||We end this
week with the uncommon Warlord character Suicide
Or by the art work, the amputee brigade.
This 4cost 2 threshold 3/1/3 is the latest addition
to the mono Warlord agro beat down direct damage
kick you in the face and smile about it deck! With
the appropriately named ability “Ultimate
Sacrifice”, Suicide Squad can effectively take out
characters with up to 6 life if you destroy him
after battle damage is assigned (including his own
lethal damage of course) or can be used as the part
of a “destroy a character” cost thus giving him a 2
Throw in a Dragon Juice and get an effective pump of
10 for your cost of 2. My inner Rage is aching to
lay the smack down!
I’m sure there are lots of tricks that you can pull
off with this ability. In limited, he’s a character
that doubles as removal. In constructed, he’s a
beatstick with tricks.
Suicide Squad is one of the new tricks Walords were
afforded with Part Two. Is is a four cost double
threshold charater, with three strength, one life,
and three speed.
Its stats are just ok for a four drop in my opinion,
but his ability is what makes him shine. He allows
you to sacrifice himself to inflict damage equal to
his strength to another character on the board.
In essence, he becomes a target practice with a
body. This can be coupled with cards like Dragon
Juice to deal eight damage to a character,
effectively killing off whatever is necessary to
kill at the time.
In constructed, he's decent removal with a body, and
in limited he serves the same purpose. However, in
the limited format with a smaller pool of characters
and destruction, a card that can do both is pretty
exceptional in my book.
Limited: 5 - doesn't get much better on the
