It is the conditionals which lower the value of this piece. Both Bison and Knight have unrestricted movement.

Simply include potential conditionals and the value of a piece will drop.

This is probably why it is valued at near half of the Bison.

Of course, any evaluation is totally dependent upon the parameters considered. Zillions should never be considered the final arbitrator of piece value.
