I don't think one squirrel is going to help anyone. How many points can you realistically say you would take away from him with squirrel lol
Well, in the particular case shown, Squirrel played as the last card for NR to remove Rioghan would have saved up to 122 points of swing:
- Rioghan's 8 point body
- 4 turns of the Storm triggers (32 points damage at 8 units, assuming all had 5+ points of body)
- 3 turns of the Rain triggers (6 points with 2 units, assuming they all had 4+ points of body).
- (32+6) x 2 = 76 points of boosts to the two Messengers.
Set up properly, Rioghan is the biggest point swing in the game. EVERY turn of storm / rain damage triggers all at once, boosting the Messengers by one point for each point of damage done.
