A niche ability that is useful if your foe is skilled with damaging spells or you expect significant magic damage. Look up what units are imbued with magic attacks and what items give magic attacks to units nearby because that is where this ability will shine. Generally, best if you know a foe will try to use direct damage spells on your units. Although 10% is small, it can make a difference over a long fight.

Also useful if you expect a foe to use spells like Spirit Leech, Arcane Unforging, or Doombolt directly on your caster.

Unfortunately, this aura does not apply to the Damsel or Prophetess herself and so there is no synergy with the Unicorn mount. If you have two casters close together they can effect each other though, which couples with the Unicorns innate 40% magic resistance granting a total of 50% magic resistance, if magic damage is even remotely a concern for your caster, this can be very useful. Notably, miscasting spells deals magic damage so this can reduce the amount of damage taken should that happen. Putting your casters so close together does pose a risk, but may be worth it if you intend to overcast a lot of spells.
