doc We finish out our third week of reviews of the 20 new cards affectionately known as the Artist Series with the Rare Warlord Character Bladefist Doomwing.

What could also be called “The Skewer Dragon”, this hefty 9 cost 2 threshold dragon sports 6/6/3 stats. While that’s not as beefy as some other beat sticks of like or less cost, it has a sweet ability. Deplete Bladefist, pay 2 times the amount of damage you want to inflict to a Character, and roast’em on the spit! Firebreathing is a reusable Skewer.

With a super tough life of 6, he’s not going to be easy to kill, so expect him to be targeted with Snake Eyes, Scrag or bounce abilities. He will be a target, but not an easy target!

In limited, big guys win games. In constructed, expensive cards are usually shied away from (especially in higher level events). But, this guy might be worth breaking that rule for.

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 4/5
 
lgmk This card is exciting. It's yet another piece of re-usable removal for the Warlords. Oh, and its a dragon so they get even more support from that. The thing about this effect is that it gets pricy. For every one damage you want to deal you need to pay two resources. You can only put this damage on one character and you need to deplete Bladefist Doomwing. That's not so great considering that a Rudo Mangod will deal four for two. Then again, if the opposing character has too much attack, not always a good idea.

The thing that makes Bladefist useful is that it has more life and strength. That means that if you use it as a blocker, you'll be able to block with it, then activate its ability. Now that is nifty. Another thing about the card that suprised me; it only has a threshold of two. That makes it easier to it into a deck- you can get it into a deck that's splashing Warlord.

I want this in my draft tomorrow.

Sealed: 5/5
Constructed 3.5/5
