    Has anybody used any Fallen Kingdom cards in free build successfully? Ret-Talus and the champions seem too dependent on their faction's commons, but do the commons do well in free build? I'd like to know the same for the Vanguards. This just seems too fun to not try out.
    I wish I was in a Cave right now.... *hint* *hint*

    Forum Games anyone?

    Cant see why the skeleton Archers wouldnt go well with some cheap commons.

    If you have a Custom Faction try getting into card form and really achieve the "WOW" Factor, feel free to use my templates.

    well, they would like some 0 cost commons (liike Fighters, extra attack) for Dark Sacrifice. Legions of the Dead only work with FK Commons so you need some of them, same for Raise the Dead (Ret's ability). Maybe put some Defenders or Knights to buff your champions instead of your archers? But then you are left without range, get some spearman or other good range unit and lose either Repaers or Zombies.

    That looks like a neat build! I'll have to sub Khan, though; I don't have one.

    I can always use a Vanguard champion, though. Kalon Lightbringer looks like he can fill that gap. He just seems like a fun champion to use.

    Default Bonus Freedom!

    To enhance the "Free build" feel, you could even try using one summoner's reference card with a different summoner!

    (Example: Have Eilen replace Sera Eldwyn on Sera Eldwyn's start setup.

    For yet more enhancement, use yet another summoner's event cards!

    Fallen Kingdom in Free Build, eh? I don't think I can pass up the opportunity to use Forced Summon and Dark Sacrifice on some REALLY BIG champions to get them onto the table faster and keep them alive. One immediately comes to mind...

    Ret-Talus + Events

    Krung
    Gror
    Elut-Bal

    Skeletal Archer x8
    Goblin Fighter x6
    Zombie Warrior x3
    Reaper x1

    I even thought about subbing out Elut-Bal for another big-time, high life champion like Malevolence or Kalon, but I like throwing a bunch of Fighters down and sacrificing them to get Elut-Bal out quickly, too, without even having to use Forced Summon. Could you imagine using Dark Sacrifice to heal Krung when he's almost dead? EWWWWWW!!! I kept 3 Zombies in just to attempt to make Zombies Rise Again work at least a little bit, and because I need them (and a Reaper) for the starting setup. You'll be relying on your 3 ridiculous champions to deal out the punishment, and man can they ever dish it out!

    I really don't like Reapers usually, but I think they might have potential in Free Build.

    Sera Eldwyn
    1x Stalwart Archer
    5x Reaper
    6x GK
    6x Priest

    Unsure about Champions yet. But I think it'd be fun to use Priests and Divine Strength to keep some Reapers alive and kicking. Another possibility would be to try Oldin or Grognack since they have reinforcements.

    Since the commons can have the same name as commons in different factions, can I substitute a TO Shaman for a SG Shaman in Grognak's starting setup?
    Relax and enjoy your shoes.

    I LIKE TAU! is Oldin the Boring in The 12 Masks of the Summoner
    I LIKE TAU! was Blur the Scholar in The Great Marsh. Life. Don't talk to me about life.

    No, since your deck must be made up only of TO units or Mercenaries.
