Magic: Legends Unveils Black Mana Necromancer Class

Magic: Legends is a Diablo-like action RPG based on the popular card game, and so all of its classes are based on one of the traditional Mana colors. Developer Cryptic Studios has now revealed the fifth and final Mana color’s associated class: the Black Mana wielding Necromancer.

According to a blog post, the Necromancer is a devotee of death and decay, letting them manipulate minions from the dead and make sacrifices to charge their attacks. The class is largely based around the power set of Liliana Vess from the Magic card game, one of the more popular Planeswalker characters. The power set revolves around reanimating corpses, debuffing enemies with curses, and sacrificing your allied creatures.

Necromancer’s primary ability is called Grim Siphon, a mid-range attack that also poisons the enemy and heals the player. The secondary ability, Grave Upheaval, damages enemies and summons skeletons to their side, while the utility ability Soul Wither poisons and slows enemies immediately around the player in a black cloud and healing the player. As an example, you could summon creatures, then use your health to cast a powerful spell, and then sacrifice one of the creatures to get your health back.

In many ways this is the opposite of the most recent class revealed, the White Mana powered Sanctifier. That one is a long-range support class with powerful healing abilities. Those join the other three known classes: Mind Mage (Blue), Geomancer (Red), and Beastcaller (Green).

Magic Legends is currently in beta. It’s coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
