    So really powerful magic, the thing that people complain most about in Fantasy, is getting an expansion that makes it even more powerful. Good deal.

    Use the Corsairs for bits, they suck. Buy 2 Hydras. Buy a whole bunch of Cold One Knights or BlackGuard depending on if you want infantry or cavalry heavy.
