Success requires sacrifice, and all will feel its burdens. With Forged in Fire, a mid-cost black power, Apocalypse destroys up to 4 friendly Protect tiles, dealing one hit of 2260 damage to a random enemy for each one. If there are no friendly Protect tiles on the board, heals the lowest-health ally for a burst of 911 health and creates 2 strength 55 Protect tiles.
