How to play Crystal Maiden casually![ | ]

The Crystal Maiden is, on her own, pretty weak. She cant deal much damage and has low health, but her Arcane Aura is strong with synergy. The only reason for playing her is to get your abilities used first. Because of her clear strength and weaknesses you should never play her in early- or midgame. However, don't shy away from buying her. Every time you buy a Crystal Maiden, you invest in the lategame. Lich is greatly strengthened by Crystal Maiden (because of Lich's low mana-regeneration) and if you play Ogre Magi and/or Razor, your Crystal Maiden can give you the mage bonus. In addition to this, most midgame compositions run humans casually and the silence can get extremely powerful lategame. The strongest use of her is however the ability. If you run at least 2 legendary chess pieces, Crystal Maiden buffs your team more than any other chess piece (even more then more legendary pieces). If both players run extreme lategame AoE, the player with Crystal Maiden wins!
