The above list is designed to complement my other list for abilities that take place during an army's turn of activation.

Corrections and suggestions welcome and appreciated.

Good list. I can spot at least a couple things you missed, off the top of my head.

Stealth Leap is another power that ignores the passing swipe.

Acolarh's Aura power is not on your list.

Charos has Counter strike, as do Kaemon Awa and the Kozuke Samurai.

A quick flip through the cards will let you know if anything else is missing. Use the official cards, not the card-sized versions.

I'm pretty embarrassed about missing the all of those counter-strike units. Thanks!

I've updated the list with your suggestions. However, I did leave off Acolarh's "Leaf of the Home Tree Aura" on purpose. I wanted to focus this list on abilities that benefit a unit itself. I did need to clarify that in my introduction, so I've changed "conferred from other units" to "conferred to/from other units." Sev_ already has an excellent listing of those abilites.

Thanks again!
