Reread the cards for Raelin and Taelord. Their auras don't work only on adjacent units, they work up to several spaces out, which is an incredibly huge difference.
Stop panic-mongering and trying to scream that Lily is the death of all support units. She's not. Maybe she could use some tweaks, it's arguable, but she's hardly the ultimate unstoppable answer to all units with auras or other friendly supportive powers.

Granted, that's a powerful thing to happen, when it does happen. But is it really more powerful statistically, to put an order marker on a weaker unit and hope for a good d20 roll, instead of putting all your order markers on the more powerful unit and getting a sure-thing powerful attack every turn?

That sir is a very good point.

After some more theoryscape and thinking about her powers, I think that she isn't as powerful as she comes across.

A long time ago, I promised myself that, when the time was right, I'd nominate a certain unit to the Halls, for Historical Significance, in a World War II kind of way -- like it or not, it's historically significant for the effects it's had on the community.

The idea, however, was not to make trouble for the creator, and thus I waited until the wounds healed a good bit. Now, truth finally brought it up and discussed it on Scapetalk, and thus I feel it's become a subject that can be discussed again.

Also, the Halls have been dead for weeks.

Thus, without further ado, on grounds of historical significance, as definitely one of the top three customs with the most impact on the history of our community, I nominate truth's Elite Onyx Vipers:



This card was created as a joke back on HSHQ, presented as a real version of the final card, and quickly rose to a 47-pages thread, including some death threats at the instigators.

Personally, I think it was great. Others don't. But most of all, the significance of the event cannot be denied. I strongly suggest that, along with the card's introduction, we have someone with first-hand knowledge of the debacle write up an account for future generations. This was as big as the shelf, and we should no longer try to pretend it never happened.

By respect for your fellow posters, please refrain from gratuitous use of the terms "******", "****", "****", "*****", "***", "****", "***", "******", "******" and "GenCon exclusive".

Well, I just missed out on this little prank, joining HQ not too long afterwards. It would definately need a write-up about the incident.

I will consider it for a vote.

Kumiko is not impressed with your sculpt, either.

I agree that the EOV hoax card should move on to a Nomination thread for discussion. Honoring our Roots - this is, after all, one of the most nototious customs ever...

I think it's Halls worthy, strictly for the nostalgia.

I remember, I guess the right time was after reaper left. It has my vote

Re: HALLS OF VALHALLA (Best Of Custom Units) - Nominate Here

Id like to nominate tubafication and his submission in my Knight contest.
His custom knight is called Sir Caper
http://i630.photobucket.com/albums/u...perDSLR2-2.jpg

Please consider it, he was really good at making it.

All heroscapers meet their end if they lose a game 10 times in a row. It's even worse if the opponent(s) use(s) really weak characters.
