I recently made a f9w9a6 mictlan bless with horrible scales (can be a little worse) but I didn' spread my dominion .
Even eagle warriors kick *** they attack archers and routers exterminating what jaguars left.
Hm but my experience with the eagle warriors was a bit bad. They tended to take losses and to rout.
I somehow normally preffered sun warriors and jaguar warriors pumped from additional castles.

Yeah, it's true that Mictlan is set up beuatifully for a bless strategy. Their holy units are cheap enough that you can crank them out with poor scales. Imagine what it will be like in Dom3 when the economy is doubled...


Keep in mind sacreds are still limited by dominion strength and building another fort to pump sacreds is much harder.
But they get blood sacreds to compensate for the harder to build castles. And those blood sacreds are decent .

Wow, I haven't even gotten to the blood sacreds yet. I'll tell you what, Mictlan isn't great for researching, but I took someone's (I think shovah's) advice and made f9d4 for the blesses. Well, d4 has come in real useful for those Skull Mentors. It has allowed me to take drain and still have decent research. It won't be long before I have the lightless lantern, too. I think in the future I will always consider taking full drain with fire and death magic.

I guess I'm not too concerned about my national sacreds because I'm using a watchtower and never have less than 8 Dominion with Mictlan. Add in all the temples I build and it becomes even less of a problem. 10 jaguars and 10 eagle warriors a turn is quite enough for me.

Try not to go abve drain 1 and never (unless playing ulm or a pure bless(ie no magic ect)) go past drain 2. For research build a lab in every sage province you have.
