    Likewise. The Hector-Conall one is very close, but I lean towards Hector as well. Medusa's an easy pick.

    I'll have to think about the first, but I think Cuchulainn can take Arthur. IMO he's definitely one of the better picks in the draft.

    I hope you realize I was being playful, Natalie.

    Ajax is some guy. Medea is a sorceress who can put a dragon to sleep and hypnotize an inanimate object. I couldn't believe she lost the last one, but she sure should win this one.

    Medea (prepped) VS Ajax the Lesser (Prepared)

    Medea's magic seems sufficient to take this one. Ajax is impressive, certainly, but doesn't seem to possess the level of power or magical artifacts required to challenge and beat a sorceress of her level. Not when she's prepared, as well, at least.

    Arthur VS Cúchulainn

    If it were any other fighter, Arthur would probably have a good shot at taking this. He's got some pretty powerful magical weaponry, after all. Cúchulainn, however, is just a bit too beastly. With preparation, I might lean more in Arthur's direction, but I'm not convinced he has quite what it takes as things stand.

    Definitely agree on Medea. I think Arthur narrowly wins his match, though.

    I'll officially vote for Cuchulainn.

    Sojobo VS Angantyr ALIGNED WITH Týr

    Angantyr is pretty good, but most of his advantage comes from his sword. Sojobo, on the other hand, has a good deal more variety in abilities, and is probably an edge ahead in actual skill, as well. Given Tyrfing's properties, I imagine Angantyr could win if he was able to land a decent hit on Sojobo, and having the god of combat on his side certainly can't hurt. Given the kind of tengu magic Sojobo can use, though, I'm not entirely convinced he's going to be able to do that before Sojobo gets a shot in. The sword makes it close, and Angantyr might be able to take it with the first swing, but I think Sojobo is good enough to avoid getting killed instantly and clever enough to avoid letting it happen again. Still narrow, though.

    Nuada Airgetlám aligned with Freyr VS Gunther

    Gunther still isn't any more impressive to me than he was last time he appeared. Nuada gets my vote, here.

    Despite Sojobo's skills, I think Angantyr and his beastly sword - especially with the help of Tyr - can get a hit in quickly enough. However, it is pretty close.

    I agree on the second.

    You're... Kidding right? Tyr himself couldn't take Sojobo. He's a freakin wind demon god with the power of 1000 lesser demons, and is the expert swordfighter in the whole myth involving him. He's faster, stronger, and supernaturally powerful. This would actually be worse than Despero.
