The Skaven do not have a proper keyword of their own, however they have a unique resource called Warpstone Shards. These spells are similar to Soul Fragments in the sense that certain cards create them, and certain cards consume them for powerful effects. Managing Warpstone Shards is a key aspect of the class and a good Warlord needs to know when to use it for buffs right in the moment, or wait and hoard them for combos.
Ashes of Outland Expansion Showcase:
In Ashes of Outland the greatest assassin of Skavendom comes forth to lead the expedition into this new world. Armed with the sneaky schemes and tricks of Clan Eshin, he will not let anyone stand in the way of the Skaven!
Snittkch Prime is the big flashy combo card of the class. Every time you discard Warpstone Shards, he will attack again, letting you finish the opponent in a glorious flurry of stabs and spells. Snitkch has Stealth to survive enough for you to go off, however this also allows the opponent to respond. They may use a random damage effect, board clear or even play taunts to stop your OTK. He is a strong finisher, but not unfair and un-interactive.
These are the 3 Clan Knowledge cards you discover from The Great Clans. Each is suited for a different scenario which allows for an adaptive response to the situation you're in. Clan Eshin knows how to use the best of what the other clans have to offer.
