Friday departure from the theme of the week, today
we look at the rare Rogue Character Thief Doyen.
One of the other sub-themes for Rogues is tokens.
Thief Doyen is the king when it comes to coming into
play with lots of them! Along with his cost of 4 you
must discard a Character or Item. Put a number of
tokens on Thief Doyen equal to the [numeric] cost of
the discarded card giving him +1/+1 for each token.
If you can hook this up with…oh say maybe… Leutoderm
Goliath, then pulling that Item out with a simple
Tri-pole Magnet…BOOM! A 19/19/3 super beatstick on
turn 4 for a total cost of 6. You know you’d love to
pull it…don’t lie!
That would be a great match up with Gearsmith, but
lets talk about matching him up with the other token
trade, Arcanist. Tokens, tokens, tokens… Voidal
Perversion, Skimping Ectomanipulator etc, are just
begging to give more and more tokens to the king
Thief Doyen can also make use of that higher cost
card that is turning out to be useless in your
current match up. This makes the inclusion of some
of the nastier, more expensive cards easier to
swallow if you know there’s another use for them.
One thing to be aware of though is this:
If Thief Doyen comes into play by means other than
paying for him, he’ll be a 0/0/3. When Characters
have 0 life, they’re dead.
In limited, you can throw in a couple high cost
cards that you won’t likely use and hope one of them
comes up at the right time to throw out the new big
dog on the board. In constructed he can easily
become a nightmare to your opponent.
