I don't think she would.
Wanda has always been rather cold/practical/etc in her dealings, but she hasn't been shown as treating the decrypted better then she would treat the uncroaked - tools for her to use until they can't be used anymore.
Ansom, as a decrypted, treats the experiance like something religious almost. A conversion. Wanda doesn't have that mind set though, she thinks nothing of coldly dispatching and decrypting Oss in a way that provides the most benifit in the quickest amount of time.
Turning Jillian into a decrypted? A unit that must (it seems) serve unquestioningly and love Wanda? I can't see it appealing to her.

The airforce alone, while powerful, might not be enough to take on a "massive" column of infantry and heavies. Just because Ossomer did not mention anything else, does not mean the column does not also have Warlords or fliers. Remember, Ansom can only bring his infantry against the army across the bridge, and that stack even without Ossomer is still quite formidable.
True. And I think any force described like that would have Warlords by the truckload (and as we know now it is Haggar forces, so Haggar's chief warlord could be in command).

But is that too far even for Wanda? I mean a bit of thinkamancy is one thing, but turning Jillian into someone compelled to love and serve Wanda... and we don't really know what Wanda feels about decrypted (as I mentioned above) - she hasn't shown them much consideration. Charlie seems to care more about his Archons - would Wanda think a decrypted Jillian is still her
I don't think Wanda views the whole toolism and decryption process in the same light as Ansom does.

Although through loyalty contortions it could be said she didn't think Faq would end up like it did.
And so my time with the Tardy Elves draws to a close, and I am let to ponder how the experience will... eh, I'll finish later. No need to rush.
