perfect escort for the Liberian with the tempest blade. 

Unfortunately you have to attach the Tempest Blade to a unique unit.

An Ion Rifle, otoh, is perfect.


My own reservations to that combo come from the fact that you're spending 3 for the librarian, 1 for the rifle, 5 for the deathguard = 9 resources total, just to be solid at one battle, and the whole expensive combo can be answered with an Archon's Terror, a Doom the next turn, a Vile Laboratory, a Warpstorm, a Flamers hitting the Librarian, Sicarius Chosen moving one piece or the other, or just 2 points worth of AoE.


Thats a lot of vulnerability for a combo that costs 9 resources and requires three matched cards.


Compare that to the simplicity of Honored Librarian + Warlord...

It's extremely fat, but I am not that much impressed by this card for it's cost and what it's impact is in the game. I feel it's win-more when you are allready winning. Not to say it's bad, because it clearly isn't.

So a 3/5.

Reliable and resilient. Three command icons are ok for 5, but I expect more than 2 ATT for such a cost. Ion Rifle can fix this.


Good Rally the Charge target, but worth it?

This card was made right with the firedrake terminators, so stay clear of this one.
