Are attacks that happen without rolling a die (i.e. tacticians) considered basic attacks? Thanks!

Indeed, Tacticians' Auto-hit is considered a Basic Attack. There may Alt Attacks that don't require rolling. All Attacks fall into the category of a Basic Attack or an Alt Attack (Specials, Innates and Abilities aren't considered attacks though they may cause damage).

.. and if the tactician's "1 Hit - No Roll" is a basic Attack (I had figured that part)... what if another tactician is giving it Strategic Attack.

a) tactician says NO ROLL. It doesn't take the extra die given to it by the other tactician. (my call)

b) you do a 1-hit automatic + roll the die given to it by the Strategic Attack Innate.

Thanks!

Thanks!

b) you get to roll a yellow and possibly add another damage.

Also when playing solo tactician's can hit for two with some champions abilities like ("Kings Rally" all friendly units gain +1 dmg on a successful Basic Atk)

This is an easy one to forget
