Most exciting runner card in a while, IMO. Good addition to most Shaper decks, especially if you're playing Pawnshop. Between Inti to break the small barriers and this to break the larger ones you have a pretty efficient suite. And you aren't bogged down by running 2 or even 3 of these because you don't mind drawing the extras for later.

While I knocked Snowball, this does look good to me. Scavenge is another good match for it. I haven't played with it yet but I do think this fracter looks very good.

I haven't played with it yet but I do think this fracter looks very good.

It is pretty good, particularly with recursion. If you also use Scavenge and Pawnshop in your deck there is decent synergy there.


The dog breakers are pretty decent and many feel that this one is the best of the lot. I don't necessarily agree with it being the best of the three, but it is a viable way to save some inf spent on Corroder in Shaper if your deck is tight on inf, in the right deck.


I just wish they had 1 inf or even 2 inf costs so as to make it feasible to use the dog breakers together.




Meanwhile the Professor sits in the corner and chuckles.

Yes, loving it with recursion: it's a great target for Scavenge.


Given how much they like recursion, running all three dog breakers might require too much overhead in that department if the inf were lower (obviously context dependent).


I'm trying this thing in a Nasir deck, instead of the more obvious Battering Ram. I quite like it -- tossing it on Dinosaurus for a combo I call "The Green Dragon," although "Dino-Cerberus" and "Lady-Saurus" are also catchy . . . still, "The Green Dragon" seems to fit a big green dog matched to a goofy green dinosaur toy . . .


What works here is that, since you're doing recursion anyway, it's not a deal breaker if Dinosaurus doesn't come out before Lady -- it's not a Yog.0.Saurus situation, with Lotus Fields everywhere, and you can always boost the dog.


The Green Dragon, however, gets through Eli with a token only. Same too, a Wall of Thorns, so the boost in strength really gets this thing in range for some of the tougher Barriers: base-strength Hadrian's Wall? 2 credits and a token. That's good stuff, especially for Nasir, who can get a lot off of Personal Workshop with the 8 credits he'll net in that match up.


The Green Dragon costs 9 total, so the same as a Morning Star with a Datasucker, but I think it's at least as good as Morning Star (and I love Morning Star): The Green Dragon takes up 3 fewer MU (counting the Datasucker), for starters, busts Barriers up to strength 5 for free (Morning Star costs 1), and isn't limited by purging. It does require some recursion overhead and is vulnerable to Blacklist, but this is a very strong Fracter for Shaper generally (and obviously no one else, since the repetition of cards and splash values use up a lot of resources), and specifically has a lot of potential for Nasir's interesting cash flow situation.
