Trifecta: How Do You Spell "Dispelled"?

Guardians Trifectas

Trifectas are interesting -- and sometimes deadly -- three-card combos for Guardians . . . if you can pull them off.

And watch out that you're not on the receiving end of one of them!

How Do You Spell "Dispelled"?

Iron Force of Sethos

Spectre's Ward

Grazhue, Lover of Vice

Okay, so this is really a two-card combo that works best with one particular Guardian.

Grazhue's ability gives you a Power Stone every time you get bribed. Iron Force of Sethos prevents both players from spending stones on Spells or Items for the turn. Spectre's Ward increases the cost of all double-bordered cards by one stone.

IMPORTANT: Play Iron Force FIRST; otherwise, you'll be paying a stone to play it.

End result: Your opponent can't cast any Spells or Items this turn. And if he tries to bribe you, he loses a stone and you get one.

Other useful cards:
  • Priest of Sethos: As a command card, no stones can be spent to channel either. It's pretty much a brute force type of thing. You can still use channelling creatures, but you better have some channel receivers ready -- you can't cast Power Lunch!
