  1. Harsh Melody: When you draw 1 or more cards during your turn, you may place 1 exhaustion token on this unit to place a number of wound tokens equal to this unit's attack value on a target unit.
  • Attack 3
  • Life 3
  • Recover 2


  • Combos are really hard to pull off. But one of my favorite combos is:

    • Attack with River Skald
    • Trigger Empower, increasing Skald's attack by 1 and drawing 1 card
    • Card draw triggers River Skald's Harsh Melody ability and deals 4 damage to a unit (exhausting the Skald; however because it was already declared as an attacker, it will still deal attack damage)
    • In response to the exhaustion token placed by Harsh Melody, trigger Gravity Training, giving the Skald +1 attack and life with Enhanced Strength
    • Resolve the Skald's attack (attack value for this attack is now 5), and place a second exhaustion token on the Skald

    At the end of the round, remove all exhaustion tokens (thanks to Enhanced Strength) and do it again next round. For extra fun-times, you can throw Crescendo in the mix, too, which brings up the total damage dealt from a single attack to 12, spread across up to 3 targets. d(°∀°d)
