Awesome job Daph  this should help a lot of ppl.

When I started new accounts, I would always do 12CoE n 12Guilds. Then start opening lands aggressively. As you open lands, I used to throw down guilds (lvl 4), as you noted dues to GH changes for wars, lvl 1 SoS may work better now. This helps to get decent plunder very quick and you don't have to plan your final build yet since these are cheap to tear down in the end.

Another helpful hint is that Haunt (therefore HTE too) requires 50m raw atk stats to hit relatively successfully. So set this as an early goal to achieve via bldgs n equip (even lower lvl equip if needed). If you are close, but not quite 50m then doesn't be afraid to use the 1mith atk spell called battle fury. This will give you a temporary attack boost when you are too small to when on bigger ebs. Note that mith cost change with you size (the bigger you get, the more expensive it becomes). So definitely buy 6 (maximum purchasable amount with gold) as soon as you ug to lvl 3 castle and also only use when you are small on ebs that are worth the mith investment (ie mith cost 450m per mith; eb should make triple by the end to recoup what you spend on mith to hit).

Hopefully that helps some as well 

Last time I tested it Haunts took 30mil raw attack stats to hit successfully and I learned this when equip first came out. I could be wrong but I don't see why they'd change it 

This is a really good thread, OP.
I'd say welcome to KaW but you appear like you've already learned the basics.
