After Image is a Rare Power for the Silent. Whenever the player plays another card, they gain 1 Icon Block.png Block immediately afterwards. When Upgraded, After Image becomes Innate.

Mechanics[]

  • Icon Dexterity.png Dexterity does not affect the Icon Block.png Block gained from After Image, as the Block is generated by a buff and not the card itself.
  • The After Image buff is stackable, so playing multiple copies of After Image will provide even more Block per card. Since After Image+ only costs 1 Energy and is Innate, playing more than 1 copy on the first turn is easily done.

Tips[]

  • After Image is helpful for countering the Corrupt Heart's Beat of Death status, which inflicts 1 damage immediately after the player plays a card.
  • This card is an excellent addition to any Shiv-based deck, as every individual Shiv grants 1 Block.
  • Playing many cards in a turn (e.g. with Shivs) is liable to generate excess Block, so Blur can be used to carry it over to the next turn.
