That Guy That Plays DreamBlade


Continuing 10k Superstars week, we have a 4 drop rare to compete with Scarab. Is it better? Not really, but it can still be powerful in the right warband. She's a 2-5/6, which is ok in some books. but then again, it's double aspect makes it harder to play early on. Now it has a pretty useful effect that has seen use in almost every Aggro warbands during the 10k. It can gain Enrage 1 by paying a spawn point, which then gives everyone around it and adjacent to it an extra +1 power. In Aggro (which for those unfamiliar with the term, refers to swarming + alot of strength), this guy can easily add 2-3 extra dice in to multiple attacks without actually being in the attack. Thing is, she doesn't get the chance to gain an effect if a 1 is rolled, and she becomes a pretty understated piece. Still, the benefits of her effect more than make up for that, and it has shown with mild sucess over the past few weeks.

Constructed - 3.5/5 - It can be good in multiples, but it takes skill to position it correctly and move it around, and luck in the sense that no ones come around.

Sealed - 2.5/5 - She's not a piece you want to play if you can't get rid of her aspect cost early on. In a band with alot of low cost minis, she can do fine.

Artwork - 1.5/5 - Kitsune's cousin, the Horse Lady.



Virtuous Maiden

The reason this lovely lady was included in 3s in many warbands at Gen Con should be immediately apparent to anyone with half a brain.

Firstly, at 4VV, 2 5|6 is actually pretty dang good. For a low cost creature, she's right at the curve. Add in her one Spawn Point ability and... yeah, we're looking at 5/5 material here folks.

For those of you who haven't heard of her, for a mere one spawn point, you get to give all local and adjacent allies one more power. That may not sound like much, but a 4VV with 3 power is good, as is any number of weenies that are suddenly one heck of a lot better. A lot of Valor creatures would be soooo good with just one more point of power, and that's exactly what this chick does. Hawk-Eyed Instigator and Raging Vanguard are now 5, Lunar Handmaiden, 4, Angel of Sunrise, 6, Kitsune, 5, and Virtuous Maiden herself, 3. We are talking a major advantage when it comes time to smash face, people, and it's at a pretty cheap price too. Somebody at Wizards is on crack, I'm sure of it.

There really is no way to screw up with Virtuous Maiden. She is a simple, easy, quite simply perfect piece, right up there with Scarab Warcharm and Baxar the Soulstitcher. If you aren't getting the message, quit Deamblade NOW.

Constructed: 5/5
Limited: 5/5

I really shouldn't have to explain why any further.
