Legacy Lost ~ Preview 4 ~ An Unlikely Partnership
Nyarlathotep’s had her stint as a ruler and makes the jump to a resonator (much like the old Grimm cluster days) in Legacy Lost. She costs two for an impressive 700/700. However, she only has a Limit of 1, though that’s hardly a problem when coupled with Lumia. She also has two Awakening abilities, one for one light will, and one for one fire will. The light one provides some helpful removal. It will remove a resonator from the game for as long as Nyarlathotep remains in the field. Of course that may not be for very long, so using it as a guaranteed removal effort against your opponent’s key resonator isn’t advisable. However it can buy you a turn, and also help you abuse your own resonators upon entry effects. Drop Nyarlathotep, remove your own Hook (for example). Then attack with Nyarlathotep, remove her at end of game with Lumia, thus returning Hook and setting off his ability again, then return Nyarlathotep with her limit counter back. Nyarlathotep’s fire Awakening ability, oddly enough, provides a significant amount of cost effective value. With this Awakening ability you’ll be able to play a light or fire chant with total cost three or less from your hand for free. That is some great value. We’ll see that L2 has some fantastic light/fire spells to utilize with this ability.
Here’s something unusual. A non-wind resonator with Quickcast, and a good one at that. 700/700 for a total cost three is alright, Quickcast makes the card more likable for sure. What makes this card really great though, is it’s upon entry ability. If the card was played from your hand you’ll be able to remove a resonator you control from the game and then return that card rested. Essentially this is another way to gain the benefits of Lumia’s ability and even helps you set up for Lumia’s ruler side remove from game ability. To take our good friend Hook again as an example, phase out Hook when Priest of Divine Protection enters the field, then return it to the field and set off his effect. Then remove it again with Lumia’s ability (since it will enter the field rested with Priest of Divine Protection’s ability.) As the card’s name suggests you can also drop this card on your opponent’s turn to remove a resonator from harm’s way, perhaps saving it from destruction via a Lightning Strike or the like. The fact that this card can be used both offensively and defensively makes it versatile and a fantastic asset.
Another fantastic multi-attribute spell Crimson Ray will slam a player or J/resonator for 600 life and then heal you for 600 life. Burn decks are sure to be grateful for this one, as the life gain will help them soak up a little extra damage, enabling them to survive long enough to burn through their opponent’s life. This is also a great spell to free cast with Nyarlathotep’s fire Awakening, but even on it’s own it is a useful chant.
