Notes & Strategies

Thanks to its forgiving power cost and versatile orb arrangement, this card can be incorporated into many decks. Its combat proficiency is well suited to an expendable frontline bruiser, putting out a great deal of harm before being killed.

Summoning them in the middle of a fight can be useful thanks to Fiery Birth.

Campaign PvE

Emberstrikes combat strength makes them ineffective at defeating large, powerful creatures like the Bandit Soulhunter Entity Icon.png Bandit Soulhunter or the Twilight Hulk Entity Icon.png Twilight Hulk on their own, but in numbers they can put up a fight.

Fire Lance allows them to engage foes like the Bandit Windhunter Entity Icon.png Bandit Windhunter and Twilight Creep Entity Icon.png Twilight Creep without being helpless.

Random PvE

The slow speed of Emberstrikes and their lower hitpoints make them unreliable in the late-game where large swarms of late tier creatures and towers are encountered.

PvP Strategy Disclaimer
  • T4 cards are generally not used in 1vs1 Player vs Player (PvP) matches.
  • The following strategies can be applied to 2vs2 and 3vs3 matches, where T4 can be more often found in play.

Emberstrike is built as a low-cost workhorse. Its high damage output enables it to swarm and conquer unprepared enemy lines, but its low HP and counter type keep it less than favorable.


  • Can be very easily spammed and is strong in numbers.

Thanks to a measly 120 power cost, Emberstrikes are very easy to summon in bulk and can do alot of damage in groups.

  • Emberstrike Fire Lance Ability Icon.png Fire Lance can penetrate targets and hit flyers.

The nature of this skill allows Emberstrikes to hit more vulnerable targets sitting behind tougher frontline creatures. Furthermore its capacity to hit a flying target grants it excellent versatility.


  • Counter Damage is unfavorable

In T4, medium units are few and far between. Rarely do Emberstrikes effectively capitalize on their counter.

  • Emberstrike has low HP.

With an upgraded health pool only modestly above a Power Well, Emberstrike is very easy to kill.

  • Melee Vulnerabilities

While Emberstrike Fire Lance Ability Icon.png Fire Lance can remedy to an extent, Emberstrike is still a melee creature; Innately vulnerable to Crowd Control.
