Lizardfolk is the evil spy race which is good at fast attacking and exploring. Being a spy race (having military units that count as part-spies) is helpful in that almost no one will try to steal your platinum and most dominions will have difficulties obtaining spy ops on you. Their elite OP unit is quite inexpensive, efficient, has no ore cost, and does not need boats, all of which make them a prime attacking race; however, their inefficient DP makes speed a necessity. The Chameleons are almost always accompanied by Reptiles to reduce the DP spendings.
