Boneshanks
 

People sure did overrate this guy. I remember with the release of Dark Portal everyone was saying how awesome this guy was, how we could expect to see plenty of this guy…but where is he now?


He’s got ok stats: 3/2 is what you’d expect on a good 2-drop, but it’s his effect that’s jacked up his price. Now it should be that this guy’s effect is broken, but the designers input a small flaw which is enough to keep people away from this guy: he has to destroy an ally, so if your opponent has none, when Boneshanks dies so does one of your dudes, giving your opponent the all-important +1 that you were looking for when you included this guy in your deck.


This one small problem enables an intelligent opponent to manipulate the field and thus Boneshanks’ effect. This means it’s only really safe to summon him when you have no other guys out, or if your opponent has way more than you and you’re in a bad position anyways.

 

Constructed 2/5

Sealed 3/5

Casual 3/5

Raid 1/5

Boneshanks

 

Ally

Play Cost: 3

Attack: 3

Health: 2

When Boneshanks is destroyed, destroy target ally.

 

Taking down this guy, probably it’s attacker and another target ally (make sure your opponent has another ally out, or else you have to destroy one of your own).

 

You could try this card out, but it most likely won’t see any play in top decks on tournaments.

 

Sealed: 2/5
Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 4/5
Raid: 2/5

 

See you on the Battlefield

Strictly a Kamikaze card, however being able to choose which ally you destroy makes it far more of a threat.

It also makes your opponent think twice about using ally destruction on him since they will lose an ally .

You can also target your own allies but I can't see to many situation where that would be helpful.

Sealed: 3/5

Constructed: 3/5

Casual: 3/5

Raid: 2/5
