Would highly suggest you only learn one form of magic, and everyone learn heals. Having different spells gives you too much randomness in your attack choices, and you'll need certain ones to trigger the really good combo synergys, which are you most powerful attacks.
Problem is you will need to get irina to learn heals, or put her with a leader who can heal, and nuke.
Hexes are good, but psionics are stronger, but you get them way later. Violet is a char who starts with heals and hexes I think. Nora can learn hexes, but I think it's better for her to just learn either hex or invocations, but not both.
If you can, only learn invocations (spark, windshear, etc) since blackout triggers off this. You only need 3 guys to make it trigger is why, vs 4 for the hex and evocation ones, and for fatal eclipse too.

To get the arcana hex skil you'l need 4 hex casters in the team, if its going to be a 4 man team then go with loki as you will need that healing he offers via herbs as normal soldiers who have hex skills won't have healling ones.
You might also consider Blocter who also gets Hexes and traps. plus he also has herbs. he's slow but he has a lot of hps and makes a good leader for a smaller team. He also seems to have the defend command when I use him in a 3 man team which works great for tanking.

Irina should be irina, hexer, invoker, evoker, healer. Pagus should be invoker, invoker, invoker.
If irina learns heals though, then you can do 4 man for her and 4 for pagus.
dunno how much you've messed with synergy attacks though, but they are hella strong.

While it's nice to do 15k flash arrow V to one target, it's alot better to do 65k-150k to all enemy unions you are currently engaged with. I just dont like evocations, because whiteout needs 4 casters vs 3 for blackout. I built my characters kinda stupidly lol, didnt figure out all this stuff till near the end. My combat arts were so weak, because I diversified way too much. My magic was hella strong though. Plus I didn't learn heals on some chars because I told them no lol.
Traps, wards, explosions, no thanks! next time around.
Do it right and you can get pagus to do blackout almost every round of every fight. I just don't know if killing all mobs with one shot makes your fighters weaker or not though. Sure speeds stuff up though, whenever you fight many unions at once, like the bases. It's something to bare in mind.

just make sure one casts invocs, one cast evocs, and one does hexes. To do fatal eclipse, irina has to cast at a psionic spell, and the other 3 casters have to cast any spell they know all together. Each guy will either cast or attack, same with irina, you just have to get lucky and have them all cast.
So irina doing confuse V
soldier 1 spark III
soldier 2 poison gas II
soldier 3 mystic missle IV
will trigger fatal eclipse.
