doc We start our week with a bang…or thud…or smack depending on how you look at it! The common Warlord character Elbow Dropper.

For a cost of 4 with a threshold of 2, the 3/2/3 Elbow Dropper is another Warlord nightmare for defenders. While Bloodcurdling Bulldozer can deplete a character when he attacks, Elbow Dropper can do it any time. Beware though, if you use his ability before you declare an attack, you’re giving your opponent a chance to respond before battle. This might not be in your best interest.

You can however, use the opportunity to use abilities after declaring your attack, (step 3 of “How to Attack”) which is before your opponent gets his first chance to play a tactic or use an ability (step 4).

Another simple straight forward card, the tag-team of Bulldozer and Elbow Dropper can either wreak havoc on your opponent’s defense, force him to attack with more than he’d like to in an effort to use his characters before they become useless, or force him to under attack, holding back enough characters to properly block your attack.

In limited, this common 2 threshold character will see plenty of play. In constructed, Warlord has so many options that this may not always be a “four of”.

Limited: 4.5/5
Constructed: 4/5

This isn't my favorite card from the new set. It tends to be more of a 'win more' card than a card that actually helps you gain advantage over your opponent. When it comes down to it, you'd usually rather have another character with a large strength value to be attacking with than this. None the less, I suppose it could have its uses in a destruction heavy Constructed deck.

Sealed: 2/5

You'll play it because its a character, nothing more.

Constructed: 1.5/5

Any piece of destruction is preferable. Because guess what? A dead character can't block this turn OR next turn.
