    super71 I need me some PIE!

    So here's my knock back bg that I've had pretty good success with over my last 5 games or so.

    x1 barbarian druid- for the heals and detection
    Euan ironfist- Mostly for euan's hammer I don't actually deploy him much, and he can probably be changed out.
    x2 flamebreath ballista
    x2 fury of the storm
    x2 grintmaw gravitone
    x2 grintmaw magnificent
    x1 grintmaw sealer
    x1 ironfist minister
    x2 lodestone builder Thought i'd use these 2 more but they have garbage range, low damage, large slow unis, I will probably change them out we shall see
    x2 northern cross priestess
    x1 priest of valdac
    x2 terraformer
    x1 barricade
    x1 disarm
    x2 eroding winds
    x1 hammer throw
    x1 macademize
    x2 open the earth
    x1 earthshaker
    x1 iron fist standard
    x1 vial of holy water

    Basically it's all about the knock back and if you have any questions about what upgrades or possible suggestions feel free to write them here.

    Why not use sweep units also? I still think sweep cost 1AP is a bug, it should be 3/4AP.
    And conscripted warrior, for 40 nora he is worth using even in late game for replacing something damaged/doomed.

    Don't really like many of the sweep units, and just didn't have space for conscripted warrior.

    - Yeah sweep still hits friendlies too right?

    Not sure haven't checked, I just think sweep requires too much champion positioning and hopes that your opponent clumps together their units.

    Yes, Sweep hits friendlies, no, the 1 AP is not a bug -- that's its correct cost.

    Any thoughts to adding Charger with his Breaking the Line ability?

    What? sweep has always been 1 ap

    yeah but its crazy powerful for 1 ap compaired to nova's 3 AP etc, so feels strange (bug), and not being on attack chain either, but its not used that often because it takes luck/skill with position to get full dmg
    especially in a knockback deck where you do so much dmg with relics,physimmune,groundcontrol

    Its strange design sure but it ain't a bug
