Watched a couple of the videos, always nice to see commented MW videos :)

If your tactic is so dependent on the clerics, then why not bring a few walls - and wall one off in the corner?
I don't believe that the prayer to activate Alfiya requires line of sight, or anything like that.

For a Holy Mage, an extended (non-Pikes) wall is at least 4 sbp's and will cost at least 11 mana (but QC). Another cleric is 1 sbp and 5 mana (but FC). There might be cases where it's worth doing - e.g. if you're sure that 1-2 more clerics would be destroyed quicker than a wall for some reason, or you can't afford to FC but have the mana for a QC extended wall - but usually you're probably better off spreading a few clerics around the arena.

there are 3 clerics that are 5 Mana and 1 SBP. There are also 3 Clerics that are 9 Mana and 2 SPB. There are no holy walls. So walling off a cleric isn't really worth it.

There are a lot of cleric that are actually good at fighting as well. So you should always have 2-3 clerics on the board at all times.

You could also use a the Temple of Asyra + Harmonize to spawn the 5 Mana Clerics as a free action. Or Temple + Cleric to cast an additional Cleric each round to ensure you have enough Clerics on the board.

But the problem with the temple is when do you cast it.

Priestess -
R1 - (20) 10 (temple) = (10)
R2 - (20 +1) 5 (Cleric) 1(Crown) = (14+1)
R3 - (24 + 2) 24 (Alfiya) 2 (Leather [Boots / pants / gloves] ) = 0

or

Priestess -
R1 - (20) 10 (temple) 5 (Cleric) = (5)
R2 - (15 +1) 5 (Cleric) 1 (Crown)  - Pray original cleric = (9 +2)
R3 - (19 + 3) 5 (Deploy Ehren) 1 (Martyr's restoration) 2 (mend) Double Pray (temple +2) = (14+2)
R4 - (24 + 3) 24 (Deploy Alfiay) Pray (Activate Alfiya) (pray Temple +1) 2 (Leather armor or Mend if you still need to buff Ehren) = (1+1)

So you can have a 3rd turn active alfiya by herself w/ one cleric or a turn 4 Alfiya, W/ 2 Clerics and Ehren (hopefully at full strength)
