i've ever seen as well as
kinnel , flame arrow's or mm from him against those pesky 2hp starter's is golden..
skyrek as well helping to bring back ardanalis is the key to winning most game's massive strike gen is great :thumbsup:
green hag is an auto include
remorna get's all your spell's back and has built in ranged strike
cyrus make's it so you get off massive strike gen and if you happen to have a spell you can't play that turn you scribe it to him.
As far as action's are concerned there pretty self explanatory depending on the build of your deck,, as all of them play venom vines and disintegrate and of course there's the ever so amazing lightning bolt
ring of vorn
shroud of lost souls work's wonders against those pesky nothrog's


more to come later I hope this is what you were looking for bach :thumbsup:

COMMON START'S FOR MO
one that work's the best in my oppinoin would be

amatria ardanalis amatria
skyyrek kinnel unless your playing against those stupud ryan mornington's then I'd start x2ardanalis

Some people like to start with the x3Bone Golem then x2skyyrek for some reason yeah it give's you technically 2hp starter's but not worth it.. Elve's are all about the blitz and that's just not blitzy. Also I think that Soulless Scavenger shouldn't be in the deck as I see many people play that as well yeah it does have it's plus's to him but he's much more valible in say Kilkameth. Ciane has been my bread and butter in a lot of different match up's only down side to him is after his react he's RFG.. But then again he'd be to stupid with venom vines so I can see why that is. 8)

I think Soulless Scavenger is good in just about any Elf deck. Perhaps it is not as useful in Morghen, who is a necro and has a lot of recursion. However, its a character you usually have a chance to play and can be a pivotal character in rank stabilization/blitz strategy.

I wasn't saying that soulless is a bad card in anyway, or not usefull.. Ok lemme refraise "there are just better option's in MO as far as undead" like roatal and ardanalis the whole point of the deck is to have charecters in your discard to recure, you add In soulless and the synergy of the deck just fall's apart, as all of the undead in the deck strike when they come back into play, so putting it plainly he's just not for the deck

Post Re: The Elves of 4e: Morghen The Unliving
Been a while but.. I think I've covered the character's,starting formation's and most of the action's now on to the item's....

First thing's first the Item's:

ivory ring amazing card help's boost to hit the higher ac
ring of vorn self explanitory just a great card
camel well you for one can ready ivory ring for some extra offense
Dythanus' Essence ummm if you don't play this card your not playing morghen
Shroud of Lost Souls just amazing 2 wound's out of MO and character rfg.... :shrug:

All of which are staples. And that's really all I can think of there's a lot of great Morghen deck's out there not one is better then the other It all boil's down to skill and style of deck that make them great hence all of the event's in which morghen has won in the past... It's not so much that morghen is the bext warlord out right now (maybe the most versitle) but not the best....I think menherti is rediculous as well as brom tho he's kinda slow like dresek.... But awesome never the less....Hope this helped ninja out

How is Jevae in Morghen? He's level 3, a wizard, and generates "strikes" the turn he comes in, and has the very useful Necromancer keyword.

He's decent if your playing against anything but calvery or mass healing.. You'll find he's kinda a dead card in those matchup's

I play morghen and jevae didnt really work for me , Jevae is very useful in Lady of Pain though , match him up with her order and a typheria and you have some dead lowbies.

Jevae is outclassed in this environment. She's only strong for the first action, and once she's in play, her value diminishes because she is a weak character with no other ability. She was much better in CE because of Foul Blight.

If you are looking for a Necromancer to compliment Morghen, use Cyrus Netheryn.
