This legendary bird, present in many mythos, is known for its longevity and its ability to be reborn in fire. Emerging from Ethiopia, associated with the Sun cult, the Phoenix is a large eagle-like bird with multi-colored feathers. No tradition mentions a Phoenix living less than 500 years. Near its end, the Phoenix builds a nest, setting it on fire. From the ashes, a new bird comes to life.
Like his legendary counterpart, the Phoenix can come back from dead at any time. If the card is in the graveyard, you can draw it as one of your 2 cards in your draw phase.
A good strategy is to use him as hired unit and draw it back as many times you need it. However, doing so limits your accessibility to other cards you might need to expand your game.
If the Phoenix is in your graveyard on the last turn, you might want to draw it (especially if you have an orange village). This technique would allow you to avoid getting a card from the deck you cannot play into a village, adding negative points to your score.
