Its flying movement and good resistances make it a decent tool for quickly destroying newly appearing Dremer gates, especially with its Demolisher perk which does double damage to structures. Teleport ability has a limited range and a 3 turn cooldown however (plus it consumes 2 movement points), so it can be argued that increased Mobility perk is more valuable.
Land melee units have no counters against the Sky Gillion in most cases, which can fire upon them with impunity.
Counter this Eclipse-class vessel with magic, archers and special abilities - but care to finish it before it escapes away.
Armageddon mode: Remember, that unit does not heal itself automatically (+2 hp/turn) when located on your territory. But Dremer lands still hurts -4hp/turn. Spell "Elemental Regeneration" is something obligatory then.
Since Magic Pulse rejects damage bonuses, they are added to the regular attack of the unit twice. Add damage bonuses to this unit to strengthen its regular attack a lot. See Damage Calculation Guide for details.
