KJFJustice BAND OF THE RANGER GENERAL

This is an 3 cost ring that says pay 1 less to strike with weapons for each weapon you have.

This is a good card, but you don’t want to play it too early. Early game you want to play your cheap weapons which have a 0 or 1 strike cost, so this ring won’t help you much yet. But after you get your tank-structure set, you can drop this on the field. It costs three and does nothing for you right off the bat, but as it saves you resources, it gets you a benefit that could far-outweigh its cost. The first thing is that opponents will rarely try to get rid of it because it doesn’t seem like a threat, but really, it’s a silent killer.

As a tank-player this World Championships I expect you’ll get 2 weapons on the field easily including a bow as one of the weapons. But many of you will also duel-wield and have 3 on the field. If you do that and then drop the Band on the field when you’re about to swing, you can practically swing with any weapon for free because you’ll be saving 3 for each of them. What this means is that you only have to swing with 2 2-strike cost weapons for the Band to pay for itself. That means you’re saving free extra resources each time you swing in the future and can use those resources on other cards.

OR, if you have some expensive weapons in your binder that cost a lot to swing, this ring can make them more efficient and reasonable to use in the game.

Sealed: 2.5
Constructed: 4.0
Casual: 3.5
Raid: 2.0
turkeyspit Band of the Ranger General

Now this is a good card. In case you haven't been around the competitive scene recently, Solo decks have become all the rage! From Gorebelly to Fillet to Rotun, Heros walking around brandishing multiple weapons has become a common sight.

With FOO we received a number of cards that provide the "Dual Wield" modifiyer, which only makes Band of the Ranger General that much better.

For example, with Band equipped to your Rotun Daggerhand, along with Striker's Mark, Warp Splinter's Thorn and Perdition's Blade, all three weapons could be swung FOR FREE!

Many players are focusing on their Armor these days, but with Surprise Attacks! becoming commonplace, it might be better to run this card instead, and be able to swing your Wraith Scythes for free!

-------------------------------------

Sealed:
2/5 - It's unlikely that you will get a huge selection of Weapons to choose from

Constructed:
4/5 - Can be absolutely brutal in the right deck

Casual:
5/5 - see constructed

Raid:
2/5 - Too many cards that destroy all opposing Abilities, Equipment and Allies, I doubt you would get much use out of Band.
