    how i would fix lucius

    maybe if we keep this thread going it may draw attention of the game developers? It would be nice to hear their thoughts on lucius. I remember hearing Justin on a podcast saying that not all masters were created equal. maybe lucius is meant to be at the bottom of the power curve, but he can be very frustrating to use. my early games with him almost made me put the master schemer in my minis case permanently. It was like I was trying to fight against Lucius and my opponent. he is hard work sometimes without a lot a reward. surely that is not what they intended.

    I agree. If anything he needs a tweak.Wyrd makes those tweaks on upgrades rather than the cards though so I think all his target numbers ect won't change. He reeks of a model that wasn't playtested enough to be honest. I suspect that it was determined that his devils deal ability was more powerful than it has turned out to be. its a great ability but 3 damage that can not be reduced is nasty. so after some thought my suggestion is this: change his loop holes upgrade to 2ss. Remove the aura ability it is so situational I find I rarely ever get any use out of it. put in and ability called something like "that contracts not binding" at the beginning of this models activation it may remove one condition. Maybe he can discard a card to do this. Give him a crow trigger on issue command that heals the targetmodel 2 wounds/ or removes a condition. Keeps the scheme marker stuff because as off gg 2016 it's not as good. Again just my 2 cents.

    also issue command should have a trigger on a crow that heals the target model 1-2 wounds.

    Its small but i think the ability to hire guardsmen and mimics from another faction should be on the front of his card rather than a upgrade. Red tape should be until the end of the enemy models next activation. my 2 cents

    Lucius | Everyone is Dispensible

    Neverborn masters are squishy and Pandora is no exception, but I think you should give it a go. Inflict and the fears given form upgrade could really cripple a Lucius crew. With her activation control you may be able to mitigate the retaliation.

    Lucius | Everyone is Dispensible

    That's a good tactic.leaving Lucius with Little to no cards in hand pretty much shuts him down. I wont try commanding presence unless I know I can cheat it. issue command needs a 7 of anything and usually you want a specific suit as well, not to mention what lackeys are for and hidden sniper( if you have taken that upgrade). My most lackluster activations with him have been when he has has had no cards in hand. I know you could say that with any master, but with him I think it is worse. Pandora's inflict action could wreak havoc with his crew if he has them clumped as well. Maybe try that as well next time?

    Lucius | Everyone is Dispensible

    Glad you are finding him competitive. I recently took him to a tourney and came out with 2 wins and one loss. I also found that he could get his points pretty quick, and that losing minions was a given. I would never think to use guild guard let alone 3. well done on making it work.

    Quick Collodi question

    Thank you Solkan.

    Quick Collodi question

    So would Collodi still be able to use his runaway home trigger if he used his decoy ability? Thanks in advance

    What would you take?

    the only other thing i would say is to get the retributions eye upgrade on a enforcer if you can. Ignoring armour against arcanists is very good. also being able to ignore DF triggers for a activation could be huge. considering that a lot of their masters have them not to mention the mech rider. When this upgrade came out I thought it was anti arcanist.a model to remove conditions might be nice as well.
  11. have fun guys. well done on the player count.

    Thought so. Thanks

    Lucius Neverborn Crew, ideas?

    I didn't think you could use devils deal when using a soulstone to draw extra cards as it's not Lucius spending the stone so much as his crew. Looks like a good crew though, and you are encouraging me to break him back out

    Batrep. Lucius vs McMourning. 50 ss

    Haven't given up on him, just taking a break. Sometimes stepping away gives me a fresh perspective. there is six other neverborn masters I want use. I usually leave the pictures to end of turn to keep it simple for me and to minimise interruption to the game. Sometimes I take more, sometimes less. Sometimes I forget. You will never see fantastic production from me, I just want to share the game with others with the minimal effort needed :-)
