CoC, Archer, ToA... one minion? Oduten (in General)
Character Oduten. Check him out.
Okay, people been wanting to make a archer/ CoC forever. I think... I did it.
You know what else? I think I love it.
A friend let me borrow an ELB. I can do upwards of 5 million ranged damage before it's over (that takes care of ALOT of characters).
One round of CoC. I -rarely- have to go farther. I use GA and AS to make sure I make it.
People... I don't even have AoI and I still have 1.6 million score. I don't have AG's.... I don't have Db's. But it still works.
My enchanters don't have corns or AoFs. It still works.
Now, I'm not saying CoC is the end all for mages. It's not. Fb ROASTS me. MM hurts me (until I get that AoI... muahaha). But... I love CoC. I think you all should give it a chance. Just my thoughts...

How big is your ELB? And would it be better with a SoD / exshots?

"MM hurts me (until I get that AoI... muahaha)"
AoI won't help you with that. Why not move thins minion away from the back of your order?

because he doesn't have the AoI, physical damage will eat him.

I don't see anyone commenting on his strategy. I'm interested in it too.

It's nice, but i think if you removed archery, went with a solid SoD with explosive shots, you'd end up being far more deadly.
The archery part is nice, the problem is if they have a large minion in the back with decoys up front. Seekers would help, unless it's a tank team doing it.
With the SoD, you can clear ALL the pointless minions out in one round normally, HoC almost guarantees that nothing but the main minion survives past round 1. Then you still have pretty heavy damage during the remaining ranged rounds, but your CoC fires with only one minion alive on the other team now, which should mean instant death. You also don't have to waste any xp on archery.

yea an SoD would be nice tenchi - but he needs damage and at his level he'd need a really really high NW SoD
If he got an SoD he'd have to spend way too much to upgrade it to what he needs...
best to stick with a bow at this time
If the Ex Shot misses the original Target, it doens't splash. So if you go up against someone with a massive Evasion (with other minions hidden behind AoI), you'll have trouble damaging any of them.

imo for a CoC Archer, go SoD over ELB.
sure your ELB may do lots of damage, but Archery sucks up too much experience...
or just go with elb and don't use archery, rely on your PTH :)

not to be a naysayer, but
Achillies Heel of that Strat:
bigger tanks with seekers
FB (you said it)
MM for the moment ;)
if you really wanted to make this strat rediculous, and had money ;)
i would make a wall, use the DM with protection, and then either go AS with PL or an evasion wall in front (to counteract the SoD + exp shots)

Well, I decided to give it a shot and did something similar to CMD's strat. I lose to fireball mages like he does, but it let's be beat some other people. Archery doesn't use up very much experience since the ToA is taking care of the ST/DX and you don't have to put any points into them.
