Scenario 2: He hits them and on impact plants his feet, sending them flying while he slides to a stop shortly after impact.
Also, if there is some degree of Ability Power in this attack, would it be that his shield is somehow generating power as he charges(i.e. magical power charge) that causes an explosion on impact, which would then make a bit more sense towards both of them being flung in opposite directions?
Yeah, there's been a lot of questions about how this works, though I like your idea of it. And to answer your question, while Cain's charging, it appears that he's covered in dark streaks. While his movements and actions are physical (excluding his ult), his true power is his magic.
Changed the description of how the ability works. Let me know if it makes a little more sense.
