Balance Updates:

Executioner on Offense:

Vmrj5O.gif NnM83bqIjotUc.gif

The Executioner is great on Offense. He is best used together with a tanker to shield him away while he's busy swinging his axe like a boomerang.

Against the Wizard with a five tile range, the Executioner starts to draw his axe on the fifth tile and the axe swings seven tiles. It also has an additional 1 tile radius of damage. If that is not enough, the axe can also do a 360 damage.

Executioner on Defense:

Using the Executioner for defense, may require you some help from other cards. On the first Gif, you will see that the Tornado spell helped pull the Lavaloon in the middle of the arena. This made it easier for the Executioner to take them out. On the second Gif image, the Elite Barbarians were kited to the other lane by a 2-elixir Ice Golem. Deploying your Executioner at the right place is the key for a perfect defense.

The Executioner looks cool if you don't mind his Epic rarity. He can be hard to upgrade but he can be a good investment if you still don't have a good level Wizard. His axe boomerang action can take out the Lava Hound and those crazy Lava Pups anytime.
