An absolute monster of a G-Unit. Combined with Steeped in Sin Scharhrot and Baleful Repressor, you have what is a near unblockable force. 13 Soul is easy as long as you have a good supply of Demonted, Jealousy Succubus and can constantly use a Stride skill. The first skill is just unnecessary but a bonus is a bonus. It’s a straight +2 to you and kills off a problem card, and that’s not even taking soft advantage into account assuming the opponent won’t PG this first time ’round. Not that they can if this is your second Stride.

If you haven’t got Dust live, this is an excellent and cheap alternative. A 4-of.



What’s up, Rogue Squad?!  To wrap up our Dark Irregulars week, we’re looking at what replaced Gilles de Rais, and as good as that card was in its prime, the question becomes how exactly can you top that?  It’s simple actually: you give all of your attacks a pseudo-Gilles de Rais skill before including any other skills that would proct.  13 Soul is really damn easy to do now thanks to the likes of Succubus of Jealousy, Demented Executioner, Monochrome and any Scharhrot skill, and if you can’t get to 13 after all of that, then you still have Balaam’s first skill, which kills and absorbs an opponent’s rear-guard and lets you Soul Charge 2 for each card face up in your G Deck, so that should all but guarantee you to 13 when added up.  To conclude, if you’re playing Dark Irregulars, whether Scharhrot, Blade Wings, Amon’s or even Nightmareland, you run 4 of these.
