Sixty-Five Million Years In The Making
The Saurian Republic serves as a great example of wisdom comes with time. These physically imposing dinos are also intellectually brilliant. They love a good debate and uncovering the technology surrounding them. This house makes extensive use of the Exalt keyword. Exalt places 1 Æmber on a creature when played. Saurian creatures utilize abilities that activate or abilities that become more powerful only when the creature has Æmber on it. When a creature with Æmber on it is destroyed, that Æmber goes to your opponent. This makes the play of House Saurian a risk vs reward style, requiring you to think out your moves carefully.
The first dino we’ll look into is Aquilia, Lone Hero. Aquilia brings the Omni ability, allowing you to activate it even when you don’t choose Saurian as the active house. Players capture 1 Æmber if there are more enemy creatures than friendly by using this ability, giving solid Æmber control to the deck. With 6 power and 1 armor, Aquilia can hold on to that Æmber for quite sometime if not focused on by your opponent.
