The Chronicler of Ruin: card review!
Chronicler of Ruin is a very versatile unit, being able to perform various functions within the same deck: drawing, copying, summoning units and some other surprises!
somesynergies that I think are most important and interesting, limited to
current expansionof the game: Rising Tides.
"Play: Kill an ally, then revive it". Because it costs 4 mana, its 3/3 stats are slightly below average, but are compensated for its ability. With a cost of 4 manas, we have as main
cost competitors: Champions: Maokai and Twisted Fate. Units: Wraithcaller, Grizzled Ranger, Vanguard Bannerman and Chump Whump. Spells: Will of Ionia, Avalanche and Concussive Palm. Currently in Legends of Runeterra, it is the only unit that makes the effect of "Blink" (remove a unit from the field and then return it), normally beginners do not see potential in this skill, so let's describe its effects! By killing a unit and summoning it again: - Abilities triggered by summoning and Last Breath will be reactivated. - Activates 1 die in death counting abilities. - The unit targeted by Chronicler of Ruin is reset (damage, buffs and debuffs will be removed (silence, vulnerable also). - Because it has a unique skill in the game (for now), it does not have
role competitors. The closest effects are the Retreat /Return spells, which have their limitations, but are able to reactivate summoning effects on cards with a cost of up to 3 mana. Its defect is being dependent on other cards to perform your function, while even without them the Chronicler of Ruin has the value of a 3/3 unit on the battlefield.
COMBOS!Because it is versatile and reactivates the effect of other cards, the Chronicler can make several interesting synergies during the game. Here the cards will be grouped by their synergy functions:
Card advantage(Will create a card in your hand) - Scribe of Sorrows: Creates an ally who died in the match. - Commander Ledros: Creates a Commander Ledros in your hand and resets the one that is on the battlefield. - Vanguard Sergeant: Creates a For Demacia! in your hand. - Jaull Hunters: Creates a random sea monster. - Back Alley Barkeep: Creates a random card for each other Back Alley Barkeep summoned.
Summoning unitsWhen using Chronicler of Ruin to summon units, be careful with the limit of 6 units on the battlefield, only use if you have up to 4 units. Remember that the unit targeted by Chronicler of Ruin will be reset. Units that summon with the Last Breath effect will still perform another summon upon dying again! - Wraithcaller: Summons a Mistwraith and gives +1/+0 to the Mistwraiths. - The Rekindler: Summons the strongest champion who died. - Cursed Keeper: Summons Escaped Abomination. - Anivia: Summons a Eggnivia, which will give life to your second Anivia on the battlefield. - Grizzled Ranger: Summons a Loyal Badgerbear. - Island Navigator: Summons a random unit costing 1 mana, and grants scout to the unit.
Copying UnitsWhen using Chronicler of Ruin to copy units, be careful with the limit of 6 units in the field, only use if you have up to 4 units in the field. Remember that the unit targeted by the Ruin Chronicler will be reset. - The Undying: We will have an undying 2/2 in the current round, and at the beginning of the next round an undying X+1/X+1 will be summoned (depends on the current power of the target undying). - Shark Chariot: In the next ephemeral attack, you will summon two Shark Chariot.
