Dark Contagion

Dark Contagion

Dark Contagion

Type: Support Faction: Shub-Niggurath
Cost: 1
Game Text:
Attachment. Curse.
Attach to a character.
Response: after a [Shub-Niggurath] character you control is wounded, wound attached character.
Set: JtUK
Number: 114
Illustrator: David Sourwine


Feels quite fiddly to use an attachment with a conditional trigger rather than just get an event that wounds a character. However, targeted wounding isn't that common so maybe it finds a place if you desperately need a particular character gone. Big problem for me is that unless you have cards that wound your guys you are giving the opponent a choice.

Maybe with Gug?

I can't think of a deck I'd ever run this card in. If it was a passive I might consider it as a way to get past several defences to wounding, as a response its just an awkward and telegraphed way to wound a character.

Considering it comes with Dhole Ant-Lion, it is likely meant to run with it.  It's a way to Concrete and Chains your opponent while killing one of your own characters off.  Yay.


Come to think of it, though, wouldn't this be a decent card to build around your Khopesh?  I can imagine a deck of extra-tough Shub cards and a Khopesh with the capacity to kill off characters with "Toughness +1" if need be.
