Shards of Fate introduced us to the robot-crafting, cavern-digging, explosion-loving Dwarves, and while they may have been a collection of mad tinkerers that believe in destruction for destructionís sake, there was still a touch of whimsy to their style. It was hard to not be charmed by the sight of a bunch of adorable little worker bots scrambling about, assembling an Ingenuity Engine or some other wacky contraption.

This card looks legit with Elimination Specialist, among others.

guess the week delay is affecting the speed of spoilers. two days in a row and only one card spoiled in article

Exactly - it's not like the old schedule was going to work. :p

I know every set needs cards like this, but man this is bad in constructed, probably great in limited.

Like, it's a card that relies specifically on synergies, but the payoff isn't even that high! Spending your fourth turn on a card that has no immediate impact on the board, and it's synergies mean you have to build the deck around it and include sub optimal cards to leverage it. Like, compare this card to Archmage Wrenlocke! It's not even close.

I think there is going to be a very strong deck in set 2 built around dwarves & robots (maybe even several) , but this card just does nothing. If I'm playing cards like Elimination Specialist or Bombsmith in my constructed deck just because of the interaction, then I'm playing bad cards to make another bad one mediocre. If you put this ability on a more aggressively costed NON-UNIQUE troop so you could build a combo with it, you could leverage the strength of it enough where it'd become good, but we don't even get that.

Or the other dwarves have already been spoiled? Check out the Tunnelling article - lots of Shattered Fate dwarves have that Keyword.

I was actually expecting an article about the upcoming VIP tournaments, confirming times, etc. Shouldn't the tickets drop some time today?

In client I am seeing VIP Constructed 819-2 slated for tomorrow 6 p.m. Is that GMT or actually my time (that would be... ouch)?

I am almost positive that all times are based off your PC time. So yes, I believe it is 6pm your time tomorrow.

Wow... I love this card!

His art's like the grandaddy of war machinists :)

T1 Machinist
T2 Malfunctioning Warbot
T3 Machinist
T4 Samson + Bertram's bot

Damage could add up pretty quickly after that. Geez.. 1 turreted wall will be pinging for 2 now. And the set up in Constructed I think will be a passive board state on which all the current removal except Extinction will work. Should be a super fun deck to build and tweak.

Not to mention a 4 damage Volcannon? That is vicious.
