When I first heard about the Ambush ability, I thought it could revolutionize the game by adding a whole new layer of mind games and bluffing. Choosing the right zone to attack would become more critical - if your opponent has a couple resources, do you attack the safe zone with no developments or the zone with two developments and a Spoils of War waiting to be claimed? I imagined some of the Ambush abilities would be pretty powerful to reward you for setting them up and for maximum bluffing, but so far I'm somewhat disappointed. What do you think about the Ambush cards we've seen so far?
What do you think about the Ambush ability?

hello. I have not play a lot with these cards, only with the empire one, but by now i think there are too few cards to make the ambush ability a powerful weapon, they have cool abilities but they are conditioned by many factors to be activated. I prefer the raider ability.

Hi Sherpa, I agree that Raider is a good mechanic. Hag Graef Knights are working great in my DE control deck by helping me power out Burn it Down, Sacrifice to Khaine, Ancient Map, etc. Goblin Raiders also look very solid but fragile with their 1 HP.

I think the ambush ability will become a lot stronger as more cards come out for it. I'm really looking forward to have an Wood Elf ambush deck.
