You might think that at a glance, but if you really think about it, even magic mirror is pretty incredible, its just a little over shadowed because of Image Reflection so many players never even use it and still reap the ridiculous rewards of Aegis, but the smart players use both abilities and find themselves with an advantage no level 2, heck, maybe not even a level 3 card should ever have!.
Consider Flying attack, for 1sp it lets some units with not all that dissimilar stats smack a unit of their choice for usually 20-30 damage right? Magic Mirror also lets you choose a target, so just like flying attack it gives you range ignoring pinpoint. Then most units your likely to go after are 40-60 hp so your also doing 20-30 damage. In that respect its like having flying attack in addition to decent stats and image reflection. BUT its actually better because of the fact it ignores defense, so Dryad buffed Blitz soldiers still go down in 2 hits instead of 3. THEN in the situations where your opponent is using something big, it gets better still, it does 35 to devouring lizard and Folrart Guardian (more if their hp has been further buffed and of course ignoring their defense buffs). It does 45 to Zu, 55 to Water dragon, 60 to Allind! Holy dragon takes 48 or so inspite of both his defense and his attack reducing ability.
Magic Mirror on its own wouldn't make Aegis great, heck he probably wouldn't see play if that was all he had, but it IS a powerful tool that can take an already over powered unit and make it obscenely over powered so it is worth noting that he has it and making Image Reflection an action skill would at least some what reduce the ridiculousness that is Aegis.
Perhaps though a better option instead of making Image Reflection an action skill is to make it cost 1sp but leave it an auto skill. The by-turn sp drain would definitely be enough of downside to justify 2 such powerful skills and all that speed with average hp.
And for anyone who thinks 30 hp is low, remember, its a level 2. 30 hp is low for a level 3 or higher, but for a level 2 thats actually about as average as it gets. Whether or not a stat is high or low is relative to its level, not other cards in the game. If we're going to ignore level I could argue every other card in the game has low hp because of the existence of Allind for instance. But Allind has that much HP because he's a level 9.
The bunnies of Lavato have special abilities, like 'Action Skill: Make Carrot Disappear.'
