Anarkiar is a very interesting underworld warrior addition to the chaotic line up and the M'arrillian invasion: Forged unity set expansion release. He is one of the only cards not to be a mipedian warbeast and have the recklessness ability, helpful or unhelpful as it may be.
I personally enjoy a good complex deck build myself. This card really wets my appetite for a good deck build. Being an uncommon makes him even the more easy to acquire and perfect. Forged unity (the set he is in) primarily focused on mixed decks or tribal put togethers.
Strategies and game play:
The great thing about him is that combined with Ikkatosh the Aich king (A seemingly rare promo card, much harder to get nowadays) gives him an additional 20 energy and removes recklessness which we will touch on more in the strategies and game play.
Combos with other cards:
Other cards that bring effects from being paired up with underworlder cards. Ikkatosh, like listed above is a great addition to this cards effectiveness, but if you can not get a ikkatosh acquiring a Akkalbi will also reduce the recklessness effect.
Ways to counteract it:
Use plenty of range and swift creatures, to jump to the back row and remove whatever card is preventing him from taking damage from his recklessness.
Uncommon, no elements, outperform power 5, easy way to remove recklessness, 1 mugic counter, overall fair stats and energy. makes for a very fun card.
If you lose your way of lowering his recklessness to 0 he will destroy himself faster than you can recover from your vital creature lose.
No variations, maybe some languages, just from - M'arrillian Invasion: Forged Unity.
Artwork and aesthetics:
Super cool artwork, a flying frog! Attacking a M'arrillian! The main Perim tribes are finally taking back their home lands and defeating the filthy M'arrillians.
For how it stands and the combinations given to it, I feel this card, used in the right hands would perform very well with a 9/10. Slight changes in stats and maybe some tweaks, but anything else could make this card into an overpowered power house.
