Lanista appears with an Earth-elemental card.

NotesEdit

  • Lanista's Souleater ability is useful to deplete one's own HP to boost the power of Razzle-Dazzle. However, to make it work better, one may need to level up their seeq as a Berserker due to their excellent HP growth. Souleater and Sword of Darkness are preferable against the troublesome Sprites and Banshees.
