Mare the Dark Spirit:

Mythical spirit which is believed to bring bad dreams to those who haven't slept for days. And so the word "nightmare" was born. Some say that Mare rides on the dreamers chest to bring unimaginable nightmares and some say they saw strange puppets appearing near their houses. Everyone who had nightmares with Mare went insane. Paranoia, fear and reappearing images of terror, all victims suffered from this.

Mare is an intelligence ranged hero.
Mare brings all sorts of terror on the battlefield. From isolating one ally from another, through making enemies go through the suffering or even worse punishment, to making the battlefield literally her playground. Mare can always become ones worst nightmare.

Ones most beautiful dream and others worst nightmare
2 Puppet charges |25| +1s Insanity Silence

+40 Puppet Movement Speed |15| +125 Cast Range

175 AoE Solitude |10| +30% XP Gain
Mare is an offensive support/roamer but can be great situational mid-laner. Her offensive ability Insanity can be choice between life and death for the enemy and her passive ability Umbral Phoenomenon can be pretty deadly if taken lightly. Solitude is Mares startegic ability which takes away enemies most dependable tool - vision. And Mares Ultimate ability Puppet can be used as one of the most universal ability in the game. From spawning it into Chain Frosted enemy to Tethering away from the foes. Options are limitless. But if none of these options are possible, then at least Mare will benefit, because thanks to the Puppet her abilities will in fact become global.

I gotta say this but basically this is Depression in hero form.....I like the core concept and stuff I think the numbers are justified but the R is the one I have an issue I think only one of the puppets(ally or enemy) should inherit the passive ability of Global Cast Range and having it both as an Ahgs upgrade or talent just because global cast range is just annoying, I mean HAVE YOU SEEN THE CHAOS OF AN E-BLADE DAGON COMBO? so yeah that's my only suggestion

I can change the ultimate a bit so that maybe only Puppet Enemy would have the passive if that is the only problem you have with her :D

Is Solitude supposed to last for 3/4/4/6 or 3/4/5/6? I see no reason for the former.

I am very confused with the R. It seems to me that it should be just one ability; the Ally doesn't seem to do anything, while the enemy's stats (I assume) are assumed to be the same as the allies'. There is also no reason to call one an ally and one an enemy when both are non-aggressive allies to Mare. Also, do the puppets have a duration?
The global casting is not rediculous either as you have to summon the puppet and have it follow your victim. Though you should further clarify whether items get the global range.

I would say this hero's biggest weakness is its grammar and the lore. It isn't even clear whether Mare is a mare. Other than that, amazing concept.
