@Lilith...Also, black blood from friendly Neph's can harm her!
Black Blood 1. All non-Neverborn models suffer 1 Wd when this model suffers Wd from a Melee Strike or Melee Spell ().
It would be insane if it could, though.
As a side note, it does mean that Killjoy can't be harmed by Black Blood if he goes rampaging through a line of tots and such.
So, if Malifaux Raptors are Beasts, why aren't Vultures? Other totems can be Constructs, Spirits, Nightmares, Undead, etc., why the oversight? [And, yes, I double checked the v2.0 cards. Maybe Vultures need a v3.0?Looks like Wendigo could use Beast, as well.]
Why I even thought of this, though? It'd be far easier to Alpha a Totem instead of a Master. For the Vultures, if they were the Beasts that they probably should be, then it'd save you the step of having to turn them into one. Then you could cast one of the connected Master's spells. Just because the controller changed, doesn't mean the Totem stopped being connected, right? Nicodem has some nasty spells that you'd want to use, and with a Wk of 10, the Vulture can probably get into range of any model you'd like to target, if it's not there already. Just like with some of your other tricks, you'll want to already be holding the right cards to make the best use of this. With a Ca of 2, you'll need a 12+ to cast Decay, and getting to the 17 to Paralyze a model with Rigor Mortis will need a high plus burning a ss.
Now take this idea and run with it for all of the other totems. :D
Most Totems can only use Magical Extension once per activation. If you were to take control of a Daydream, however, it has Dreamer's Reality that allows you to do it twice per activation, at the cost of a Control Card.
