My opponent had level 4 shadow mage that generated ( 3 , 3 -> 2, 4 -> sig, 6 ), so he had miasma, enfeeble foe, wither and okkam's mindrazor

He also had level 1 shadow mage that took miasma

My archmage generated ( 3, 4 -> drain magic, 4 -> apohteosis, 4 - > hand of glory).

My opponent won the first turn.

LORE: Battle of Hadersburg

Loriel was still grieving for the loss of beloved Leo. Not a day went by that he wouldn't plan for revenge on the Empire forces. Crucifiction of the fellow elves was too much and Loriel issued an order to take city of Hadersburg in the outskirts of empire. The emperor decided to take care of the situation by himself.

Turn 1 - Empire

Magic WoM 4+2 +1 PD (hurriculum)

- Miasma to silver helms lvl 1 4 PD ( 11 ) 2 DD dispel
