Blood will Flow in the Wasted Summerlands!
What was once a fertile land of unparalleled beauty was replaced by a wasteland of ice. Now the Phoenix Elves, trapped for millennia in their volcanic halls, have found a Summoning Stone and are ready to seek revenge for the destruction of the Summerlands. But in their way are the Tundra Orcs: frozen reavers with a Stone of their own, as well as plans for grisly conquest.
Summoner Wars: Phoenix Elves vs. Tundra Orcs gives players everything they need to join the War for Itharia, as either of these great races. Will you play the Phoenix Elves, whose magic and ferocity burn as brightly as their anger? Or will you play the Tundra Orcs, and bury the world in a graveyard of ice?

Two strong factions that are straight forward and effective
The two factions included in this starter set are straight forward and easy to use. I usually recommend one of these factions when I play Summoner Wars with a new player. The Phoenix Elves have some powerful event cards along with the Precision ability that allows their units to hit without having to roll dice. The Tundra Orcs can be really annoying for their opponent with lots of versatility for summoning provided by their ice wall cards and the Freeze event card. I love collecting all of the different factions but I would consider these two essential to the Summoner Wars experience.
