General

  • Xbalanque's Mana Costs can be very punishing if not managed properly, even in the late game. With these changes the Hidden Jaguar will now have more freedom to cast and use his abilities. He will still blow through his Mana if he spends it needlessly, but players will have a bit more mana to play with when it comes time to commit to a fight.
