I find it strange that no one has mentioned the Pit Fiend's strange commander effect (at least I haven't seen it mentioned before…and it isn't on Guy's Clarification page):
"Commander Effect: LE Outsider followers get melee damage +5 and gain Immune Fire."
Epic Pit Fiend
"Commander Effect: Followers get Immune Aura of Fear, Fire"
So my question is, what should the Epic Pit Fiend's commander effect actually be?
My guess is that the Epic should have the same commander effect as the regular Fiend… but what do I know. Maybe there will be a creature with Aura of Fear, Fire in the next set.
It confers immunity to
Immunities are always listed like that. Instead of saying "immune fire, immune cold, immune fear" it says "Immune fire, cold, fear" (well, actually there is no immune fear, it's fearless, but you get the general meaning).
More melee damage is always helpful, whereas immunity to Aura of Fear is only sometimes helpful. However, the immunity applies to all followers, where the damage boost only applies to Outsider followers.
Bahamut, Tiamat, and all 3 Huge Dragons have Auras of Fear, as well as the 3 Liches (going from memory, but someone will correct me if I'm wrong). Chances are good that your Pit Fiend will run into one or more of these during a tourney, so it's not as bad a CFX as it looks.
Actually, it's the normal Pit Fiend's CFX that's strange. Why specify 'LE Outsiders'? Wouldn't they have to be LE to be in the PF's warband? Even if the Red Wizard brought over a spellcasting CE Outsider, it would be considered an LE creature in that warband and should get the CFX.
Of course, there could be a future mini that lets the Pit Fiend be pulled out of LE...
You don't understand. It's got the BONE DEVIL in it! You're guaranteed to win!
