10th is the obvious counter here, but let's try something else:

Blastatrons x3 - 180
Gladiatrons x4 - 320

I'm not sure this needs an explanation..

Marro Hive 160
Stingers x5 300 (460)
Marcu 20 (480)

Stinger's overwhelming firepower does the job.
Marro hive because its fun.
Marcu is simply the marro without an exoskeleton. Who also fills in for glyph grabbing and last resort.

Crap, is 28 more than 24? I always forget that one. Hopefully mtl1998 would notice me slipping the extra glads on the map when he wasn't looking...

Not only a counter to your soulborgs, you have no way to take out my massive amount of squads.
While I was tempted to go with another Aquilla squad, I'll go with:

Mohican River Tribe x5 - 350
Brave Arrow - 50 (400)
Elite Onyx Vipers 100 (500, 19 hexes)

I'm not convinced this would win every time, but I like the Mohican's odds.

Arrow Gruts x4-160
Swogsx8-200
Krug-120
Marcu-20

That should do just fine against your mohicans.
Too bad you went 7 hexes over the limit if my math is right. (4x3)+(8x2)+2+1 equals 31. 31-24 equals 7. So you lose marcu and either 3 swog or 2 squads or 1 swog and 4 gruts or 2 swog and 2 gruts. Should clarify for the next person submitting an army.
It's not like something I haven't done, @fomox .

Speaking of exoskeleton...
Mezzos x6-390
NotNW-110

Total: 500

I almost went with airborne, but felt like doing something different. Ninjas try to take out the hive while mezzos take out the stingers.

Ninja's trying to sneak to the hive would probably only get them killed by stingers waste of an OM for you. You would just make getting into position easier. Mezzos are stinger than the stingers, but I will outlast you. I think on paper it may look good, but in this battle the Marro Hive is actually quite useful. I'd choose my army in this battle.

Anyway,

Nilf 185 /185
Braxas 210 / 395 Exoskeletons? What are those? We haven't heard of them.
DW7K 100 / 495 Because I can. No amount of ninja dodge beats self-destruct.
495/5 hexes

It is good.

Protectors of Ullar x3 330
Atlaga 90
Raelin 80
500/11 spaces

Should be self explanatory.

72 tournaments. 173 - 142 - 1 overall record. 6 tournament wins.

My goal, play every official 'scape unit in a tournament at least once. 149 down, 55 to go!

Braxas 210
Tagawa Samurai 120 360
Deathwalker 7000 460
Isamu 470
Marcu 490

Deathwalker 7000 can blow up a minion or take out/wound a hero. You can also use him first to prevent a bolt of wither wood. He will go first because if he can destroy 2 minions, then their numbers will not be great enough to overwhelm Braxas.
Braxas will destroy 6 minions. (Kills,two by average on first rush, then there is only one minion to attack her. Then she kills two more, which then brings her up to heavy wounds, 5-6 taking out another 2 and then dies. She could get lucky and kill 3 on her first turn, which would just allow her to take out all of them. If some are destroyed by DW7K
If the Minions are not destroyed by Braxas and DW7K, then Marcu and Isamu can be used to poke them.
Tagawa Samurai will punish with passive kills. Once buffed, they can wreck bacon and laser gunny.

Major Q10 420
Zettian Guards 490
Otonashi 500 / 23

The Hounds' Marro Plague gets past Counterstrike and DW7K's high defense, and their size makes them Braxas-proof. Q10 will use Machine Pistol pick off Marcu and Isamu, and multiple shots at DW7K is never a bad thing. Oh, and he's Braxas-proof too. The Zettians are another ranged option, and while their not Braxas-proof, they and the Major are soulborgs, and immune to Marro Plague. Otonashi would lead out and try to get a hit on the Wild Queen of yours.

WORST. PALADIN. EVER.

Overall Tourney Record: ....I don't even remember anymore!

Zetacron-60
Omnicrons x3-300
Repulsors x3-120
Marcu-20

The only problem this army would have is that it would die easily. 3 defense isn't very sturdy, and the bulk of this army has it. I could take out Zeta and Marcu, and sub in Raelin, but what's the fun in that?
