Now 8th ed has been around of awhile i thought it would be good to see what lore’s of magic everyone uses. This is assuming that your have not tailored to a pacific army and for a general list, however if you wish to discuss merits of lore’s against certain armies/lists feel free.
If you vote please state what draws you to the lore and how you find it benefits.

i use metal and shadow as my main opponets are dwarves Lizzard men and warrios of chaos so almost all the spells are usefull against something in each of those armies
This is tough to answer since you can take multiple lores if you take multiple sorceresses.
Though, I answered as if I was taking a single level 4. The buffs/debuffs of shadow are just too good and work against everything. I'll throw out a honorary mention to dark as well because of the very low casting totals and when using with a sac dagger you have plenty of dice leftover for the support sorceress if using one.
My gut feeling is that shadow/dark are the most common lores taken especially in combo.
i use either shadow/death or shadow/metal as sword of aiban and glittering robes are just fantastic buffs, and shadow has all the debuffing one could ever want.
Plus final transmutation on a goblin army is just hilarious.
My primary usually uses Dark Magic, secondary and tertiary ones are usually Death and Fire. Though I'll rotate in Shadow and Metal as well, I have a sorceress combination for each to use at different points values so I can shuffle around as I wish
Fantasy: Wood Elves, Dark Elves, Beastmen and Tomb Kings.
LotR: Misty Mountains and Rohan
Shadow/Metal hands down
Sorceress on Dark Pegasus - Death. Flies about weakening the enemy with Soulblight/killing off heroes/champions/BSBs with Caress/Fate.
With that one exception, I usually take Dark Magic. If I have 2-3 Casters, then I'll usually take Metal as well, or a duplicate.
hi, when playing my lizzies, i usually go with heavens, at least for my priests, however, I haven´t played that much warhammer, so I dont know.
what lore do you guys think I should start with for my DE?? my first caster will be a Supreme sorceress on foot, any ideas??
Try using Dark Magic for your first few games, then try out the other Lores till you find one you're happy with. Even a lvl 2 Sorceress can cause headaches in the Magic phase thanks to Druchii Sorcery.
Fantasy - Dark Elves, Warriors of Chaos \/ 40K - Word BearersChaos Space Marines
Vargarna i Vinterkylan Chaos Warriors Army Project
ok I´ll go with that, if you´re just reading all the spells from the different lores, I think shadow seems pretty good.
do you guys like shadow or do u prefer any other??
