That Guy That Plays DreamBlade


Ok, welcome back to some new Dreamblade reviews. After getting my case of the newest set along with the Warcharm from the release tourney, I'm all set to dive right in to reviews. I managed to pull this Madness location from the case. Its a 5 drop with double aspect, which usually means you have to sport at least 6-7 madness pieces in your warband in order to not overpay for this. Madness already has a bomb location in the form of Darkheart Cottage, but depending on the build, this could be pretty nice. The ability is it makes the scoring cell its in gain 3 more conquest points. While this can benefit greatly in close games, it can help your opponent if not placed properly. Reason being is the 1-2-1 area is scoring area for both players, and it makes it a risky investment seeing this is an area that could go either way based on field presence and initiative. To be on the safe side, it is best to put it where they cannot benefit from it, being the 5-4-3 closest to the opposing spawn row. Now, this combos well with the 2 current Flux abilities. P. Gargoyle gains +3 to both defensive stats, while Freakazoid can reroll even more dice. However, being closer to the opposing spawn row makes it harder to protect seeing as your opponent can plant forces very close to it. Its a risky investment, but it can play off in a specific warband made to benefit from it.

Constructed - 2/5 - DHC is much better for pure Madness bands. I still see this becoming better in future sets.
Sealed - 1/5 - With many location hate abilities available in this set, and the fact that this doesn't improve your board much at all, I'd pass on it.
Artwork - 3/5 - very cool looking indeed.
