Pass

- SYNERGIES TEST/ Compare the unit card with all possible currently existing synergies to make sure there are no factors that could break the game by making any unit too powerful or too weak.
Pass

- POWER CHECK/ Consider the test unit and all existing units and all glyphs to compare to and check for any powers that could be over amplified and break the game. Each power must define when it takes place, who or what it affects, and What are the stipulations on the power if there are any.

Army Test
- Does it pass, Yes or No? Yes
- What should be the unit's point value? 160-165
- Give a brief overview. This was a tough match for the avengers. After they got on of the sisters to fall, the match started to turn around, but in the end the Telepaths proved too much.
Map: Alkali Lake
Units: Solomon Kane, Swordsman, Baron Zemo(Helmut), Fandral, Azrael, Captain America(1200) Vs. Celeste, Esme, Mindee, Phoebe, Sophie, Jean Grey, Pheonix, Prof. X, Mastermind, Shadowcat(1200)

Spoiler Alert!
Overall, I'd say Solomon Kane is a nice fun unit that is pretty balanced at 160-165. With the right units supporting him, he can own the match pretty easily, but it can be difficult to pull off. I really enjoyed playing with him. He's a nice refreshing change for a unit with the Swordplay Mechanic.
