Welcome back everyone!  Time to tie a vine around the second Swamp Orc Summoner, Natazga!

So far, we've seen how much Natazga likes beating up walls to choke the opponent down with vines, and how her common Units both support and further that strategy. But this cool mechanic doesn't always promote a strong matgic economy. So, here's a card that epitomizes that idea: creating vine walls but challenging the magic economy:

Quagmire

This card was, well, a bit of a quagmire to balance, but its ended up a really cool card. So you attack that wall and toss a Vine Wall deep in enemy territory. On their turn, the opponent decides they need to deal with that threat, but when they do not only do their attacks fail, but MOAR VINES! This is another one of those delicious cards that can mess with all but the best laid plans, especially when you trap someone next to the Vine Wall they tried to kill!

And then, wouldn't it be cool if there was a champion that could teleport onto that newly created Vine Wall?

Sklursh

This is a scary dude, and I've gotta say he might have my favorite Swamp Orc name. I can't tell you how many times I've stepped into a muddy patch on the disc golf course and heard "sklursh" as my boot gets soaked. And Sklursh himself is a lot better at stepping in mud then I am. One thing about Natazga compared to Mugglug is that her Vines typically aren't connected. Based on where the opponent's walls are, they can end up all over the place, but Sklursh doesn't mind. He just bounces around like a swamp genie thing on a pogo stick. And then shoots you with 3 ranged dice. Quite a mobile champion for that statline.

But what would be even cooler for those new vines than a Champion that can teleport onto them?  What can be even cooler than any of the other cards in this deck? What, in my opinion is cooler than any other Event card ever printed in Summoner Wars History!? This card.

Fury of the Fen

A bunch of Vine Walls coming to life and killing stuff?!?!  That's just too sweet!  Easily my favorite card in this deck, it brings the concept of choking with Vine Walls to a new level.  With 2 copies of this card, this is the main way that Natazga can make up that magic disadvantage. For 2 turns, all of the sudden those Vines she made by beating up your walls can beat other things up and earn her back some magic, along with repositioning themselves where she needs them.  But really, its just my favorite card because the visual of a bunch of vines coming to life and killing stuff is awesome.

So that's that for Natazga!  See you back next week to finish up Scraven and Malenatar!
