    Hi friends, just keen to get some discussion going on what combos and synergies people enjoy using.

    So far I've quite enjoyed Holographic Sight Lunah with Hexx3r & 8-Ball to really control the state of the board. Combined with Wild Bills cards to redraw Tactics Cards you can really aggressively get some play out of positioning and sniping people. Downside is you absolutely must kill Gata before she blinds everyone!

    few of things I've found;
    1) Maximus can taunt an enemy with ranged attack(Contender), by his switch. he just needs some additional dice from tactics, etc.
    2) Gata's +1 AP tactic is blastingly powerful. 2 Mushashi cuts or 2 Called shots in a row?!

    Gata's +1ap card, and ace of clubs, 3 twin pistol attacks in one go, plus any extra from switches... It's not subtle but if you ride in on a white horse or dress up as a cyborg cat girl I guess you kinda opted out of subtle...

    And as he has so many wounds, he doesn't matter taking damage from Defense. Excellent.

    :wink:

    Could you combo Major Lunah with Miyamotos Tsuchi-Do and her own snakebite tactic for a red, 2 successes, and 5 orange dice?

    You can only roll 3:,:.

    In that case, you may roll :+::,::,::,::)::)::2::2: which is strong enough to kill Maximus.

    :wink:

    EDIT: Ah, Snake Bite - just seen. Sorry!

    Where does the second :2:come from? One :2:comes from Called Shot. As far as it is clear. But the second :2:?

    one of my combo is,

    1. pick gata and parvati.

    2. pick 'pain suppresants' and 'reset 2.0'(one more, quicksilver if you want)

    3. waiting until you get that tactics. I suggest use wild bill for get tactics. do everything you can.

    3. when you get all tactics, go gata fast as you can into scoring zone

    4. use pain suppresants. now enemy can't kill gata in this round.

    5. if gata got poison state markers, use reset 2.0 before gata's activation.

    6. profit!!

    7. when you get VP, time to escape. make gata out from angry aristos. :P

    if enemy don't have hEXx3r or 8-ball in team, it's really painful cuz they can't kill gata almost 2 rounds in scoring zone. even if enemy has controllers, if you have quicksilver, they can't displace you anyway.

    only problem is if you have bad luck with tactics, this combo hard to use.

    The more hilarious thing to do with Tsuchi-Do is to use it on Lunah when your opponent finally gets to her in melee range. Enemy Mushashi is going in for the kill when all of a sudden your defensive roll is :*::-::,::,::,: . ?!?!?!?! :H::H::H::H:

    Other Favourites:

    Code: Blitz with Wild Bill - Once your deck is empty (except for this card), Bill just keeps drawing this card every kill he makes (or switch he pulls off) and can use it to reroll all the dice that aren't goin his way. This truly makes him a master gambler.

    Block/Ice Wall with Mushashi - Mushashi loves blue dice, they are his favourite, why not give him :-::-:?

    Scram! with Gata, or with 8-Ball's Tactics - Easily get to the point and shove people around.

    Swerve/Scram! with ranged units with low Agility to clear some space.

    Ricochet with Wild Bill - If Gunslinger triggers, play this to easily find you a second target, no matter how hard your opponent was trying to block the way.

    "Troll Tanking"

    - In King of the Hill, place a random support next to Maximus, in the middle.

    - Use "Get Behind me" and allocate the damage so that the support only has 1:4: left.

    - Bait your opponent to attempt to kill that low HP character, since killing people in the middle is worth 1 VP.

    - Since the spill over damage is ignored, "Get behind me" only takes the damage that the character actually suffers.

    - Lunah headshotted your 1:4: Hannibal, dealing 7:2:? Discard the surplus damage and Maximus only ever suffers 1:4:

    - This sort of tanking is even more hillarious when Parvati is nearby to pocket heal

    You don't need Parvati for that Combo, as long as Gata stops adjacent to your Maximus, he can suffer the damage instead. :)

    Overall, Maximus is one of the funniest heroes. The first thing I learned in a Moba was: Never focus tank. But in Aristeia it starts all over again ...
    All dices that are scratched together to kill a Maximus. But Maximus always stands there laughing last.

    Especially when they burn everything to kill Maximus and you then use Adamantine! :D

    I have never picked the card. I think Maximus defensively has little improvmenet needed. Scram and Freeze are much better. - IMO
