I think creatures, as such, dragons, griffins,  could be created to play on Hero Mages.

Ok cast my voted with username adrix89
The nice thing is that I knew about this game from the same contest(through another project) and I think is awesome and definitely deserve to win

Alalulu | Mage

STR: 1 DEF: 12 LIFE: 6/6

Madness | 1 Card |
Makes an enemy target unit attack(but not move) a target of your choosing(doesn't affect in any way the target next turn) and cannot be cast on targets that can't attack anything

Foggy Mind | Passive |
At random once every 2nd turn he is given a school in which he cast with 1 less mana
the next turn the bonus disappears

Mindless | 1 Card | 5 Valor
Travels 2 random blocks besides move and sprint,if it hits a blocking unit(aka wants to move at that unit) both will be stunned(character's stun should wear off next round)

R.I.P | 3/4 Cards | 15
Any hero(including himself and allies) in los gets 1str attack for ever hp they have +2 str
(aka a 2/6 hero gets 2+2=4str attack)

Description:A dark mage inspired by all the magical arts,at the cost of his humanity turned himself into something no more human, in the hopes of gaining time to master them all.But fate didn't stand and watch and his magical forces that bind him slowly corroded his mind and turned it into madness.

Feedback about how to tweak it would be appreciated


Here's a couple of ideas:

     Pikeman | Guardian
     STR: 3 DEF: 15 LIFE: 6/6

     Ability 1 Pike | Passive
     This unit may attack enemy units up to three spaces away. Whenever an enemy unit moves within the Pikeman's range, roll 1 attack dice against them.

     Ability 2 Impale | 1 card
     Make an attack against a unit within range.  If you deal any damage to that unit that unit becomes immobilised.

     Negation Mage | Guardian
     STR: 1 DEF: 12 LIFE: 5/5

     Ability 1 Dispel Magic | 2 Cards
     Exactly as the spell of the same name.

     Ability 2 Anti-Magic | Passive
     If Negation Mage deals any damage to a unit, the controller of that unit discards one card for each point of damage so dealt.

     Shield-Bearer | Guardian
     STR: 2 DEF: 17 LIFE: 6/6

     Ability 1 Grant Cover | Passive
     Friendly units surrounding the Shield-Bearer gain 2 defense.

     Ability 2 Shield Bash | 1 card
     Roll one dice against target adjacent enemy unit. On an 8 or above, that unit is stunned.

     Thief | Guardian
     STR: 2 DEF: 13 LIFE: 5/5

     Ability 1 Theft | Passive
     If this unit deals damage to an enemy unit, you may look at the controller of that unit's hand.  Then you may choose to exchange one card in his hand for one card in your own.
     Ability 2 Sneak | 2 card
     Roll one die. On a result of 5 or better, this unit cannot be targetted by attacks, spells or abilities until the start of your next turn.

     Druid | Guardian
     STR: 3 DEF: 14 LIFE: 5/5

     Ability 1 Turtle Form | 1 Card
     This unit gains +3 defense until the start of your next turn and receives only half damage from any sources (round up).  Cannot be used the same turn as Panther Form
     Ability 2 Panther Form | 1 card
     This unit gains +2 strength.  Any time this unit deals damage, deal an extra damage.

     Apprentice Wizard | Guardian
     STR: 2 DEF: 11 LIFE: 5/5

     Ability 1 Teleport | 2 Cards
     As per the spell.
     Ability 2 Lightning Bolt | 0 card
     As per the spell.

     Duellist | Guardian
     STR: 3 DEF: 15 LIFE: 5/5

     Ability 1 Crippling Blow | 1 card
     Roll 2 attack dice against a surrounding enemy unit.  If this ability deals any damage, that unit becomes Immobilised.
     Ability 2 Poison | Passive
     If the Duellist deals any damage to an enemy unit, that unit becomes Poisoned. Poisoned units lose one life at the start of your turns, until the effect is dispelled or the unit is Healed.

No idea about a hero yet since I don't have the packs I really have no idea of what to think of that needs to be added.

I voted said it was an awsome game to play and stretegic a very good community and all very freindly people to play with  ;D


i voted, user name is same as here, maltross. For my character idea i'll repost my Golem Lord Hero Mage type with a few changes.

Golem Lord: 2 attack, 15 def, 5/5
5 valor, discard 1, can heal any ally summon in play.
10 valor Can have any number of summons in play.
15 valor, discard 3, destroy target summon in play..

maybe make so he can take control of summons for the 15 valor one.


Maltross I think that character is more suited to be a guardian than hero because it is to similar to summoner
Also that 15def is one sunder away from dead
