Change to Lore of Life on Teclis.

Teclis + Lore of life + Book of Hoeth = You win.

That's pretty much it.

Throne of vines allows you to roll a 2+ to avoid the effects of the miscast table. After that spell goes up keep rolling as many dice as you can for each spell and getting irresistable force with any doubles.... then avoid the negative effects on a 2+.

What about the rest of the structure? I know from past games (years ago) that teclis was good (very good). But there are 2000 other points there on the board, should I be doing anything diffrent?

I disagree, Shadow is a better Lore for Teclis. Life just doesn't do enough damage. IF Withering and then lots of archers will delete daemons much faster than repeated Dwellers.

You are lacking a decent sized unit though, I'd be inclined to swap out the seaguaed for more archers, and you could also do with boosting the swordmasters.

I'd also drop the level 2- Teclis will be using just about all your dice, and your opponent will likely save all their dispel dice and stop the level 2 casting.

Another Eagle would be really useful, as would some more bolt throwers.
