Solid card, hits a fatty and clears away the chaff, not a great card but a solid one.

Great aggressive unit, and has "pseudo-AoE" to help ease Ork issues with swarms. Definitely a strong choice for Ork decks and likely a good splash for IG and Chaos as well.

Am I right in thinking that this extra damage dealt would be increased by 1 (to 2) if Zarathur is present at the same planet?

Yep. You're dealing damage. It's pretty clear-cut.

Awesome, because it's ASSIGNED damage instead of just that from an attack.

Great card, even better with Zarathur but a solid 4/5 for sure.

Overpriced for just a command icon. 4/5 with Zarathur. 3/5 in other cases.

Excellent 4 drop. Scary for the enemy warlord. Very good with straken. 

I like it most with Zarathur.  A great splash (1 or 2) into Chaos for a decent hitter.

I'd actually go more with Atrus' suggestion. While the damage output is of course better with Zarathur, the context is different. Consistent big attack and consistent multi-target kills is a flaw of Straken's own faction (while they're very good at other things), and this card helps fill both those slots, with the  6 attack and splash of 1, with survivability of this mere 3HP unit being enhanced by AM options like Rockcrete Bunker and Steel Legion Chimera.


For Zarathur, otoh, while the card in isolation is more powerful its less needed. Zarathur has multiple options for taking out hordes of low toughness opponents (which is one reason why he's one of the best anti-Kith options) and fewer means to preserve the 3HP of this unit, especially if he intends to be messing with ork kannon and warpstorms. Likewise, Zarathur has easier access to single point big damage.


Even so, for both Warlords, I'd say there's better options in the 4-5 cost slot. For Straken, the Assault Valkyrie doesn't hit as hard but is much more resilient and reliable. For Zarathur, either the Bloodletter or Plaguebeast are probably the only 4+ costers worth running at present, thanks to the optimal low-cost deck shape and the discountability of daemon options..

Never sees play these days.
