Okay well before we get into the specifics, it's a good first to think... "How will this file win the game?"

Fire wins by carnage and destruction, light wins by survival and outlasting, wind and water win by manipulation and playing for SP or playing to defeat the opponent's strategy, and darkness wins by timing and tricks. Lawtia's greatest strength is the ability to have huge momentum swings by well timed assaults.

So like if you look at lawtia, you will see lots of RANGE=1 units and very few archers. The strength of lawtia lies in cards like Assassin soul, Death's Embrace, Consuming Grudge, Bitter Destiny, etc. In the starter, the first thing to work on is the timing of your assassin soul (should be in the 3rd slot), and timing your shades.

Lawtia basically has a really hard time dealing with walls and combos that get set up on the field, so the best way to attack your opponent's strategy is to play your "Shades" on key turns to prevent the combo from even being set up in the first place.

Regarding your starter file in particular, a good way to begin is by going shade -> reverant -> shade -> moonlight warrior. The shades will sometimes drain SP which prevents your opponent from playing any cards, and then you will likely trigger two 1LP damage based soul skills. Those early souls are GOOD! Don't think losing LP is a bad thing. If losing LP activates powers that crush your opponents units, they might never recover. Then you can wait till another unit is about to die, and a turn ahead of time play some random lvl 1 unit to use as assassin fodder. Using assassin on the right unit can basically destroy your enemy by defeating his strategy.

Then towards the end of the game you want to get Dalos set up and hope he can carry you to victory.

Do Gon's Open and get Priestess of Madness in their. Even in a non-undead file, that pair can soak up a LOT of hits.

I would definately put assasin back into the ss, and if you are going to run two soulbinds you may aswell run invisible druid ss too.
also start doing all events and saving up point cards for a sumer.

I went through folrat with lawita starter for a good bit, that was back when modified gowen starters were the most common things in folrat, I was fortunate enough to get an alphonce in a treasure battle in crest that really helped also the 30atk and 30 def ss buff worked great for me then to, but folrat has changed immensely since then, I had slowly been investing in trying to get an undead file as it was the easiest transition possible. Patience is required for sure.

Patience is virtue in this game, especially if you are a free player.

You can also think about splashing gowen in the file. It can be useful to add
EX merc girl (she's not ideal for a rush like this, but when fighting bigs unnecessarily playing salamander indicates you're using assassin SS, with EX merc girl you'll have more chance that they don't try to avoid it. She can also be useful if you're running low on units in the end game. She's not required though),
some salamanders (for their open and as assassin SS fodder (although it's not necessary, you can use 2 assassin SS, I played a modded lawtia starter that way before the prebuilds (on my lawtia alt), and it works at times))
dragon breath (usually works better than flesh recycle),
miracle fruit (for dodging return or to increase the damage dalos can do).

However it's better to spend some time saving up mirage master gran and buying a prebuild. Also can someone please move this thread to Lapierre Sensei's Classroom?

I don't understand why newbies in particular always get so grumpy when a person (including me a fair amount of the time) points out that a particular thread has already been made 203530465077 times. I don't think it's a sign of grumpiness, it's a sign of efficiency and organization.

I have also moved this thread to the appropriate forum. Welcome to Alteil, please follow the rules and enjoy your time here.
