Mag’s Rules for Listbuilding

Home, New Players

People say, “It’s not your list, it’s you.”  But that’s not really true.  You put yourself on the backfoot with an unfocused, undergunned, or skewed list.

This is part 1 of 2 of a brisk guide from the blog’s author (Magonus) to playing strong lists.  I have previously made a detailed guide for Tohaa players, but this guide is for general Infinity use.  Experienced players may make exceptions, but to new players, stick to the following rules for your first few dozen games.

If you’re brand new to Infinity, all the rules are available here, and the official list builder is here.  No codex required.

Here’s how sharpen yourself:
