Hmm. Interesting.

The cards themselves don't really seem that interesting though.

nice but nothing op yet.. we have 4/3/7 for 4 and it doesnt matter that it does extra 2 dmg to melee's the fact thats 4/3/7 makes it good. so this one for 5 is meh.. rating: 2.5 maybe 3.

I am not so sure: 2 cost 5 hp drop seems pretty good (it cross magic 4 hp difference) is right there with this annpying trees + it can attack and has channeling.

You can't really compare it to the Tainted Orc, units between factions shouldn't be compared because Factions works differently. Stronghold is faction with high hp high damage units, but they do not excel at spells and Magic schools, something Academy should excel at. So, having a ton of creatures that have Magic Channel AND strong, fat creatures at the same time would be pretty damn strong. I like this creature the way it is, it is tanky as tainted Orc, and is dealing damage as Ravager to the melee creatures, I would say it is pretty solid if take into consideration that Academy should base on Magic.

I agree with this, pretty solid card, even more so, if it doesn't attack, it is just solid wall, but if we have weeks of wild spirits in play, it can deal some good damage.

Yes, but a tree has retaliate, and more importantly regenerate 1. With no retaliation and nothing else that gives board value this guy hardly gives any board presence. He'll probably be used, but it'll be out of necessity rather than because people think it's a good card.

Phased's phrasing worries me. It doesn't explicitly state that area effects (Sweep Attack, Focused Blast, Charge) work on the creature or not.

Phased ability says the creature can't be attacked. So area blast and focused blast works because those abilities say "DO DAMAGE to creatures adjacent to the attacked one".
Charge and sweep attack won't work, because they say "ATTACK creatures on the same row or adjacent in the same line".
