Current State of Mana Lords (50% starts)

Here we have a complete list of all 50% mana starts currently in the game. We have 3 classes (Titan, Mechanist, Shaman), 2 Delve troops (Maraji Queen, King Minos), and 12 other troops. There are 28 different troop types in the game we are focused on (so we’re excluding Gnome, Boss, Tower, and Doom), and we have 16 of them represented (with Shaman represented twice by the troop King Minos and the class Shaman). We’re basically only interested in troop types for types we can play (or hope to play in the future, like Elemental and Construct, which Devs have hinted at). The latest addition is for Dragons.

Some of these troops are better than others. For instance, Divine Ishbaala is very popular because of the high cost of most Divine troops. King Avelorn is very popular because there are three Elf classes. Ghost Queen was a welcome addition. I almost always use it in my Undead teams. Sir Quentin Hadley is fantastic for Knights because they have a similar high cost. Maraji Queen is very popular for Phoenecia teams.

Others are less popular, like for Urska, Orcs, and Rogues.

If Goblins get a 50% start I will literally uninstall.

Agree, 50% goblins should never happen…
