    It is definitely not OP - but is is VERY scary! Low life common units just can't block Saturos effectively. The magic efficiency is cool as well - Blood Drakes can cost you 0 magic (killed unit to magic pile + not spending to Summon) which is hilarious, and supports the rush nicely

    Prelate was Retch the Grotesque Mutant in "The Dance of Devils"
    Prelate was Archangel the Furious in "Light's Corruption"

    These are the Vassal dice.
    They haunt your footsteps in the Vassal forums.
    They lurk in the shadows of every Vassal board.
    They hang like the sword of Damocles over the construction of every Vassal deck.
    They wait.
    They watch.
    They win.

    I don't think I'm going to reveal the order - gonna let that anticipation savor a bit . It is NOT Saturos / Shiva today though.

    EDIT: joe ninja'ed me with the preview. So yeah, its not Saturos / Shiva today, but Saturos / Natazga. Truth be told, it was supposed to be Saturos / Shiva, but joe wanted to write both of those so we swapped in one of mine. No matter... Natazga is awesome, too.
    I have no doubt. Swamp orcs are what got me into the game so no complaints here. My brain usually functions on a 'save the best for last'-principle though. The later I know what my faves are up to, the shorter the wait till the actual release.

    The answer on how to attack Saturos with 1 life commons is get them on his side of the battlefield. But yeah, if you want to be Prince Elien and sit back and block with 1 life Warriors, Saturos eats you for breakfast.

    Ret-Talus certainly doesn't like Saturos, but this gives another reason to still pack some Reapers (or FP Cultists I guess) to block for him, so that Saturos can't be confident about a 1-shot kill + BLOOD SUMMON.

    Saturos has another Unit that Ret-Talus (and all the slowpokes) hates MUCH more than BLOOD SUMMON though. I can't wait to hear the OP screams when we preview that card, lol....

    Have you tested it against Sneeks? I can imagine a huge battle between these 2

    Nah, I think we decided not to test that MU. Sounded boring.

    When you face Saturos, you run away from his field of view; that's my experience anyway. Wall placement is important I think.

    Also, you can attack him with 1 lifers, just make sure they are on his side of the board lol. Generally, trading Commons is bad versus him.

    Very very interesting this first preview. I like very much what I have seen.

    Because of Blood Summon and Greater Blood Summon, Saturos gives me the idea of the Summoner of a Fallen Shadow Alliance :P

    About the apparently excessive magic efficiency caused by the above Abilities (more about the Event, maybe, and only on the paper), I don't consider those Abilities as OP (they were tested, after all). Very scary yes, OP no, IMHO.
    For those who are my tastes (from a point of view of the verisimilitude, and only for this reason, not for OP issues), I think I would just have wanted that you could only place a Common with a Cost equal or lesser than the destroyed Unit's Cost (but this is just an insignificance; the idea of Blood Summon is truly genial). Well done.

    I always pictured shadow elves as "good guys", due to their friendly relationships with Vanguards and Vargath. Everything changed when i saw this preview.

    I think you'll come to find out Saturos and his band is a very radical group of Shadow Elves. I don't think it is necessarily true of the entire race, but some of these guys are getting sick of the Wars.

    Now i can finally see why they aligned with Jungle Elves, both of them use "sacrifice/blood magic". Something like that was used to create Miti Mumway, am i right?
