I've come to mercs from a long time of playing eHaley. I got burnt out with her, and honestly almost never miss her "power." But tonight I played pDenny with all the goodies (max thralls, ua, blt, max nyss, 2 pistol wraiths etc..) and I'm stumped as to how to counter her.
My thoughts so far center around Ashlynns tier. Perhaps just general high born?
The problem with ashlynn is scourge is an ashlynn killer. And is an 8 point mariner worth taking to avoid the one spell?
The key unit is obviously going to be gun mages + Ua. Any of the highborn casters can do it. The other problem is pDennys feat which calls for a denial caster as well. So that leaves me thinkinjg Ashlynn or fiona. But ashlynn is very vulnerable to the spells and Fiona's noki brand is not that hot (although two fully boosted soulfires could end a focus less pdenny)
Basically I feel stuck against this. Especially since I'd like to try to keep eeiryss in my "take all comers" (except for pdenny apparently) Damiano list.
So any one have any kind of success playing pdenny with mercs?
