The Comment You're Replying To

I took into account that the wall is not obliged to reduce your spirits to zero health. One idiotic piece can move around behind the wall to waste turns. But I assumed that it is illegal to fight your own pieces to gain zero health spirits. Then you need a position adjacent to three wall spirits to break through. Invade with zero health spirit and kill (fight) one wall spirit. Then the wall must be repaired, so your spirit can't be killed. Then self-distruct to kill the other two spirits. The resummoned spirit can never be killed directly. That'll leave one hole and you can damage the wizard. If there is no spot adjacent to three wall spirits, you need to use self-distruct to instantly gain two zero health spirits adjacent to the wall. Anyway, it must be legal to fight your own pieces to gain zero-health spirits.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:
