Herbalist Analysis and Giveaway - Why you need this underrated card in your deck

avatar

Welcome to my third giveaway!

Hey everyone, Today's giveaway is inspired by the lovely veterinarians that have been helping diagnose and fix up my amazing pup. In the honor of everyone that dedicates their profession to helping people and animals I'll be giving away herbalist. Feel free to skip below for contest instructions but if you have time I'd like to explain why I think this highly undervalued card is a must have for you life deck.

Just Look At Those Upgraded Stats

For starters, low mana cards will always be some of the most useful cards in the game. At 2 mana Herbalist packs a real punch when upgraded. Cleanse at level 3 can be used in early leagues and is a game changer for poison matches. Seriously, no one uses cleanse with poison and this 2 mana card almost always gets me the win. Where herbalist really starts to shine is at level 8. Triage, the ability to heal a back line monster is an incredible skill for a 2 mana card and not one that too many other cards give. Cap all this off with a ranged attack and decent enough health for a 2 mana card and you have a real undervalued banger for life decks.

.....Now, onto the giveaway! Bonus Ant Miners included again this week!

  2. Thats it! Both winners will be chosen by a random comment picker (filoz.info/picker) and I will send the cards to them.

As for the question, my favorite is Ant Miners itself.
I play a lot with fire splinter and Malric Inferno, so meelee cards are important for me. Ant Miners makes a great last resort if the enemy doesn't have sneak cards, as it will end up being your last stand with a lot of HP.

Wow I won an ant miners! Thank you very much :)

Damn, I did not know that Herbalist has triage at level 8. Looks like I'll have to gradually stack up on Herbalist. If I can still join the contest, I'd like to join for the Herbalist one! @mozzie5

My favorite card that has an animal / insect with it is definitely fire beetle with its base HP and the snipe ability, it is a good pick for range attacks.

Favorite animal card has got to be the Furious Chicken. The concept reminds me of Legend of Zelda, A Link to the Past. Now, if I could only get mine leveled to where it has the 1 attack; since I seriously doubt they'll ever make it so a bunch of them swarm to attack...lol @half-fast

I usually find a cheap gold herbalist at lv3 for rent. He really save me at poison rule.
As for insect card my favorite is fire beetle at lv3. 2 Range attack at 3 cost with snipe that's insane!!

Thanks for the giveaway :)

I go with the Shark pictured at the water splinter card "Demented Shark". It reminds me on a local comic book character

Battering Ram is my favorite animal card. A low cost card that you can insert in most battles that has the Opportunity ability makes all the difference in most cases. @rorybadory

My fav is Trohilo the Frozen. In bronze games a lot of magic and blue cards are played, so it is great to have a beast to pacify the enemy. It's bigges flaw is it's slow speed, but I would love to it out in games.
On the second place is Flaming Monkey for the inherent childish calmness on the picture :)

Exciting Giveaway! @jakkal

My favorite insect card is actually Ant Miners, in fact, I keep track of how many BCX of it I have on the Discord, where my name is BCX Ant Miners!

The minimum I need is 100 but I actually would love to max the card at some point when I have cards at that level.

Luminous Eagle. It's a decent tank, has reach and fairly decent melee damage.

For e my favorite is Ant Miner. It's one of the first cards I got in rewards and I had an epic win with Ant Miner as the last card standing after accumulating high HP. It's also one of the firsts for me to level 2, (after chain spinners which seems to drop like flies) and I'm hoping to get more so I can even level it up further.

Hi, thanks for the giveaway!
My favorite card is Nightmare, because it was the first card that I got from a chest and I've been playing with it every chance I have. And it is a very good card.

@squishna. I love Giant Roc. He's carrying an elephant! Actually, just remembered as I'm writing this that I dreamed about a bird flying that was about the size of a football field in all dimensions! Thanks for the question to jog that memory! @squishna
