doc With no more Sarcophyle characters left, today we try to make some converts. I give you the uncommon Rogue Tactic Sarcophyle Matriculation.

As I noted previously, there are only 3 Sarcs in First Edition. Wouldn’t more be better? I think so! For a cost of 4 with a threshold of 2, you get the option of both turning a character AND stealing him from your opponent. When you are attacked, if you can destroy an attacking character, play this tactic prior to lethal damage being inflicted. If you do, take control of it, make it a Sarcophyle and place it on your side of the board depleted.

Granted, you have to kill the character (you can’t just steal him outright) but you’ll have the plan in place already, so it shouldn’t be too hard. Until we get more Sarcs, we’ll have to count on this Tactic to fill our “unbalanced” Sarcophyle troops!

In limited, it’s a bit too expensive to run just to steal a destroyed character. In a constructed Sarcophyle deck, it’s mandatory.

Limited: 1.5/5
Constructed: 4/5
lgmk Ah, Sacrophyle Matriculation. The things I've done with this card. Let's go over the card itself- does that effect seem familiar? It should as its basically a watered down version of Vander Malagut's effect. Except the fact that its a tactic makes it a surprise that can't be easily planned for. It also makes whatever character you gain control of a sacrophyle, but I find that to be a minor point unless you have Vander on the field.

My story about this card involved me using it on an attacking Dragon Tank. I then played Scrag on that Dragon Tank- he had just enough cards in his discard pile. I ended up winning that game. It's a good card, but its expensive and requires some support. Then again, if you can use it on a Dragon Tank, isn't it worth it?

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 4/5
