Hystrix - 7/3 with Poison 1, min 0 (ability) and +2 Life (bonus)

- A solid 7 power, adding to Jungo's solid 3*.
- The first poison card with a min of 0, enabling kill potential! Something people have wanted for some time smiley
- With +2 life, he can really widen the gap in terms of life.
- Because his poison can actually kill, Hystrix is useable in the later part of the game, if forced. Not recommended though.
- Poison 0 = interesting bluff

- His poison, as cool as min 0 is, is pretty weak.
- SoA or SoB don't kill this card (SoA hurts a lot more though), but really wear down the usefulness

Overall: 7/10. Hystrix suffers from a illness that many have, High-Competition Syndrome. With Radek, Nyema, and many other good 3* on the field, the need for Hystrix is limited. His poison is cool, but I I'd rather use poison 2,min 1 over poison 1, 0 personally. Still a good card and you may find uses for him

they should just remake the Freaks if this is how they are going to treat poison cards. i am disapointed.

Hystrix is a pimp at level 1.
Level 3 makes me want to keep him at his first, coolest stage.
Rate green if you prefer him at 1 smiley

Something I noticed. Look at this scenario:

My opponent has 8 health left, but has already been inflicted with Hystrix's poison. Askai gets through with his damage, doing 7 and taking my opponent down to 1. At the end of the turn, I win because of poison damage.

In this scenario, Askai gets credit for the KO in regards to missions. Just a tidbit of info for you guys. Not all that handy, but good to know.

Rate up if this is info you didn't know!

What happens when I KO my opponent, while Im poisoned by Hystrix (R) and having only 1 life left?

We both die at the same time? Draw?

Yes, it's a draw by KO. I tried it just now with someone.
Nothing special tho
