||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.
||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
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
I want this in my draft tomorrow.
