The Black Citadel is the pinnacle of necromantic skill. It allows the best units and most powerful spells for Scourge armies. It is the focal point of an Undead base, and is one of two Undead town halls to have a super tower attack. Like the Halls of the Dead, its HUGE number of HP and good armour, makes it a formidable defence for a main base, but its extended build time and resource requirement makes it unpopular for expansions. The only building it allows is the Boneyard, and powerful though it is, is often only used for the advanced spells for Necromancers and Banshees, or to get the loathed Abomination.
