Double masters!!! Ressers in May World Series.


Recommended Posts

The World Series is finally trialing double masters, as you can see here:

So while we'll dive into discussion on the pools next week (after the April one finishes off), I thought we could at least start brainstorming about double master combos.

Our beloved Molly & Kirai has been nerfed into oblivion... But Kirai & Molly might be a viable combo, although significantly weaker.

Reva & McMourning is as potent a combo as ever, having received no changes. Indeed, McMourning is probably one of our best second masters at this point, being the absolute melee mayhem monster that he is.

EDIT: Actually, the focus nerf is a nerf to Reva & McMourning... But that's alright, still probably fine.

What other combinations are people thinking of running?

I just tried Seamus with Molly as a second master, and it felt pretty glorious. Round 1.

Here's the list I took:

  • Seamus & Copycat
    • Whisper upgrade
  • Molly & Crooligan
  • 2 doxies
  • 2 belles

I don't think it is the final version of the list, but this felt pretty potent. Molly did her usual thing of supercharging the crew, so there were a lot of repositioning shenanigans to be had.

That centre platform means pushes mean a LOT. You can throw people off the building into hazardous fire, effectively doing 4 extra damage... It's BRUTAL. So Redchapel definitely feels pretty nuts here.

Not to mention the entire centre platform is blocking, so you can secret passage however you want...

Nice list! 🙂 
My favorite masters! 

... just wondering how well does a Crooligan work in that list - since you only have molly for by your side?
and if it would be worth adding the necrotic machine as additional model for a crooligan to teleport to? (think its allowed hiring?)

I think it is really pool dependent. On leylines it seemed fine since the crooligan only need to do a a few things. Think I'd make a very different list for Break The Line.

Necrotic Machine is an option I suppose, or you could just drop both the Belles and swap in Archie. Or Dead Rider to give Molly more mobility! Depends on what you're needing to accomplish, I think.

Once ran a Yan Lo crew with McMourning in it. Used Chiaki to give McMourning both Izamu's and Manos's Reliquaries. It took two turns to get there, but the Doc became unstoppable and on top of that Yan Lo hits full power at the same time so he joins him in the fray. The rest of my crew just spent the rest of the game scoring VP while the Masters just wrecked house.

This is amazing!

To some degree I wonder if just Izamu's Reliquary would be enough. That way you can start wrecking on turn 1 with McMourning. Then when they finally have him under control, Yan Lo Arrives.

Manos' reliquary doesn't seem that necessary (since McMourning often effectively has regen 6). I think I'd probably prioritise Chiaki's or Yin's Reliquary if possible (so he has manipulative or terrifying). Chiaki's reliquary can also remove distracted which can be pretty clutch.

But there's all sorts of ways to run it I imagine!

Me:

  • Seamus & copycat & whisper
  • Molly
  • Crooligan

Not sure I understand his plan fully. I think I do, but my plan seems strong into it if I do xD

Will find out tomorrow when we play!
