As the September ranked season draws to a close, it’s time to reveal this month’s reward card. This time we’re bringing you a Khajiit from the Assassin class with a few tricks up his sleeve: Prankster Mage!
Prankster Mage is a five-Magicka 5/3 with Ward and a pair of effects that will allow him to quickly turn into a headache for an unprepared opponent. Like many others in the Assassin class, these effects allow this mischievous Khajiit to shine despite not having the highest number of raw stats.
For starters, the Ward immediately makes up for this creature’s relatively low health by preventing the first time damage is dealt to it - but Prankster Mage gets another little bonus from the Ward. While the Ward is up, he also has Guard! This means you can use Prankster Mage defensively as a magnet for your opponent’s next attack. Thanks to Ward, he’ll survive that attack and then the second part of his effect kicks in, giving him Cover!
With Ward and Guard commonly found in Intelligence and Cover being a theme in Agility, Prankster Mage blends the two attributes together to create a powerful tool for Assassin decks. To double your fun, use cards like Wardcrafter or Sixth House Amulet to give Ward back to him, restarting his effect!
No matter how you plan to make use of Prankster Mage, make sure you head into the ranked ladder today to earn your copies! As with all our monthly reward cards, reaching rank 9 in our ranked ladder by the end of the month 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!
