Cold Blood(Wicked Carver): When one of your creatures dies from an attack, this creature gains 50% Attack and moves to the top of the action queue
Cradle to the Grave: After dying, resurrect with 1 health and move to a random position on the Action Queue. Does not work if multiple living creatures have this ability.
Before trying this out, I figured it would be strong, but I did not realize HOW strong. Cold blood is not additive with multiple procs, it appears to be multiplicative. I won’t pretend to know the damage formula but every turn, wicked carver deals 3x the damage of the previous turn. He gets infinite turns, too, because the mite with ‘cradle the grave’ dies every enemy turn. The ai will literally attack the 1 hp guy every single turn, soaking all the damage and skyrocketing my carver.
With Topaz Attunement (Creatures start at top of action queue), I’ll always go first. I can fill the rest of my monster slots with counter-counters, looters and spell casters safely.
This isn’t to say I’ll never die (because I will) but with the right supporting spells and a monster that scorns, its very rare. It appears to work at any depth (currently at 100)
