Scarab Warcharm

5/5 nuff said nub.

Alright, alright, you guys do deserve a bit more than that, I guess. Still, Warcharm is the single best piece in the game so far. While he may not retain that title come Baxar's War, I find it HIGHLY unlikely that he won't still see considerable amounts of play. This guy basically made Chessmaster what it is, fer crying out loud.

4V is relatively cheap, which is good. So the stats of 6|7 D&L are actually pretty nice, though I admit, 2 power IS a teensy bit on the low side. However, Warcharm is NOT a true combat piece, but rather a backup piece that just teams up with a couple other decent sized critters and uses their blades to move everybody around the board.

And that's what's so great. Dreamblade isn't a game that's solely about smashing face. It's a game about smashing face AND getting into position to smash face or take cells, and while Scarab Warcharm can't do much face smashing, he's great at getting people to smash face. In case you haven't been checking out Rolf's wonderful little spoiler for some bizarre reason, Warcharm has MULTIBLADE advance and single blade skirmish. The only thing better than that would be if BOTH abilities were multiblade, but then the universe would collapse around such a piece of brokenness that it really wouldn't be fair to us mortals.

Constructed: 5/5 You got him you play him. You don't got him you GET him THEN you play him.
Limited: 5/5 Thass right, peeps, TWO 5/5s. That's how good this wiggy blue table thingy is.
