2 hammers on a first turn card is awesome enough, but the ability doesn't say once per turn. Looks like swarm of bats will be sticking around on the board forever!
yea but u gotta keep your opponets discard pile full to keep the effect working which might be a problem
"Before Elves, before Dwarfs, before Men, the Old Ones arrived upon this world. Then came Chaosthe Great Plan of the Old Ones was unmade. We are the last of their servant,only by our hand shall the Great Plan be restored, with the total defeat of the usurping younger races."
It doesn't say opponent.
I could see this in an orc rush deck. Slam it down in the quest zone, puke out a bunch of 1 drops into the battlefield until you hit your bats. Not to mention the bats will be filling your KO pile with units too.
To me this is one of the better cards that have been previewed.
Wow, I guess this is how we are supposed to completely shut down Reclaiming the Fallen decks. As long as I have this and an Undead unit in play, my opponent will never have a unit in their discard pile.
CASTEL is awesome card, moody art, 2 hammers and insane good ability. My Bats and Blood Dragons are waiting...
"The best ideas often come from the worst minds."
Strangely…I see this good in a High Elf Eltharion centric deck with Elven Scouts. You could toss a ton of extra tokens on the card in a hurry.
4 cost would be pretty steep though
You could get lucky with scout camps and the new HE unit that lets you search for and put into play a quest.
Im not to thrilled to see the Castle. Blood dragon knight, Von Carstein and swarm of bats are already soo good.

The decks FFG put into their news feed actually seem pretty good, I'm looking forward to the new pack coming out so I can give them a shot. Who knows, maybe they'll revitalize my interest in High Elves (one even uses Eltharion, who I love).
Primarily an LCG player. Hit me up if you're in the Baltimore area, I'd love to play!
Can you only use Dragon's Lair at the beginning of your turn? Or can I play this card and then immediately use Lair to search my deck?
After reading it again I think you can only play it at the beginning of your turn. Not as good, but still not bad.
You can indeed only use Dragon's Lair at the beginning of your turn, but with Purged by Flame, at least you can trigger it on your next turn after playing it.
