doc Today we look at the rare Warlord character Fleshripping Scenepuller.

Another quaint Warlord card eh?

For a cost of 4 with a threshold of 4, this 4/4/3 can be a defender's nightmare. With the ability to gain 4 strength for each member in a party that blocks him, we're looking at major destruction. If you can pull off a Carnival King "Conga Line" with him, all of your opponent's undepleted characters are likely going bye-bye.

Another dream combo would be with Penetrate. Since he's a speed 3, there will be opportunity for your opponent to kill the Scenepuller while all of his characters are being destroyed during speed 3 damage. One well timed Penetrate and 8-12-16-20 damage is going through to your opponent's Faction.

In limited, 4 threshold isn't admirable, but a beater like this is. In constructed, he's prime for a mono Rage beat down deck.

Limited: 3.5/5
Constructed: 3.5/5

Hey folks, Inoki here with the review for the card "Fleshripping Scenepuller."
 
When I looked at this card for the first time, I was caught off guard by its whopping fourwarlord threshold. In limited, getting 4 resources of one type has always been a bother for me. Conversely though, in constructed, getting 4 threshold isn't difficult. After analyzing the card's cost, I started thinking about game play strategy not only I would imply to use this card, but the strategy my opponent would aim for. If someone plays this card at me, I'm going to probably try and do one of two things:
 
A) Kill it. (But we do that with all nasty creatures)
B) Start racing (assuming I can deal more damage than the four from Fleshripping Scenepuller)
 
The idea of "racing" really started getting to me. If I have this card on the field, I need to be able to output more damage than my opponent every turn to make him effective. Unfortunately, that sounds like a "win more" card to me.
 
I'll probably use this term more in the future, so I might as well explain it now. When I call a card a "win more" card, I mean that it's really not needed. You're already winning the game, so why do you need this card? If you top deck this while you on the receiving end of a beating, is it going to help you? I'm not sure this card does that.
 
In limited, I would shy away from this card. It's steep threshold says to me it's either going to be dead in my hand often or played face down consistently. However if I'm already heavy into Warlord, I'd pick this up.
 
Regardless of my concept of Fleshripping Scenepuller being a "win more" card, I like it. It has style, and could be a win condition with some cards like Carnival King or Penetrate. A decently sized brawler with a very relevant effect is solid in my book, especially if you can apply pressure to your opponent with creature removal.
 
Limited: 2/5 (it'll be face down most of the time)
Constructed: 3.5/5 ("Win more" or Win Condition?)
Art: Face Ownage / 5
Now go win some money

Oh so Warlord. This four cost quadruple threshold fighter just screams abuse. For your four resource investment, you get a four strength, four life, three speed beatstick with the ability to get much, much bigger with each opposing blocker.

For example, if an opponent would block with two characters, Fleshripping Scenepuller would get an additional eight strength! This means that for four resources, you could have a twelve strength beater. Coupled with some other great Warlord tricks such as Penetrate and Dragon Juice, this guy will end games.

In Warlord rush, this guy is a shoe in. In limited, he'd almost make me go Warlord singlehandidly.

Limited: 4
Constructed: 4
