Soulblight Gravelords Warscroll Review: Coven Throne

In this video TheJTJ reviews the Warscroll for the Coven Throne. I cover their abilities and discuss some tactics for each.

 

 

 

Coven Throne

  • Cost
    • 310
  • Notes:
    • Vampire
    • Malignant
    • Hero
    • Wizard
  • Max wound output:
    • 27
  • Average wound output:
    • 6
  • 4 weapon profiles
  • Not great average damage but good amount of attacks. Nice for low armor units.

 

  • The Good
    • 14” move at full health
    • Fly
    • Big base for back line buffing.
    • Great spell
    • Great Command Ability
    • The Hunger
  • The Bad
    • 4+ save
    • Enemy Shooting should target first

 

  • Thoughts
    • With some of the best abilities of any unit in the book. The Coven Throne is a great buffing Hero that can also do a bit of front line fighting.
    • Works nicely in many builds.
    • Shudder can lock an enemy heavy hitter down.
    • Go buy one!

 

 

  • Thoughts on Bloodlines
    • Legion of Blood
      • extra D3 run from BS, great for taking on those low bravery chaf units this should be taking on all the time,
      • No negative modifiers on Deathrattle in 12” Plus and extra +1 to save with Tactical insight. 4+ Great weapon GG
      • Buff build: Aristocracy of Blood and Oubliette
      • Tank build: Aura of Dark Majasty and Soubound garments
    • Legion of Night
      • Outtflank with some Blood Knights
      • Buff build: Unbending Will and Morghegs Claw.
      • Tanks build: Terrifying Visage and Shard of Night
      • Use Above Suspicion to deep strike this next to all those Vargheists to make them worth taking.
    • Vyrkos Dynasty
      • Buffed up Grave Guard = +2 to wound, +1 to hit and +1 save
      • Reroll casting, is great to help cast Shudder
      • Build I like: Pack Alpha and Arcane Tome use it to cast Pinons or Mystic Shield on self
    • Kastelai Dynasty
      • Can keep up with your BK
      • Power in the Blood, Swift and Deadly, Rousing Commander are all viable on this unit.
      • Sword of the Red S or Fragment
      • Use it at a mobile BK buffing platform. #one of the best ways to buff BK
    • Avengorii Dynasty
      • I would not make the Coven Throne the general, but It would still work in Avengorii. Tactical insight on a VLOZD or a Terrorgheist is very good.
      • Possibly take Master of Magic to help cast Shudder
      • Not a bad option for second Hero in this Bloodline
  • Unit Rating
    • A+
      • Look for ways to keep it alive or help it cast. One of the best Spells and CA in the game.
      • The only keyword it is missing is Monster.
      • If used right can be game changer.
    • Spell
      • Shudder
        • With good positioning and use you can lock enemy heavy hitters down.
      • A+

 

Thanks for watching, Y’all be good.

    Love this series, can’t agree with this score though, too expensive even for such an amazing CA. And shudder is just not that useful imo – unless you know you’re going to have priority locking down a god-moster for a player turn isn’t likely worth the trade

      I agree it is a bit costly, but when then plan does come together it is worth every point.
