I've seen this phrase used a bunch and can't figure out what it means. Little help please? Thanks in advance!
Melkor's Mystifying Miasma: A Shadow spell which decreases stat's (in these cases Initiative or Strength) by D3
Pit of Shades: Another spell which forces the enemy to take an Initiative test or suffer a wound.
Curse of the Leper: A Nurgle spell which decreases the enemy Strength and Toughness by 1. If these stats reach 0, the enemy is killed.
Basically they are magic combos which can target and then destroy an entire enemy regiment, without chances for Armor, Wards, Regens, or Magic Resistance to save them.
Am i being stupid?
I thought MMM affected WS, BS, I or M, with the option to affect all 4 if boosted to the higher casting value
and that there was a separate spell for S
Yes. Enfeebling Foe is the Shadow Spell that reduces str and withering reduces toughness by d3 to a minimum of 1. Still up for argument if the set d3 reduction spells work retroactively and force Leper to go first say on a single tick turning a giant from T5 to T4 then the Withering taking it by a 2 on a d3 to a t2. The actual doom tick may or may not be independent of other spells that reduce toughness and/or strength.
Right- my fault, I didn't have a book on hand. The first 3 spells from Shadows all seem to debuff different things.
Anyways, I don't understand what Drpieceofme is saying. If you cast a spell, the effects are worked out, and then it's done. If you remember to cast EF before Curse, you'll kill the regiment.
Curse reduces at the start of each phase, and EF lasts until the start of the phase. The only way to use this combo to kill a regiment is to cast Enfeebling Foe, and then cast Curse of the Leper in the same turn, in that order.
It's not M:tG- there's no "First in, Last out" stack.
Then again, I think that's what you're commenting on. I'm not sure exactly what you're talking about with the spells forcing Leper to retroactive.
