I meant for the eternal servant marker he can't get it right?

Yeah, malacoda can't be a servant because he's not undead and he is legendary.

When your servant dies if you pay it's cost, then you get to reanimate it. This means it comes back into play at the end of the round. This absolutely saves you the full action it would normally take to play it.

That's cool then.  Makes it much more solid.   

Overall I had hoped for a little more "wow" factor from the Necro, but it will obviously come down to his support cards to define just how cool he will be.  Still look very forward to trying him out.

As for the Plague Master, it says creatures with a "Poison counter".  So...that means Cripple, Tainted, and Weak and that's it? 


The grand total of Poison condition counters I am currently aware of is Cripple, Tainted, Weak, Rot, and the Ichthellid Larva from this expansion.

As to the direct damage potential of the Necro - add in a Ghoul Rot, a Force Crush, and a charged Altar of Skulls and you go up to 13 points/round!

The Necromancer is clearly the king of direct damage he can even leverage Morlock's Torment for a potential 7 direct damage in one turn.


Moloch's Torment is Warlock only.

Hopefully the Necro is getting more ways to inflict poison conditions on things.  We've already seen the Wraith that inflicts Weak, but I'm sure there will be more.  I'd like to see an enchantment that is like "Plague Rot" or something that allows a creature to inflict Rot with it's attacks.  That would be cool.

Wait till you see the rest of the Zombies. I think there are at least a couple you'll be particularly interested in.

Nice!  I was going to say that I was hoping we'd see something like "Plague Zombie".  Can't wait  :)

The Plague Master ability also gives Necromancer more reason to pick Drain Soul over Drain Life.  Its a bit more costly, but puts Taint markers on a target that he can start doing extra damage from.

Another aspect of Poison Immunity is that he is immune to Ghoul Rot and Poison Blood, as well as Taint/Weak/Cripple/Rot effects from opponents. 

Necro vs Necro is kind of funny because both mages and most of the creatures on the table are immune to each others poison effects.

Needs a cheap level 4 to eternally sacrifice to altar feeding graveyard.

Idol of Pestilence, Malaconda, Poisonous Air, assume Plagued is in this set, this Immunity could be sick. Creates a big living vs nonliving schism though in match ups.

Hmmm. Zombie Minions are such good value with Graveyard that from those cards seen only I am definitely favouring the zombie sub deck from both sides.

Show us more! Please?

Holy crap, didn't realize this until just now.

Put out a Sacrificial Altar and summon a nice big creature. Then summon a cheap level 2 creature and make him your eternal servant. Then repeatedly sac the level 2 right after attacking with him to give your big creature +2 melee and piercing every round. Crazy combo!

Well, it does require re-summoning a 8+ Mana creature each turn. Probably not going to be your primary line of play.
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

A zombie minion costs 7, less with graveyard. Eternal servant it. Any turn when no creature is gonna feed your graveyard and you really need that 2 extra mana to summon what you want say next deployment, after attacking with it you sac it to altar to give an attack +2 melee +2 piercing and gaining 2 in your graveyard. so you are paying 5 mana of a used and abused creature and a free ready marker action for that timed effect anywhere in the arena like Hand. It ain't broken but it's neat recursion. Especially if he was gonna die soon anyway or you needed to upgrade your servant to the next big thing you summon and needed that mana rebate.

My point was that Necro would love something like

"sacrificial minion", level 4 undead, cheap cost say 7, worse stats than the zombie minion

That is how to abuse the recursive engine!

I would be surprised if eternal servant is not used for recursion shenanigans.
