More exciting cards in the Wolves vs. Rats deck! Six new card previews!
      by Seppel

We're back from Origins Game Fair! It was a long week, and we're back with more card previews!

Let's dive in to some exciting cards in the Wolves vs. Rats deck!

...

Anybody remember that card called Thrust?

...



Well, here's its wolven cousin!

...



For the price of 1 more AP, you can deal twice the pleasure of a regular Thrust! Make sure you've assembled a good pack, first!

...



Your first reaction is probably, "Why would I ever play this card?"

Wolves are all about strength in numbers, so why would you give them tons of AP?

You might want to look closely at this card's effect. There's something very devious about this card.

Did you spot it yet?

It says: "During your refill step." Your opponent is only getting AP on your turn. That means they can spend it on little more than defending against your rats.

And rats get bonuses if enough Furres put out.

And rats lure Furres into bed.

Take Slickslit for example:

...



Slickslit lets you grind through your deck until you find the cards you want! Many rats have a "Lure" skill, which ranges from luring 1 to 3 Furres into bed!

Not to be outdone, the Wolves have their own way of drawing free cards:

...



You know which tribe brings multiple Furres into the scene in a single turn? Wolves.

You know which tribe doesn't? Rats.

Also, take note that Drum Circle works on every turn. So if you can surprise a Furre into the scene on an opponent's turn, you could be drawing cards on their turn also!

Even though both tribes have vastly different tactics, it looks to be an even match between these tribes. For fairness, they each get their own version of a dual-gender Haven card:

...



...



Both of these cards cost 13 AP to play, yet you only get 10 AP per turn. So what gives? Look at the first skill on each card: show your opponent some wolves or rats from your hand, and the cost of these cards drops dramatically -- from 13 AP to 11 AP, then to 9 AP, then to 7 AP if you show off three cards to your opponent!

If you've got a lot of wolves or rats in your deck, these two cards are a great way to accelerate your tribe!

Which card is your favorite? Tell us about it in the comments below!

Some nice new cards to refresh my Rat deck.
Hmmm...I'm going to have to consider some things.

I love how crafty these cards can be! A good dash of deviousness is perfect for any deck!
