Card of the Week

Welcome back for what will hopefully be the first in a long line of installments of Chaotic Card of the Week! This week, lets talk about Choral of the Apparition.

This beautiful card is probably on of the biggest boosts for Danian Compost decks. Not only can you use it to get back one of your big fighters, but you also get to get a compost mandiblor and send it to the discard pile to get use of it's ability.

Some players may be turned off by the two counter cost, but it really isn't that big of a deal. If you have an Illexia in play, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. You got one counter before because one of your danians has to be in the discard pile, you get another counter by sacrificing another Mandiblor, and you will get another counter when the new Mandiblor that comes back is sent to the discard pile again. So, this mugic ends up paying for itself in the long run, so you should have no worries about playing it!

So what do you think of this card? Is it underpowered, overpowered, underplayed, over played? All constructive comments welcome :).

Due to the limitation of sacrificing an unengaged mandiblor only it's amazing, the 2 cost is laughably cheap really. Danians have plenty of ways around that, Illexia, Lore, Lore: Ancestral Caller, Lobanne, Khritlaan, Ivelaan, the list just goes on and on. Heck, Strain of Infection, now any Danian can cast it.

But, it does depend on the army, Compost is tricky to use it in depending on whether or not you use 1 or 2 key attacking Mandiblors, using 1 means that late game it becomes very dangerous to use. In a Nimmei army, where your 1-2 attackers are right up front it's perfect. Pair it with Elna and you have a perfect set up for a revival, even if it is just the 1.

Hey Landon! Don't worry about being new, we were all new once. And I think you're right, a lot of forethought was probably used during the production of this card. It's just so darn awesome :).

Well i love this mugic, i mean come on Getting Neekwin back that is boosted by Makanaz now is scary to any one(unless you use the new Lore:D) This mugic made my opponents really angry because they just defeated Neekwin now they have to do it again, now because i also use Talisman of The Mandiblor i get him back the third time. Thats when most people Forfeit.

I just got my own copy of this a few days ago in a trade. It's probably my current favourite mugic. If it wasn't for my laptop having been broken and my chaotic supply getting cut off (T_T) I would use it all the time!

It looks prettiful too :) But it's a great way to recover in case lores chamber of recall comes up early on or something. You could even revive a makanaz and sacrifice and ivelaan, then makanaz gets coded and it's as if the chamber never came up :)

I love it, 10/10 :) That cost is no problem since Ivelaan has two counters and is in most compost armies.
