So i was reading http://www.critshappen.net/2013/09/05/mage-wars-druid-vs-nec... and i saw altar of skulls.

Well, my warlock feels inadequate now. My whole fun is dropping deathlock/pestilence combo (especially in 4 player). This gets the job done with less mana, granted it requires the tokens tokens (the dark clerics are only 5 mana to drop, so that shouldn't be too hard).

feel free to discuss



Now i need to buy 2 sets, so i can have a zombie zurg necro and a altar necro surprise

Why do they need to be in different spellbooks? Watching your opponent's creatures wither and die while your undead army keeps going strong seems like it would work pretty well if you can keep your opponent from killing the Alter of Skulls. I mean, it would slow down your push to play Alter of Skulls and a dark cleric, but that would only be 3 spellbook points.

Well, this wont work well against creatureless opponents. I prefer the flexibility of Deathlock & Pestilence to decide when to cast them. I see Altar of Skulls rather being played in addition to Idol of Pestilence in order to increase the total amount of direct damage.

My creatureless Forcemaster or my Earth Wizard (with Nonliving elementals and golems) will laugh at it.

Only placed in news since it is a spoiler and that's where I saw the others.

Well its ability needs 8 skull tokens. Considering that you need to kill a creature to get one and/or using clerics (Acolytes) it takes about 5-6 rounds to be "active", while Idol and Deathlock work from the moment they're being cast. I think that's the better deal...
