Well its the last day before the constructed
tournies start and we are looking at a banker card
called Pervasive Bodyguard. He cost 6 with a 2
threshold which isn't bad. he's a 4/4/2 which is ok
I guess, and has an ability which is the following:
Cost - Pay 1, pick a character in a party with this
Effect - This turn, the character gains 1 life.
Is anyone else less than thrilled with this card? I
mean I guess its ok. Have you guys figured out that
I think this card is a little bit subpar? Its not
hot, its not cold, just luke warm.
I don't know........ maybe its just not my style. I
just cant see myself using it. Maybe if you didn't
have to pay 1 to use its effect, maybe if you could
just use it once per turn for free.
I just don't know what to say really. Hopefully the
Doc will have a better review for you.
Bodyguard is interesting to say the least. His
ability allows you to pay 1 to add 1 life to another
character for the turn- as long as that character is
in a party with Pervasive Guard. That can get
expensive, but at the same time, it's useful. Not as
good as Secret Handshake at first glance, but then
again, this can be used multiple times with one
card. I still like Handshake better though.
It seems to me that two points make Pervasive Guard
1. You can use the ability as many or as few times
as you like within a turn.
2. It has strong stats and two speed.
The two speed is a factor because of the fact that
you'll be team attacking with this card. That means
that you can choose to leave a ton of resources open
and then attack with this, some other speed twos,
and a bunch of speed three or higher's. Not only
will this card's ability make sure that your lower
speed characters remain alive to strike at the
faction directly, but it will be striking itself.
Constructed: 2.4/5 I dunno, I'm testing it in one of
my decks though.
Limited: 4/5 This just the kind of card I like to
see in Sealed- something to do with extra resources
and it maintains your board.
