Playing vs Kromac
Hey everyone, I was just wondering if anyone had any tips playing as circle vs kromac... Which warlocks counter him the best and which units, strategies, etc...
Kromac is a bloody pain for Circle as he can boost accuracy, spell denial and warpath either helps threat ranges or retreat.
As far as I can see it there are 3 main options.
Kromac - for the Kromac mirror match, he's probably the best anti-circle caster there is.
Mohsar - pillars are a pain for Circle, and although Kromac's feat can power him back up after Mohsar's feat stops him leaching, the beasts can be vulnerable to frenzy (stones/wilder can mitigate this a little). The rest of Mohsar's game can be pretty good vs. Circle - Mirage'd bloodtrackers, Megalith is robust and debuffs, curse makes most circle beasts vulnerable. Mohsar's huge control area helps vs bestial.
EKaya - if she has lots of heavies she can start the trading. She can out threat Kromac and her lists can be hard to get warpath triggers out of. Muzzle is a great control spell and she often has fury to burn.
Other options include Morvahna - who can be an option if the opposing list lacks remove from play. Regrowthed bloodtrackers can make a mess of Circle and beasts, but she does lose her spell casting ability somewhat from beastial. pBaldur/eBaldur could be options too - in a more control/tank fashion. I'd probably avoid the Krugers
Edit - just a quick adition - Circle vs. Circle match ups can be some of the most intense and fun games of Hordes you can have. Every mistake is punished, very little can take a hit (except some of the newer additions - Ghetorix, EBaldur, Megalith and Wold Guardians) and its often a super fast postioning game, great fun.
