The priestess is one of my favorite academy mages to play (that's saying a lot because I tend to only play dark school mages)! This book is a casual play book but is more of a thinker's book.

The idea of this book is to Get Ehren going asap and then support him, outlast your opponent, and take the win.

T1: 9 mana
Ehren and Meridia's Shrine
end 0 mana

T2: 7 mana
Healing Tree (heal Ehren), guard with mage, Ehren uses action to pray and heal 2
end 1 mana

T3: 8 mana
Temple Sentry, Dazzle enemy creature, (Ehren heals from the tree), Ehren swings for 5 dice and has a guard ready to take a hit for him.
end 1 mana

T4: 8 mana

From here support Ehren, play another sentry, divine reversal, mend, dazzle for a stagger on a minor creature, group mend, the list goes on.  Support and outlast!

Let me know what you guys think.

One thing to note in all of your books.  You do have Ritual of Kallek available to you now.  Might change some openings.  For Ehren I'd be most concerned about a Curse of Weakess, Theft of Life or Unholy Reversal on him.  Has anyone shot him with a spell on Turn 3 before you can get him powered up?  Might be worth a Reveal Magic to prevent the reversal or the theft until he's powered up....yet another situation in which Arcane Ward would be super helpful!  ;) 8)

Yeah, I use ritual of kallek in my academy necro an warlord. I haven't considered it for this book but I will play around with the concept.

Yes, Ehren usually gets an attack spell thrown at him on T3 if I do not have initiative.  I usually will mend him immediately if that happens, but that is always a gamble. 

I do like the reveal magic idea! I'll see how to work that in.  It's a good spell in general for academy!

I forgot to note in the previous post that the tree, after it heals Ehren is super useful for keeping the sentry alive! and he sharpshooter if you get her out.

Thanks for the feedback!
