doc After a short leave of absence, we bring you the Rare Warlord item Humiliating Torture Apparatus.

Arguably the “cruelest” looking card in First Edition, this 4 cost 3 threshold item is another example of a card that is begging to have a deck built around it. Virtually every Character and several Items don’t do a thing for you unless you use them. Using them often is accompanied by depleting them. So if I can make you lose 1 Influence every time you deplete a card, isn’t it just a matter of time before I win?

In a defensive Influence gain deck built mainly with Bankers, this seems a realistic possibility. Will we see this as yet un-talked about deck in one of the Winter Constructed Championships coming to a FLGS near you this weekend? Probably not. At least not yet!

I’ve got to talk for a moment about the art on this card. Have you noticed there’s a pineapple amongst the bloody, pointy, sharp things? What do you suppose that’s there for? If you get the chance, take a look at the Beta art on this card too. If you know who Miss Piggy and Gonzo are, you might recognize one of the torturers!

In limited, this card will likely hurt you as much as your opponent. In a constructed deck like I proposed above, we’re looking at possibilities!

Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 3.5/5
