Gifted Recruits is one of the cards in Stormbound: Kingdom Wars.
Gifted Recruits is a common knight unit with no abilities. The strength of Gifted Recruits can be increased by leveling it up. Gifted Recruits is very versatile and can fit into any kind of deck, but are usually found in aggro decks.
Gifted Recruits, like Westwind Sailors, can be used as a cheap front pusher or damage to an enemy.
- In the early game, you can use Gifted Recruits to advance your front at a cheap cost. Combining this with other cheap, high movement cards like Green Prototypes and Restless Goats can give your first turn an aggressive boost.
- Gifted Recruits is also good at finishing off low strength enemies without having to spend too much mana.
- The levelling of this unit looks weak, because they only get +1 strength per level. However, if you look in terms of cost to strength ratio, these actually become significantly more efficient with the first few level-ups. 5 strength and 1 movement for 2 cost remains a great play even in top end games.
