    Competitive McCabe

    I find nekima not too bad to deal with (except when I'm running gg spam), but yaz really controls the board and creates problems.
  2. It's only alternative facts because I was thinking about trying to use scathing review on everything. While I didn't do that, the extra cards were pretty nice to have, even if it were only a few. I hated not having a marker push though. Not a fan of that. Turn 2 with Nellie I couldn't get up there to heal the executioner.
  3. Ran a couple games in the same Scheme set against the same opponent tonight. Standard deploy, public executions, eliminate the leadership, recover evidence, search the ruins, undercover Entourage, and take one for the team. My opponent was running Shen long, emissary, yu, charm warder, crime boss, a healing monk, a peasant, and a yokai. My first list was Declared Faction: Guild Crew Name: sonnia normal build 50ss Leader: Sonnia - Cache:(3) Cherufes Parting Gift 1ss Cherufe's Imprint 1ss No More Masks 1ss Malifaux Child 2ss Francisco Ortega 8ss Wade In 1ss Lead Lined Coat 1ss Dr. Grimwell 9ss Papa Loco 7ss Guild Investigator 6ss Brutal Effigy 4ss Thalarian Queller 6ss We called it at the top of three, I had killed off the peasants, the charm warder, and sensei yu and put significant damage onto Shen and the emissary while pinning him into his deployment zone. I was pretty much set to get all my scheme points (undercover ENT on grimwell and search the ruins)and as many strat points as he poked his head out to let me get. The second game I ran Declared Faction: Guild Crew Name: scathing review Nell 50ss Leader: Nellie Cochrane - Cache:(4) Alternate Facts 2ss Delegation 1ss Misleading Headlines 1ss The Printing Press 3ss Francisco Ortega 8ss Wade In 1ss A Debt To The Guild 1ss The Judge 8ss Lead Lined Coat 1ss A Debt To The Guild 1ss Executioner 9ss Ready To Work 0ss Peacekeeper 11ss A Debt To The Guild 1ss We called it at the bottom of two as I had killed the charm warder, the emissary, and the crime boss. He had the executioner at 1 wound, but I had managed to push him back to hopefully heal him next turn. I had elim on Shen, which I'm not sure I would have gotten but with Frank and the emissary next to him it seemed like a good chance next turn. I also took search the ruins again, which I think i would have been ok for.

    Riotbreakers ++Please Move in an Orderly Fashion++

    Yeah, I am converting Wardens rather than pay their exorbitant price per model.

    Riotbreakers ++Please Move in an Orderly Fashion++

    That was my thought, but didn't want to short change myself if I was getting it wrong.
  6. So, I have been thinking about this ability. Assuming Yas were to activate within 6". Would this ability stop attacks generated from triggers? How about attacks generated by a charge (assuming the model started within 6")

    Its hard to match the deadliness of a fast, nimble Yas.

    Is McTavish still good with Nellie?

    This is what I am talking about. My style of malifaux right there.

    Competitive McCabe

    One of my favorite things the few times I used McCabe was a nimble Executioner. It really let me pick off the models I want to pick off. Field reporters really like the saber because it is no big deal for them to discard a ram for the additional damage. That makes them really scary. Shame they can't charge. This thread is making me want to play McCabe.

    How do you McMourning?

    I don't think if you run Myranda you are running her for her poison ability.

    Which holes in the Wiki would you like to see filled?

    Wow really nice work.

    Messing around with a Nellie list. Your thoughts?

    Technically I have the stones to make that switch. I wanted my opponent to have to worry about public demo, but it ended up not mattering. Did you know if your opponent is flipping high you can easily lose the game in one misaki activation?
  13. I'm usually more of a alpha strike sonnia player myself, trying to fling her forwards early. That is a rough scheme set, but I feel like search the ruins and set up are the way to go, and you just gotta get those early kills to get that advantage, because you don't have the speed to win ours through trickery.

    The year of the guild...!or not...

    Sure, all the time. My last game I ran LJ without Frank and killed a charm warder, asami and a couple of obsidian oni with her. Between the brutal effigy and her own heal when I need it, she wasn't really ever in danger. If I am facing something that I am worried about LJ dying, I will run badge of office.

    wew. I do agree that we depend more than we should on Frank. That being said, I haven't had a problem playing without frank more often than not this year. I promise you Sonnia isn't weak. You mention playing arcanists too. Are you having success with Arcanists whose names don't end with "eep"? I feel like guild has better pushes, better card draw, and better damage than arcanists. Our obey masters are better than their obey masters, our damaging masters are better than their damaging masters. Basically the only things arcanists do better than us are 1. Summon, 2. practiced production, 3. have the busted oxfordians.
