Flavor Text: " It's amazing how many household items
you can hit a pirate over the head with.”
If you’re a player who likes to have lots and lots
of allies on your side, this card is a must,
basically because it pumps you up to a 6 force when
you have more than your opponent. Since you’ve also
probably got pumpers as allies, you could be looking
at a 7 by the time all is said and done, and a lot
of the time a 7 force scores you a point. Still,
this card has a bulk energy cost of 3, which is
really high for it’s basic stats. But in a deck that
relies on allies, you must play this 4x
Playability 3 of 5
Collectability 2 of 5
Next week: Got me by the garbanzos.
Knockout is a solid Bull strike. It doesn’t punish
low Force like some of the best Bull strikes do, but
it has a pretty fun power. It is definitely a card
to build a deck around. The Intercept is pretty low,
but if you build your deck right with cheap allies
and good ally removal, it can be an efficient strike
indeed. Imagine a 5/6 for 3 non-red energy. Hooray!
