Going a magic team felt like the right choice with that extra free protection against melee and ranged because of the Armored Up ruleset. Other than that it is a pretty standard tank in the back with Triage in the team tactic.
Position 1 - Failed Summoner:
Great low mana tank card. Looks like it has no attack, but the Magic Reflect ability is powerful and in a briar patch ruleset it isn't exactly bad to not attack.
Position 2 - Magi of Chaos:
Decent magic damage but no special ability. Mostly good because it is a neutral card and has great versability.
Position 3 - Spirit Hoarder:
The Triage ability in combination with a tank in the back can be a gamechanger.
Position 4 - Regal Peryton:
High magic damage, buffs every monster on the team with 1 HP and also has the ability to heal the backline. Especially useful in a fight with Blast attacks involved.
Position 5 - Goblin Psychic:
Probably my favorite common Chaoslegion card, so many great abilities. Heals the tank, has a chance to let the opponent not heal the tank and reduces all magic damage.
Position 6 - Mycelic Slipspawn:
Great to use in the back, especially with a Spirit Hoarder or another Triage monster in the team.
Pretty good first round for me, the opponent didn't do enough damage to bring my Mycelic Slipspawn down, so it got healed by the Spirit Hoarders Triage.
This round the damage was too much for the Slipspawn, but my team took out two monsters so I would say it was decent trade.
Another opponent monster - the Soul Strangler - dies in this round and the Magic of Chaos is barely hanging on. Seems like this match is pretty much decided
Regal Peryton takes out the Magi of Chaos right away leading to a 5 vs 2 advantage.
Cursed Windeku manages to take out my Failed Summoner but dies soon after and so does the Magi Necrosi leading to my victory.
My tactic worked, the combination of Tank + Triage while at the same time reducing the magic damage with silence worked out well.
I like the Spirit Hoarder and not just because it is the first and only GFL I pulled out of a pack so far. Being neutral it can be used in almost every fight and the abilities are great for a 3 mana card.
