Mages fit very diffrent role - I've noticed that enemy eithers goes magic heavy or takes only a caddy - in the first option if you go magic heavy you just try to win magic phase with him and thats the whole game - if he gets caddy he probably closes in to fast and it gets to simple dice rolling ... With this set up i have 3 bound spells + 6 power dices - with this amount i can easy cast 1 or 2 spells aginst caddy armys AND aginst magic heavy i have 6 disspel ( almost dwarflishly good ) and 2 diss scrolls - and that should be plenty ...

Despite that you will hear people say its "cheesy", I like it and think it would be fun to play against.
