Strategy: Swordsman Edit
The Swordsman is a decent balanced minion, as adjacent Swordsmen are able to protect each other, and even as they advance they can support each other.
Can protect each other regardless on offence or defense, as well as diagonals (at higher levels). Relatively cheap, and can retreat if necessary.
Cannot support attackers well from a distance. Vulnerable to numerous Magic and Ranged attacks. Its promotion is also not particularly great.
