General description:
This is just a great generic stat check attack that does not rely on elements, considering the new TotT set the elements are less reliable and stats play a good role in the game now.

Uses:
This card plays a key role in as a great 1BP(Build point) attack for 15 damage in any good mipedian strike deck or arrthoa stat build.

Strategies and game play:
Owayki mipedian strike decks make speed something you do not need to worry about which is a great defense against stat lower abilities and attacks.

Combos with other cards:
Using the other cards of this like Glacial balls and the others Stat check 100: Deal 15 damage with any Arrthoa deck where creatures with water make all stat checks and challenges. Bodal's dagger decks make great use of this card as well!

Ways to counteract it:
Play a very strong Gan'trak deck or lots of cards to lower stats. It isn't much of a threat to watch out for. Considering it is only 15 damage.

Strengths/Pros:
15 damage for one build point is a handy card and it is only rare, which is not too great but not terrible considering magma hack is a super rare.

Weaknesses/Cons:
If you do not have 100 speed and no arrthoa or bodals dagger, this deck becomes seemingly useless.

Variations:
Chaotic is in a few different languages I believe, I do not know which off hand but I do know there is some alternates. There is only one version per say for the game though. There is alternates in the stats though. This one is for speed. The one for wisdom is Glacial balls, the one for earth is unarmed brawl bash, and the one for fire is magma hack.

Artwork and aesthetics:
The Artwork is great, I think chaotic is one of the best games ever with their artwork, really well developed in the artwork I would say. A furious mipedian striking out in lightning speed, just what this card is all about.

Overall rating:
It's more of a generic attack card but overall I really enjoyed the new expansion of 15 damage for one build point over the 10 for 1 BP. So I would give this a 10/10 for the category and area it is in at this time of expansion releases.
