r Moses

Released on Friday 29/06/12

No night at Borgia’s Palace would be complete without Moses and his fairy-like touch on the piano keys to get the show really swinging. But if you ever find yourself at the famous cabaret, be sure not to go with a nasty cough that could risk disturbing his playing. If you do, you might very well run into a dark figure in an alley humming a gospel tune to himself while smoking a cigar and then… Well, let’s just say your coughing woes will be well and truly over.

First development of the 3 of this character’s different developments:

Ability of Moses:

Support: -1 Opp. Life, Min 1

If Moses wins their fight, the number of Life points of the player controlling the opposing character is reduced by 1 up to a minimum of 1 for each character belonging to Moses’s clan and who is also part of their team. Remember that Moses is also taken into account. If the number of Life points of the player controlling the opposing character is lower than or equal to 1, then the ability has no effect.



-12 Opp Attack, Min 8

The opponent’s Attack points are reduced by 12 points or up to a minimum of 8. If the opponent’s number of Attack points are lower or equal to 8, then the ability has no effect.

Is it just me, or does it seem that every single character, no matter how domestic and safe they seem at first sight, can beat you up in an alley?

Actually to all the folk quoting Morgan freeman etc... Oh, the shame...

Sure he's a good actor, but he's not a piano player...

fact 1: He was once cautioned by the Nevada Sherriffs Dept for attempted assault on an audience member who continually coughed and hacked through a performance he was giving at Caesar's Palace because "if I can't hardly hear myself playing how can the audience?"
fact 2: one of his most famous albums (on which he plays piano and electric piano), apart from the "Shaft" soundtrack is called Black Moses

Ladles and Gentlespoons, I give you ...

On the card...

Sure he's weak against SOA, but everyone apart from Gianfranco is in that slot. And I'll take 7/2 -4 life over Oscar anyday... Hell, in Uppers I use 4 stars for 7/4 -3 life

Ah Borgia's Palace a place were you can at one moment listen to a great piano player and the next get murdered in the nearby alley by the same piano player

ATM my favorite 3* he is immune against damage reducers.. in ELO i can 2HKO with him and Avola.
7/6 are great stats for a 3*
7/5 with (min 1) DR
crushes through (defeat: +life) cards
SoA hurts pretty much every card and if you play him smart it should not be a problem.
Montana Bonus is really great and ofcourse SoB hurts this card a bit but with 7 power he is not that weak anyway
my personal rating would be 8.5/10 for ELO

Woops, messed up my review xP Let's try that again.

1*: 4/1
2*: 5/2
3*: 7/2, Support: -1 opp. life min. 1

- 7 power plus Montana bonus = good stuff.
- A possible 6 (or 8 with fury) damage when played early or mid rounds in mono. Great on a three star.
- As mentioned, just three stars. Easy to fit into almost any deck.
- Almost entirely ignores damage reduction, only reduced by a measly 1
- Standard. For those that like that game mode, he's a good pick.

- Entirely reliant on ability to do damage. SOA hurts a lot.
- Also reliant on mono Montana to do max life drain. Half-deck, he only does 3-4 damage on average. Not very helpful.
- Usual Montana weaknesses of SOB or power manipulation.

Grade: 7.8/10. Great card. I gave him an 8 earlier, but realized his ability is a bit more conditional than I thought. Easily replaces Milovan and Veccio, and competes with Sharon for choice 3 star damager. Sadly, he leans really hard on his ability, so he's mono or not at all, and has to avoid SOA like the plague. Otherwise, just play him smart. He can be a great bluff or a solid attacker. Worth having in any Montana deck.
