Ok link bait title out of the way obviously Gun Mages have their uses. Let’s roll through the units from worst to best and talk about why these guys op are on the decline as a feature in the all comers list. Obviously no unit is bad if you have a good plan and matchup so we deal only with all comers lists.
Ok, So the Welsh Masters 2016 is going to be 3 list, and we know SR2015 is being kept till Lock and Load, which means we know scenerios being played, we know ADR lists. So I can start planning lists now.
ADR for Cygnar
We got an increible strong ADR in Season 3 of Haley 1, Caine 2, Stryker 2 and Nemo 3. 3 out of 4 of these casters are on the high end of our caster options Haley 1 with either Caine 2 or Stryker 2 would be great in 2 list format, and either in 3 list it be strong but I feel 3 lists makes it less useful. So I decided against it, I sure others will go with it and do well with it.
Nick Pound (pVayl) vs James Sykes (Goreshade 3)
The game was played at Travelling Man on 22/10/2015. Below, you’ll find the video of the game and a turn by turn breakdown of each player’s thoughts on the game. Enjoy!
Nick: So I know James has been a little back and forth on Shade3 a lot recently and I’ve had little experience with him other than looking at Blackbanes>feat>Spell Assassination lists a little, which it turns out is not the only way to play him. I was speaking to james about the Billy Cruikshanks patented “McThrall Cannon” and while I don’t remember the exact distances needed I do remember the maths of it killing an Angelius once Stationary, and Typhons stats are too similar for me to risk that. Its also a new Vayl list I’m trying, never played it before but was hopeful for its damage output and infantry shredding potential.
