||Today we look
at the biggest single direct damage card in the Open
Beta set, the Uncommon Warlord Tactic Bask Bile.
To start, I’ve got to mention the flavor text: “For
the melting of troops and stuff. Available in french
onion, barbeque ranch, or original nacho cheese
Now onto the card…
For a cost of 7 with an easy to attain threshold of
2, doing 5 damage to a character or faction is HUGE.
With a little support, four of these played in rapid
succession spell “you win”. With only one card that
negates the effect of a card (another Warlord
Tactic, Tactician Vacation); the probability of it
getting through is about 99.5%. (100% unless your
opponent is playing Warlord!)
With that said, combining Bask Bile with the
Arcanist Tactic Voidal Replilcation (copies the last
Tactic played this turn for a cost of 3) and/or the
Warlord Tactic Dragon’s Strategy (inflict 2 damage
to opponent’s Faction) and/or the Arcanist Tactic

MASS direct damage in a short amount of time.
In limited, 5 direct damage can easily make the
difference between win and lose.
In constructed, 2-4 copies in a Warlord deck are
nearly a given. In a speed Warlord deck that only
has 2 Staple Resources (the 2 you start with in
play), you’re definitely using 4!
This card is fairly simple. Five damage to a
character or a faction. On one side, it can be game
ending. On the other, you can do the same with a
well played Dragon Juice. And seeing as Dragon Juice
costs five less than this to play, I'm sticking with
Of course, I'm still going to play Bask Bile in some
decks. It's just that a two cost tactic is almost as
