Lich Netherwalker

Lich Netherwalker receives a minion in a start-of-battle phase.

I expects the minion number to be set to maximum

What Happens:
The minion number remains unchanged (1)

Version: iOS 1.1.1

Also, it seems like it does not trigger additional stat gain from Synthesis trait. Should it?

Synthesis gives you 30% everytime you get a minion not per stack so i think that works correctly. And for the start of battle effekt i think its because of the order, some traits dont affect creatures until the battle “starts” in the codex there is something about that. "the game truely starts at the point “creatures attack”
