AWESOME?[edit | edit source]
Variax's opening gambit changes the Bloodbound Spell depending which general was chosen.
Cassyva Soulreaper[edit | edit source]
Lilithe Blightchaser[edit | edit source]
Summon two 5/5 Wraithlings nearby your general, then your unbuffed Wraithlings are buffed to 5/5. This effect is not stackable but note that Furious Wraithlings are simply Wraithlings affected by Wraithling Fury; they may still be dispelled into 1/1s.
Maehv Skinsolder[edit | edit source]
Destroy a friendly minion. Summon Husks nearby equal to the attack of that minion. (Nearby means in that case nearby the sacrificed minion)
Everybody Else[edit | edit source]
If any other faction manages to play Grandmaster Variax (through the use of, say, damaging one, Polarity-ing it, playing a Zen'Rui, then playing a Hailstone Prison on it, or just with Bound Tormentor), then it gives them Lilithe's version of the upgraded Bloodborn Spell.
