    • Can hit hard and take a hit
    • Board wide army buffs and unit healing.
  • The Bad
    • Self healing is a bit hard
    • Half your army in points
  • Thoughts
    • Very good unit. Can win games all by himself.
    • Some very good buffs for your army. Rerolling 1 and no battleshock.
    • SOOO many points.
    • Can be one shot off the board, if you are not careful.
    • All your eggs in one basket.

      • Best troll spell in the game.
      • Short range, use Spell Portal to increase threat.
  • Soul Stealer
    • B
      • Lots of high bravery units in the “10”. Hard to get this spell to work in some matchups.
      • Against low Bravery units it is great.
      • Look for ways to debuff them first.
  • Unit Rating
    • A “without considering points cost”
    • B “when looking at points”

Mannfred

 

  • Cost
    • 380
  • Notes:
    • Legion of Night Keyword
    • Vampire
    • Mortarch
  • Max wound output:
    • 34
  • Average Wound output:
    • 9
  • The Good
    • Can select from both spell lores
    • Good balance of hitting power, survivability, and utility.
    • Fast at full health.
  • The Bad
    • Becomes very slow when wounded
    • Jack of all trades master of none
  • Thoughts
    • 380 is a good bit of points for any unit but worth it if you build around his abilites
    • Can be tanky with healing and armour of templehof. Plus the safety net of Mortarch of the night
    • Very good unit buff mechanics. Put him in the middle of a pack of skeletons or zombies
    • Think about all the debuffs he can dish out with lore of deathmages.
    • I think between his buff, debuff, and combat ability he is an all around solid choice for a leader
    • Watch out for shooting. Pick and choose his fights.
  • Winds of death
      • A
        • Average casting cost.
        • Need 3+ for each unit
        • Could really hurt some armies with lots of squishy heroes
        • Can cover a large area of the board if you pick a big unit.
  • Unit Rating
        • -A

Neferata

  • Cost
    • 365
  • Notes:
    • Legion of Blood
    • Vampire
    • Mortarch
  • Max wound output:
    • 27
  • Average Wound output:
    • 8
  • The Good
    • Can select from both spell lores
    • Good balance of hitting power, survivability, and utility.
    • Fast at full health.
    • Command Ability
    • Dagger of Jet is nasty
  • The Bad
    • Becomes very slow when wounded
    • Jack of all trades master of none
  • Thoughts
    • 365 is a good points cost for this unit. She adds great utility to the army and can potentially one shot big heroes with Dagger of Jet.
    • Pick and choose her battles.
    • Good warscroll spell and command ability.
    • Legion of Blood wants you to run Deathrattle – use Grave Guard. Then use her spells and abilities to make them very very tanky.
    • Dark Mist
      • A+
        • Average casting cost.
        • Wholly within 12
        • Blood Knights or VLOZD supper tanky
