Is there an enchantment that's been spoiled or a piece of equipment that a holy mage can use that will allow them at the end of their action phase or at some point to put a creature on guard. I know the beastmaster has the Cloak and I know there's a Defend incantation but I'm trying to remember if I've seen anything that will allow me to both pray with the cleric in the early stages of a match while she builds up mana and then put her on guard behind a wall so she's not susceptible to ranged attacks.
You may be thinking about Academy Priestess.

I think you'll get better mileage out of her by combining her with Ehren or by preemptively protecting and banking heals (healing charm).  I think I'd prefer to pray with the cheaper clerics like disciple of radiance or asyran cleric.

I don't disagree but if there was a way to get her out in round 2 or 3 as a backup cleric and allow her to continuously build mana so she has like 5-10 by the time you start needing heals/group heals/possibly even a lay hands that'd be great but I'd want to find a way to make sure she's protected as much as possible. I've already got some ideas how to do that but throwing her behind a wall would be great but the flying thing becomes an issue. I suppose I could run a non Guardian Angel Priest/Priestess build and just throw down a Gravikor.

I think he plans to use her full action to put mana on Temple of Asyra until she has built up a fair amount of her own mana from channeling - all while guarding behind a wall so as to stay out of LoS.

I think a Mage Wand with Defend would be your best bet.  But then you're spending your quick cast and 1 mana per turn in order to gain 1 mana per turn... which seems like a losing endeavour.

Could just Maim Wings her, then Shift Enchantment it later when you want her to fly again.

Can you put Maim Wings on a non-flyer if I wanted to shift it to something?

targets a corporeal creature. so yes. however that's a lot of spellbook points to spend removing a strength.

If she pray by the altar she generates 2 mana per turn for an initial cost of 9 mana. Not bad at all.

I think if people worry about her not lasting that long she's an easy candidate for Iguana Regrowth. As was mentioned earlier there are a lot of nice spells in Priestess Academy that she plays well with. Remove Curse, Cure, and Glancing Blow come to mind. Just useful spells you'd rather not take the time to have to cast yourself. She almost pays the cost of Mend by herself every turn also.

Not to mention that she can cast your Crown of Protection for you and then you can give her another armor.

So she is the first familiar with the ability to cast more then 2 different types of cards. Like a flying variable battleforge/fellela/huginn.
And she can pray and by that earn 2 mana per round.

And she can fight with 1 die for sure. That's not much but can help against a forcefield to remove tokens. A battleforge can't do that.

Very versatile little helper indeed!

Technically she can cast some equipment, one conjuration, enchantments, and incantations with the healing or protection subtype.  Arcane ward is a protection spell, healing wand, and sunfire amulet can also be cast!!!
She is really cool.

She's second creature than can indirectly cast other creatures.

So going over Tom vasel video of priestess academy set, there are some cool protection and healing spells from the new set.

Remove curses
Cure
Mend
Restore + 10 life dissipate 3
Paladins valor
Circle of protection
Glancing blow
Asyra's touch

Restore and glancing blow are both solid new editions and could be very painful to deal with especially if it's not coming from the Mage but from Cassiel!

And we still have much more from the PVS set to hear about!!!

I will be playing more holy school mages once both of these expansions come out.
