Pretty much everything you said is how I view our magic. I never take ushabti and stopped taking sphinx as they died far too easily and I couldn't heal them nearly quick enough to change that. I know some have had success with ushabti but I haven't. If we could get rid of Skullstorm and take the Golden Age I would be a happy man. I think I used Skullstorm three times in the years I've played 8th and it never was worth the effort to cast it. It's not worthless but I don't put any stock in its use. I don't think a loss of Unstable would be a good thing for the reasons you stated but adding the ability to March while near the General or Heirophant don't care which one and better healing(CHARACTERS) would be nice. My next biggest wishlist item would be Constructs being immune to poison, it would make them usable which in my area they aren't.
