    Pithing spear

    From the moment I saw this card I wanted to play it because of its cool ability - fuel your SE by killing enemy allies and impaling them - what's not to love!

    Problem is that in the current environment is not quite good enough to see constructed play given the high health of the ally base - another cards that forts into the "almost but not quite" camp.

    I'd suggest 1 small tweak to this card that would make it dramatically more playable:



    1D:until the end of your turn combat damage your hero deals to opposing allies is increased by 1 and allies killed by your hero in combat are exiled.



    Keep everything else the same but this gives you the option of "burning it" for a better chance of a kill so you can trigger its main ability. Good compromise I think and wouldn't make it overpowered. At the end of the day, if you use the ability you get 1 swing with it and that's it most of the time and it won't help you kill the opposing hero.

    Thoughts?

    This would allow Logan to deal with whisp and sandworms without needing an ally on the table as well as letting warriors exile small allies and therefore have a chance against shaman loops.

    Hi there. Thanks for the suggestion. It's well thought-out, but we're happy with it where it is.

    Lightbulb Suggestion to change Pithing Spear

    Why is Pithing Spear only saying "... while you control a Shadow ally".
    So you can't use this ability if you use a human warrior hero.

    In my opinion it would be better to say e. g. "... while you control a Warrior ally".
    So there is a possibility to use this ability with an shadow hero or an human hero.

    Because it is meant for Logan and not for Amber
