Undead skeletons, on the other hand, are mindless, wandering "things" and can do nothing but walk forward and sometimes strike with a weapon. And the giant dragons? Those are megablocksy-looking and probably have a will of their own. Therefore, I cast my vote, and Majisto is my choice.

Personally I never encountered any undead but I’m pretty sure they have their own weak spot, too. Maybe sunlight, maybe water, maybe fire. There must be something to stop them. At least undead don’t have any will nor intelligence, they only react to their masters will. That’s the huge advantage of human beings (alive): They are able to think and make decisions.
Very good point, and that's exactly why certain armies have won certain battles/wars in the past, their individual soldiers were much better at making decisions for themselves in the event of an officer's death.Sir Kohran wrote:Majisto/Merlin was never developed beyond a basic wizard with some magic powers. He was implied to be the leader of the Dragon Masters and the enemy of both the Black Knights and perhaps also the Royal Knights. He appears to have defeated the black Knights, because after Majisto/The Dragon Masters' introduction in 1993, no more Black Knight sets were produced. However, Royal Knight sets continued to be produced after the Dragon Masters disappeared (1996), so presumably Majisto was defeated by the Royal King. So whilst he definitely had power, he was not that great.
I do like to think that because a certain faction has less troops as time runs out that that faction is dying out/being taken over by another faction, but that doesn't always make sense. According to your logic the Fright Knights would have to be the most powerful faction in all of legoland then, since after all they defeated both Dark Forest and the Royal Knights who in turn defeated the Dragon Masters who in turn defeated the Black Knights and Wolfpack... etc. etc. And I don't think that anyone sane would agree that the Fright Knights were the most powerful faction.
So what are my thoughts on the topic? First of all, Majisto commands a much more powerful army than the new wizard. The size of the undead army reflects directly upon the power of the new Wizard as there is no other way to have an army of skeletons unless you are using magical power. I know that everyone has this idea of a giant horde of skeletons, but it's just not there, there is a moderate amount of undead, but nothing truly that impressive. To the new magician's credit the line has just been started, but even so, when you compare their numbers to other faction's first years it's still only fair to average.
As I've counted there are 2 cavalry, 8 infantry, 4 pirates, and 1 archer under the command of the new wizard. Majisto commands 4 cavalry (+1 chariot), 13 infantry, and 5 archers (+1 crossbow cart), a much superior force.
The size of the dragons is in favor of the new wizard, but majisto's team seems to have everything under control, they have dragon wagons and layers and caves where as the undead army's dragons have nothing like that and so it would be a lot harder to control their dragons, magic or not.
With that in mind Majisto overall seems a lot more organized than the new wizard. What if the Skeleton Tower is taken over by the Crown Knights? Where will the new wizard set up base? Back in 1993 Majisto already had two fortresses and a secret shop that he could use. Where are the undead army's siege engines, catapults, and archers? It appears that they rely on brute force, but how can that be successful without numbers?
I know that the new wizard looks cool and all, and his army is very scary, but I'm going to have to go with Majisto. I don't think he gets the credit he deserves. Perhaps the new wizard knows more magic than Majisto, but he doesn't have things planned out well and he's not very organized, and if he can't even match the numbers of non magical kingdoms first years (ie crusaders) when he's got magic on his side you've gotta really think "Just how powerful is this guy anyway?".
