Avian Stalkers is an epic raven unit that destroys units in front and spawns ravens behind it when it dies. The strength of Avian Stalkers, the strength limit of its destruction, and the units it spawns can be increased by leveling it up. Avian Stalkers fits well into any kind of deck that wants a expensive sticky unit.
You can use Avian Stalkers for its potential for destruction, spawning, and a bit of both.
Playing Avian Stalkers as far forward as possible and keeping the tiles behind it empty will maximize the value gained from its spawning ability.
On the other hand, you can try to play Avian Stalkers in front of a large column of weak unit in order to destroy them all.
However you use Avian Stalkers, it helps to have a large amount of frontline to keep your options wide. Cards like Fort of Ebonrock and Unstable Build are good at holding frontline.
