Chaotic Card of the Week

Welcome back to yet another Card of the Week! You guys aren't sick of me yet? :P

This week's card is Mipedian Balladeer's Flute

This is an interesting battlegear that I am particularly fond of. It is like a Mugician's Lyre on caffeine! Unlike Mugician's Lyre, you get to begin the game with this face up. So you can put this on a creature that will never see combat so you can get an extra mugic counter. Put this on a Karabba, and you will get an extra 30 points of healing!

Now, a big turn off of this battlegear is that your opponent also gets a mugic counter. This actually isn't a very big weakness. Most decks plan to have just enough mugic couters to pay for their mugic, but after they cast their mugic, there isn't anything left for them to use any counters on. So they get a counter, but they don't have any realy use for it :P.

Card of the Weel: April 10th

This week, let's delve into the new set of Turn of the Tide! I think the Levitaar is a great new battlegear to start talking about the latest expansion of Chaotic.

First off, it is a free 50 speed, which isn't going to hurt your creature at all. Second, it's ability is amazing. Most decks will be dealing you damage with every attack, and in an average battle, you opponent will be making just about as many attacks as you will. So, more or less, you will be dealing an average of five damage with every attack, which ends up making it better than any of the other pieces of battlegear that only five you Element 5. This gives the same damage potential, but for all attacks that deal damage, and you get an additional 50 speed.

So what do you think of it?

Oh, and if anyone can tell me the difference between the picture in the collection for this card, and the real life card, I'll give that player a free Ultimate Warstance code. Remember to give me your Chaotic username with your reply :).

More rule changes

Here are some rule changes that I think most people will have very little trouble with. All are easy to understand and make a lot more sense than their previous counter parts :).

Card of the Week-For Real this Time

Ok, well now that I have had my laughs, let's get on to the card of the week :).

This week's card is Arbeid

I love this guy. He is such a frustrating creature to be up against. He is like two Melody of Mirages in one creature! Plasma Arrows, Allmageddon, Supercooled Rain, all of these cards kneel before the powers of Arbeid. He can turn any of your opponent's large attacks into something as weak as a Spirit Gust attack.

Although he might not be much of a fighter, he is still going to be a great addition to your overworld team. He can save you upwards of 90 points of damage if used on the right attacks, which saves you more energy than a Karabba ever could. So think next time you decide not to put this uncommon overworlder into your team :).

Rate out of ten, say hello, or do whatever you want! Have fun with it people! :).

Card of the Week 4/1
