Assassins are generally caster creatures that are specifically designed to deal most of their damage to through the unique Assassinate and Picking Off skills. This sub-type was created because there are enough cards that fit this description and they all have a number of things in common. Assassins are unique because they will always focus the targets closest to death and will bypass defense with Direct Damage.
Assassins generally have these traits:
- Low HP
- Multiple Assassinate or Picking-Off Skills
Many Assassins are portrayed as Archers in the cards, which is a fitting identification since they are most deadly out of range.
