Chaotic Card of the Week-April 23

Welcome to my first installment of Chaotic Card of the Week :)

This week's card is Garv!

Card Text: [1MC]: Flip target Battlegear face-up or face-down. Unique

Tribe: OverWorld
Courage: 50
Power: 25
Wisdom: 75
Speed: 30
Energy: 55

At first, you can see that he is an alright creature, but you don't really see him getting actual play time. First impressions are often deceiving!

I once thought that, but I learned a lot from my trip to the New York Comic Con. Obviously Garv isn't a front lines creature meant to battle, but he is a great support creature. Allow me to let you in on a little secret ;).

Garv's battlegear of choice would be the Orb of Foresight, or the Flux Bauble. Because both battlegear only say "At the beginning of combat" it doesn't specify that it has to be the combat that that creature is in. With Garv's ability, you can flip this battlegear face-up at the beginning of the match, so you will be setting up your attacks or locations for the rest of the match. That just may be the edge you need to take down the competition!
