Even if 2 units assault him. I had a guy try to tell me since I fell back. When his first unit assaulted his 2nd unit could lock me into combat. That might be true. Wait until he finishes ALL his assault moves THEN misdirect. However if you misdirected too early, technically I'd believe him as you can't misdirect twice...so be wary.

The deceiver can NEVER be assaulted, and can ESCAPE combat the following enemy round too. He's a beast!!! And while he's tied up in CC during the opponents shooting he can't be shot, then misdirect out and get a free move in his turn, then move your normal movement....
