||We start the
first week of April with the uncommon Arcanist fool
For a cost of 4 with a threshold of 1, this 2/1/3
Covert character is another example of cost doesn’t
equal stats. Even if they are Covert stats. So
what’s the trade off? “Counter draw” (I just made
What is “counter draw” you ask? Its ability to force
your opponent to put a card from hand to the top of
their deck. Effectively, it erases their next card
draw costing them 6 (3 for loss of card and 3 to
draw it back). I’d say that’s a worth while effect!
Now let’s compare this to a similar Arcanist card,
The Octopod has the same cost but 4 times the
threshold. Same life, but 1 and 2 less strength and
speed respectively. If it inflicts damage to your
opponents faction they must discard 2 cards which
effectively costs them 6 also. If you’re going for
threshold that high in Obsession, why not use both!
Of course their BIG drawback…1 life. Lots of ways to
remove them from the field.
If you can hit one time, you’re almost even but set
their game back. Hit more than once and we’re
talking about a big advantage.
In limited, one threshold gives it a thumbs up. In

Today we look at the uncommon Deceptive Muddler of
the Arcanist trade. He's a four cost character with
two strength, one life and three speed.
He fits well into the discard niche the Arcanist
trade showcases like none other. He has keyword
covert and the ability to make an opponent put a
card from their hand to the top of their deck when
it deals damage.
He's pretty good late game after your opponent's
destruction has been exhausted some, and really good
in multiples. In constructed, it will find its place
in control players hearts, and in limited it is
another character with a neat ability.
