    C’mon baby light my fire

    The lampad shenanigans seem quite fun! I’ll have too look into them more Forsure. Would a dead doxy be worth it in a Reva crew as well? Seems like the push/pull thing would be good for her. @Adran I think the fees were more nasty because he made me discard cards repetitively. Granted I’m way out of practice so In hindsight I could have just avoided it if I remembered how it worked. Lol. I also had 0 condition removal. in regard to the poison synergy I was thinking about how you can poison mcmourning send him down the field with pushes and fly him in like a cruise missile from an unexpected angle. I know that there are a fair share of keyword synergies I need to explore on another note did manage to get a good game in last night with Seamus. Tried out “ do you know who I am” with the -2 wp upgrade and decaying aura. Went master hunting. Seamus scored me 6 points off of undercover entourage and eliminate the leadership. It was a super bloody game. Tried Asura out and a kentauri, he felt really strong and great for dragging Seamus around. his large base making him easy to hide behind. Not sure what upgrade to take on Asura.

    Wow thanks a lot for the replies! I would like to know a little bit more about what you were speaking about @Sagrit sounds like kentaori and rotten is where it is at. Out of curiosity how were you able to dish out 17 burning??? I remember playing with kaeris a little bit back when she first got promoted and I loved the mechanic. as far as specific masters i still love Doug and Reva seems to be quite powerful upon closer inspection. I own her and painted her up a while back. I’ve also read speaking of beasts that the Scorpius performs quite well with mcmourning. how do I go about getting more bang out of these guys? also I’ve read about bone piles a little bit. Seem like they would be impressive scheme runners, as are crooligans and punks. Is there a proper way to choose the right one (like scheme runner flow chart lol)? thanks!
  3. Hello all😁! I am a returning Rezzer player and I need a pick me up. i started playing Rezzers in 1st edition and have been playing them primarily since with a fair smattering of breaks here and there. I fell off right around book 4. I did pick up most of the models however. Book 5 on the other hand has (although owned) remained mostly unopened. Upon recently getting stuck in again (played 2 games yesterday) i am realizing that I can’t seem to recall much of the synergies of the faction. i played against guild who threw fees out left and right. And then a neverborn list completely themed around collodi’s synergy’s. so I guess really... TLDR: what cool gimmicks do rezzers have these days outside of poison? What cool combos do we have? Not looking for “gotcha” moments on my opponents. I just want to know what to throw on the table outside of book 1 staples. sorry for the long winded post I just want to love my dead again before I Think about starting another hobby project. Thanks and Happy Haunting!

    What does candy bring to a dreamer crew? I'll have to dig my books out. I've just spent the day finishing up building the queens return box and some wisps. colodi got here today too! Super excite!

    How do you beat Pandora?

    This! I main rezzers and my buddy does neverborn. he runs Dora with lust and let me just say that is annoying. I gave her negative to ca/wp duels with gnawing fear and then hit her with hanged. Super funny to watch Dora get paralyzed. Sadly iggy was still a thing and set everyone on fire. We were playing extraction. But Seamus was able to run leave your mark all on his own and eventually kill lust and Dora. I play against pandora the same way I play against shooty guild and that is hand management. Start taking note of the duels you can afford to lose and really think about the ones you can't. "Maybe my henchmen can take the damage from Dora so I'll save the 13 for casting gnawing fears".I have also used the red joker way more defensively against this kind of crew. Knowing pandora can push out. Just ignore her. I would also say you're opponents need to look at the pieces that make your crew work. Iggy's incite doesn't seem strong but in concert with your crew within 6inches of your dudes it can do 3 damage as a 0 action (1 from Dora 2 from your sorrows) then force them to activate for fgf damage. Sometimes you just need to walk opposing players through how things work, or will work especially in friendly games. I know I had to do this a lot with Hamelin.lol hope this helps

    I like the idea of pandora with the Knights that seem legit. Man this game is so cool! I actually look forward to investing in and playing with all these ideas. One thing though that I've been wondering about is in regard to collodi crew. How does he run schemes? Or do you just choose ones that are more his speed? in which case does he just bunrakus and beconers to pull enemy scheme runners into his bubble?

