Oh, sure, that's fine. Limitations can drop a trait down to a minimum of 20% it's base cost; Affliction could go as cheap as [2] per level, but Warp (normally [100]) could only be limited to a minimum of [20]. And yes, a beneficial Affliction can potentially be cheaper than the advantage it's afflicting. The limitations placed on it to get it so low prevent it from being a point crock.
ROFLMAO! Cool Beans! Thanks guys, that's the last piece of the puzzle I needed. I really appreciate the answers (and so will my cleric player characters when they see all the neat abilities they can choose!).

And you could create some alternative auras.

Exactly. So the the Striking ST +2 aura works out to 20 or so; add Malediction so they can waive the save, now you're at 30.

Suppose you have the Rapid Healing aura, that's 5 cheaper, or base costs 25, but divide by 5 as an Alternate Attack (for Affliction counts as an attack). Net cost 5 for this additional aura. You might easily have a few more at this drastically reduced rate.

First turn, buff Striking ST. It lasts for at least a minute (reducing the duration might be a way to drop the cost). Next turn, as a free action, switch to Hard to Kill, and emanate that aura as your maneuver. Next turn, rinse and repeat with the next buff in your arsenal. Potent.
