Bloodsurge is a simple yet interesting mechanics, which provides a trigger for abilities in this game.
However, a few generals cannot take full advantage of Bloodsurge, because their BBS can be used only under specific conditions. If I’m not mistaken, Ilena and Cyphiron are the only two generals who can use their BBS only when the opponent has a minion on the board, which is a major disadvantage. In case of Ilena, the minion must even be nearby!
I’m not sure this is intended, it really feels as something which was overlooked. So, a few questions for you:
- Are Ilena and Cyphiron the only two generals with this problem?
- Do you think it’s a problem? Would you fix it?
- If you wanted to fix it, what would you do? Make the BBSs usable without a target or suggest a small change to them?
