ARCANE PLOT
Once per game, Demona may cast a Unique Spell. Before that spell is cast, you may choose an opponent’s Unique Hero. That opponent must move at least as many unrevealed Order Markers to the chosen Hero's card as there are Order Markers on this card, up to a maximum of three. While Demona is casting a spell, figures with the Blind Warrior special power are not affected, she has the Magical Defense special power, and when she is attacked by an opponent's figure that does not have the Magical Defense special power, the most wounds she can take for this attack is one.
Would that fight? The squeeze is already tight.
The Magical Defense is only active when she casts the spell. Are we expecting her to cast a defensive spell thus needing the extra verbiage for the defensive aspect? I figured we were just talking offense/on her turn here, to bypass opponent's Magical Defense.
That's the wording on Kristoff von Doom, which we cut earlier because it's also pretty wordy:

While Demona is casting a spell, figures with the Blind Warrior special power are not affected, and whenever a special power on an Army Card or glyph refers to the Magical Defense special power, it refers to this special power as well.
But if it fits, it definitely has my stamp of approval. We could probably even cheat it down to this:
