Man, I love Boltyn! He may not be S-Tier, but the new Legendary bestowed on him in Dynasty has reinvigorated my passion for Light Warrior. The trusty old deck box has once again been cracked, the yellow sleeves are out, and Raydn is back on the table (I’ll cover sabers in this article, too, don’t worry). No matter how the deck is built, it's nice that Boltyn has a fresh reason to see more play.

I’ve also seen some new players interested in picking up the deck, either as their first hero in FAB or just a new interest, secondary to their main hero.  For this reason, I’ll be covering as much as I can about this new card, from the basics and rules interactions, to play lines that could help you surprise your opponents in the upcoming ProQuest season.

Basics and Rules

If you’re unfamiliar with the new card, the gist of Spirit of Eirina is it's an item that enters the board either by being charged or played, and allows Boltyn to play Lumina Ascension at instant speed.  There are quite a few nuances to the new tool, which we’ll cover, but let’s begin with the rules surrounding it.
