Wraith Witch Deneghra: 5

The WCoG and Kraken combination obviously works, and the addition of Steelheads to the list seems like a keeper. It’s time to branch out a bit with the Kraken. I’m also currently considering bringing eDeneghra to the WTC, so I might as well experiment a bit before everything becomes serious business.

Wraith Witch Deneghra
– Deathripper
– Deathripper
– Helldiver
– Kraken
Cylena Raefyll & Nyss Hunters (Cylena and 9 Grunts)
The Withershadow Combine
Bloat Thrall
Bloat Thrall
Gorman di Wulfe
Necrotech
– Ike the Scrap Thrall
Ragman
Warwitch Siren

This is not a power build, and considering that my first game with it will be against eCaine tonight, I’m not expecting to win either. The reason I have for running this list a couple of times, is a silly drunken promise, that one day I will kill a caster with Jelly-Belly and Butterball.

Jelly-Belly & Butterball

In theory eDeneghra feats and/or pops Marked for Death on the enemy caster, after which the Helldiver boosts a slam or Headbutt to knock him down, then maybe, just maybe the Bloat buddies will get the kill.

The Kraken with eDeneghra seems like a nasty combination though. It can beat up enemy Colossals and remain outside retaliation range due to Shadow Bind, though tonight I suspect that it will be shot to pieces. Actually I’m hoping it will, so Deneghra won’t be crushed beneath the metric ton of bullets she’ll be eating otherwise.

  1. What about:

    Edenny
    Deathripper
    Kraken
    DJ
    Siren
    Siren
    Max Banes Thralls+ua
    Tartarus
    Skarloc

    It seems pretty good to me :)

  2. That and Lamoron doesnt like the DJ since its the (even in this case IMHO) biggest threat on the board and gets targeted early. Although I suppose that with a kraken the enemy might try to split attacks between the two and not kill either in the process. *shrugs*

    • I’ve considered the Deathjack with eDeneghra because of double Hellmouth shenanigans, but I think I might have overestimated the Kraken with eDeneghra a bit.

      • I came to the same conclusion after trying to fit Kraken into pretty much every caster I play. I thought that edenny would be good and feat turn +curse +mfd worked great until I was playing someone who knew I could do it. Then the Kraken was just a sub par 20 point heavy.

        I want to take DJ with edenny badly, but I don’t want to give up we/sj and nightmare. Extra hellmouth seems so good but it only gets cast in maybe half the game and even then it is one a turn for movement shenanigans. The more I play edenny the more of her subtlies get revealed. She has quickly become my favorite Cryx caster.

  3. I have run a fairly similar list to that one and the kraken preformed reasonably well, I didn’t find the fatties did a lot, but in reality between nyss, the kraken and hellmouth how much infantrys going to survive?
