Default Bless for LA C'tis?

I really want to use the Tomb Kings that LA C'tis gets as thugs, and I am trying to figure out what the best bless is for them. I am also looking for general tips and tricks that are unique to LA C'tis.

Right now, I'm looking at a W9 S? bless for them, to take advantage of their 0 enc and improve their MR. I took E3 so I can get hammers. Ended up with a sleeping Oracle, W9 E3 S5, O3 S2 H3 D2 L3 M1.

Is this at all viable/decent strategy, or are the Tomb kings just not worth it? What about using the Tomb Priests?

I forget, do you still get serpent dancers or as I suspect, is that only EA?

Also you may wish to consider Heat or cold on your pretender, to make your opponents problem with encumbrance more pronounced.

I have Heat 3 already. And no, LA doesn't get serpent dancers. They get serpents and tomb wyrms, both of which can benefit from a W9 bless.

You could take Earth 4 to give your Sauromancers some reinvig.

Order 3 Luck 3 seems a little counterintuitive, maybe sacrifice some of it for an earth bless? of course i don't know how good luck is for C'tis with heros and all.

Well, strictly speaking it is a little unecessary, but I've grown very fond of what it provides you. I'm not sure what heroes LA C'tis gets, but I can see taking some misfortune.

Order/luck isn't that bad, it has a better payoff early on than order/growth which takes a while to mature.
One could also argue that lucky events are worth more than just the "gold" growth provides. Not that it matters overly, people will choose whatever they like more.

I have had order 3/luck 3 in all my winning games, so it works for me .

Order/Luck is ok, but I'd suggest going O3/L1 or O1/L3 instead of 3 in both, as I don't think 3 in both is too synergistic. The immortal tomb king special hero and the sauromancer special hero with odd paths (can't remember the name of either now, I really would need some coffee...) are just great heroes IMO. Especially the immortal tomb king -> Holy Avenger + Bless and off he goes; if he dies he just comes back a bit more experienced

For thugging with Tomb Kings I'd suggest taking S6 to get MR+2. They are nice else, but it would suck to lose them to a horde of H1 priests banishing :P Perhaps something like W9/S6/E4 would be a nice bless LA C'tis.

Always worth remembering that units with native 18 MR (such as the Tomb Kings) can't get the MR benefit from an Astral bless.
