This week we welcome guest writer Daniel Lupo, who won an invite to worlds by going 3-1 at High Command with a list featuring three saboteur strike teams (no snipers!). Lupo made waves with his skillful and surprising saboteur play.

Sabine Wren: “You know what I do in hopeless situations?”
Zeb Orrelios: [laughs] “Yeah, blow stuff up!”
I have been almost exclusively running lists featuring Saboteurs since roughly August 2018, in local tournaments as well as at LVO and Adepticon. These lists have all been focused on squeezing maximum efficiency out of the triple strike team Saboteurs.

Each part of the list was built around holding ground and keeping my opponent from advancing on my half of the board.
