*Just finished the game on both evil sides, so my FAQ is probably bias, to the
dark side. I love playing synthets, it's fast and furious. I'm just starting

I. Introduction

      This FAQ is pretty broad just wanted to put anything of anything that
might help sorry of its a little disorganized, this is my first FAQ. Well for
those who don't know what etherlords is its pretty much a cross-bred of Heroes
of Might and Magic and Magic the Gathering, which was done pretty well. I thank
Fishtank interactive for combining the best of both worlds. This game is one of
those games that rarely comes out, something so different yet so similar.

II. Races

      As you probably know there are four races, so here they are;

1. Ether of Synthesis

 Probably the weirdest of all the races, Synthets are unlike any other creature
you have seen. As suggested by they're names you'll probably thinking of
cyborgs and androids? Well they are exactly what you think. Synthet deck in my
opinion are offensive minded, having most of its creatures able to attack at
the time of casting or no "summoning sickness" in MTG term. And also probably
has the fastest deck you can build.

2. Ether of Chaos

 Chaos creatures are common to anyone who has played lots of fantasy RPG.
Creatures ranging from orcs to bats, rats to kobolds. Chaos deck are more in
the middle side of things but in my opinion is more of a defensive card, due to
the diversity of its walls and its ability to damage anything without
attacking.

3. Ether of Vitality

 Vitality creatures are the Mother Nature kind of creatures, from trees to bees
and other insects that you can find. Vitals have the most diverse creatures in
the game almost all of its creatures have special ability. And also point out
those Vitals probably is the race that has no walls, though you might consider
that the fingus creature type as walls.
4. Ether of Motion

 Kinets is as diverse as his ally the vitals. Just like the vitals, kinets
creature oriented race, probably the most creature oriented race.

VI.A little think-tank

*Like I said in the beginning I love dark cards in choosing what to put in your
deck always consider why did you put that card there, and always go for
specialization, always make a theme. Eg. Whats the purpose of getting Male
fighter when you are making an ethereal burn card!

*In my Synthet ending campaign the type of deck that I used, was a steal
reality/tap life combo with some walls for a little bit of defense. Just a
little not if you're going to get a wall, a flying wall is probably best my
favorite wall (wall of blades).

*Just like in HOMAM always have one main hero never make a balanced team, if
you do you'll regret it in the end. Though in my experience, I always have two
heroes more ifs need be one as always is the main hero, I always choose my main
hero by his skill, While the other hero was pretty much a gatherer.

*In playing campaign mode, remember that enemy heroes just like you have runes,
so if you are having a hard time defeating that hero, try making a couple of
kamikaze hero just to dwindle his heavy cards, and attack him before he
recharges.

VII. Deck Building

Well here we go the meat and potatoes of Etherlords, as you know in the duel
options in Etherlords, you have the option to build your own deck. There are
few options in building a deck; at first is the resource level. RL is the basis
of your deck this will decide how diverse your card is, just think of resource
level as some sort of handicap. As for me I like having it at the highest
level, since I want the best of the spells. As you can see unlike in MTG you
can't mix your race A card with race B card and vice-versa. So you really have
to decide which race you really want. Also unlike MTG etherlords doesn't have
mana cards, instead each hero increases his amount of ether channels turn by
turn. So here are the other options in Deck building.

Level of Character

 The level of your character is pretty important, cause this determines your
starting health. A decent level of 9 and above is okay.

Specialization

 As you can see each race has a different set of specialization, always match
your specialization to the type of deck you are building. All race has some
creature specialization, so if you ever build a deck based on that creature its
always a must to get that skill.

Skills

 In skill selection artificer, luck and suppression should always have at least
two more if you can spare some resources. As for the others pick anything you
want, just don't let it exceeds the level 1 mark.


Artifacts

 Here is where it really differs from MTG, this time you artifacts are
untouchable. Well here are some pretty good artifacts to always have around.
Amulet of Ether Defense is always a must have for me, and sometimes I add
amulet of the huntress and ring of purification. These three will always
compliment what type of deck you have. As for the others it really depends on
you deck.
Spells

 There are 15 slots in a deck, so that's a pretty small selection, so keep your
card selection very strict, it's always a good thing to make a theme for your
deck. I can't really say much here cause there are lots of choices to be had
first the type of your race place a really big part. So that's it.

Runes

 Runes in my opinion should never exceed 5, in my experience I never run out of
cards, or by the time I ran out I'm about to kill my enemy.

VIII. Card Combos

 Unlike in MTG a card combo in Etherlords is probably the theme for your deck
already, since there are only few slots for a spell. Creature specialty is
always a good way to start.

Steal Reality/Tap life

This is the type of deck I made when I defeated the campaign, though this combo
is pretty slow since the casting cost of steal reality is 5. Always compliment
it with walls, as your creatures. The one weakness is a fast deck would surely
massacre your deck.

Ether Burn/+ Ether channel spells/Wall of lava and other pump-able spells

 This is dangerous deck, though the +ether channel spell will risk that you let
out the enemies' powerhouses. But still you have your walls to protect you.

Mind Blast/Fresh Wind/Feed Back/Greater Unsummoning

 This is a great combo especially if you have twins' specialization you just
pump out halos and let him pour out his creatures when all four spell are in
your hand unsummon, then feedback, fresh wind for extra killing and mind blast
to do the damage. He will double damage both your excess and his.
