Welcome to Librarium Online!
Is there a way of countering this spell with lizardmen as my openent is planning on using this spell.
A slann with becalming cogitation would be helpful. In addition, a dispel scroll and/or a cube of darkness is useful.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
not sure i want becalming cogitation as i want my oponent to miscast sometimes. I guess if he takes manfred out casting the bigger version of the spell it will be almost worth it there always a chance in the next magic phase the purple sun could end up going back towards his units
Slann with lore of light. Cast speed of light on the higher casting and your battleline becomes initiative 10. It seems you are playing a VC army anyway, so lore of light is a good choice to go with.
Other than that, I find becalming cogitation to be worth the trade off. On the one hand, your giving yourself a very good chance of stopping all of the horrendous uber spells that exist out there in 8th. Trading it against possibly damaging your opponents spell casters/magic phase, at the potential cost of losing entire units of saurs/templeguard. Also if you want to make your opponent miscast just take cupped hands.
Thanks for the surgestions. but to the poster above losing a couple of games against him is not an option (i will never here the end of it hes very competative even in friendly things)
