This is kind of misleading. Morsbane has a 1/4 chance to either Negate or Autokill which means:

2 Attempts=44% chance to Negate or Autokill
3 Attempts=58% Chance to Negate or Autokill

With 6 Life and 6 range, getting 2 or 3 attempts should not be super tough in most situations.

Morsbane's alright in my book.

Not "super tough" until you try it in a tournament setting, that is. <smile>

You do realize that Morsbane has been a Center Piece in 3 Different Tournament Winning armies and almost single handedly won a Day 2 Gencon Main Event Game this year after Negating both Q9 and a Hydra.

Morsbane actually has quite a solid Tournament record when people decide include him.

Re: The Book of Morsbane

If Sonya had two wounds onher due to Eternal Heartbreak, and you negated her, she would keep the wounds, correct?

Re: The Book of Morsbane

I don't especially care for anyone in wave 4 besides the soulborgs and elves, but morsbane looks interesting in an Elf wizard army and I'll have to try him out. Does he usually preform well in this sort of army?

Re: The Book of Morsbane

It all depends on the D20. I've seen him destroy a Frost Giant in one game, and put negation tokens on Krug, Shurrak and a Frost Giant in another. The more uniques or uncommons that your opponent has, the better for you.

Re: The Book of Morsbane

Morsbane's niche is probably best as a 100 point wildcard to threaten a potential Unique Hero/Squad threat (for example, in a Goblin or 4th Mass Army he can neutralize a Q9 type that can give those 2 squads fits). He works in an Elf Army but the problemis that most of the other Elves suck.
