I wonder whether anyone has used Stalwart Archers recently in their Vanguard deck. I think one significant weakness to using this Unit is that the formation can be easily broken due to Event cards such as Taunt, Ensnare, and Shiva's Influence. Currently, this Unit is sitting in my card box and not seeing any daylight.
So I thought of replacing Stalwart Archer's "Hail of Arrow" ability to the following.
Whenever this Unit is adjacent to a Stalwart Archer, it cannot be moved from its position or be placed onto another space on the board by any opponent's Unit abilities or card effects.
And whenever this Unit is adjacent to a Priest, opponents require to roll a 4 and above to hit Stalwart Archer unless the opponent pay 1 Magic to cancel this effect after rolling the dice.
The idea behind this ability is I want to leverage on the formation centric nature of the Vanguard action but it must have an answer to address Event card effects and abilities that will move the unit or teleport it elsewhere.
Then they would be 2 Event card scalled "Hail of Arrow" to support Stalwart Archers. Each Stalwart Archer with at least 1 other Stalwart Archer adjacent to it gain +2 Attack Value until the end of this turn.
I haven't consider which Event card in Sera I would like to replace.
What do you think? Will this make Stalwart Archer more playable?
