The army used by Jonathan Braun to take win the 2016 National Championship. Jon plays Frostwings almost exclusively. His previous National Championship came in 2008, when his missile-oriented Frosties outdueld three melee-oriented armies, run by Dan Burkley, Robert Braun, and Mike DeZearn. He again went to Frostwing missiles, but changed his concept.

The army:
Home terrain: Coast Tower
Proposed frontier: Coast Vortex
Dragons: 2 Blue Drakes
Kin: Blue Dragonsteed, Blue Dragonmount x2, Blue Dragonfoal x3, Black Dragonfoal x2
No minor terrains

Destroyer x6
Advocate x3
Defender x2
Bear Master
Cryohydra
Gold Medallion

He began with the Destroyers on the Frontier and the rest of the units at his home, except for a lone Advocate as his horde. Jon was willing to concede going first to get the Vortex at the Frontier. His primary strategy was to use the Bullseyes to pick off specific targets then shoot the remaining units.

His army was played strong in his first two games. In the third game, needing only not to lose in time, Jon got conservative and engaged in a back-and-forth missile/magic duel with his sister, Stefanie. Both had an 8th face, and neither wanted to risk trying to maneuver up the Frontier from 3. Since neither could land a knockout blow, the game ended in a draw, and Jon took the title.

Sometimes you have to play the meta game. A draw can be a victory!
