Would really love some high level player input on this. I don't think I will get a spirit mage anytime soon and judging from how strong it is, it can most likely wipe out a players base just by itself.
hahaha everyone already said low might so I am a copy cat. At about 4300 and never encountered when raiding or being raided against.
I don't know if there is a good defense against. SandSeven posts some videos and if they are high level they just destroy his base. You don't want to have to defend against a SM. Just don't get your might too high. Keep it low as you can. Really. That is your ONLY defense. High level heroes are first priority then troops then arrow towers I would say. Just keep your might down bud, you will face many fewer SM's
