More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these three threads for more information and context on summoning odds:

If you’ve read them a million times before, you may consider reading them again before deciding on your budget for summoning. A little time spent deciding on how much money you want to risk on summoning goes a long way to avoiding disappointment, frustration, and regret later. :slight_smile:

He got buffed in speed and is now average at 335 damage to all, which means his damage output got toned down… but still a brutal card.


Sure the initial output got reduced, but his fiends now do 90% damage per turn, and his attack reduction is now -45% which is huge for a non-cleansable whilst there are fiends


The hero card is updated with the changes.

On my 20th(and now last) pull of this portal. I’m happy to get him, even though he now just adds to my list of clerics without enough emblems lol


I got this chap in my 11 coin summon

It’s a sign of the times that I can’t tell if he’s good or not from the card….

When everyone is Super, no one will be.


Think he is intended to be a tank. Had anyone tested or come across him yet? Curious how he performs

Got him and Sargasso from few coin pulls.


Here’s mine with LB1, taking full sword > shield path for anyone interested. My defence right now isn’t a good indication, but will monitor and play around with him on attack for a bit.


He’s an average speed attack-all fiend summoner with similar damage output to Cardinal Richelieu, but his -attack is reminiscent of Ukkonen. Pretty good card, but doesn’t have amazing utility like buff steal and cover for Richelieu or dispel immunity and heal over time like Ukkonen, so he’s a tier below them.

I didn’t like BC because he looks plain. To put it bluntly, he’s pretty much a slower Fortuna without the priority dispel but hits harder. The third gen CF heroes all have a uniqueness to it. This coming fourth gen CF hero just doesn’t feel like an inspiring hero to chase after. I hope the rest of the fourth gen CF heroes look interesting


Underwhelming and kinda disappointing tbh

He’s an average speed Cleaver, essentially

His damage is good, effects are just OK, but overall, he’s incredibly boring.

He’ll be a good defensive hero I spose, but imo, nothing special



He might look boring, but his fiend is strong. His fiend damage 90% each turn (twice of Cardinal Roc.), and require 40 % heal (Cardinal is 35%) …

If somehow, you cast Fiends x3 to all, you damage 90%x3 to all every turn, while also reduce enemy damage


Between him and Fulvia it’s always nice to see the legendaries I’m lucky enough to pull be hated on lol


Boring? Is he a movie or a person to hang with? Lol
Its a card game …and he’s pretty tough
People complaining about the power creep then when devs release a powerful yet reasonable card they are up set and not excited about it
Lol the weirdest contradictory community i ever seen :joy:


There is a possible bug with him, I start here and base on the feedback we may need a separate thread.

If you fire BC when enemy has protection on, e.g. if enemy Hather fire before BC then they all get the fiends from BC but no attack down. But this continue although when the protection is gone. So all enemies have the fiends but no attack down.

On the card it says that attack down is there as far as there is a fiend. I expected that when Hathor protection ends, enemy will start to have attack down.

Is it similar with other fiends that give attack down or DD etc? Does it work as intended?

Happy gaming

I think people would have a more favorable view towards him if they didn’t have to think about how he’d stack up against the OP heroes.

You’re trying to compete. You make a summon and THIS guy pops out. In past years, you’d be excited. These days, can he compete against Goblins and Luna? If the answer is “no”, you don’t want to spend tokens/gems to get him.

It’s all relative.
