This month, our reward card comes from the Spellsword class - say hello to Apprentice Necromancer!
Apprentice Necromancer is a 3-magicka 3/3 Imperial which can summon any 1-cost creature from your discard pile. While its 3/3 stats are already reasonable for a 3-cost creature, this card potentially generates much more value by getting back a powerful 1-cost creature like Deepwood Trapper or allowing you to re-use the Summon effect of a card like Marked Man!
Since this creature often gives you two creatures for the price of one, it’s perfect for the “Token Deck” strategies already popular in the Spellsword and Empire classes, flooding the board with small creatures and buffing them up with cards like Divine Fervor.
No matter how you choose to use Apprentice Necromancer, make sure you head into Ranked Play and earn your copies before the end of the month! As with all our monthly reward cards, reaching rank 9 in our ranked ladder by the end of May will award you one copy, rank 5 will earn you the second and if you finish rank 1 or higher you’ll get a full playset. In addition, if you’re able to finish in the top 1,000 Legend ranks, your playset will be premium!
