Consuming Grudge

Consuming Grudge is one of my favorite cards. I felt like making a topic about it.

This is the card, if you haven't seen it.

It's especially good at activating these Soul Skills.

Unknown Knight / Aano
Awakened Magic Doll / Esria
Mermaid Aquamancer
Guard Leader / Renally
Red Priestess / Colette

Why is this card so good with multiple revival SSes?

This looks clunky at first glance because it's 3SP, but doesn't really cost 3SP, it only requires 3SP. If your units are units you would like to revive anyways, you would spend 1SP to do so. So if you are reviving 2 units with Consuming Grudge, you're really only losing 1SP in the grand scheme of things, and gaining additional copies of those units.

Multiple revival SSes are powerful gimmicks in their own right anyways. The opponent izcering into one is usually game-endingly terrible for them. They're usually not played because they are inconsistent and sometimes do nothing, but with Consuming Grudge they become more consistent.

But wait! There's more! Consuming Grudge with Assassin SS

This does actually cost 3SP, but unless you're playing against Falkow it will guarantee your Assassin SS successfully goes off, due to the way -1LP skills work.
-1LP skills trigger soul skills before units close. This means, even if your assassin bait Shade is killed during the open phase, if you played Consuming Grudge you can still sacrifice it to your Assassin SS.

These aren't the only possible applications for this card, but I think they're the most powerful, and if you're thinking of playing this card, this is where I would start.

Nice 50 damage that penetrates defense. Shame it's random. Lots of fun things to do with it, and not always expected.

It is also really great with undead since it takes time to trigger your soul skills with that file. Especially fun when you trigger the second shrine leaders SS to increase your undead max health and fully heal them at the same time your opponent plays fire ball :D
