Hi guys!
I cant understand the final text of this card... I dont know...
"When purchased, you may make an additional buy and may destroy destroy 1 militia."
Means if you destroy one militia you can buy another card on the same turn you bought or leveled up the normal militia?
Thanks!

It allows you to purchase one more card and to destroy a militia. You may make another buy even if you didn't destroyed the militia.

Thanks Leo! (Valeu meu chará!)
I am very new on this game... I bought last week...
What is the point on freely destroy a militia on this case?
Just empty your deck to better cards?

Usually you want to destroy militia to make room for better cards. You would much rather draw almost any other hero than a militia.

A very common strategy in Thunderstone is to do some deck cleansing. This means getting rid of weak cards which you don't want to draw. The Militia is the weakest of all cards: It provides no Gold in the Village, Only provides +1 Attack and can't carry a decent weapon. Same goes to daggers and Iron Rations which won't be very useful very long as you get stronger heroes/weapons and cards with Gold value.

Many people will willingly rest many times early in the game to get rid of them ASAP, but whenever a card allows you to destroy Militias for free it'so often considered a better play. Not having some of the Militias in your hand early means you'll have more gold each hand to buy better heroes.
