The Lava Tanid is a powerful magic unit with an aggressive set of skills.
With its fixed LavaBeam and potential Fireball and Ignite skills, it's easier to treat it as a fire mage than a slime unit, especially since LavaBeam will evaporate slime tiles. However BulbExplosion is where it's really at, sacrificing a SlimeBulb to deal twice its Mana as true damage in a radius 2 area. With the right setup it's basically a tactical nuke.
Incredibly low Fertility/Virility makes them dismal at Breeding.
- Can fire.
