Relentless Stalker

Relentless Stalker

Relentless Stalker

Type: Character Faction: The Agency
Cost: 2 Skill: 1 Icons: (C) (C)
Game Text:
Willpower. Toughness +1.
When you would uncommit Relentless Stalker from a story, you may choose to not uncommit it until the story is won.
(((C) Struggle))

Set: For the Greater Good
Number: 5



Danigral - 5 out of 5. Once again an excellent defender that can really give your opponent pause. If you have some other combat you can really ensure that your opponent loses 2 guys or overcommits or just doesn't go. Yes, he could be a double-edged sword and a Black Dog can take him out, but this guy is still a great deal for the money.

mnBroncos - 4 out of 5. I really like this guy. He can just go to a story and hold down the fort. He can’t go insane and threatening to damage two characters if your opponent goes there. Then you add on an extra ability that can be good depending on the game state.
Obtuse - 4 out of 5. Solid character at a good price at cost two. Now if only there were, say, a conspiracy card in the game that it might be beneficial to keep a body at through all your opponent’s turn phases...
Kamacausey - 4 out of 5. Great story attacker/defender! He will be a headache to deal with. Good icon lineup and sweet ability.
livingend - 4 out of 5. He ain’t the nuts, but he certainly ain’t the pits either. If anything, his presence will force through some nice unopposed stories and in case your opponent isn’t fortunate enough to have removal at the ready he’s going to lock up one story entirely. Verdict: The go-2 drop (hue hue) for any hunter deck.
WWDrakey & Ire - 4 out of 5. A really interesting and solid 2 coster, that brings a lot of raw stats onto the board. Relentless, indeed.

Question: why would I choose not to uncommit a character? So that it stays on that story to defend it during my opponents turn? Or maybe because there is some card effect which makes it more difficult to commit for instance? 


I played this card tonight and couldn't really find a good reason to use that ability. Am I missing a great combination?

Agency lacks arcane, so I've found Relentless Stalker allows you to be a bit more aggressive with your story commitments as he can stay behind to defend.  If you happen to win arcane, it's almost like having 2 characters readied for the block.   With Willpower, Toughness +1, CC and adding a combat struggle, Relentless Stalker can prove problematic for certain deck types, namely Cthulhu/Hastur cultists or MU rush.


I've had some good success with Relentless Stalker by boosting him up with an attachment, such as the Sword of Y'ha-tallo or Lightning Gun.  I know most players are down on attachments as they're a 2-for-1 loss when the character is removed from play, but with Willpower and Toughness the Stalker is fairly resilient.  The Lightning Gun can be especially annoying early game.  He's also good against exhaustion or story denial decks.


It might not be an ability you use every turn, but it's come in handy in many of my games.

He's meant to be a great defender. As mentioned above, this is kind of Agency's version of arcane.
