||Today we look
at my second favorite new card of First Edition. The
Uncommon Rogue Character Carnival King.
For a 3 cost 2 threshold Character, 2/1/3 is sub-par
for sure. So there must be something good and useful
with this card to make up for it…Right? Oh yeah,
right in deed!
For an acceptable cost of 3 and the depletion of
Carnival King, one Character will lure all opposing
Characters into battle by way of the “Conga Line”
(name for ability). Whether you want to lure them to
their death by way of a 19/19 Thief Doyen geared up
with Leutoderm Goliath or whether you want to simply
cause them all to Deplete upon surviving battle with
a Micromajig, either can set up a win condition
mighty quickly. Or maybe you can hook it up with a
Character that has tomorrow’s card attached!
More tomorrow, so stay tuned!
In limited, this will have a “bomb-like” effect by
way of my second example more often than not. In
constructed, we’re looking at a key piece of win
Constructed: 5/5 (I’d give it a 6 if I could!)
wins games. Personally I find it ironic that it
costs so little to play a character that has such a
great late game ability. Then again, it has its uses
earlier in the game too. It combo's wonderfully with
tomorrows card for one thing. For another, you can
send some weak character in using Carnival King's
ability, and then go in with a big character.
Personally I think that Carnival King works best in
a Rogue/Warlord deck because then you can send in
Crazed Deputy, make everyone block it, maybe use a
speed enhancer and Dragon Juice on it so it gets out
alive and the opponent's characters don't, and then
go in directly with Reckless Challenger. You've got
to love it.
