That Guy That Plays DreamBlade


Ok we saved a treat for today. Its Chyrsota herself. She basically makes Hiveling a playable warband type. Well her and Hiveling Overlord, but Chyrsota is more important. She is also unique, and because of her powerful abilities, is weak, and makes her a prime target. 3 - 5/7 is not cool for an 8 drop. However, aside from being unique, she has the first ever Channel ability, this time only dropping the cost of Hivelings by 1. This is very good, and makes alot of the pieces better for their cost. Aspects aside, it makes their three 3 drops into 2 drops, and makes all those 8 cost guys into 7 drops. You probably won't want to run anyone over an 8 drop so you can keep the swarm coming. Speaking of swarm, group attacks are a main part of swarming. That's where the Queen tips her hat off again in the form of Hiveling Frenzy. Basically, anytime there is a group with one or more Hiveling attacking, you can chose to reroll ALL the dice from that attack one more time. While this can sometimes be a gamble, the odds are if you roll horrible the first time, the second time will be alot better. So as simple as that, 2 great abilities on a fragile unique body. A very balanced piece that gives what appeared to be a weak lineage alot of power.

Constructed - 5/5 - She makes Hiveling possible. Run two, or maybe one and Chyrsalis Spinner from Core Set

Sealed - 3.5/5 - Although fragile, Frenzy works on her own attacks, and lowering the cost of any other Hivelings you picked up can make field presence for you more favorable.

Artwork - 4/5 - Cool art. Cooler Jello Body!
