Girl Genius Reference: Krosp - 9 New Cards Revealed!
A big update this time! First off: we've made a page on our Catamancer website showing all the currently revealed cards! Go check it out!
Now for the most exciting announcement: we'll be including a character from the famous web comic Girl Genius in Catamancer. Behold one of the most awesome mythical cards you can find in the game: Krosp, Emperor of Cats!
Krosp I, the Emperor of All Cats was created by Dr. Dimitri Vapnoople. He is a cat of genius-level intelligence and a master of strategy. In Catamancer, he fulfills a role that stays true to his character. Being able to play units in the Neutral Zone can be insanely strong. Since the effect doesn't kick in until its owner's next turn, it allows for some healthy counterplay.
The Sourpuss is a candy cat with an interesting mechanic. Its pessimistic attitude causes random enemy units to be affected with a -1 Attack / -1 Health debuff whenever the Sourpuss is healed. Because it has Regeneration (1), it will heal itself for 1 every turn. However, it should be noted that healing does not trigger if the Sourpuss is at full health. If you can keep your Sourpuss alive and regenerating, you can really weaken your opponent's army.
The Bewitched Bobcat is a rather sturdy cat with Ability Power. This keyword influences the power of certain Ability Cards.
Ahhh, the exotic Bay Cat! This shy cat doesn't pack a punch, but it can definitely grant you card advantage. This unit is especially great when you manage to trade it with a 2 Health unit of your opponent.
Cheetahs are very fast in Catamancer! This is the most basic cheetah you'll find in the game. With its 6 Speed, it can reach far away targets that your opponent is trying to keep safe. However, with its 3 Health is can easily be dealt with by your opponent if you aren't careful.
The Tiger Lily is our second plant based unit. Although it's unable to move, it has high stats and Initiative. An ideal card to repel an early attack from your opponent. Just play the Tiger Lily next to an enemy unit and instantly punch it in the face!
Phishing is an interesting Ability Card of the Internet Cats faction. You can play this on a beefy unit of your own to discourage your opponent to attack it, but you can also play it on a beefy enemy unit before you attack it with several of your units, allowing you to potentially draw a nice amount of cards. A versatile mechanic that your opponent simply cannot ignore!
Ahh, the Roaring Lion is a truly majestic card! This beefy, expensive unit can really turn the tides in your favor. Its Skill costs 2 Moves and has a 2 turn Cooldown, meaning you will probably only get to use it once before it dies. Because this lion has 5 Health, odds are he'll survive until your next turn, allowing you to get a big roar off in the Neutral Zone, allowing you to safely kill off a lot of enemy units! If your opponent plays this card, it will probably be best to kill it off quickly or to retreat to your side of the board!
The Purrfect Storm is a very strong Ability Card of the Ninja Cats Faction. If your opponent is foolish enough to put several units in the Neutral Zone, this Ability will allow you to wipe their army off the board with devastating damage. Of course you should probably not use this when your own units are still in the Neutral Zone. Probably.
