Thoughts on Satyxis Blood Priestess
Satyxis Blood Priestess in a nutshell
As a Warcaster Attachement the Blood Priest grants its Warcaster two major things: Sucker and Arcane Assist. Increasing the durability of some of the more fragile Cryx Warcasters can be very powerful. Focus efficiency in the form of Arcane Assist is also a very compelling choice for some of Cryx’s more buff-oriented caster options. We also would like to see the Blood Priestess join the fight in the mid-to-late game where her Sacral Blade’s menu of abilities can really come into effect. With the utility abilities to Heal, Dispel, or cast spells the toolbox of options should be quite unique in this model.
Combos & Synergies
- Any caster who don't want to be hit. The various Deneghra are obvious example, but Skarre after bleeding for her feat also like some ranged protection.
- Venethrax have a particulary nasty array of spell castable by her. She have a better magic ability than a skarlock and since she can charge, kill, and cast the spell, she also have a longer threat range for that.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- Sucker! isn't optional, so your opponent might use it to force you to kill models with hits that would not have killed your caster. Especially painful for Skarre, Admiral of the Black Fleet since she is usually easier to hit than the troops.
