A look at the Tooth and Claw battle pack for Warhammer: Invasion


Welcome to another “card of the week” spotlight for Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game! Tooth and Claw, the third battle pack of The Corruption Cycle, will hit stores shelves on Monday, and with it comes a score of brutal new deck-building options for Order and Destruction players alike. Today, we’ll take a look at one of the devastating new tactics that will be joining the formidable arsenal of Chaos!

The Rip Dere ‘Eads Off combo is a well established staple of many Orc decks. For players with an Orc/Chaos alliance deck, a popular move is to place the massive and expensive Bloodthirster facedown as a development, then later use Rip Dere ‘Heads Off to put him into play for one turn. Sure, you have to sacrifice your new Bloodthirster almost immediately, but you benefit from his attack before he goes, and at very little cost.

For veterans of Warhammer: Invasion, that’s nothing new. But what if you could get a little extra profit out of such a unit before it goes? What if you could sacrifice him early for an additional effect? With Tooth and Claw’s release comes a new Chaos Tactic that, among many other possibilities, allows just that. Brutal Offering lets you sacrifice one of your own units, to deliver a blow that could potentially clear the battlefield!

With Brutal Offering, you can sacrifice one of your own high-powered units to deal damage equal to its power to each unit in all battlefields. Like Troll Vomit or Judgement of Verena, this can be a great way to wipe the slate clean... and if you play it in the midst of a Rip Dere ‘Eads Off combo, you can use Brutal Offering’s effect to sacrifice your Bloodthirster before he’s lost anyway!

Tooth and Claw will hit shelves Monday, so be ready to add this awesome tactic to your Chaos deck... and join us next week for another Warhammer: Invasion spotlight!