    The Big 3?

    In the case of the autumn knights with pandora is it due to the wp duels on their lures and opponents activating near scheme markers? Or are their other reasons? It does sound fun luring people into fears given form. But idk if baby kade and teddy would be better suited with careful positioning. I know it's a lot of points but I've actually used the combo to scheme run even haha

    Wow thank you so much! That is an amazing run down of the synergies. Also i picked up collodi today!

    The Queens return; looking for tips

    Hmm... when it comes down to which to do first I would recommend Barbaros. His challenge aura is a "0" if I remember correctly. This allows you to position properly. Not to mention it is a passive aura which requires no real work on your part. Where behold my glory is a trigger that requires cards to hit your opponent. That way when your opponent sees what you're up to he may not be able to alpha strike barbaros considering your cards in hand and soul stone mitigation. two turns against this pair and you learn very quickly to avoid incite and kill barbaros asap. Lol

    Will o Wisp: how many?

    Really depends on the crew but I think wisps call is incredibly good for certain strategies. Especially extraction interference and guard the stash. the look on your opponents face when they want to move to try and score only to be given the run around. Sometimes forcing your openent to sacrifice their second action to try and move back in to score isn't necessarily bad either as you have effectively controlled their activation with a 3ss model

    The Big 3?

    wow! Thanks for all the responses. as of now I'm thinking zoraida. The swamp fiend theme is so cool. Mc Tavish + doppelgänger + obey... yes please! Lol and the whole will o' the wisp lightning butt bugs seem too goofy/cool to pass up. Oh and barbaros with fears given form Collodi. I was a huge fan of the puppet master movies back in the day. Plus I think it's really cool how they can share each others conditions. Is it wrong I'm thinking about running a beconer plus an illuminated with him? Pandora. I have run both versions of her to great success (much to the dismay of my opponents). Plus I already have her built. I had read earlier that Titania and Pandora fill a similar role in area control denial. One of them being super card intensive for your opponent and the other just passively knocking out your opponents models. I guess the choice between the 2 would come down to scheme pool. Passively/accidentally giving some one frame for murder turn 2 is never fun. Haha

    Sorry for the double post but you stated zoraida got buffed? how so? I loved her in 1st ed. Even if I did just used to run her as a support for my collodi lol

    The Big 3?

    Thank you so much for the reply! I thought about focusing on 1 as you had said. I was between Lilith and Pandora personally. The whole "3" thing was really just to keep me focused. I guess this being malifaux and all I should have asked which 3 would give me a varied in game/ hobby experience. personally I love dreamer, Lilith, collodi, Pandora, Titania and zoraida. I guess there's no real wrong choice here.

    I've been on the other end of this combo quite a lot. It really does eat your hand. More so than it even appears. challenge reads in part, " when declaring a model other than this model(Barbaros) as the target of an action. this includes things that aren't even necessarily attack actions. Such as call belle on sybelle. Or even Rasputinas frozen touch.

    Hey all! Let me start off by saying thanks for being a wonderful community! I have long dredged through the forums for many ideas and answers to various questions.Now I thought it was time to actually become a part of the this awesome community:) A little bit of background about myself. I have been miniature gaming for around 20 years and have been playing malifaux off and on since 1st ed. In the past year I have shelved all other systems to play the one that I feel is the best! I get roughly 4 games in a week mainly with rezzers but I do own a bit of everything. I have never been a real tournament kind of guy due to conflicts on the weekends but I would like to change that and delve into Neverborn. so, now that I feel that I've droned on.I would like to get back to the title of my post... the big 3 I would like to focus on 3 masters that can keep me covered in the competitive environment. I know it's hard to say not given the schemes and strats but I know that there are some masters that some consider to be auto picks for certain things. Basically, if you were gonna pick 3 masters to focus on who would they be and why? I'm not so much trying to limit myself as I am just trying to focus. I tend to want to play everything and thus become a jack of all trades master of none kind of guy.lol thank you so much! Look forward to seeing what others have to say and finally contributing to the very forums I've taken so much from.
