Haidar Haven: Loinblazer, Haidar Marksman, and Pride Father!
      by Seppel

It's been a while since the Haidar lions have received a piece of the spotlight. Let's take a look at just how powerful the tribe-without-a-special-skill can be!

First up is Loinblazer!

Loinblazer (yes, Loin, not Lion) makes all your lions ready for action faster by decreasing their costs by 1 AP. It may not seem like a lot, but it is! Especially if you have 2 or 3 Loinblazers in play.

You may have started to notice a trend with other lion cards such as Haidar Scout and Lion's Den:

Lions like getting things for free.

Free lions, Free Havens. Just about the only thing they don't get for free is entering bed -- that's rat and wolf territory.

So they get things for practically free. "Big deal," you might say. Well, what if I told you that they get bonuses for playing free stuff?

Haidar Marksman takes steady aim on any new Haven that comes into play. We've given bonuses like this before, but never so high! Hir PEs jump up to 6/7/6/8 if you play any Haven that isn't a Home Haven! Very impressive!

I'm sure a few of you still aren't convinced that the lions are a formidable force. Even if it's free (or at least ridiculously cheap), playing a non-Home Haven isn't a very common thing that happens in a game of Furoticon.

What if I told you that there was a very cheap lion that lets you take advantage of all those bonuses? ...twice? ...and it has insane stats for its cost?

Pride Father is a Herm that has the same stats as Leonardo but for the cost of a Carriage Retainer. Its extra cost may seem like a disadvantage, but it's perfect for the Haidar lions! Suddenly you can bump Haidar Marksman's PEs up to 9/10/9/11 and swing at your opponent for 11 pleasure as early as your third turn!

Aggressively overpower your opponents with the Haidar lions!

Tribes of Tanglebrook will be released June 15th at Anthrocon! Preorder now!

I feel like a totaly noob. I can't tell what cards are good, and which ones aren't. I can't wait to try the game though!

Loinblazer is rather powerful. A lot of nice synergy in lions, I'll have to look them over

I can see so much potential with Lion swarming :3
