Hello sir, 

We have learned more about the new jungle Elf summoner Nikuya Na.  While his use of poison is a new development, it is not the only strength he has to wield.  By our latest report, he also uses his summoning stone to give his troops brief bursts of great speed.  

Spirit of the Cheetah, a Nikuya Nu Event card 

He also has a very useful companion in an enormous albino tiger.  Not only is it a terrifying foe in combat, it acts as a mount for Nikuya Na, letting him move quickly in and out of the thick of battle. 

Miti Kyru, Champion of the Jungle Elves

Our scouts observing the Cloaks are now certain there is a new summoner among them.  Among the new tactics the Cloaks have developed is the ability to move suddenly from one enemy summoning wall to another.  For all the natural skills of stealth and deception the Cloaks develop, we cannot see how this could be accomplished without the aid of a stone.

Clever Diversion, a Jexik Event card

Their subterfuge is also manifest in another Champion among them, who apparently can use illusions while fighting, making it hard for her opponents to strike her.  

Kyra, Champion of the Cloaks

The scouts are doing all they can to learn more about this new summoner.

Clever Diversion is awesome!! Assassination have reached another level with it.

Kyra is somehow a Boosted Malidala, or a ranged Baldar. But still want to see what she can do on combat. With Doc probably she can stay many turns on combat.

Like Said Before, SotC with elephants will be a blasting combo against common walls. Along with Gorrilas too, since you can lend a furious 2 dice to knock your opponent door.

Mitti Kyru is a beast, Poison Cloud, Attack, Mount Up... uses a great amount of magic but...

As i was expecting, we will wait a bit more to see Jexik.

Ahhh I love Spirit of the Cheetah - pretty much it alone is why I prefer Elephants to Rhinos, but there's more goodies for both of them yet to be seen.

Miti Kitty is a boss. Really cool to kill a blocker with Kitty and then run through the new space.

Doesn't matter - Vlox's ability only works on his turn.

He can copy her (he gets the name and Ability of the chose Unit) but as KC said it's irrelevant.

Kyra is the opposite of Thorkur ability-wise. Same stats, but the ability relies on misses from your opponent which promotes cheap common play against her. Also, she's the only Cloak's Champ with 3AV, making her invaluable(not counting Dagger's ability).

As for Miti, I'm thinking you can pair him up with NN and perform a hit and run like Scam. Heck, pairing with Abua is even better due to his low hp but high AV.

Mitty Kitty is boss. Completely boss. Favorite unit in SW.

Hey Bryan, just so you know you keep saying "Nu" instead of "Na" when referring to the new JE second summoner.

BuckWilde commented:

All Common Cloak Units? Now hang on, that's interesting...

Also, I love Miti Kitty and the ability. Tag-teaming up, turning Nikuya into a huge Honor Guard/Clinger/Scam/Whirling Cloud of Awesomeness.

xMagox commented:

CD works with Charm, since it doesn't say that the move must be on the movement phase. So...
And as it says any other enemy wall... work very well on 2x2 games.

PE FK BD, SO and TO will have some troubles dealing with this event.
Loved it.

Cool, both Jungle Elves and Cloaks look like a lot of fun.

I like these new cards. SotC is a nice speed booster, something any JE summoner should have. Miti Kyru looks like a fun combo to make an offensive Nikuya Na. I'm not super impressed but not bad.

Diversion and Kyra are awesome. Diversion is a great combo for assasins, and Kyra tanking with Doc and Admiral seems brutal. She is not possible for Vlox to copy but not bad

Why can't Vlox copy Kyra?

@Hilgendwarf:
Thank you for the additional intelligence. The errors in the report have been corrected.

I feel like we're yet to really see what the new Cloaks are about. Assassins and Bruisers seem like they're support commons as the former is too situational and the latter too expensive. The last common has to be the staple card that ties them together.

Wonder how many CDs Jexik will have - it's quite powerful as it'll encourage the opponent to crowd their own walls in order to hide their summoner from the event.

BuckWilde commented:

Jexik will have 2 Clever Diversions. The whole deck list is on the product page at the store.

Each faction has 4 more cards that haven't been revealed yet, so at this pace, we have 2 more weeks of previews! Am I the only one curious about the Shapeshifter? Exciting!

Love all of these. Especially Miti Kitty.

TheDemagogue commented:

I look forward to getting both of these decks. The new cloaks look like they were meant for early summoner kills. Assassins and Spider are extra deadly with clever diversion. Jexik must be good becaause they are making it dramatic and it would be a let down if he's not.

As for the je, sotC is great with elephants and miti kyru. The poisoning effect is great against champions because if you have four hunters wound it, that's four poison markers and the dice result is reduced by four, making the highest die result two.

Please tell me that Kyra is after the image of a real person and that person is not married!

Jexik commented:

As far as I know, Kyra's image wasn't based on a real person.

Jexik's image is based on a real person. He shaved the beard and his hair is longer right now.

Jexik's new alternative card is coming: Shaved Jexik.

Kyra stole Nikuya Na's boots! I wish she didn't look so plain but I like all the cards so far.

tortugatron commented:

When's Bistro's character coming!? He should be the next Filth champion. And Colby could be in the Shadow Elves as they were one of the first two factions created by him. Also, I think a Mice and Mystica dugalla champ pack might be in order down the road. Just throwin this all out there.
