Not quite a search card, but better than just
about every other "filter" card. Look at the top
3 cards, pitch any that you don't want to the
bottom of your deck, keep the ones you want on
the top (in any order), and then if you're
playing Thule, draw a card.
You can either dig three deep for an answer or a
drop, and then either put it on top and
immediately draw it, or put them all on the
bottom and take your chances with drawing the
next card. Good to play before your draw step,
or if you have other card drawing cards ready to
go. The cost is great at 1.
That's about it, good solid card for Thule.
This is another one of the good Hellboy cards…
Wake The Devil
Look at the top three cards of your deck. Put
any number of those cards on the bottom of your
deck and the rest on the top of your deck in any
order. If you control a Thule Society character,
draw a card.
This is a very nice accelerator. Look at three,
keep one. Of, if you don’t like any of those
three, you can always opt for a mystery card.
The point is that it’s a good, temporary way to
stack your deck. That kind of cheating is not
legal very often, so you should use this card to
your advantage when you play Thule Society.
And I’m out.
Final day of Hellboy and here comes Wake the
Devil. I must admit, I'm a bit disappointed this
week. This card isn't horrible, it always pays
off to know what's coming up in your deck and
try to control it to your advantage. In a Sealed
deck, this can help, but it is not as powerful
as it will be hard to pull on a regular basis.
For that reason, it comes in average with a
three. Now, Constructed adds a nice twist. Like
I said, it is always helpful to control your
deck a bit. Get four of these in your deck, turn
enough of them up, and control your deck for the
next few rounds. I would only rate this average
even in a constructed deck, but for the fact
that it has absolutely no draw back to be put in
any deck you could imagine.
So, Hellboy ends the week with a few fours, but
mainly threes and below.
I must admit, I'm not very impressed, but we
will see how next week goes. See everyone next
Cards like this actually make me hate other
cards that I shouldn't i.e. this in comparison
to The Illuminati. Same effect, Illuminati cost
0 so it can actually fix your draw after a
mulligan, which is great, but Wake The Devil
draws you a card, if you're playing a Thule
Society character. I get to look at the top
three, arrange my draw and a half, then draw a
card? Thanks a lot. Then again, you have to
control a Thule Society character (which means
you have to build with good ratios, which we all
know to do) so it's not absolutely positively
free, but it's great.
Constructed - 3.5 (Please give me three good
reasons if you don't agree why adjusting your
draw is bad)
Sealed - No sealed in Hellboy. However, I think
it probably would be 4.0
