Hmm... decent card. For 3 twilight (at lowest, and it could even be 5), you can discard a follower, but you also have to spot a Nazgul which will require more twilight. Itís okay if followers are killing you.

The second ability is really overcosted. I mean, playing a 5-cost minion would cost 12! Even a Morgul Whelp would take up 4 twilight. Iíd rather just use Morgul Squealer.

It only gets a 2 (or maybe a 3) from me.

Well, yes, Morgul Squealer is better. If you can spot 6 companions.

I mean, you pay 2*(X+1)+Y, where X is the twilight cost of a Wraith minion to get it from your deck. Y is the Nazgulís cost (depending on conditions, could be 0 to 10). You then have an additional minion in play.

Morgul Squealer needs Z*(X-1)+3, Z being equal to the number of minions played. You then have either: 1 less minion (if you donít play a minion), the same number of minions (if you play 1), or an additional minion if you play 2.

So, it does vary somewhat, although it does seem to be much weaker than it should. Honestly, Iíd rather splash Gollum for Sudden Strike (funner against Smeagol users).

If you can get a Nazgul out for 1 or less (total), or there are not 6 companions, All Life Flees is better for getting the same minion out (unless the pair works well together).
Otherwise, Morgul Squealer would be.


That being said, I do like the picture.

Follower hate gives it a 5. The other special is just in case you donít run against followers. Although discard pile would have been more balanced. Or 0.

True...

I probably would have suggested (for example, if it came up in the DC forum) that it gives the minion Toil 1 or 2...

Good to see a card that is anti-followers, but other than that, it appears mediocre. A 3 from me. Smile
I had to put something here.

Nice card, it takes care of followers, and if your opponent isnít playing them, then itís not completely useless, because you can still use the second ability.

Its the nazgulís hand and a centipede running off, when the hobbits are hiding by the side of the road when they fell out of farmer maggots field and found mushrooms.

This card is lame. Nazgul are the most costly of minions unless you are playing Dark Approach but even still a 3 minimum in the shadow to discard a follower is expensive. Useful. But costly.

The other ability is shocking. Its never really going to be used to play a gul. As its gonna costs at least 10. Thats just daft. Morcs might find a use for it but not when theres squealer.
