Changes could be made here to give her more consistency if alone, but she no doubt packs a punch even still.
Thematically, the power name "CHANNELING" doesn't hit the mark for me. I think its meant to imply that the attack needs to 'recharge' or that it takes a long time to cast. I think a more specific name could help. Mechanically, the wording seems like it could be simplified and specified. In my opinion, the "if you revealed an 'X' Order Marker" phrase doesn't allow you to reveal the 'X' marker. it just sets a condition on what happens if the 'X' is revealed. I think you need language on the card somewhere indicating when you reveal the X marker. See Ranjit Singh's LION OF PUNJAB, "Before rolling for initiative, you may reveal the 'X' Order Marker on this Army Card. If you do..." etc. It specified when you do it and then what happens. Perhaps try...

CHANNELING
After moving and before attacking with Sul Khatesh, you may reveal the 'X' Order Marker on this Army Card. Sul Khatesh may only attack on a turn that the 'X' Order Marker was revealed on this Army Card.

Another idea that I just had (that slightly overhauls the card), would to be remove CHANNELING entirely, tone down her base attack (3?), and include a reveal the 'X' order marker clause into ARCANE ARROWS SPECIAL ATTACK. This shortens the card text considerably by removing a power, addresses the concern about her consistency when alone, and still checks her damage output.

Overall, I think its a really cool design!
