Large flying unit that must consume magic to sustain its mana. Breaking free of the obsidian stone that holds them, these monstrous creatures roar into battle, swallowing magic to feed their insatiable hunger as they move between battles and rain destruction down upon their foes. Has Spell Immunity. Attacks land and air units.

Information

This is an anti-caster unit designed to fight spellcasters. This unit is created by morphing an Obsidian Statue into a Destroyer. Once morphed, the Destroyer cannot turn back into an Obsidian Statue. The destroyer is classified as an air type unit. Though it might sound good, it is not recommended because it will take extra resources to transform it into a Destroyer.

Destroyers start with 0 mana.

Destroyers cannot regenerate mana from a Fountain of Mana due to balance reasons.

Destroyers mana will decrease when taken from a unit. The spells are splash damage spells and dispel ones.
