Default [Discworld] Trolls and magic

Do you use Physiomancy or Elementalism to affect trolls? They are living, but they are also made of rock... (or are they affected by both, but at -3?)

I'd tend to use Physiomancy. They're living things; they just happen to have silicon-based biochemistry (comedy fantasy version). And Physiomancy deals with all manner of complex life processes, whereas Elementalism deals with the elementary building-blocks of the universe.

It's biology vs. physics, and a biologist will have a better idea about silicon-based life than a physicist will.
