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