Would this work? (in General)

OK this is my turn for a strat that i think might work....Don't trash me to pieces I have not played in this new CB for very long.

4 minions

1st 1/2 HP Max MM
2nd 1/3 HP 1/2 MM Max AMF (These exact ratios could vary)
3rd 1/3 HP 1/2 MM Max GA
4th 1/2 HP Max MM

Steel Familiar Junction on 4th minion

AoJ on 4th minion
AoL on 1st minion
AoAC on 2 minions
BoE on 3 minions
Corn on 4 minions
SB's on 4 minion
COI on 3 minions
AG's on 4 minions

I should add the reason i like this is because of the amount of times i hit in a round 5....plus my GA could possibly hit 5 times (unlikely) and also possible my AMF hits 5 times (very unlikely)

Range penalties would make you do very little damage and because of diluted exp you wouldn't last very long. Any AMF and GA teams would kill you. The only EO you wouldn't be hurt by is EC. So basically its not a very good idea ;)

you have enough of a new user bonus to be able to afford trying this, but I can assure you that you will regret it very quickly.

With that many minions, I'd consider ablative shield. It could reduce the HP expense and increase the MM allotment.

The AS idea would make the build stronger against AMF, but weaker against DM. But that could be a choice.

Another thing to consider would be to go one large MM and one semi-large FB. FB can act as the "clean-up" you are looking for with your large number of blows, but you could keep it more concentrated. In fact, before I switched to Hal that was what I did -- one minion-based FB and a familiar based MM (SF). Worked ok, except mageseekers ate my lunch. So I switched to Hal and it has worked pretty well.

Of course, any build using FB would have to consider DM, if nothing else than to limit the damage back from GA. But if you went FB/familiar/DM, you'd just become Hubbell, and that's no fun. *smile*
