Arbeid is a BEAUTIFUL defender added in Dawn of Perim: Silent Sands. He is a loyal unqiue overworlder that has 2 mugic counters and the ability to once during your turn to lower one attack of your opponents to only 5 damage!
For a budget overworld deck or even a lower rarity built deck, this card is a great supporter to block heavy hits on your front line creatures.
Strategies and game play:
Being loyal (which means he can only be in decks of his own tribe - overworld) prevents mix tribed decks. So with a good healing deck or maxxor pop deck he can be a lot of fun.
Combos with other cards:
a Gigantroper or Mipedian Balladers Flute would be a very helpful addition to his ability to perform. Gigantroper would make up his lower energy and stats and allow him to fight with his water element.
Ways to counteract it:
The card dissonance of will would be a helpful defense against this card. Inidgo ark can also help prevent your strike deck's first attack from suffering major damage lowering. Because a good strike deck can hit for 70-100 damage on the first turn, and to be lowered down to just 5 could cause some serious problems.
2 mugic counters and being an overworld creature works well with preventing the damage brought upon your other creatures. He may be a little old being from the 3rd set but is a easy to get common/uncommon card.
Low energy and not able to defend himself against a range and swift creature.
Though some cards in the game do have variations but this card does not. Possible other languages but this card was only released in Silent sands of the dawn of perim expansion.
Artwork and aesthetics:
His artwork is really well done, plays along very well with his ability and being under fire but not taking the damage that was sent with the flaming arrows.
Lower energy, but fantastic effect... 8/10.
