• Curses enemies
"Mummies roam the earth seeking vengeance upon those who have disturbed their eternal slumber. Those suffering the attack of the mummy often find themselves 'cursed' and unable to effectively mount a strong attack." AB manual
Special Ability: Curse
Mummies have a 25% chance to curse their target stack for three rounds. This ability uses the Curse spell. However, Fiery Fields terrain does not affect creature spells. The ability is affected by the Magic Plains.

Mummies shouldn't be recruited. They will slow your army down and only have average stats aside from high health, despite being surprisingly expensive. Additionally, since they're undead, they will inflict a Morale penalty on your other units. The curse ability is decent, but simply casting the Curse spell is more efficient for crippling key opponents.
