New flavor of the week strategy! (in General)

Single minion strategy

Training -

1/4 hp
Max EC

Equips -
Mageseeker
AoM
DB's
EG's
HoC
BoM

I can see a few weaknesses with this strategy
1) Exbow teams (if they hit)
2) RoBF with GA
3) Large DD's
4) teams with multiple DD
5) large HP teams

Feel free to give your input on how you feel a setup like this would work :)

Also A ToA of course :)

I'm not sure how that strategy would do any damage. Maybe add a ToA?

Yeah.. I completely forgot to put that in the original post.

Damage output and encumbrance might be a bit tricky, switching the EGs to Tulkas might help but juggling a high X weapon and a large pair of DBs, Belegs could increase damage output letting you ease up on the size of the MsK... You don't really need dex if your opponent has little to no dex, a 19 dex minion with a +0 exbow can double hit a 0 dex minion with +200 dbs no problem and if you're avoiding penatlies, no gloves at all would free up the encumbrance.(unless archery was supposed to be in there somewhere)

GA, even without a RoBF, would probably tear you up pretty quickly at lower levels from the lack of hp.

It would also be weaker to smaller ECs, they not only drain your str/dex but bring down your encumbrance.

60-70% of my teams exp is on the EC minion, I know the pain of over investing in it.

I think you might be better with 4 minions, 3 training EC and one training HP. Same exp distribution but you get to boost all of your EO and get some kill slots.

Pretty much did this at one point, but HP/PL and a Hal in place of HP/ToA
