Grifter's blade? Thoughts?
Posted By: Kryptnyt (1/28/2011 8:10:26 AM)


Uhh... Grifter's Blade can be played and equipped at instant speed, unlike Strider Harness. However, I concur that Grifter's Blade doesn't combo so well unless you want to go "Surprise! I blocked it after all!"

I thought it was hilarious during the 2010 POTY playoff when Guillame Matignon played this, had no equipment in play, and then Brad Nelson Arrested this XD. Rich Hagon, who was commenting on this match, made a remark about virtual card advantage.

I wish we had Lightning Greaves in the format so this would actually be constructed worthy.

All that aside, is anyone else reminded of the turret guns from the game Portal?

I would have loved me some (functional) reprint of Ashenmoor Gouger, but still 4/4 for 3 is something that has me thinking how many (living) equipments do I need in my RDW to make this card work.

ASSEMBLE THE ROOKIES! but for the love of god dont give it a piston sledge!

strider harness is just as fast as Grifter's Blade, is in the same block, a common, and the drone doesn't sit around for a turn as a removal target.
Downside is you need to hit your first 4 land drops instead of 3.
Piston Sledge would be my weapon of choice. A 7/4 swinging on turn 4. turn 3 if your 1 drop is a BoP

yes grifters blade can be played and equiped at instant speed. but the order in which you play the cards is different

1. land + ?
2. land + ?
3. land + strider harness OR land + drone
4. land + drone OR grifter's blade

either way your swinging on turn 4 with a 5/5
grifters blade makes it harder to react to the equipment.
strider harness makes it harder to react to the creature.

This artwork reminds me of the turrets from Portal.
However, stable card. A 4/4 with manacost 3, which has to be equipped first is a fair deal. Especially if you have a Brass Squire in play.

Just stick a Trusty Machete on him and you can be swinging on turn four with a 6/5. How often do you get to do that?

Has anyone mentioned Puresteel Paladin yet? I can see our friend here biting someone's backside after a quick on-curve Skinwing, Grappling Hook or even Grafted Exoskeleton to the face.
