Noble Sacrifice Engine
Sacrifice has been sitting out there as a guardian that sees little use. With the appearance of Princes Elspeth, empowered, we have a way to make Sacrifice quick, and gain a lot of Magic.
This engine is aimed at quick explores on Normal mode. The team can stall out, but it is designed gambit for very fast (Turn 1 or 2) explore mode kills.
Sacrifice (or Non-Purple AOE troop)
Hero (AOE Purple Weapon/Troop or Sacrifice if AOE troop in first slot. )
Princes Elspeth*** (Must have all 3 traits.)
The team I use, for which I will explain the strategy is:
Hero (Sorcerer) w/ Sun and Moon *** (Magic Link)
Ideal flow is:
Step 1: Use Elspeth on the Sacrifice in the 3rd slot, summons random knight. (If Sacrifice has 3rd trait, gain 4 attack + magic as both Virtue of Sacrifice Traits fire.)
2: Cast Sacrifice killing Princess Elspeth (Select Yellow, goal is to power sun and moon. Or select secondary color for your AOE weapon/Troop.) Gain Magic to all other allies, as well as Virtue of Sacrifice trigger.
2A: If Sacrifice charged cast again killing Knight summoned by Elspeth. Same affects as step 2.
3. Cast Hero or troop. (Often for 40+ damage to all.
I hope this team gives you another creative use for Princess Elspeth.
