Shadow Isles is one of the regions available in Legends of Runeterra. If you prefer the Warlock's style of play, consisting in sacrificing your own units to generate other units in their place or to gain additional bonuses, then Shadow Isles can guarantee it.
Gameplay mechanics and Champions
The main strength of the Shadow Isles Region is the ability to use the Last Breath keyword. During the game you will have to sacrifice your own units in order to summon others minions or gain additional bonuses to the statistics.
- Last Breath - A keyword that is triggered when a unit dies. For example, the Cursed Keeper has a 1/1 stats and can't block so you won't use it against an attacking enemy unit. When the Cursed Keeper dies, you summon an Escaped Abomination with 4/4 stats. You can eliminate the unit in such a way as to gain additional value. For example, by using the Glimpse Beyond spell, you can draw as many as 2 additional cards and summon a 4/4 stats unit.
- Resurrection of units - Shadow Isles has the ability to resurrect units. For example, you can use Chronicler of Ruin on Cursed Keeper to eliminate the unit, summon a 4/4 minion and then resurrect the Cursed Keeper in just one turn!
- Champions - Among the Champions fighting on the side of the Shadow Isles are: Elise, Kalista, Thresh, Hecarim.
