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
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.
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.
