||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

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