Right, but they have to actually lose all of them.

My initial reaction is "Yeesh. Because, y'know, the world needed another reason not to play Shin'hare."

But they still get the effects

So stormlings still get to do their thing, but it wipes out all their low cost inspire guys, CMK and other wimps with great effects, WITHOUT triggering card draw thanks to the void. It also bypasses recursion and Blessing the Fallen. Seems nice to me! :)

Besides, it's opposing troops, so you can sac a battle hopper to wipe a good portion of the opponent's board (to hit more targets, Sorrow first!).

Pairs well with XI with brutality gem, too.

Oh it is definitely going to see sideboard play, but i dont think it has a spot in main deck

Easily 2of in reserves, maybe 2of mainboard in an aggro meta to wipe out those early plays. Heatwave is objectively better in most situations, but this counters Gorefeast as it works currently, and quite well at that.

Not a great fan, but more mileage paired something like with Sorrow.
Hopefully this is the closest set 3 gets to Extinction! :)

I imagine so, since we already saw the set 3 version of Judgement (and it is a good deal more powerful, even if more restrictive by a bit.) Makes me wonder if there will also be a heatwave and Yesterday mirror? And lets ignore Wild's board wipe, they never had one... ;)

I think this sees main deck play I like it because it voids and there are already credible ways to reduce opposing troop attack thus with xenoths seems legit to me.

Not a board wipe vs Shin'hare, although seriously scary!

Still weird using 2014 MTG development balance on single target removal but '90's on sweepers.

Poor rabbit swarms. Never stood a chance.

I feel like we've seen a lot of Set3 cards now... surely it's time to let us play with 'em ;)

In all seriousness, do we have any official stats on the number of cards in Set 3 etc? Is it the same as Set 2?

All we need now is a good combo card that lowers all attack of opposing troops. other than sorrow.

Yeep.

Imagine if there was some kind of anti-inspire troop that you had in play that affected their troops when they enter play. Something like "when an opposing troop with cost greater or equal to this enters play, lower that troop's attack by 1".

Zombie Plague kinda does that.

Which I played with much success this VIP weekend.

Ah yeah, this is true. I was trying to think of a similar card.

Still, anti-inspire, or uninspire perhaps, based off of cost would be kinda cool.

Now we know that if the Shroomkim ever rebel against the Shin'hare it's going to be a gloriously one-sided fight. It's hard to counter when you each of members of the opposing side is a walking biological weapon.

Perhaps the shin'hare merely think they are the masters and the shroomkins are the slaves. Or perhaps the shroomkins are just happy to have so much biological material to decompose and reproduce in. Ultimate keyzer soze.

So gonna use that with xentoths inquisitor etc

Mahes
06-01-2015, 07:40 PM
Yeah this card is good and possibly really good. Zombie, Xentoth, sorrow and I am sure there will be others that can complement it.

Also and perhaps a little more important, it does a lot against spiders.
