ok guys, im here to actually put forth some information to spark ligitimate discussion about Evayl. I think we are looking at Evayl in a weird light currently. we keep on trying to make a list which are similar to her pVayl lists. so here are some things i thought about today while at the gym.
refuge is a very powerful spell and knowing how to make best use of the spell. we have a slew of models in an evayl list that we typically dont look at in many other lists. here is the list of models that i think can make great use of refuge
Typhon - move 6" and spray 8" with 3 sprays gives you a great chance of making refuge trigger and move back to safety.
Angelius - charge 10" with 2" reach and hit a target hard. from there, repulse those targets and move 7" backwards. that puts you 12" away from the direct threat if nothing was behind it to begin with.
Seraph - nothing too special. 16" threat strafe to safety. multiple shots grant better chance of refuge triggering. i do feel that this models SS in this list might provide crucial threat ranges to play the list correct.
raek - can threaten a far 12" with leap and then get a fake sprint away with refuge. can be nifty for taking out models on the sides and getting to safety.
Harrier - i think this model has great potential with refuge. you charge in with true strike, refuge over the models then sprint away into the back field and begin threatening those models. 2 pts and can threaten more than we think.
Sorceress and Hellion - spd 8 with a spray 8 with the ability to grant free charges to the angelius and harrier is great. then you throw refuge on her and she can ride by attack, spray and move 8 away. pretty nice!
throne of everblight - the more i think about this model with refuge it makes me pretty happy. 12" threat with 3 base attacks and battle wizard all increase the chances of trigger refuge. best of all it has 4" reach so when it moves away 5" it can be a little safer 9" away before you possibly SS it backwards or cycle stealth on it.
anyssa - this is a no brainer. move 9" shoot 12" then move 9" from refuge and 5" from light cav moves means shes way in the back field threatening the opponents support pieces.
Deathstalker - while not the most optimal of models to place refuge on, it could still get pretty far. moves 7" shoots 12" then if it hits and kills 2 warrior models it moves a total of 4" and then 7" away. can easily get behind the army as well and threaten key models at only 2 pts. obviously pow 10 might not kill important models such as vassals and other medium armor 5 life guys.
bayal - obviously you need hex hunters with him but who doesnt like shadow bind + refuge?
i only listed a few models that got me thinking of a possible new build with her. the problem with everything is that at most youll have 2 models with refuge a turn if you cycle properly. so while trying to cram in all the above models into a list is cool, it might not be as optimal.
i purposely didnt list models like long range ravagore or pillow fisted proteus. i think most of the above models work well together in the long run.
please post your thoughts regarding my above quasi list. i will be making an army out of mostly the above models to see how it plays.
