Nothing screams "mastermind" more than a guy doing a cool action maneuver
I was actually thinking the same. I don't understand the card's flavour at all.
Unless the flavour is supposed to be like "this war is so serious even people who would normally direct things from behind the shadows are now fighting on the frontlines". In which case it's still a fail. At least show us characters we've never seen in "action", like Teysa. This is just a regular faerie rogue (it's even a rogue instead of a wizard or advisor) with a mismatching name slapped on it.
