The Game Plan

Iconus and Unstable Shapeshifter were made for each other so here's a showcase to show their potential, some anointments are required to make this a bit more efficient so late game is a must.

How the Team will Work

1. Using both Mimic and the astrologer anointment Ascendant, the team will have 2 guaranteed members moving first without any speed investment. Turn 1 we will be casting Death Siphon on our reaper, to give Iconus our first snowballing trait on top of some additional stats.

2. Reaper will be revived with a chance to gain another turn to do whatever you please, if not, Mimic will move next, cast wormhole to the Doomguard. Then, cast wormhole from Doomguard to Iconus, Doomguard will die due to Last Word with him provoking at the end of your turn, giving your whole team his beefy stats and lowering enemy stats at the same time. Mimic's Manticore Decimator trait then gives your whole team a hefty attack boost from that as well which in turn also lowers enemy attack.

3. Iconus is now primed, boosted with Soul Reaper, you can choose to harvest your own team for some extra traits + damage or start killing enemies. Fallen carnage is a great target if you hadn't already received its trait from Iconus's trait already.

Iconus + Unstable Shapeshifter

The star of the show, the late game engine, Iconus. Will be getting stronger with each trait he grabs so use Soul Reaper's acquired trait to its fullest!

Final Notes + Tips


Pay attention to when betrayal procs, stats will be flying all over the place so keep track of who's boosted.

Paying attention to what Iconus has at the beginning of the match can also change how you play the battle from the start, whole this isn't incredibly important since you can follow the steps at the beginning and win, it will help you understand what he can do early on.


Sabredodo came up with the whole team, so all credit for the team goes to him!
