Everyone in the Shadow Nexus Discord server literally cannot stop talking about this card. It's basically just a better Bahamut. But this is definitely one of the things Dragon actually needs to be good, because they don't have much good amulet removal. Even at 6 PP this card is still amazing.

If Albert's the problem, why not Albert himself rather than Maid Leader's tutoring ability?


If Albert is hit outright, it still wouldn't change the fact people can run Decks specifically TO search out Albert and only Albert.

Control Sword has Albert but trying to run it without important Commanders like Aurelia and Amelia reduces its defensive ability, and that's the only aspect Control Sword has, due to its lack of good removal and healing which other control decks tend to sport. Albert-only decks lean towards an aggressive or midrange feel.

I'd like to put this into perspective a little bit.


When I used to play (I don't anymore), Control Sword would have Frontguard Generals (which is a Commander, but you'd only run 1 to reduce the risk of Maid Leader not pulling Albert), Goblinmounts, and Healing Angels to get that actual Control feeling. They would still run Albert because Albert is horrendously broken. Maybe a Tsubaki or two. The MR Deck has 3 Tsubaki and 1-2 Fangblade Slayer to clean up the late game, which is an extremely good card. But it still runs Albert because Albert is horrendously broken.


And all of those Sword Decks run 3 Maid Leader because they want to search aggressively for Albert. It's their win condition. It's not Albert's fault he gets tutor'd so easily, it's Maid Leader.

Still doesn't solve the fact that Earth Sigil is still horribly inconsistent. Yeah, you can search out Earth Rites via Dwarf, but what Dirtcraft actually needs is something that can search out the actual Sigils. Yeah, this can become a great beatstick, but you WANT to be able to have those Price of Magics/Teachings of Creation/Red-Hot Rituals/Juno's in a time of necessity.


Honestly, I think this card is terrible and doesn't solve Dirtcraft's consistency problems.
