Companion
At eny the time, A Mage can only ever have one companion creature in in play.
What!?!?!?

Gandalf the Grey had 8 companions in play at one time. What gives? :)

I think Shattering Wave needs a higher mana cost. I didn't compare this directly with the current attack spells, but this version seems overpowered for 8 mana. i.e. you get 3 dice unavoidable and critical damage attack TWICE!

I think I would raise the cost and drop the second attack to keep it in line with other unavoidable and critical attacks.

Also, on the Crystal of Protection conjuration - I would change the arcane school to holy school to reflect the Light damage type of this conjuration. I haven't done a complete spell review, but my sense is that any spell with Light damage contains some level of the Holy school.

Crystal of Protection, the light damage comes Not from a Holy source, it is he bundled light cause the damage. I think light damage does not have to be 100% just Holy but most is.

But, since he is called Crystal of "Protection" is better to give him to the Holy School.

Dragon's Breath comes closest to Shattering Wave.
Dragon's Breath 12 Mana, Level 3, Range 0-3,  4 Damage + up to 2 Burn, 2 Targets
Shattering Wave   8 Mana, Level 2, Range 0-1,  3 Damage + Critical Damage, 2 Targets

If Shattering Wave would have the reach of Dragon's Breath It would be definitely too cheap, but 8 or 9 mana is the right cost for it i think.

The Ranges are also a considerable part of the mana cost.
It would certainly be different if it could be used against Resilient creatures.

Be the way .... when Gandalf fought against the Balrog and he turned to Gandalf the White, did he become a Planeswalker? (Magic the Gathering)?

I also thought about it, if the world of mage wars would be in the universe of Magic the Gatering.

You are just buting down an Enemy in the Arena, you suddenly feel a change, your whole attitude of things is changing, ...
... a new Planewalker is born.

Nice comparison on the attack spells, but I was thinking more along the lines of comparing it to all the other attack spells that have both Unavoidable AND Critical damage traits. IMHO, this seems like a rare combo and probably worth more cost in mana to balance correctly for 6 total dice of damage with this combo of traits.

Arcane Missile Costs 6 Mana, has Critical Damage, Ethereal and Unavoidable at the same Range 2 Damage for upto 3 Targets= 6 Damage to.
I have Arcane Missile totally forgotten, after finding this attack spell i really think 8-9 mana is fine for Shattering Wave.

All Sonic spells should have Critical Damage, Ethereal, and be Unavoidable.
Screech Harpy Maddening Shriek and Screaming Zombies Unholy Scream Attacks were my inspiration.

I think now Sonic should be Arcane Too.

Good find.

I don't include Academy spells in my analysis. Since the Academy mages have less mana and channeling I feel all the Academy spells are designed for a lower mana curve and training cost relative to an Arena only spell.

I agree that the cost is comparable when Academy spells are considered.
