Is 3rd Emperor + Hellspawn + Shear Winds + Time Stop viable in an Urgrant file? With it's high SP demand...
I tried a version with Nightmare Given Form and it was amusing when you lock ALL of your opponent's SP. o_o
His open is guaranteed and is actually quite neat
I see. It is a good lock. But, i remember anglomis play a similar file with MD - Exot. and is totally affected by 40dmg SS series...
Well, can be 1 of the secret tech. XD
Never underestimate the power of Nightmare. I don't use Urgrant in it though.
The Nightmare needs certain SS like Pafc, or violetx2 to work, it also requires many owl sage in order to really gain SP advantage. The real rpoblem is, urgrant file do not have so much spell to use Nightmare too, except you give up certain grims.
Word of Dalos is good, but for certain match-up, it is a dead card. And usually, those match-up are really tough even you use the traditional built. Those are BKR/Jack, mirror match, Big lawita, refess, gowen. It also don't work well against undead too. And the returning means that you need to use abyssal forces in order to take the full advantage, which means Afel and augmented sorcerer, which are all easily killed. In my opinion, return is generally more useful and provide a sure advantage when used while word of dalos varies greatly against different match-up. At the view of consistency, i think return is a better choice.
Another problem is that, the lv 2 lawita sometimes means you have to manually put 2 sp into lawita which is just another SP loss for us early game.
For 3rd emperor, hellspawn, timestop...well, why play urgrant, just use Gal. SS, play 3rd emperor, hellspawn, 3 times stop, 3 shears winds, deathmaker, merciless death, the random return grims, stronghold now? MoF, soul pact, wins?!...
P.S.: Primer means the fundalmental knowledge.
