Description

Order as explained by Acidjib:

From a developer point of view the way in which order is meant to be designed is around the theme of military order and formations in the ranks. The resource runs with weak units that gain their buffs from being in proximity to other creatures (e.g. Honourable General, Royal Infantryman). The spells of Order are designed to control the board state with countdown increases and movement locks. The goal is to have very few creatures with "Enter the battlefield" effects to encourage long term strategic planning.

The main strength of the order resource is the power of the Honourable General with his mass countdown reduction, allowing for strong attacks, triggering buffs and generally wreaking havoc with the units on the ground. If Imperial Resources has been played, or if the player has sacrificed well then the resource count should be high enough for a General to hit the board and have Speed cast on it allowing for ambush attacks. One of the most important assets of the Order army is the Mangonel, the only easy way for Order to clear a large amount of the board by dropping a Mangonel and casting speed to force its attack upon entering on the board. For six resources it is not a stretch to expect it on turn seven or eight.

The lore of Order is more difficult to interpret than the others. My guess is that there is an empire with a king or queen who rules the forces. With good steel and well trained warriors they have created a well-trained fighting machine with no room for error. A ranking system allows their soldiers to keep lines and fight as a unit with some religious themes intertwined into certain units.
