The strategy is pretty straightforward, grab Flames and Mana Leak, bring the Crystal Ball and fireball everything. The apothecary preparation also helps a lot.

I've never been so proud while playing this game. Thanks!
Used Goblin and Yendor to reach LVL 7 and then used MM as Deity as suggested, later changing to Dracul for an increase in Fireball Damage through Blood Curse.
Found crystal ball, took all my manapotions and would i have needed one more fireball, i would have lost.
I'll try it again with the assassin and the sorcerer tomorrow.
