    On the topic though, I still think it is the optimum, still have weakness but will be efficient, team set-up for Machinist at the current meta
    i just know op can become OpeningPerson lol...
    my magic team a little bit different..but always love to machinist ofcourse.

    I would put these 4 mages behind Ironhoof:

    1.) Machinist
    -One of the primary Damager with his highest Single Target Magic Damage (Which almost crits everytime!)
    -Blind can render some physical heroes useless

    2.) Old Curse
    -Another Primary Damage with his insane AoE skills

    3.) Frost Mage
    -Her shield buff will further protect Iron Hoof thus giving him further chances of survival
    -She decreases your opponent's magic resistance which leads to higher damage output

    4.) Mystic
    -His blinding light will always be a life saver!
    -Additional Magic Strength for the whole team!
    -Once he releases a fully charged US, this can reach about 6k - 14k damage!


    Runner Ups / Good Substitution:
    1.) Imperial Executioner (Damage, CC)
    2.) Emberstar (Damage, CC)
    3.) Succubus (Damage, Dodge)
    I honestly meet a team like this before in arena.....they went down like flies...Iron Hoof was the last one to die infact..why?

    I use my usual..WC-VS-Lunar-Commando-Leaves..the mid and back lane was wreck within 20 sec or so..only iron hoof alone 1v5 ..and they didn't have chance to ulti if I recall.

    Basically the core is Machinist, Mystic, FM, Iron Hoof. Last slot depends. I prefer Ice Mage/ Silencer due to better single target dmg and control skills.

    Actually, this team set-up is designed at level 90 where HP is higher, magic crit is higher, and the chance to constantly throw US is higher. I suggest this composition since, I mentioned it before, it is the OPTIMUM team to build around Machinist AT THE MOMENT. It has the potential to be a killer team for NOW, and eventually will, but the usual cookie cutter team can still obliterate it. I guess I already answer it

    Flexr, yea I saw vids also with Ice Mage/Silencer and it was destructive :O gotta level both of them now

    well..hope so...since I been working on my machinist since day 1...

    also I doubt I be able to get Iron hoof unless it shows up in redeems....Can dk/wc/panda or any other tank replace it?

    Also...just wanna an unrelated question here:

    1>Riflemen Purple skill...does it only affect his attacks alone...or his whole team will benefit from the armor reduction?

    OC turned out to be pretty decent tank in mage team :-), with armor from fm. Even without Oc having moonglow, team of oc, fm, im, commando and mystic cuts through wc, as, oc, commando and mystic teams at top 20 ladder at ~70% win rate (lvl 80, 5 stars fully equipped teams mostly).
    Dunno whom to switch for machinist though.

    Do you have vanguard warrior at purple?

    I used mine at booty cave for fun and saw he countering AS first blink.

    After AS first blink, VW came and push him with bash. And AS get stunned.

    But cant tell if VW charge its dodgeable.

    But since his PS its about increasing accuracy, maybe he is a counter for AS and DV.
