doc Once again we’re looking at the most expensive Character in a trade. The Banker Character Necromorph Bureaucrat.

For this 9 cost 2 threshold Character you get a huge threat. Being able to deplete 2 of your opponents Characters effectively negates their best blockers or, if they slip up, their best attackers. It will also make you opponent think about which Characters he needs to hold back from attacking so that he can mount a decent defense. For all intents and purposes, Necromorph Bureaucrat reduces the number of Characters on the other side of the board by 2, unless your opponent is straight up Aggro and intends on attacking with all his Characters every turn.

Since you cannot use Necromorph Bureaucrat’s ability during your opponent’s turn until he plays a card or uses an ability, you cannot preemptively deplete his best Characters and preventing them from attacking that turn. So as long as your opponent is paying attention, you’ll find this card useful in preventing a second or third attack in a round or eliminate nasty blockers during your attack.

One thing he cannot do is prevent a Character from using an ability that involves it’s own depletion. Since your opponent can always respond to your use of Necromorph Bureaucrat’s ability, and Subjugate’s effect does not resolve until after responses are resolved, it will be ineffective.

As with yesterday’s CotD, Necromorph Bureaucrat’s 1/1/3 wont do anything to protect him, so get as much out of him as you can while he’s on the board.

In sealed, he can be a mid to late game crippler. In constructed he’ll more likely be a temporary disruption.

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 4/5
lgmk Necromorph Bureaucrat

This my favorite of the nine cost, 1/1/3 characters. It has the power to deplete two of the opponent's characters by depleting itself. This has great defensive and offensive potential although for the defensive aspect it is necessary for the opponent to cooperate and play something for you to respond to before attacking. In a bind you can always block with Necromorph first and then use its ability to deplete two non involved characters. Offensively it can be used to get potential defenders out of the way. Together with Brummagen Jewelery, Grusome Trophies, and Bloodcurdling Bulldozer, you can get some nice pot shots. Toss in Humiliating Torture Apparatus and... well, you can imagine.

3.4/5 Sealed
4.6/5 Constructed
