That Guy That Plays DreamBlade

BOGILLIAN

Today, I am sad. We might most likely have the worst piece the game has to offer. Mainly because his effect is nothing short of useless 98% of the time. Ok first off, he has close to the same stats of Malborn Croc, which no one uses. And even Croc has more life. The only thing Bogillian has in his defense is Slip, which only works if he is at the END of a ROW, NOT a COLLUMN. So for 0 spawn points, he can move from the 1 collumn to the 5 collumn. How could this be good? He basically just plays leap-frog the whole time and doesn't do anything about scoring or battling. Maybe I'm missing something...

Constructed - 1/5 - Don't use it if you can afford it. Malborn Croc > Bogillian
Sealed - 1.5/5 - Stupid things happen..he might have some use. Nevermind
Artwork - .5/5 - I'm leaving now, have a good weekend

Bogillian

Ladies and gentleman, I present to you a memorial to one of the greatest heroes of our time: Swamp Thing.

I remember back when I was a kid, Swamp Thing was one of the coolest out there. He had a cartoon show, and he had all sorts of awesome toys. He went head to head with G.I. Joe, TMNT, Biker Mice From Mars, Power Rangers, Captain Planet, and all the other iconic kid shows of the early 90's.

And got his butt WHUPPED. *cries*

Apparently, WotC decided Swamp Thing needed a better send off than he got, and made a nifty li'l Madness piece to commemorate his awesomeness.

Slimey here has some good stats, coming in at 4 5|12 for 8MM, though he does have solid competition in the form of Fleshworm Broodsire who beats it on power but loses in Defense and Life. He also has to fight Chrysalis Spinner and Malborn Croc, but generally, people will only be using those if they can't GET a Broodsire.

However, truth be told, Bogillian is not a combat piece. He's a movement piece in the vein of Scarab Warcharm or Angel of Sunrise... and while he does take a slightly different tack to it, he is dang good at what he does.

You see, Bogillian will be spawned in your portal. Q. Where is your portal on a dreamscape? A. At the end of a row. Q. What is Bogillians ability? A. You can pay 0 spawn points to shift him from one end of a row to another. For those of you whose brains are not quite functioning up to par, that means you just opened up a VERY nice spot on your spawn row very, very early on. Instead of wasting time shifting and shifting and shifting trying to get across the board, your creatures will already be within striking distance of some very valuable 'scape upon being spawned, taking, at a guess, two or even three turns fewer to get where they really want to go. And once you have a striking team set up... Bogillian is actually more than capable of fighting alongside the other beaters you'll have, whatever those may be depending on your band's make up.

Bogillian may not be an answer to Unsated Ragedrake or counter Angel of Sunrise, and no, he really isn't as good as Cyclopean Sprite... but let's face it, few things are. I am of the opinion that if Bogillian is ignored for the time being, he won't be for too long, not after people realize the tactical options he can open up in half the time it would usually take with more orthodox methods. Prove me wrong, I dare you.

Constructed: 3.5/5 He'll be hanging back for a bit after you spawn him, but once you're ready, my god, will you be ready.
Limited: 3.5/5 His trick is still just as obvious, and still just as useful. So long you manage to snatch some other Madness figs to help with the aspect cost, you'll be fine with this dude.

Bogillian

and today, we have an most-excelent common from Madness, the Bogillian.
First, the breakdown:
8MM, 4 power, defence 5, life 12.
basically a worse version of Malborn Croc....untill you see his
most-excelent effect: spawn phase zero Slip. I LOVE this effect. at first i thought it was useless, but then i thought about it. summon him early, slip him to the other side of the spawn row, and then you have a easier time cause' you can just spawn critters in his row. or move him up early to your scoring 3-cell, place an arch, slip to the 5-scoring cell, place another arch. Use bogillian to mess with your opponent useing slip some more. then laugh meniacly *whahahaha!* repeat :-)

limited: 4.5/5
constructed: 5/5 *a GREAT 8 drop :-)*
sculpt: 5/5 *its an awsome looking marsh-creature-from-the-black-lagoon
monster.
i <3 it*
