I was/still am super bummed out about the Skink Oracle’s points cost. However, I love the model, and my buddies don’t play super competitive anyway, so I want to make him work for me. My strategy? Dracothion’s Tail. Give that man a Godbeast Plate! Bring Kroak. Bring a Slann. Make him your general to get an extra spell and reroll on a cast. Give him Celestial Equilibrium to pump up Kroak’s butt. Give him Mystical Unforging just because why not, we are having fun! Bring an Astrolith Bearer. Bring a Balewind Vortex. Bring some Pendulums and Purple Suns! But also, Bring 2 maxed squads of Salamanders. Bubble wrap your Slanns. Buff up your Kroak. Cast your Comets down. Cast your 36” range Stellar Tempest, thank you. Drop a Sun and Pendulum to block some charge lanes. Drop your salamanders from the sky turn one. Rain death upon your foes. Wait, what’s that in the backline with them? A poor skink on a feckless monster mount? Who cares, the Salamanders who just melted the faces off half my backfield are the problem! Even if they go after the unassuming Oracle, 50% chance he comes back! You sure you want to send your terrorgiest/gothizar/hearthguard over that way for 2 turns? Maybe he charges a weaker backfield hero and kills him. Doesn’t really matter! Somehow your opponent, Buddy McWinner, does not manage to kill the oracle (and, if you are keeping an eye on things in the back, your Slann/Kroak tag team duo either). What comes next turn? Up to 5D3 mortal wounds on one unit you want dead, plus many many D3’s of splash damage across other units. 1/3 chance of destroying an artefact just because we don’t like playing with your toys! Another Salamander Unit also LoSaTs to melt faces. Beethoven’s Ode to Joy plays in the background as Buddy McWinner’s models head’s explode in slow motion. And it’s all thanks to a little Skink riding a blind dinosaur gallantly into battle. It shall be glorious. — Now pardon me as I unwind myself from Oracle-induced delirium. The list I envision turns out similar to LizardWizard Kroak and MW spam list. Is it better? No. Does it have an Oracle? 100% it does! it also allows up to 5D3 summoning pints, which should all but guarantee a skink per turn if needed, or potentially more guard to keep your Slanns ticking... Even if it’s not competitive, I think it’s a pretty sweet use of a Godbeast plate if it works and then you get to use him as a vassal for up to 8 spells.
