Description[edit | edit source]

Opening Gambit: Deal 1 damage to everything (including itself).

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Blistering Skorn is an interesting and powerful card in two approaches. First, it is an accessible global AoE (Area of Effect) spell. This easily deals with one health minions such as Abyssal Crawler, Bloodtear Alchemist, Flameblood Warlock, and Wraithlings. Further, its global AoE can be used to hit key break points: this card in conjunction with a basic General attack can remove most 2-drops. Second, it damages itself and allies. This can be used to the players advantage by allowing multiple procs for cards like Twin Fang. It also makes him a consistent target for Amplification as well as an immediate heal target for Zir'an players to set off healing effects.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

Gauntlet Strategy[edit | edit source]

Blistering Skorn is a solid choice in Gauntlet; it has a beefy body to trade into other cards well, or deal a reasonable amount of damage to the opposing general. Its most important aspect comes in its ability to remove Heartseekers, the bane of non-Reva Gauntlet players everywhere.

Balance Changes[edit | edit source]
