Oddly enough, this week seems to be a reflection
of my first pieces in each set; my first Base
Set piece was the Book of Nothing (Tuesday’s
review), and today’s Chrysotic Plague rare was
my first CP rare. All it was lacking was a
Fleshworm Broodsire review, and the list of my
“firsts” would be completed =P
Fine, that said, today’s piece is a Madness
piece, and we all know what that means. You
either get a creature with poor stats for its
cost or good stats for its cost, but with a
significant drawback. Today’s piece fits the
latter category. So, it’s a 7M for a 5 5/10. Not
bad isn’t it! Oh but wait; Multiblade Wound Self
5. So, roll one blade and you’ve just disrupted
yourself, roll two and you’ve just killed
You’d think you can use this, but you just need
a place to channel your blades, something
like….oh, I don’t know….. a Book of Nothing? But
think again – 7M also gives you Ouroboros. Now,
Ouroboros is not often used since its effect is
very often a drawback. However, it CAN be an
advantage. For example, you can use it to save
your Doomball(s). You could also use it to
banish a vulnerable ally, denying your opponent
of conquest points he would have gotten from
killing it. Situational, but at least theres a
positive side to it, unlike Wound Self.
But, wait, there’s more! Ouroboros has BETTER
STATS THAN THE CLOWN. 2 extra points of life, to
be exact. So, seeing that the clown is a big
flop even in Madness, there isn’t much of a
reason to compare it to other aspects, is there?
Well, just for fun, I would like to mention that
Carrion Spiker has the same cost as the clown.
Sure, it is a later drop, but it also has 2
extra defense, potentially 15 attack (17 once
Anvilborn comes out due to Omen Locusts), and
doesn’t kill itself.
What does this leave us with?
Constructed: 1/5. Don’t. Use. It. Unless you
like clowns. With chainsaws.
Limited: 3/5. Oh surprise surprise. This piece
is actually playable in limited, because as far
as its stats go, its actually good for its cost.
If you have a place to throw your blades into
that’s great. If not, its still 5 attack for 7M.
Art: 4/5. I have nothing against clowns, so in
all fairness, I think the sculpt looks suitably
disturbing for those who fear clowns.
