Best Magyar combos, strings, and combat tactics in Brawlhalla
Magyar stats and best stance
Magyar statistics drastically reflect his nature as a suit of impenetrable armor. His defense stat is the highest, sitting at nine. The other stats are pretty average, with strength at five and dexterity and speed at four.
Magyar special tactics
During the neutral game your main objective should be to achieve an advantage over the enemy. Abuse the long range of your weapons to keep the enemy distant and manageable. While Magyar strength stat is not exceptionally high, the great amount of damage of his weapons is more than enough to send enemies flying with ease, and gain control of the stage.
With the greatsword the approach is to get up close and personal and use the powerful ground combat to govern the position of the opponent using short combos or single strong attacks such as the side air or the side light. When using the hammer, bait the enemy into a combo by standing your ground and luring the enemy. Exploit the verticality of the weapon to gain a considerable advantage.
Offstage can be a great opportunity to assert your dominance of the match. The hammer is suited for aerial combat and position manipulation, thanks to the powerful recovery and down air. Play around these two attacks to control the opponent and reverse your position.
When using the greatsword try to exploit the long range of the weapon to keep the enemy at bay. While lackluster, the air combat of the greatsword is by no means inoffensive, so keep on the pressure using the side air or the ground pound.
Edgeguarding with the greatsword and the hammer is a matter of reading the enemy movements. Play around the long range and keep the enemy offstage using the recovery with the hammer or the side air with the greatsword. You can also do some baiting, standing near the edge to catch the opponent returning to stage.
The hammer has one big advantage. Range. Play around the side air of the weapon for medium ranged killing swings that will keep enemies offstage. You can also abuse the vertical capabilities of the weapon, playing around the recovery and the down air to keep the enemy away.
