Dervish is a tribe. Minions from the dervish tribe are exclusive to the Vetruvian faction. Many dervishes are summoned by Obelysks, which have the "Summon Dervish" keyword.


  • Dervish is a tribe exclusive to the Vetruvian faction.
  • The most commonly seen dervishes are not minions that you can put in your deck, but tokens: wind dervishes are mostly summoned by Obelysks and iron dervishes are mostly summoned from Zirix's Bloodbound Spell and Exhuming Sand tiles.
  • Summoned Wind Dervish tokens are Ephemeral and disappear at the end of your turn unless buffed by a Dunecaster.
  • Your Obelysks won’t spawn Dervish tokens if the Obelysk is surrounded.
  • Ephemeral is a special tag possessed by wind dervishes. It can be removed by a Dunecaster, but can't otherwise be dispelled.
  • Equally, when a wind dervish that has been buffed by a dunecaster is dispelled, it does not regain the "ephemeral" tag and does not disappear at the end of the turn.


  • Don't be afraid to use your Dervishes aggressively because they disappear at the end of the turn.
  • All Dervishes are affected by Fireblaze and Windstorm Obelysks' buffs while the Obelysks are still alive and undispelled.
  • Windstorm Obelysks can be counterproductive because the extra point of health they give wind dervishes mean that the wind dervishes are more likely to block each other from attacking.
