doc Today we look at one of the nastier items from Part 2, the common Rogue item Poisoned Blade.

Do you think she really means apples?

This 3 cost 1 threshold piece of gear has the potential to decimate your opponent’s ranks. If the character this item is attached to inflicts even one point of damage to a character, that character is destroyed. It’s like a permanent Snake Eyes!

Some of the first questions about this card that received clarification were:

Hidden Sniper- Does his “Sharpshoot” ability count? Yes it does. Ping for one and the character dies.

Torrential Bleeder- Does everyone die? Yes they do, including Torrential Bleeder.

Dethmurderbludgeon, the Craghammer- If the character it (and Poisoned Blade) is attached to does damage to a Faction, thus triggering the effect “inflict 2 damage to a character” does that character die from Poisoned Blade’s effect? No. The character isn’t inflicting the damage, the Craghammer is.

While Poisoned Blade will unlikely be a staple in Rogue decks, I’m sure it’s ability will see some kind of great abuse!

In limited, it could be considered a piece of removal. In constructed, it probably won’t be second string.

Limited: 3.5/5
Constructed: 3/5

This was one of those cards that made me sit up and take notice. Imagine this thing on a Vander Malagut. That's just evil! In Limited, on a fast character, its reusable destruction. Again, and again, and again. And with new characters like Hasty Sacrophyle, it will definitely have a chance to do its good work.

In Constructed, tack it onto a Hidden Sniper, or just onto a fast character. Basically, this card is good wherever you put it. If you put it on a fast character, odds are your opponent won't be blocking that character much. Or they'll just treat it like it has Spiky Atlasphere on it. Except there's one difference- you'll be able to attack as a party. Make use of that and attack as a party whenever possible.

But, if you ask me, the truly amazing thing about the card is the one threshold. I mean, wow.

Limited: 5/5
Constructed: 5/5
