I was kidding, of course. I’m unlikely to notice who I’m facing before the battle, much less change my team for it. If I see your team (or any other traited Honor), I’d be happy to share the results.
But, in case you didn’t know, you can cast empowered troops right after their traits activate, so it’s possible before the enemy gets their traits.
A common example is you cast Dust Devil right away, knocking a troop with Leader to the back, in which case it never gets the Leader bonus. Reference:
