That Guy That Plays DreamBlade


To wrap up the week, we have a piece that comes from many myths to bring fear to the dreamscape. Medusa is the first unique 7 drop for Dreamblade, sporting stats of 3 - 6/8. While not amazing, it can work just fine seeing as the stats are decent enough to last in the mid-game. Now along with being unique, she brings forth a very powerful double blade ability. Reflecting her power from Greek mythology, her Petrify ability can turn opposing pieces to stone! Well not really, but it forces your opponent to choose on of their local pieces to kill. While I am not sure if deathblows occur from the use of this effect, it can provide very useful when paired up with strong enemies that would be to hard to kill with only damage. The problem is, how do you generate 2 blades off 3 dice. On average, the chances on this are slim to none. However, when comboed with other big rollers, this guy can choose to kill almost any opposing character at will. Using Lure and Expel abilities, I don't see it being to hard to bring in a single character to Petrify. This guy in my eyes could be seeing play in a Passion/Fear control band.

Constructed - 3.5/5 - While not having seen this piece in action, the ability seems pretty good, and at least worth testing over the Scarecrow or a Gothic.
Sealed - 2.5/5 - Not as good here, but still a decent body. You do tend to focus more on grouping allies for big attacks here, but this pushes your chances of winning more on the amount of blades you have.
Artwork - 3.5/5 - That snake body is pretty cool....
