    I've recently started messing about with an Ancient Grudge team. I've had a lot of luck with it, and it's currently on a 10-win streak since I started playing it yesterday.

    The team was just thrown together and hasn't been omptimised - so I'm sure someone can take it and do something even better with it.

    The trick is to keep the wizard out of play and shielded (and healed if necessary) by the priests. A decent amount of card draw and card cycling really helps burn through the wizard's deck to build power in the ancient grudges. With a reasonable amount of luck it's very possible to have enough ancient grudges and enough cards in discard to destroy an entire team by turn 2.

    Streak ended by vampire priests. I made a silly move which got the wizard killed, and it's game over from there.

    I was just thinking about building an ancient grudge elf wizard, human priest full of inspiration, and human all out attack warrior.

    Tried it. It can be a lot of fun, but with the priest lacking heals you need to be extremely careful most rounds. Which often means teams with tonnes of greater heals can just camp the VP and laugh as you frantically try to draw your lethal combo :D

    I also tried a build called Combo All Stars, which was Inspiration priest and human AoA warr, plus Dwarf vampire with double darkforce nunchaku. The dwarf vamp had two or three Swarm of Bats. So the idea is that once human warr draws Advanced Battlefield Training and AoA, dwarf vamp who has talented healer active, uses a tonne of spears of darkness to burn through blocks, then, Aoa is transferred to the dwarf vamp who has blind rage, who finishes off with a double damage blind rage laser whip!!

    Super satisfying to pull off, but the rest of the time the build just stalls.

    My playstyle prefers incremental moves, damage, and heals. I dont have the patience for waiting to draw the combo. Meanwhile, as you said, any of the three characters is a sitting duck.

    This thread seems to have s bit more interest now. The team got up to 1650 on the last rotation. It’s worse on this rotation, for whatever reason and I’m stuck at 1500 - 1550 (ouch) People seem to have also cottoned on and started wearing cushioning armour, which is an easy counter to this build.

  9. Oh wow I never thought of using Spell Skill as well as Pathfinding, that's extremely clever! I approve!
