Shadow Mage is a Second Era Shadow ranged unit. It's main attack is quite strong, but costs the creature a portion of its life. This can be offset by sacrificing allied creatures to restore health. The Foul Play ability that comes with Shadow Mage I adds an ability similar to Nasty Surprise.

  • Healing Cards
  • Foul Play + Knight of Chaos: Also a 2-Shadow-orb card, the Blessed version can get right in the middle of targets with zero damage, using its Chaos effect, and so can the Tainted, with a little finesse and the chance of the enemy doing damage to themselves instead. They both upgrade to well over 1000 HP, for over 2000 damage with the Shadow Mage's Foul Play.
  • May consume frenzied forsaken or night crawler at the end of their duration to heal her self.
