Academy Priestess Reveal - Asyra's Touch

Reveal #5!

Even the untrained peasant may find themselves blessed, for few things matter more than pure devotion.

What do you think!? Do you think that this card could shake things up a bit?

All these positive/negative enchantments & incantations for minor creatures combined will shake things up in arena a lot, but I'm not very "psyched" about this card in particular because it's basically a card we already have but made/cheaper for minor creatures in academy. [mwcard=MW1E12]Divine Protection[/mwcard]

Kinda the same for disperse/minor essence drain/wolf fury/gator thoughness/decay/mend...

Apart from that, I totally get cards like this need to be in academy!   :)

I must say I am NOT happy with this card.

Current problem with Academy is that around the end of the game, everything get Weak or Stagger, so few dice are a rolled, which make guarding creatures forever to die.

I have the feeling it will make drag even longer than now.

Don't forget about the previous spoiler "Cure".  It will get rid of that weak token or that stagger token.

Yes, still limited to 3 condition removal, if you have 3 of them. But a 3 Asp will sure make you get more than 3 weak tokens.

These sets do not increase game length. You haven't seen some of the most brutal cards yet. There are several that really up the ante on what you can do.  That said, I totally understand the concern.
