Is “Aerial Strike” (Hawk champion of the cloaks) considered an attack? I of course think it is, but, on IOS, Hawk used his power to kill one of my Cultists ( FK) and “Death Curse” was not triggered (After this cultist is destroyed by an attack from an enemy unit a die is rolled...”

The cultist was destroyed by aerial strike but the die was not rolled... is this a bug?

Cheers.

I don't believe it's an attack for the following reasons:
- It's not in the attack phase.
- It doesn't say 'attack' in the wording (eg. You may attack)

If it were classed as an attack, abilities such as Trample would be treated as such.

Dezza is right. Summoner Wars uses very technical wording so you have to pay attention to the literal words like that.

Anything that is not an actual "Attack" does not trigger it. This includes "instead of attacking" like Elien's Fire Blast.

Attacks are a very specific thing, powers that do damage outside of the actual attack are not considered attacks (even though this specific example thematicly does seem like it should be an attack).
