Hi, the title says it all really.
I regularly play 3k-a-side games against my friend who uses Dark Elves, and recently I have being having real troubles defeating him.

These are the main hurdles I come up against:

His hydra- burns my units and goes on a rampage.

Malus Darkblade- with his unit of cold one knights, he makes sure he gets the charge on my blood knights and eats thorugh them all with this stupidly good potion and sword.

Spellcasters- he always takes a lord level spellcaster who blasts my units away and nullifies my magic phase...
