That should work without additional coding, and sounds good. However, isn't that mage little to tanky? 30 hp? How about 15 or something about that.

But he has rather weaker spells, with low (3 tiles) range and is meant to be unit able to both cast and fight. That one obviously isn't a unit to fight, given it has no attack. Only one of runes really have three tiles range, because all others have auras with additional range. So that is a mage support that can easily be keep far from front. Such units should be quite easy to kill once you break frontline, otherwise they are quite unbalanced.

Lowered casting range of 2 runes.
And this one too is still pretty frontline.
At least i tried to make him so.

As for Dwarven Priest - he has great healing (15 hp!) and strenghten. And speed 3. And can get double strike buff.

Well ok, we will see how it will work.
About double strike on any casters, that's insane.

Also range 2 tiles means that he has even lower range for some of abilities than dwarf cleric.

Lol we have already 2-3 units with the exact same keyword (runes)
I would start making an image for this but old cool ideas are forgotten and i want you to revisit those pages and unite the posts.
Not make new ones.

Rune smith:

Rune caster:

I don't like older ideas: too many abilities, too varied ones
rune smith's ability that acts completely different for each unit will be really hard to coding, some effects are a bit too powerful (+heal rate for Priest/cleric or +health to dwarven warrior).
Rune caster's abilities are also way too powerful: for example "Abundance" casted on barracks will allow to spaqm 1 turn dwarven warriors, "Boulder" will allow to stop some units completely, "Breeze" is just too much for dwarves - +1 speed! JUST NO.

Also another no for rune caster is that EACH rune must be researched first. i rather research upgrade to clerics and after train some clerics.

And last one - dwarves have lots of buffing spells including this current mage's ones and Battle priest's, they don't even more as well as they don't need debuffing spells exept of slowing and disenchant.

hmm ok because I really like the image you posted I will make a image.
But a unit named rune smith must be made because I already like the idea of dwarfs forging runes (can you go to the rune smith post and try make some new stats for them ? )

He will become Unique unit (that you can get only one at any given time) but with great abilities.
