Of course Boholt can go very tall if you have a lot of soldier spawner, but he can also be very little if you have not. I just see many situations where he failsYou are welcome.
Overall I would agree with the direction of your estimations of the 4 new NR cards, with the exception of Boholt.
In my opinion you severely underestimate this card.
In Reaver Hunter focused decks you will always have 1 or more of their spawn orders available during the turn he gets played and the fact that he only spawns, rather than spawns and plays, makes little difference for Reaver Hunters and Scouts.
So Boholt will boost for the 1 Order already available + his own Order, meaning he will start at 6 power with 1 Armor and given that he places 2 threats on the board at the same time I would say he can be quite threatening.
Also I am not sure that the Reaver Hunter deck will be all that bad, given that Mushy Truffle, Garrion, Adalia, Boholt, Amphibious Assault, Shani, Idarran, Reinforcements and Reaver Scouts can help field them.
Furthermore they have access to Ildiko, King Belohun and Idarran as additional significant threats, which demand an immediate response or which otherwise make answering the Reaver Hunters significantly more difficult.
If one uses Inspired Zeal for them one can also use Raffard's Vengence, which can put multiple threats on the board in one turn and benefits from their Soldier tags.
Inspired Zeal will also likely be the prefered leader ability, given that 1-2 leader charges on Reaver Hunters makes 1 copy (each Round) go through and immediately enables all subsequent Bonded abilities.
Edit: Also before I forget to mention it at all. I really like the direction of these artworks. As an example the fog in the artwork of Boholt makes the entire scene look amazing.
I don't think "great" and "garbage" mean the same things to me as they do to you.Nauad pondkeeper its a garbage Card.
Its always 6 for 5 and/or a 5 for 5 with symbiosis.
Frog season with prism pendant its huge
Ok, i didnt quote you because i was not "correcting you" or something like that.I don't think "great" and "garbage" mean the same things to me as they do to you.
"Plop a card down, win the f*cking round" card is not a "great" card to me. Instead, THAT's "garbage."
But a flexible, strategic card that can be either used as an engine or as an emergency removal in a deck that has very little removal is great, even if it's "always 6 for 5"
I was specifically talking about Reaver Hunters focused decks, which will run > 50% ways to access or clone that card.Of course Boholt can go very tall if you have a lot of soldier spawner, but he can also be very little if you have not. I just see many situations where he fails
- short round 3
- Bad draws (no soldier spawners allied)
- Playing against a control heavy deck
So I am asking myself whether he is worth 12 provisions. There can be situations where he is just a 3 for 12 (non allied soldiers and played on Range). He somehow reminds on Yaga (can be huge if lucky).
Maybe, we will seeAs I read it, boost all units means friendly and enemy — outside a swarm archetype, this power is not great — especially when ST, NR, and MO are likely to have swarm elements as well.
Post automatically merged:
So far, this card drop looks very restrained — something we really need for the game. We will see if this pattern persists as ST and SK are revealed.
Triggering vitality means you make it tick one extra time per turn, imo, so basically what you have here is 4 frogs triggering 8 vitality in 1 turn, aka 12 "on deploy" and then double proccing any future vitalities on adjacent units. So, 12 on deploy, and although no extra points generated, the frogs will be speeding vitality up into boost, which is nice. Overcrowding is a real issue, though, so, again, this is a short round card, probably....
Frog Mating Season
On paper this is just a 12 (2 x 4 vitality and 2 frogs) for 9 nature card. I am not quite sure what vitality triggering means. Is all of the vitality translated into boost or is just vitality triggered twice. The frogs can have devasting effects on cards like Freixenet and Hamadryad. Furthermore, there is a huge risk of overflooding your board (Something Symbiosis is already struggling with).
Depending on the definition of vitality triggering this card synergizing nicely with Prism Pendant
