Core Set #34. Tactics.


Feint is kind of like the tactics equivalent of A Test of Will - it allows a one-time escape from disaster, you'll never be disappointed to draw one, and you'll probably kick yourself for not holding back a resource for it at some point. It's a powerhouse card, and a likely 3x in any deck I build that includes tactics. It comes up all the time where somebody is just one body short of being able to survive a round or kill something, so then you play this and they basically gain an action for one coin. Not just that, but it shuts down all sorts of "when attacks" effects and eliminates the risk of shadow cards. In most cases it's like the enemy doesn't exist for the turn. If you follow it up with Forest Snare, you can effectively blank a lot of tough enemies without ever having to fight.

It's also an excellent Shadow effectt cancelation! One of the strongest cards in the game, I think. — Lecitadin 64
