this is my take on a Dreadwood list for 2.0.
I think it is quite standard:
- TLA with a setup for giving good survivability.
- Wych with Acorn for ambushing + placing a safe Wyldwood
- Wraith with Ranu's to get Cog and Summoning online more reliably.
My plan A would be (calculating with an average of 2 Dreadwood powers per game) to:
Setup Wych -_> Drop Wood -> Cast Cogs with Wraith from a safe distance -> Teleport half of my army onto the enemies head -> Charge.
I know that this sounds way to easy and will not happen like this in a large percentage of games, but I think the list gives quite some flexibility. If the enemy has a juicy target that is not deployed perfectly, you could also just setup Scythe Hunters and try to kill it ASAP, while you move Drycha with an threatrange of almost 30".
As I am not really experienced, I would love to have some Feedback from more experienced Sylvaneth Players. Also, do you Thing Lifeswarm is worth the try or would you prefer a damage dealing Endless Spell, like e.g. Geminids?
