Here is the artwork for Conquer, by Jason Engle.

Some nice suggestions have been made already on BGG

My guess: An incantation spell that lets you take control of an enemy conjuration. The cost might just be twice the cost of the conjuration, or it might be increased/reduced based on how many enemy/friendly units are in the zone, or it might depend on other parameters. But I definitely think it will involve taking control of a conjuration.

Edit: I suppose it could also work as an enchantment, similar to Mind Control.

I was thinking of it being an incantation at first as well, ACG. The thing is, an enchantment could be dispelled to retrieve your conjuration back. The fact that it has such a simple counter makes it more balanced in my opinion and allows it to be cheaper.

I must say, I really like the artwork. My Priest likes fire, but he's not particularly fond of the Temple of Asyra. Seeing it Burn makes me smile.

First time seeing it in full color. Looks good

Yeah, but I hope that the card won't suck. :)
I'd like to try the Warlord, but it was just 'meh' so far and any useful card for him is most welcome.
