Evolving Heavenly Aegis with no followers on board
This is not something I understand. I see Aegis players play and evolve their Aegis on the same turn when there are no opposing followers to attack.
At first I figured it was just people flaunting their win condition, but as I'm climbing ladder it's becoming more and more prevalent.
What's the strategy behind this? It happens even if it's the player's final evolution point. Seems like a risky decision if opponent has wards/storm followers that they can play to punish them not having that final point. I find it hard to believe that in each of these situations they come to the conclusion that having 2 extra damage on aegis before being able to attack is always the smarter option.
Sure, if the non aegis player has 10 hp on their leader it makes sense, but you could still evolve it the turn where you can actually hit face.
