The power of Water Magic lies in the following spells Bless, Dispel, Cure, Forgetfulness, Teleport, Prayer and Clone. Casting Bless can significantly increase damage of creature stacks that have a decent range of damage, for example, Harpy Hags and Storm Elementals. With Dispel and Cure a hero can remove unwanted spell effects, and they are almost compulsory when playing against human opponents. Be careful when casting mass Dispel, as it may remove positive spells from your troops and negative spells from the enemy troops.
In sieges, the Teleport spell can be devastating for the defender, if you consider a really rare situation where the attacker teleports Chaos Hydras inside the castle walls. Mass Forgetfulness is essential when fighting wandering monsters with ranged attack, in Medusa Stores and Cyclops Stockpiles. While expert Haste gives creatures +5 movement, the expert Prayer gives +4 and also boosts Attack and Defense.
Last but not least, attacking with a cloned unit not only does damage, but also removes the retaliation which a defending unit would have a chance at, which could be more important than the actual damage. Clone is also known for combining it with Archangels Resurrection ability. Additionally, Water Walk can not be ignored as a very powerful adventure spell (it will help a lot in Unholy Alliance campaign, namely in Barbarian Brothers scenario).
