This was the first Passion pieces
spoiled when Chrysotic Plague was
first introduced. It's this tiny,
transparent robot looking like he's
praying...Probably for better stats.
This guy is a 4 PP; 1 Power, 1
defense, 2 life.
This sounds a lot like Hammerhead
(3P, 3 power, 1 defense, 2life).
So why does he cost more?! Check
out the ability
Provoke — At the beginning
of the opponent's first action phase
this turn, if there are local
enemies, the opponent must strike
during that action phase.
This can change what the opponent is
going to do for the turn if you lose
initiative; forcing an attack
first. This DEFINATELY helps if the
Borg is the only thing the opponent
is engaged with. His stats are
pretty much guaranteed to ensure
that he'll be dying if he's
I haven't used this myself (as I'm
not a big fan of passion), going off
of the wording. If you have 1 cell
that has engaged enemies and you
have Angel of Sunrise and Borg
Penitent in the same cell. You use
Provoke, but are able to use
something like Zungar Standardbearer
or Pearlthorn Castle to get the Borg
out of there, they STILL have to go
after the Angel, whose stats ensure
she'll be pretty much sitting where
she's at. SWEET!
There is definate potential to the
Borg, but I think a part of why I
don't like him is cost/consequence
to get it to work. I believe if you
have the resources to be able to
shoot off PROVOKE and save the
Borg. You're probably already
So in that sense, he's a bit like
Genteel Husk: Won't help you in a
pinch, but he's there to help you
seal the deal. A 'win-better'
I'll give the little guy a 2 out of
5. Part of that score comes from me
not pulling him in sealed.
