Today we have the latest in Rogue surprises.  The common Rogue character Unexpected Boobysnake.

 

Anyone counted the mammary references in Part 2?

 

This 4 cost 2 threshold character boasts decent 3/2/4 stats and is only one of the 22 Rogue cards with 4 or higher speed, (compared to Arcanist’s 0, Banker’s 2, Warlord’s 2 and Gearsmith’s 5).  Add to that its ability to be played at “tactic speed” and we’ve got a winner even with its extra cost of discarding one card.  Previously, you could do this with Sudden Osprey and gain a +1/+1 to the character of your choice, or with Ravenous Wolf for a covert surprise with the loss of a Deception.

 

Add these all together and you’ve got an opponent who’s constantly guessing at what your next move might be.  Since you get the opportunity to play tactics before you declare defenders, as long as you have 4 resources open your opponent will have to consider that you might have a speed 4 waiting in the wings to muck up his plans.  Since there are only 9 non-Rogue characters that can keep up with speed 4, this is a monkey wrench waiting to happen.

 

In limited, it’s one step below Sudden Osprey which is a 5/5 unto itself.  In constructed, it’s a home wrecker in the right deck.

 

Limited: 5/5

Constructed: 5/5

Ian Spiegel Unexpected Boobysnake

Who can hide from the BOOBYSNAKE?

This Rouge four cost character has three strength, an impressive four speed, and two life. He also shares Sudden Osprey's ability to be played at Tactic speed in order to block, or just to attack next turn.

To play this card at Tactic speed, you are required to discard a card which considerably lowers its usefulness. However, just like the card says, no one expects the Boobysnake!

In limited, it is another character with four speed, so I would imagine it to see play. You can always discard that extra resource.

In constructed, I have yet to see it used competitively, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have its place. It is definetly a cool card.

Limited: 4
Constructed: 3
