We have a nice
little....plain.....boring as hell piece today.
Nothin' special 3/5/8 for 5. I can't really see
this making any real constructed warbands. Even
in limited you will hopefully have something
better, but at least he's an 8 to kill - that's

Woohoo, looks like we get ourselves an exclusive
piece for you anxious Dremabladers.
Unfortunately, this piece is a vanilla piece,
which like Loyal Scragglemaw, means there is no
tasty new effect to dive into. But here are the
stats: 5F 3-5/8. Now as we have seen from the
base set, Fear as a good share of 5 drops.
Acoylte of Loss is 2-6/8, Jack of Blades is
3-4/7, and Geentel Husk is 2-5/6. However, all
these base set pieces actually have effects.
I'll rank them for you guys to show you how they
rank in my book:
1) Jack of Blades
2) Geentel Husk
4) Acoylte of Loss
Basically, this piece has the power that Fear
needs, but for a little drop in stats, you get a
great ability in the form of Expel. In other
words, Jack of Blades is better. Geentel ranks
higher just because his effect is amazing.
Constructed - 1.5/5 - we have Jacky boy, so use
Sealed - 3.5/5 - this is where stats count, and
this seems fairly good for a 5-drop. We'll have
to see how the rest of the set turns out.
Artwork - 2/5 - looks like he delivers a bad

We get a special sneak peek exclusive preview
today from the soon-to-be-released Baxar's War
expansion. The Clawkiller is a middleweight from
Fear. As sneak peeks go, we probably could have
done a whole lot better, but hey, beggars can't
be choosers. There is not a lot to discuss here.
The Clawkiller is a straight-up mid-class
fighter with no special abilities. On balance he
is costed to match his skill scores. in trade of
for the lack of an ability he gets roughly one
extra point of Defense and Life. Compare him,
for example, to the Jack of Blades -- a 3 Power,
4/7 Defense/Life with a single blade Expel
ability for the same 5-drop cost. Not sure I
would take this guy over a Jack of Blades unless
I was really desperate to get a little more
staying power. I don't really see that as a
strong likelihood. All-in-all this guy is highly
average, which is probably exactly what he was
intended to be. The best thing about this guy is
the flavor text: "Don't wave back." Cute...
might make my top ten flavor text list. Let's
hope our next sneak peek gives us a little more
to talk about.
Sealed: 2.5/5 (A little better in Limited, as it
offers you a solid middleweight to fill-out your
Artwork 3/5 ("Awww, cute li'l guy..." SLASH! "Aaaaaaaagh!
It ripped my face off! Shoot it! SHOOT IT!)
