The Assassins

This scenario seems hard, and for many it is hard, but it can be won very simply, and in under four minutes, if it’s approached correctly. Remember, you’re behaving as an assassin, using the stealth of your craft to finish the job. 
Begin by following the river to the South, leading the way with your Swordsmen. Attack the Lions with your Bowman first at a distance, and close for the kill with the Swordsmen, you’ll take the least amount of damage that way. 
Cross the river at the first shallows and hug the riverbank as you turn back North, ignoring any enemy units or Towers. Don’t fire at anything, just slip by. Keep moving North and you’ll come upon one of the Blind Lame Priests, the second is far across the map to the Western edge. Move any wounded units directly in front of him and he can be directed to heal them, he cannot find them on his own and can’t move, blind and lame you see. 
When you’re back to full strength, follow the riverbank North again to the Dock. Turn inland to the top of the small bluff, your enemy is directly below you. Use your Bowman to attack him, and you may kill him before he ever gets close to you, otherwise, attack with all the rest of your units as he nears. When he’s dead, you win.
