This card alone makes it worth getting 3 core sets for if you're going to play Dark Eldar. so many possibilities with this card.

Best DE card in the set, routing a unit is insanely good, and at the moment little to no uniques out there, will probably get weaker with time as we see more uniques on the upper end of the curve

This card is so good...combine a Dark Eldar and Eldar deck to rout a bunch of them, then play the Eldar event Doom next turn to nuke many of your opponent's units all at once!

Awesome control event, I think this is a definite three-of in any Dark Eldar deck and probably any deck with allied DE as well. There are very few games where this ability will not be relevant at some point.

3x every deck...if it said exhaust, would be good(for 1 resource) but routing a non unique for 2 resources, its broken :)

Staple Dark Eldar card that also is a staple in Eldar for sure.


Because of it's fantastic effect, 5/5.

2 resources for such an effect is ok. Sadly it doesn't affect uniques, warlords and it's just a combat action (routing before command phase would be a thing).

Just one shield, but I don't think anyone will use it in such manner.

It proves exceptional to rout an ambush appeared on a deserted first planet.

4/5 (no uniques and combat act only)

Even with Worr and Backlash, this card is pure quality.
