    80 nora supports just really don't see play. The heals are best served by POV. She could go away from the heal route and towards control with stuff like stall, pacify etc and have a spot. But as long as she's a more expensive PoV, no dice.

    So, nerf POV? :D

    But yea, I will take a look at the Priestess there, she has like 30+ nora in abilities ><

    Thought that was done last patch. Think what Bacassy is sayin is that she wont be able to fill the healer role because there is so much stuff tacked on, likewise she cant fill the support role because of all the healing tacked on. In order for a hybrid to succeed they have to be efficient enough that the player wants to take it over either of the options that fill their respective role better.

    I do run a PoV. Its not as mindless of a deploy as it used to be but its getting harder to justify running him over Desperate Heal.

    Markoth, why and how do you use Magnus?

    He is a solid early drop and excels in 1v1 side font fights. I am trying to decide whether I should swap him for Doombringer though.
    Both cost 77
    Both have 10 starting damage.
    Magnus has +1 speed.
    Doom has better range.
    Magnus has +1 defense.
    Doom has +4 HP.

    Dooms abilities synergize with the deck more but Magnus is a barb and can get Stone clan from Zedin or Bastion.

    If you don't have a harbinger, do you think dropping in the doom instead of the harb is a reasonable choice? Or do you still support a ranged unit in that slot?

    Any sort of range works. Another Priestess would be my suggestion but above that I would recommend playing whatever fits your playstyle.

    Don't forget Magnus' CtE. It benefits half of your champs.

    Its also good for getting rid of lava if you have to. Hmmm Its a toss up really :shrug:

    I think Doom is too strong to not use tbh.
  16. Markoth

    After playing a few games with Doom included I have come to a similar conclusion. I am deploying him in situations where I wouldnt consider Magnus and deafening Aura with Bounce is pretty amazing.

    Yeah, but I was referring more to the ability Doom, you can combo Bouncers with Dooms to get that effect and still keep the Doom ability which can pretty much win games.

    I suppose it depends on preference and deck. Doom is amazingly good but the meta tends to favor cheap efficient units which reduces how often Doom is a necessary counter.

    Something seems off. Any suggestions to sharpen it up?

    Pretty much identical to mine currently. No reason not to be running 2 Terraformers id drop 1 NCP and probably Zedin unless you really like him for them. Spellsets pretty similar to mine though I do run a Nora mine instead of earthshaker.
