Strategy[]

The Phoenix may at first seem like a poor choice for a myth unit as it only has average attack and below average HP and speed. Despite those stats, it is also the most expensive Egyptian myth unit. But the Phoenix's greatest blessing is its ability to respawn for free after it is killed. Once it is purchased, players will never have to pay for it again, making it very cost effective in the long run. This lets players use it in battle at their leisure without worrying about wasting resources. The Phoenix does have a build limit of 1 however, so when it does get killed, has to be sent back to the battlefield from the player's base. Thankfully it is an airborne unit so it can easily bypass obstacles and quickly rejoin the battlefield.
