Call of Cthulhu LCG: The Dark Mother’s Multitudinous Monstrosities

The Thousand Young box cover.The Thousand Young, Shub-Niggurath’s deluxe expansion for Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game is on the horizon — surprisingly and delightfully soon after the Agency’s For the Greater Good — and thus Fantasy Flight has begun their series of preview articles. In addition to introducing the new keyword Resilient and reviving a subtype tribe from the CCG days, Avatar of Nyarlathotep, The Thousand Young is spreading the love to all of Shub-Niggurath’s existing tribes: Ghouls, Chthonians, Monsters and, yes, my personal favorite, the Mi-Go.

The Mi-Go are a self-reinforcing subtype. Many of them grant other Mi-Go icons, or gain icons based on the number of their kind in play. Now they get Xlizxcte-Oonth, the first unique Mi-Go. Not only is he beefier than your typical Mi-Go before buffing, but he aids in playing out still more for cheap, and from the discard pile. In my first Mi-Go deck, I had the Corrupted Midwife on hand for that purpose, but I don’t know if I ever got to use her, as it was usually more advantageous to send her to a story. Not having to exhaust to get the same effect for Mi-Go sounds like it’s going to be pretty cool.

Decked!: Blood, Bath & Beyond vs. Ancient Rites

Our run of Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game continues as the Agency’s ranks, infested with the spawn of Shub-Niggurath, struggle to thwart the aeons-long machinations of the cult of dread Cthulhu.

Ancient Rites started with a sample deck list released in the run up to The Sleeper Below, and then when I borrowed a number of cultists for Rebirth of the Cult, I turned to the wider card pool to bring in new worshipers and Ancient Ones, plus the titular conspiracy Ancient Rites.

Decked!: Skill-less vs. Clover Club Special

In this Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game game, Ray brings Skill-less from episodes 5 and 6 back to bear on what turns out to be the reverse sort of mirror match-up, as Tyler plays a mono Syndicate deck, Clover Club Special.

Clover Club Special is a slight variant on David Boeren’s Clover Club Lunch Special, a sample deck list included in the Denizens of the Underworld expansion. It varies mostly in that some of the one-of cards from the core set were removed to allow other one-ofs to become two-ofs.
