Ive been destroyed a few times by falk, so I can at least speak my experiences. A lawt is either going to (probably) open with a shade, or a lycan for night, most usually a shade, followed by a three star. One big thing is, if you can get multiple returns, you'll be doing well. We tend to open with our tanks, and once in particular, my whole defensive routine got ruined by having my three stars returned very early on. If you can get your hands on a dragonrider, that SC too helps with the lycan that inevitably come later. It all depends on when they are played, but your witches and expert sorcerers really are the tool of our pain. If you can protect em and keep em alive? Labeau, eskatia, zombie, all easily dealt with. If you only have one return, i would suggest running a dispel if you have it. If not, dont be afraid to spare a return to get rid of a much needed tank.
I cant speak for all lawt, but if it is a lawt that depends on two stars a lot like me, having no three star defenses leads to some heavy wrecking.
Be a craftsman in speech that thou mayest be strong, for the strength of one is the tongue, and speech is mightier than all fighting. ~ Maxims of Ptahhotep, 3400 B.C.
