The Barricade is a fairly simple low-cost structure used to deter enemies. Quickly hammered together on the battlefield directly in the path of any advancing creatures, it will slow them down a significant amount.
Because it is a structure, it will stay planted in one position and do damage only to creatures who attempt to cross it. Strong creatures can easily demolish them, but smaller creatures can struggle, possibly shifting the tide of battle.
