While any combat is optional, they do have two actions in combat - not different from e.g. the Stormwalkers or the Bat.

As I recall these discussions with Stephen, the MgF is used for a spirit magic attack if the Range factor is not underlined, and for a physical magic attack (against the CF of the opponents) if it is.

The Great Spirits use their agents (as soon as they are captured) in the Physical Magic phase, in whatever combat mode the agent has (chaotic for disease, attack vs. MgF for MgF only agents, attack vs. CF using physical magic terrain modifiers for CF only agents). This feels strange, but that's what Stephen told me.
