Morning Star’s Cousin & Flame Guard’s Son

Summary: 2 New Cards.  Although I have not seen their pictures, based on their names I speculate both are simple variation of Set.1 cards: Morning Star and Partmole Flame Guard.

112. Flame Guard Recruit (C)

Summon/Activation – 1/1
HP/Attack – 2 / 0+

Attack – front & back
Counter – front & back
Blindspot – Left and Right

Partmole Training Soldier adds 2 to its Attack if at least one target creature is on a Water filed.

176. Biolith Iron Ball Soldier (UC)

Summon/Activation – 3/2
HP/Attack – 4 /1

Attack – Two fields in front
Counter – front
Blindspot – Back

– Enemy creatures on two fields in front of Biolith Iron Ball Solider will add 2 to its mana cost. (including newly summoned creatures.)

    Good another cheap biolith creature that’s quite useful. With it’s attack does it mean it hits both squares in front of it in one attack or you just chose one or the other like a tree haunt?

    I’ve just noticed my spelling error but can’t edit my comment. Maybe something that can be added to improve things?

    The Flame Guard Recruit seems like a really good card. Not as good as catapult or Flame Lizards in Set1, but it can potentially kill a priestess in 1 shot and try again for a 1 hit kill for 1 mana. Even better when the priestess is top left and u can gain the field bonus and potentially make good use of their 2 way attack.

    very strong card IMO

    Yikes, one more card that add to mana cost of other creatures. We have seen many expensive mana cards as well. I really hope that there will be more mana generator in the other half of the cards we know nothing about yet. Otherwise, we will be starving for mana all the time…

    Some cards like the squeletton and catapult, but for the other elements would be nice too…

    @Spazzfish,

    I’m not sure about whether it attacks two fields simutaneously or you need to select one. As the source was purely text without actual card picture. My guess it two direction attack like Imperial Guard; otherwise, the card seems a bit too weak.

    Also your suggestion is great, but unfortunately I don’t think I have much control over the comment feature since it is part of this blog…

    @Furo25
    I think you are right. This card is particularly good against dodge attempt possessing creatures like Alhuja Priest. Since the casting cost is only 1.

    @Real Gambler

    Sorry to inform, but with the latest post, I believe I have pretty much revealed 95% or so of entire Set.2. So there is no easy mana gaining cards. But with combo. there seem to be a few combo. allows you to gain additional mana.

    speaking of mana “gaining cards”…. what about attack reducing…

    I’d like to see a list of all the cards that reduce the cost of others on the board.

    That could actually be the way to look at it Real Gambler…

    For example like the Law of Absolute from set one… how it reduces other bioliths when on the board… well in set two… looks like there are some cards that reduce the cost to attack or summon to the field.

    @houshasen
    Anyway you could whip up a post that highlights this with cards from set one and two? Cards that reduce your cost to play other cards/attack etc.

    @EYS

    That’s a great suggestion. In one of Recap series, I was going to actually summarize Mana Generators i.e. including Mana reducer. I’ll try to put it up within next couple days
