Harbringer of Havoc
Well, this week we start into our high drop
characters from MHG. These include the 5 and
6-drops from each affiliation.
Basics: Firelord is a 6-drop Heralds character
with flight, range and stats of 11/13. He also
has a cosmic effect which allows you discard a
character for X attack, where X is the cost of
the character you discarded. Of course you can
only use this power once per turn, but who
cares...it is a great effect nonetheless.
Constructed play: Firelord is an excellent
character regardless of the format. This guy has
a great defense and an effect which will allow
him to be a beast on the field. Regardless of
which end of the attack he is on, there is no
reason he shouldn't be stunning someone. His
flight and range make him that much better. I
think this guy is a must for any Heralds deck.
Sealed play: Like I said before, this guy is
great regardless of the format. He is a first
pick over any other 6-drop since his effect
isn't limited to a particular team affiliation
and he doesn't have timing issues.
MMA constructed - 3.5/5.0 ...This is a great
character with an even better effect.
GA constructed - 3.5/5.0 ...ditto
Limited - 4.0/5.0 ...Don't pass this character
Harbinger of Havoc
The ability to turn an extra 5 drop into a
Savage Beatdown is nothing to sneeze at, and
Firelord does it as a common. With 13 DEF, you
even have a chance to attack the opposing 6 drop
and avoid the stunback, keeping Firelord's
counter on where it can cause some more damage.
If you have your opponent low enough on
endurance, you can just pitch your 7 drop to his
effect and end the game right there. There's an
uncommon 8 drop in this set; +8 ATK would be
nice, right? If you like to make aggressive
plays, there are few more aggressive than
swinging with an 18/13 on turn 6, especially if
you've saved any other pumps to go with it.
Flight and Range make him even more attractive,
since he can take his huge ATK anywhere on your
opponent's board. The Power Cosmic Unleashed is
a good play if he does get stunned, allowing you
to make an attack with him, then slap his
counter back on and surprise your opponent with
another massive attack boost. The first person
to be able to discard Mageddon to give him +10
ATK wins a free cookie.
So this week we introduce the high drops of the
Heralds set. Todayís card is insanely good
Harbinger of Havoc
Heralds of Galactus/6/11/13
Cosmic: Discard a character card > Firelord gets
+X ATK this attack, where X is the cost of the
card you discarded. Use this power only once per
Firelord is a 20/13 for 6. If that doesnít make
you crap your pants, I donít know what will.
Marvel Modern: HUGE 6 drop. 5/5
Silver Age: Itís still HUGE 5/5
Golden Age If you can make turn six, HUGE 5/5
Of course, Iím assuming you WILL play Galactus.
