Who doesn't like seeing his opponent lose cards from
his hand? Seriously, who? Entering the hand discard
lineup is another of Shadowclash's anti-Light
offerings from the Darkness civilization, Soul Gulp.
#1. Fairly affordable discard versus Light based
decks--that can be good for taking shots at
crippling Light's best plays--power blockers,
Cutter, Awe, searchers
#1. Narrow application: tailored made for
Light-heavy metas & better suited as tech against
#2. Number of cards discarded depends on the number
of Light creatures in your opponent's battle zone.
No Light creatures, no discard.
#3. Your opponent chooses the cards to discard if
he's not made to lose his whole hand—how much are
you willing to bet that he won’t choose Holy Awe?
1/5 mono-Light is a popular build in many metas
thanks in large part to the Gen Con Indy winning
deck. But I doubt that you're setting across only
mono-Light decks. And if you are, due to some
serious net-decking or whatnot, then slap Crystal
Paladin or Scarlet Skyterror in your deck with more
versatile hand rob. I'd rather pack Lost Soul, Ghost
Touch, or hand discard creatures like Horrid Worm
since they have wider application. But, hey, that's
me. I'm crazy like that.
Hey everyone today we have Soul Gulp, a good card
but it has very limited uses.
Well as most of you know Light is leading the
current meda game with dimond cutter making it
appear a lot =/. Which gives this card some use, but
even so I think all these cards that work specificly
against one deck will realy kill you if you play a
non-light deck =/. I am personaly playing a darkness
deck with jack viper/mongrel man and no where in the
deck does it have "anti-light" cards because not
everyone plays light, and maybe sure it is the best
deck, it might not be for long. Eventualy some deck
that is better will come out and all these
"anti-light" cards will be near useless =/.
constructed- 3/5 it would have gotten a 1 but since
light is currently the best deck it gets a higher
limited- 1.5/5 a lot less likely that a deck will
final thought- If around you everyone plays light
that you might want to try this and cards like this,
but if not keep this in your binder=/.
Soul Gulp is a card that
is utterly useless unless your opponent is running
Light Creatures. I would not recommend this card. It
is a dead draw unless you are facing a Light deck.
Many people will say that this is good in a Light
heavy meta. It is, but if you need a silver bullet
to kill a Light deck with, then something is wrong
with your build. More than just a Light deck will
exploit whatever flaw is allowing you to lose to
