A half plant half humanoid creature.
They are considered nature spirits, forest fiends, or cursed humans too. I fond many different description in both mititology and fantasy games.

Attak 6(bonus 50% plants, 25%cheap archer)

Spell resist 30%
Immune to curse like effects (Stun, petrification) and poisons

Burnable

Spell range 5

Scream-banshee' one
regeneration-r3
2/hp turn last 3 turn - stacks

switch stance-?
Unmovable, gains armor and fire immunity +speel res.
Can't can't any spell.

Please when you ask to change something argument why do you want that change. ...
Put some numbers, compare to what other races have and so on. Some real info why it must be done.

When the name "Mandragora" comes to my head, for some reason i always remember a root like creature... So i prefer the ugly one :lol: . I think it could come as mobile trap unit buildable by workers, that can dig in/out on the ground and be like the scalefolk trap, but when stepped in, it could imobilize by scream or even explode itself...

But lets see the woman version.
-Scream is a must have on any mandragora, so it is needed anyway... Also i see that sleep and resistance can be good for it too.
Stay Awesome!

Looks like a structure. A mobile structure.

Stats:
Buildable in entbourne enclave as well.
Abilities:
Curse
Self heal
Cleanse
Poison skin
Scream
That should be it.
Image seems fine to me but I think team colour should be lighter?

Cool idea
I have an ability idea:
Ability name: plant wall
In this ability mandragora can build walls
In her corners ( i mean left right up dawn) ( spots that melee units can atack) ...
And she will protect her self from enemy

This is the first time I see a mandrake used as a unit

I guess you have taken inspiration from harry potter.

I think that making a 6-cost unit out of a mandrake is not really fit.

Since in some setting is generally no more than an alchemic ingredient or a magical reagent, at most, i'd make it a more disposable kind of unit.

It might be an ent subtype and it could act like some sort of trap

It might be built or summoned (maybe no sacrifice but with a cooldown/vanishing) and it is invisible in its unmovable stance (I'd call it "buried" stance).

When it is in buried stance it can't do anything aside of unburying itself

When you unbury it you can sacrifice to deal some AoE damage or maybe a status effect.

Production cost at buildings should be no more than 1/2 and it should have like 1 hp (it is just a small root).
