Was looking at a team to make use of the hero race traits - like becoming a Giant, Construct, and so forth. Generally I’ll pass on those in favor of a straight +8 armor or health, or +4 attack.
But I was thinking about a Mechanist hero, with the uinque third trait “All constructs begin with half mana.” If I’m a construct, presumably this applies to my hero too. So it’s even better than the Archer’s “fast” trait, assuming I have at least 2 additional construct on my team.
So what’s a sweet team I should target to take advantage of this?
Mechanist gets a +5 magic bonus for brown weapons…
Sparkgrinder - red/yellow. Gives armor + attack, doubled if it’s a construct. Not a construct himself, though.
Goblin Rocket - red/yellow.
Carnex - red/purple. Very tanky.
Deep Borer - red/blue. Makes brown, has construct bond.
Tankbot2000 - red/brown also starts with fast! So will he begin with 100% mana, or just half?
SteamTurret - brown/yellow. has construct bond, and fire spirit. (Most troops are probably red)
Maybe Sheggra’s Heart is the key here? Bear Totem might also be good, since in uses blue and destroys silly green which you don’t need. Anvil of Might is thematic - but probably counter-productive…
Anyone have any good ideas? Have a team like this they are already running?
