That Guy That Plays DreamBlade


Welcome back. Still going through with some rares from the latest set. Today is Slaughtwheel, which in my opinion, is another one of those archtypal based creatures, sorta like Carrion Spiker, that does its best in a warband that supports multiple copies of it. It has a solid body for a Madness piece, with 5 - 5/13 I believe on it as a 9 drop. Its ability makes it a gem though. Deathrip allows you to use any single blade abilities on creatures in your grave as one of his. Thing is, the ability absorbed only lasts for the phase. Wait..so how does that make him archtypal? Key word there was combat, and in case your brain isn't ticking, it means that it can absorb more abilities if there is a way to use it in mulitple combats during the same phase. Well, maybe I should run it with Valor then. Think again, why not just get the Valor pieces you want in the graveyard and then pop him out. Brilliant. Abilities like Skirmish Self (Munjina) and Skirmish 2 (Knight of Strife and Joy) will keep it buncing around with some of your other guys in order to generate enugh blades. Of course, not always guarenteed a certain amount of blades. He works well with his other Stitched friends, like Equitar and Butcher. The cool thing is that you can splash any piece with an ability you want, dump it with Butcher, and then use it with Wheel. Maybe try World Eater's Crit2&Trample, or Valkryie Moonrider's Cleanse. The possibilities are endless...well to a degree.

Constructed -4/5- It could be one of the best madness pieces out there not. I think people will definitly improve upon an idea of abusing him in future sets.

Sealed -2/5- Only got one single blade ability in my sealed pulls at the Prerelease. It really depends on your pieces, but he's still a decent body if you get him out early.

Artwork -3/5- Wheel of Misfortune...oh I am soo corny
