doc Our second installment of Sarcophyle week is yet another Sarc with issues. Today I give you the common Rogue character Bipolar Sarcophyle.

This cost 4 threshold 1 psychologically unstable Sarcophyle has a “wishy-washy” 2/3/4 for stats. While it isn’t horrible, just one more strength would really make this a usable character on all counts. As it is, you get a 50/50 chance to give him not only one more strength but an extra life as well. When this character enters play, if you call a coin toss correctly, he snaps to as a 3/4/4. Now that’s worth taking notice!

Just like his brethren with the eating disorder, the Bipolar one gets +1 strength and +1 life for each token on it. While this Sarc lacks a way to earn tokens, we all know how many ways there are to generate tokens. Have you stated thinking about an Arcanistic Sarcophlye deck yet? C’mon…make Hannibal Lechter proud!

In limited, a 50/50 chance at a 3/4/4 for 4 is a go in my book. In constructed he might get cut for trickier Rogues, especially since they have so many speed 4 characters.

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 3/5
 
lgmk Bipolar Sacrophyle has been described as either a good or a bad Scout. In my opinion, it's irrevocably better than Scout. While 50% of the time it will have lower strenghth at first, if you can support it properly it will soon have very inflated strength and life. Even without that, it has the potential to become bigger. But I can easily make the arguement that Bipolar Sacrophyle is better than Scout no matter what. I have two reasons.

1. Bipolar Sacrophyle carries a type (sacrophyle) that actually has some effects associated with it.

2. Bipolar Sacrophyle is only one threshold.

Very powerful for a single threshold splash, this card can help you dominate the Limited format. In Constructed use a token engine to make it bigger than anything your opponent can possibly throw against it. Seems like a deal to me.

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 4.5/5
