Bigs are pretty rare.

Combo it with Deep Squid and hope to kill 2/3 units each turn?

In front row of a WK with units with good skills (dion, owl...) or units with 0 atk but a bonus when it's their turn (Rapier Fencer of Regus, Magic Greatsword Soldier...) or in combo with snarf for the switch attack. The first close skill is a shame.

Send the last card (closest to lower right) in your File to the Cemetery if it's a character. Then, return a random unit to its card file and send this unit to the Cemetery.

... it doesn't seem to specify any limitations on this skill
also... i'm guessing this unit cems itself after returning
am i right in thinking that this card may return itself? :shock:

The way it's worded, it can return itself I think.

It's too easy to disrupt. opponent targets the clown accepting the attack debuff and tanks the hilarious 40 dmg that deep squid dishes out as lvl6. you cannot protect a 30 hp unit that well in a nonrush type deck especially not midgame (and no way it gonna work early game, end game I dont have to discuss I guess). And the 3sp skill is just.. no thanks. As a mid big falkow you have already huge issues to gain control over the field. You can not field squishy units for that. That cat is not a mid/big thats for sure.

one could think about a support for plundering pirate but dub is just much much better for that.
I don't see any of the cards in expack really good for that card.

There are many falkow cards that look good on the first sight with this (I was thinking eg about strom wizardess and battlemage of regus ) but the thing is with 30 hp all you have to do is target this card and the rest of your units becomes useless.

And for WK he is just not worth at all. WK needs card retreaval and survivality much more than dmg support, and for working in a lvl4 he doesnt give much benefits at all. Gosh even Vordore and Rozari does more for WK then this card (In case you dont want to use Volfied...).

I think this is also something more general about sorcerers. They all have a joke hp not giving you any kind of security to your field presence at all, capped low attack, spintensive and on a top of it offensive with absolute no control potential. The squishiness stands absolut in no relation to the offensiveness (=fieldwipe on next turn) and the general perfomance of these cards. I just dont get this tribe in general ...

He goes along with augments and chaos lawtia/falkow. Combos with False Mother, Augmented Sorcerer, Red Phoenix - South, Corruption, Ex-Forest Sorceress. He's not meant to survive. You use his action to set high Hp enemies below 40. Get him to close, and use False Mother to target any enemy at attack 0 and do 40 direct. I want to make this work but I don't have the game experience to construct a competitive file.

You dont have experience bc thatll never work and if it does, killing a unit for all that work is not worth it.
Like rom said, they just released this unit as is. It was a design failure in jp. It only sold in jp bc of an op ss which was nerfed coming here. No intentional combos like with Rivera.
