Strategy: Basilisk Edit

Basilisks's attacks along with its ability to petrify offer decent advantage over other minions, and help to penetrate defenses in balanced offensive armies.

Strength: Basilisk Edit

Good frontal coverage (similar to Militia), augmented by their ability to Petrify units directly in front of them, nullifying what would otherwise be a blind spot. Two or more Basilisks in a line can be difficult to break through. They also promote to an easy-checkmating dragon.

Weakness: Basilisk Edit

Basilisks are slow and forward-facing, especially at lower tiers, and their moderate cost makes them inefficient for Minion trades. In particular, the Militia covers the same three squares as the Basilisk. Additionally, Basilisks are restricted to squares of a single color, a flaw which is only partially remedied by upgrading to a higher tier. Due to these square restrictions, a Basilisk is often unable to take advantage of having petrified an important piece, relying on other pieces to kill petrified pieces.
