A very nice sculpt, easily the best Centaur and one of my favourites overall.

He certainly isn't bad for a ranged 6/7 mobile 2 movement hero. No complaints about 2 AoW cards. His primary power is not that impresssive but may come in handy every now and then. His other ability is a bit more useful (and definitely more often): whenever Chiron is activated, draw an extra card plus every player gets an AoW card from their discard pile.
Must say that I find him intrigueing. Compared to your opponent(s) you still get an extra card per activation. If you think you need AoW cards more than they do it's even better.

If one way or another you can keep him alive until the later stages of the game he may be a very valuable asset. Keeping him alive becomes easier as more units disappear from the board, don't need AoW cards anymore - and their activation cards can be used as AoW cards.

Good, but not exceptional.

His second ability might actually create some mind games.

If you deploy him early and have art of war cards in your discard pile before anyone else does, other players get nothing from that ability.
On the other hand players might be quick to use them in hopes of getting them back soon because you have Chiron. And you could keep them waiting.

That immortality will be incredibly usefull when Eurytheus is linked to him since Eurytheus would be invincible as long as Chiron lives.

That... Is extremely devious! I love it!

Chiron may be useful when facing an opponent that makes you discard/use AoW a lot, to recover some of your wasted cards. On the other hand, you're allowing your opponent to also regain some cards too.

I any case, drawing more and regaining AoW is a great way to add to the flexibility of your army. In a way, he plays a similar role to Odysseus but is less troop-focused.
