The hunt for a 3rd list starts. Katkats is an obvious choice however I felt that players had practice into it, there were some natural predators about and also I liked the look of Morty.
Mordikaar was actually the first caster that got me to look into Skorne after the Don piloted him to the finals at SmogCon a few years back. I had no idea what he did but he looked cool. Fast forward to Mk3 and in theme I think he could be a real power house in Skorne. The List:
Masters of War theme
Cetrati + Vorkesh
Max Swordsmen + UA
Attrition – He is a revive caster and Skorne have some great revive targets (Cetrati and Kitties). Trading these guys in every turn to bring them straight back is legit.
Delivery – Between the +1 to go first, Tycom and Kats this list can get quickly up the board. You can feat defensively but often you can get work done and feat which may be back breaking for your opponent.
Denial – Between the def buff, poltergeist, manifest void and arcane suppression he can be a real prick for any lists relying on spells/animus. Or lists wanting to hit things.
Ghosty things – Host of Shadows on his beasts is awesome in 2017. Using terrain defensively and offensively is a big boon and also really useful for protecting despoiler.
Void spirits – oh good lord.
Souls – Hollow and his natural collection is great for being fuelled every turn and bringing back high quality models that do a lot of work
Magic Weapons – He has a few magic weapons like the rest of his list so can deal with some pesky stuff. His essence blast spray is also great at spot removal and killing incorporeal solos (yes – I am talking about gremlin swarms)
Takedown – The RFP and no tough is situationally great as well.
Now to test it!
