doc Are you ready for Bomb #3? The Arcanist Tactic Degenerate Molestation.

As required for a Bomb…cost 10, threshold 4. And this one’s a doosey!

How does clearing out your opponents hand and playing all of your cards for free sound?
No I’m not kidding. And just to make sure it goes off without a hitch, “Your opponent cannot respond to this card.”

I’ve seen some nasty tricks with this, beyond it’s already nasty effect. How about playing some bounce for free? (Not like Arcanists don’t have a ton of that!) Send something back to your opponents hand, make him discard it and you just keep on playing cards for free. Or, set him up with some crazy Banker draw from Free Trade Agreement and watch the cardboard fly!

This card is BEGGING to have decks built around it. Some will say 10 costs (let alone 4 threshold) is just too much…impractical and inconsistent. I say give it a whirl and see how much fun it can be!

In Limited, it’s a game breaker/winner. In Constructed, you either build around it or throw one in and smile really big if/when you draw it in the mid-late game.

Limited: 5/5
Constructed: 4/5
 
lgmk Degenerate Molestation

The arcanist 'bomb' tactic. The character on this also appears as the Arcanist representative on another card, brownie points to anyone who names it.

In any case, this card makes your opponent discard their whole hand. Seriously. Now everyone's going to play it, right?

Sure, though only a few copies because the cost is so high.

3/5 Constructed
2.4/5 Limited

Wait, I missed something? Oh yeah, you get to play a card with half the cost, rounded up, of each card that your opponent discards. Late in the game, you'll be able to play great big buggers for free. The highest you're likely to discard is 9 or 10 cost. That means you can play a five cost card for free. I'd say Forget, but you'd just pick the cheapest card out of their hand. Just go ahead and play all the characters and field clearing effects you can with the 'free' cards. Imagine this with Quotodian Assasination. Just about anything your opponent discards will let you play it, and then guess what? Another card for them to discard, another card for you to play for free. I like.

An additional note, Degenerate Molestation cannot be responded to. That means that even if your opponent has a bomb tactic they want to get out of their hand before you discard it, they can't. That's bloody awesome. The turn will end with them lacking a hand and you having considerable board presence. That means this card is best played at the end of your opponent's turn. Or at the beginning depending on what you want.

5/5 Constructed

3.9/5 Limited (gotta love the funky averages this turns out)
