Once again here we are at the end of a Season and looking at the changes upcoming for next Season starting later today. With the last Season changes we saw a lot of Warlord rule changes so for the most part we’re going to leave Warlords and Traits alone while that settles down. Speaking to that quickly, we acknowledge there was some potentially less enthusiastic reception to Manifest Nightmare which led to his buff so soon after his release, which has led to the desired effect this season, with him now coming in as the 8th most successful Warlord (winrate wise) last season which is great to see. Also while saying Warlords will remain for the most part unchanged there is one big change people have been waiting for which is the Eldrad rework. So with that said let’s get stuck in.

Eldrad Ulthran – Exiled High Farseer of Craftworld Ulthwe
Spirit Link: For every psychic attack made by an Aeldari card each turn, increase subsequent psychic attacks by 25%. This rule can be triggered by a card only once per turn.

So in effect, each psychic attack makes the next psychic attack that turn more powerful. It is triggered by Psionic Blast and Warp Surge as each counts as a psychic attack, however key restriction is that each card can only contribute to this bonus once. This means the max boost that can be achieved is 75%. This will happen relatively rarely but stacking PB and WS can lead to some devastating combos. While on the surface it’s a potentially quite straight forward rule, getting the most out of it relies on some careful position and thought. Hopefully this should see Eldrad where he always should have been as one of the top Psychic Warlords out there.
