doc Today we have another addition to the covert masses. The uncommon Arcanist character Rummaging Millipede.

Another addition to the ever increasing number of bugs too.

This 5 cost 2 threshold character is a great side kick to our already lovable Servile Centipede. Its 3/1/3 stats mirror the Centipede’s 1/3/3, and its ability is comparable as well. Where the Centipede pulls tactics from your draw pile, Millipede pulls them back out of the discard pile once the Centipede is done with them.

Is it worth the added cost and threshold (one of each)? 2 threshold isn’t anything to worry about and with its extra Covert punch of 3 vs. Centipede’s 1 (yes Millipede is more fragile at 1 life) and the ability to re-use a tactic, I’d say yes.

In limited, replaying key tactics is…key. In constructed, this will see almost as much play as its little brother.

Limited: 4.5/5
Constructed: 4/5
Ian Spiegel Rummagaing Millipede

I've never liked bugs, and this Millipede doesn't do much to change my mind. For a five cost double threshold character, his stats are completely subpar. He's covert, but so what? He only has one life, which means he dies to Target Practice, Shriever Attack, Hidden Sniper, Impeccable Timing, Dragon Quarter's...I could go on.

His ability seems like it could be decent with the release of future sets, in that he allows you to return a tactic from your discard pile to your hand. But it seems to me that instead of playing this guy, I'd rather draw a card. It seems to me that if I draw this guy, I'd usually wish it was a tactic itself.

In Limited, he's a creature with Covert with an added bonus, which seems good to me. However, his stats make him not much more than a filler card. In constructed, I'd rather play another resource.

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 2.5
