Healing (Spells or abilities that let you recharge other cards out of your discard pile) will help cover a lot of early mistakes. You don't need to bite the bullet and take a pure support character if noone wants to, there are loads of hybrid chars who have spell slots for a Cure, or items slots for early potion of healings you may find.
I think the titles of her two new role cards are switched. The Blade has an ability to absorb combat damage for someone else, which sounds more like a sentry. The Sentry listed has an ability to boost her check against a demon, which sounds more offensive. Though it has the movement ability as well, which could be both offense or defense.
So who's next on the preview block? Looking forward to Adowyn or Crowe.
Sigh. I'm guessing Organized play will be pushed back to accommodate. School starts back up for me next week so I guess no more thinking I'd have it to mess around with before then.
