What I dropped and why:
I dropped the Deftblade Elite/Catapult Squad combo in favor Champion of the Parish and Elite Inquistor. CotP just gets bigger faster and EQ doesn't tap so he can still block.
I dropped both Preeminent Captain and Field Marshal for Enlistment Officer and Archetype of Courage. EO replenishes my soldiers and AoC gives me first strike and drops the enemy players first strike. I still have pump from Daru Warchief.
I dropped Path to Exile in favor of Brave the Elements for total protect and walk through.
I decreased Oblivion Ring down to 2 and upper Swords to Plowshares to 4.
