I wanted to share a fun, theme army, using Hunter’s Mark and Explosions!
Home City: Khaziel +2 Brown
Banner: Khaziel +2 armor for Gotgotha and Emperina
I’d been wanting to use Orion for a while, and found a lot of armies where he works, but are kind of dull. I like his Hunter’s Mark, and I needed a way to use it with the troops I had. When I realized Hunter’s Mark doubled the damage from exploding skulls, I decided to build around it.
Gorgotha - Brown/Yellow - explodes 7 gems
This is the main engine for the deck. Hopefully durable enough to hold down the front line, and let the explosions roll.
Emperina - Red/Brown - Give 3 attack and life, then heal and cleanse.
So every tank needs a healer. The ability to cleanse and heal can help with webspinner and true damage deck.
Orion - Yellow/Green - Hunter’s Mark, 3-17 damage, +5 magic
So he’s our ranged DPS. You never know if he will be awesome or AFK. Use him to lay down a HM on your chosen target, or sometimes he just nukes them all by himself.
Acolyte - Blue/Purple - Create 10 Brown, +1 Magic
He helps speed up the army, and one active, it makes for a pretty decent, non-infinite loop.
Focus on Brown and Yellow to power up Gorgotha. If possible, charge Emperina to have a heal on hand.
As needed, use Emperina to heal Gorgothra, boosting attack and life.
Try to figure out if you want to HM the first troop or the second on the opponents side. If their lead troop is low on health (<5), you may want to have Orion target the second in line. Keep in mind exploded gems do 1 damage, but 2 if the troop has a HM attached. If your explosion will kill the lead troop without Orion hitting them, then targeting the second troop give you the possibility of a death cascade. Gorgotha will be gaining attack over the match as Emperina heals it.
Try to keep an eye on how much brown is on the field. If it’s a bit heavy, it may be better to use the Acolyte and try for the odds of a match 4-5 and flooding the field with brown.
So a nice little theme Army.
