Hey guys, I have been getting my butt kicked by Skaven and I am looking for some general tips to help with that.   I recognize that some decks are better than others for this purpose, and I am interested in hearing about Decks that are good at it, but I would also like to hear some general tips for what to do when you find yourself across the table from a Skaven deck.

 

Thanks in advance!

Normally I find the biggest weakness of skaven to be their generally low HPs.  Cards like Master Rune of Spite for order or Offering to Heketari for destruction can give them a lot of trouble

You also need (as with most all decks) a way to destroy units outside of combat. When Deathmaster Sniktch hits the table he has to die!

My buddy wants to learn to play (he used to play with the mini's) and is really interested in a Skaven deck.  I have NO idea how to build a Skaven deck.  Is there basic/standard list for Skaven someone could recommend?  Thanks.

I don't have a specific build of recommend, but I can tell you they work best with an orc board and Rat Ogres are a key card to have in most all builds. Unfortunately he is a 1 of in Tooth and Claw.
