A Warhammer: Invasion Card of the Week
Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game | Published 22 June 2010

Welcome back to the Warhammer: Invasion card of the week. The Burning of Derricksburg Battle Pack will be on shelves early next week, and with Wednesday’s announcement of the upcoming March of the Damned expansion, there’s plenty to talk about.

March of the Damned, releasing this fall, has garnered great enthusiasm from Warhammer: Invasion fans since its announcement. Today, we’ll take a closer look at one of the new keywords coming your way in this exciting expansion pack: Necromancy.

The March of the Damned rules state that Necromancy “allows a unit to be played from the discard pile as though the unit was in its owner’s hand. The unit enters play from the discard pile, and if it is still in play at the end of the turn, it is put on the bottom of its owner’s deck.”

This begs the question, what if the card isn’t still in play at the end of the turn? What if you could ensure that a card with Necromancy will make its way back into your discard pile, from which it can be played all over again? You can, of course, by sacrificing it.

Wight Lords, one of the cards in March of the Damned, would make a great candidate for this “sacrifice and repeat” combo. Every time this formidable unit enters play, you can choose and destroy one of your opponent’s units! As part of a Chaos deck, for example, you could play the Wight Lord (destroying a target unit), use him to attack, then play a card like Offering of Blood to sacrifice him. This would send him back to the discard pile, avoiding the usual necromancy penalty of burying him at the bottom of your deck.

Join us next week when we take a look at a card from The Fall of Karak Grimaz, the second Battle Pack in The Enemy Cycle!

Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game is a card game by Eric M. Lang in which 2 players develop their kingdoms and lay waste to their foes. Each side is comprised of either the forces of Order or the forces of Destruction as they seek to extend their empire to include the entire Old World. The Living Card Game format allows players to customize their gaming experience with monthly Battle Pack expansions to the core game.

@drag0on

yep, its a slann, that right,

I wouldn't mind seeing the slann card but i would like the strongest card to remain unknown(the are the masters of magic afterall), so unless they are not the strongest I would like them to show a stegandon or a carnasaur or something that would still pack a punch instead.

o lol. only i think this card is way too good? not ony he is an efficient fighter (2p4hp) but also has one of the best skills in the game. Come on, compare him to chaos knights. or alluring demonetts. what would u choose?? this guy can take anyone on the field + he is a good fighter.

Necromancy will be so much fun :D Chaos - Vampire count deck, here I come!

Also, now I want to see the big slan card. (It is a slann isn't it? Not that much familiar with warhammer lore.)

I believe that this should be one f the mot powerfull Necromancy powered unit (as vampires are the resurrectors not the ressureted in a VC army). Vampire lords maybe have some ability to empower th Necromancy ability in overall.

Great card ! Will be nice with the DE prisoner sacrifice cards.

I am glad the showed a powerful card, i want to be able to see the powr of these two races, and considering this probably is not even the strongest undead card (Vampire lord or something would be in this most likely and be more powerful) we can assume that these decks are going to have a few real powerhouses.

I am also glad they showed a cardfrom March of the Damned instead of the burning of Dericksberg, we have already seen nearly half the cards form that pack.
