What Does Bandit Queen Do?
Bandit Queen is essentially a stalemate breaker - and possible game winner.
When playing Eternal it's quite common to get to a position where the two armies are lined up against each other, neither daring to attack due to the blockers in the other. Whoever attacks first is likely to be blocked to death!
Bandit Queen offers a potential solution. On the turn that you play it, all your units gain an attack buff but, more importantly, they also gain the Quickdraw skill. This means that if they attack and have enough attack power to kill an opponent they take no damage back.
This can leave your opponent with the choice of blocking your units and possibly losing much of their army with no exchange, or letting them get through and causing what could be a lot of damage.
The strategy for this card is all about timing. Its special effect only works the turn you play it, so you need to be able to read the board well and make sure you get the best use from it.
