He is hard to hit so might make for a pretty good meatshield at 1hp. And while the enemy wastes their activations on trying to kill this omphalos runner, you can spend yours on dealing some good damage.

Unless of course the enemy uses Autolycus to steal those omphalos from Icarus. Then he's useless.

And it will be pretty hillarious when flying too close past Apollo or Helios to snatch an omphalos ends in his death. Flying too close to the sun god. (it really does not seem clear which of them is the sun god, both seem to be linked to that position)

Icarus can't be harmed by melee attacks, so he can be used to distract your enemy's more powerful ranged/flying units. His main purpose though is clearly to run and grab an omphalos, and he's damn well equiped for that purpose. He costs as much as a troop, and does a better job than all of them at evading enemy fire. The problem comes with not being able to fight back and once he's dead, he's dead.

Zeus might just zap him out of the sky when he is about to deliver the omphalos to his god though, dealing some good damage to others as well.

I wouldn't recommend using Icarus when the other player has Zeus.

I think that can be said about any weak unit. Just don't get too cocky and it shouldn't be a problem. Plus, if you can get your opponent to waste 2 AoW just to kill a 1RP unit, that's apretty good tradeoff!

It's an area attack though that would kill two birds with one stone. Well maybe just Icarus and not the god who he delivers the omphalos to, but it would be able to deal some good damage. Might be a defender of the god in the area too.

Seems like a good tactic at least to time an area attack like that to damage Icarus without wasting attacks since then you'd be dealing damage to others too.

Agreed. It's probably a good idea then to keep Icarus away from your other units if your enemy has aoe attacks, and bring him to your god when it's safer.

Indeed, which is all part of the fun. Really adds a nice tactical layer to him.
