Off the top of my head that sounds about right.

No! This is not a board game, but Stanislao Moulinsky in one of his best disguises!

I would consider the Ranger among the "best" characters and drop the Eagle Rider instead.

That's pretty close to my list as well... However, if I were in that game one of them would have to be cut for either Shaman or Chaos Wizards (because, you know, I'm playing)

Can't really argue with the first list posted- if I was going to pick an 'A-team' that would be it.

I've never been a huge fan of the rogue. I think I would probably go with:

Eagle Rider
Ranger
Sorceress
Wizard

(And if I had access to either the Barbarian or Errant Paladin, I would probably switch out either of them with the Eagle Rider.)

My only critique of this list is that it doesn't have any extra hero card draw to help cycle through the cards to the get the ones you need for the next general you want to target; that's what the Rouge brings to the table- though arguably if that's what is needed the Adventurer from the Heroes expansion fills that role even better.

The Errant Paladin or the Barbarian would both make excellent substitutions for the Eagle Rider though.
