Sneaky Mansion

This card almost won me a 2nd Laptop this weekend. It's huge, it's fat, and in he late game it can just win. Without a good viable removal spell, which should be in topdeck mode only at that point, this is a game winner. For constructed, it's cost makes it completely not viable - you will not get to 12. In limited, if you have a defensive enough deck, running one is not so bad. The game can run late, and without an answer, it's a winner.

Constructed: 1
Limited: 3.5
 
doc I’m back from an amazing trip to GenCon SoCal and ready to pick up where I left off!

Today we look at the new biggest baddest character on the block, the Arcanist Sneaky Mansion.

In Open Beta, the Warlord Character Dragon Tank held the crown for the biggest meanest tough in The Spoils. The king is dead… Long live the new king. At 12 strength 12 life and a nice 3 speed, Sneaky Mansion is the beat stick of beat sticks. Oh, and did I mention that he’s Covert?

With a whopping cost of 12 and a manageable threshold of 3, with a little Gearsmith intervention and a commitment to Resource development, it’s not unthinkable to have this finisher out by round 8 or so. Many will search for a way to end the game earlier than that, but can you imagine the look on your opponents face when you drop this big nasty? Now that’s got to count for something!

With no tricks up it’s sleeve, Sneaky Mansion is a straight forward Godzilla club! In limited, big creatures usually make a significant impact on who wins. But it’s cost certainly is prohibitive unless you’re lucky enough to get some Resource acceleration as well. In constructed, he’ll probably be thrown into a gimmicky deck and never see real tourney play.

Limited: 2.5/5
Constructed: 1.5/5

This is now tied with Dragon Tank as the most expensive card in the game. But guess what? It's bigger. Not only that, but it has lower threshold. I'm even going to hazard that it has the best cost to strength/life ratio of any card yet released. That alone makes it worth thorough analysis. Then you toss in the fact that it has Covert. Normally Covert being on a card will mean that it costs more. Not so here. Finally it's done by the funniest artist series artist. That alone makes it worth getting. Poor kid, getting bitten by a mansion. He'll be scarred for the rest of his life.

It's huge in Limited. Odds are that by the time you get this guy out your opponent won't have much left to deal with it. And this will single handedly end the game. Better yet, it won't give your opponent much time to gather their resources for a response. They have one of their own turns and two of yours to find a solution. I wish them luck. Especially if they're me.

Limited: 4/5

Constructed: 3.5/5 (I can see a deck built around this, it'll take some work though)

Sneaky Mansion

Today we take a look at the granddaddy of all charectors in the Spoils. The absolutly HUGE Sneaky Mansion. While Dragon Tank was a sight to behold in open beta, this card blows it out of the water. Its a 12 / 12 / 3 and (drum roll) its Covert!

Sadly if ether you or you opponent is running a good deck the game will not permit time to bring out a 12 cost creature...... unless your running Gearsmith/Archanist but I digress. Its threshold isnt terrible so I guess it has that going for it.

All in all this card is only going to see play in beginners decks and fun decks.... and ofcoarse where it shines, the sealed competition.

In sealed this thing breaks games and kills draws. If you get it in sealed and have a little archanist support then by all means run it. Youll thank me if you go up against a Banker Defence deck.

Sealed - 4 / 5

Draft 2 / 5

CON .5 / 5 (sry its just too big, you play this against me and ill be rezing it to use against you)
