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
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
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.
