Default Hidden in sand spell bugged?

Just curious, the "Hidden in Sand" spell costs 70 earth gems. For that, you get a dust lord that is hardly worth 7 gems. He's not even a mage. Further, the description says that he's some minions with him. However, there are no minions at all, except maybe some insects in his corpse. Actually, he looks pretty lonely when summoned, and I tried it two times. Did I miss something or is their something fishy with this spell?!

Description is fixed in next patch. Works only in wastes and works better if there are luck and magic scales.

I cast it with Luck3/Magic1 in waste, got a non-mage commander with about 25 troops (all of whom have heat aura), and a mage with something like F2E2D2.

Would be also good if the spell message would give a hint about what went wrong. Something like "couldn't find anything in this lands..." etc. So there's less confusion.

Better if it was grayed out in non wastes. But since I was the creator of the spell, and my programming skills are limited, there is no such function.
