u Artus

Released on Friday 12/08/11

Being shackled to a ball and chain is never much fun. But when it’s for all eternity, it becomes a real drag! Artus the ghost has done everything to rid himself of his load, but to no avail. Out of sheer anger, he started to haunt the Clint City cemetery with a vengeance, until Hel suggested he join the Nightmare clan and Edwin showed him how to vent his anger on the other clans.

Review #6

(Since he still doesn't have his stats up, I'll throw them up for you)

Lvl. 1: 2 Power, 2 Damage & ability unlocked at lvl. 2

Lvl. 2: 5 Power, 3 Damage & - 3 opp. damage min. 2

It's been said countless times, but Artus has almost identical stats to Arno, except Artus has 1 less damage, but 1 more power. Of course, Artus is a tad bit better because of his SOB, shutting down SOA clans (Roots and GHEIST). Although it isn't fair to compare the two.

There's not really any compitition in the clan for him, Nightmare only had 2 other damage reducers; Nistarok and Nerfeniti. But neither really worked, Nistarok having Kolos as compitition and Nerfeniti's weak 5 power coupled with the measly - 2 minimim 3 really didn't make him worth it. But finally, with Artus, Nightmare can have a T1 DR and not have to give up on having Kolos in your deck.

All the other 2 stars in Nightmare are made to do different things, Mawpin with her situational 8 power and Phyllis with her - life. In my eyes, it makes no sense to compare them :)

Now for the Pros/Cons:


+ Great DR. Expecially for a 2 star, -3 min. 2 is quite strong. It can take a 5 damage card down to a 2 (Durrrrr).

+ 2 stars. Easy to fit in your ELO/T1 deck, saving room for the big hitters like Kolos and Oshitsune ect.

+ Playable power. Ludwig from Sakrohm is a playable card with 5 power, so I don't see why Artus is any different?

And that brings us to:


- Only 3 damage. I know it's a DR and it's not supposed to be a powerhouse, but 3 damage isn't gonna kill anything except with a Kolos. But it should be noted he can suprise fury KO with Oshitsune. Just throwing it out there.

All in all, a very good card. I can see it getting a LOT of ELO/T1 play, becasue before Nightmare had no real amazing DRs. This was somewhat of a long-anticipated arrival for the Nightmare clan, and I hope this card turns out to be great.

Artus....the not so friendly ghost
I love how the long winded review says 'no sense in comparing the 2* when umm...the whols epoit is to help ppl choose a specific 2* to use?? :weird::weird:

Anyway lets face it, this guy is good! IMO #1 2* to use for the Nightmare clan in ELO...he's their only viable DR (get over it i hate Nistarok) which is an invaluable ability to have

Personal fave feature......makes Nightmare tiny cuts decks just uber as hell!
Artus/Phyllis/Mawpin/Eadh is such a nice 2* halfdeck....ill be joining it with my Junkz half ;)
