Card Info

The targeted friendly unit gains additional strength of 1700 / 2000 / 2000 / 2000 that can be used up to improve the unit's performance. As long as the extra strength lasts unit deals 50% more damage and takes 50% less damage. Lasts for 20 / 20 / 30 / 30 seconds. Reusable every 10 seconds.

This effect functions like a separate resource. For every point of damage dealt and taken, this resource is drained. As long as some of this resource is present, the unit deals 50% more damage, and takes 50% less damage.

Notes & Strategies

Unholy Power is an extremely strong spell that is both widely used and effective in gameplay. When cast on a unit, that unit instantly becomes 50% more effective in both dealing damage and taking less. This can turn a unit into a powerhouse difficult to take down and dishing out massive damage, and because the effect scales in percentage it is more effective the stronger a unit already was prior to the buff. Casting it on powerful single units with strong performance is highly recommended in order to maximize the payoff. Soulhunter Card Icon.png Soulhunter, Harvester Card Icon.png Harvester, and Mo Card Icon.png Mo are all very strong picks for Unholy Power, and good examples of what sorts of units benefit from it the most.

You can cast it on weaker units in order to transform them into a far more powerful one for a short time. Casting it on units like Skyfire Drake Card Icon.png Skyfire Drake can circumvent its main weakness of low HP, while units like Lyrish Knight Card Icon.png Lyrish Knight can benefit from the enhanced damage to circumvent their lower combat strength.

Campaign PvE

Unholy Power is highly versatile and excels in no singular mission, but is a great boon to all scenarios of any difficulty. Be sure to cast it on units that will benefit the most from the buff in your army to maximize the effect.

Random PvE

Unholy Power is particularly useful in supporting a Batariel Card Icon.png Batariel deck, but can also be used to aid in pushing the third and fourth camps by buffing a Harvester Card Icon.png Harvester, or a T3 powerhouse unit. In T4, it can amplify a strong XL creature in the push forward like Colossus Card Icon.png Colossus and Overlord Card Icon.png Overlord.
