Post Graphiel
Graphiel

We have a new blitzy powercrazy Elf!! :drool:
I think he's on par with Winter. He's faster, but no planar defense.
He can knock out entire starting armies on turn 1!

Try out our new Warlord, elvish bretheren:

Graphiel
x2 The Biting West Wind (Undead & planar! Fits the blitzy theme perfectly!)
x2 Amatria Tansiq (Best lvl elf in 4E)
x1 Ardanaalis (Best undead recursion of 4E)

x3 Cyrus Netheryn (Kill Ardanaalis, or kill himself, or just kill him with Graphiel's order)
x2 Ardanaalis
x1 Ayaaba Waverunner (Return Ardanaalis OR Biting west wind!)
x2 Bone Golem (junk, but only other undead worth running)
x3 Otin Dythanus (the new necromancer who summons an undead, he's Picella powerful!)
x1 The Biting West Wind
x2 Remorna (same turn anti-planar strike)

x3 Bellicose (Best movement card in 4E)
x3 Incinerate (Fire spell with undead boosts!)
x2 Sunder the Soul (huge DC save with undead, more blitz)
x2 Fire and Steel (mostly for fire action and react strike)
x3 Viper Whip (Nice undead boost)
x3 Flame Blade (ditto)
x2 Venom Vines (AC nerf for undead strikes)
x3 Dimensional Rift (Meta staple and pure blitz!)
x1 Icy Surge (another strike, I guess?)

x1 Fire Dance (Lots of fire spells)
x1 The Dark Horse (Atk Bump)
x1 Bruntor's Helm (3HP sucks)
x1 Dueling Saber (More strikes, equippable in front rank)
x1 Wyvern Gem (we need some multiwounding)
x2 Engraved Plate (level 5, nice AC boost)
x1 Ring of Vorn (need more movement!)

Tested it around 12 games, I can never draw up the first turn movement, but still end up having enough strikes to decimate ranks.

Very powerful blitz. An observation, though, is that you're not doing anything that the other Wizards don't do even better.

:yes:

Not Arrow's fault really; Graphiel is just not that interesting; Morghen can do all that and be safer to boot.

I like him a lot though; I was playing him as a bit more of a Necromancer and building him in the second rank - only thing he can do that Morghen can't is equip Backbiter :D

His DCs can get obnoxious; you simply have to run Ball Lightning. Just a +1 or 2 to that DC makes it near an auto wound on most critters. And Icy Surge is incredibly hot for similar reasons.

Wow, melon, the Forest Seed is amazing in this deck! It looks a little bland at first, but those bonuses and extra strikes really pile on!

I've made some changes to the original deck.. took out all the defensive cards to fully concentrate on blitz...

Graphiel
x2 The Biting West Wind (Undead & planar! Fits the blitzy theme perfectly!)
x2 Amatria Tansiq (Best lvl elf in 4E)
x1 Ardanaalis (Best undead recursion of 4E)

x3 Cyrus Netheryn (Kill Ardanaalis, or kill himself, or just kill him with Graphiel's order)
x2 Ardanaalis
x1 Ayaaba Waverunner (Return Ardanaalis OR Biting west wind!)
x2 Ciane
x2 Otin Dythanus (the new necromancer who summons an undead, he's Picella powerful!)
x1 The Biting West Wind
x2 Remorna (same turn anti-planar strike)

x3 Bellicose (Best movement card in 4E)
x3 Incinerate (Fire spell with undead boosts!)
x2 Fire and Steel (mostly for fire action and react strike)
x3 Viper Whip (Nice undead boost)
x3 Flame Blade (ditto)
x1 Venom Vines (AC nerf for undead strikes)
x3 Dimensional Rift (Meta staple and pure blitz!)
x3 Icy Surge (another strike, I guess?)

x2 Commanding Presence (Works better than Fire Dance with all the Skeletons)
x1 The Dark Horse (Atk Bump)
x1 Bruntor's Helm (3HP sucks)
x2 The Forest's Seed (More strikes, equippable in front rank)
x1 Wyvern Gem (we need some multiwounding)
x1 Great Wyrm Potion (More movement, and nice with a ranged spell from the front rank)
x2 Ring of Vorn (need more movement!)

if you're running great wyrm potion, why not also blink??

you are in the front ready to attack, they strike at you, you blink, wyrm potion to rank 2, then dc yourself into rank 1 unscathed ;)
