The Art of War is a Common Relic that provides an additional Energy next turn if you do not play any attack cards in your current turn.

Strategy Edit

This relic benefits during turns where you need to use all Energy to block fully in order to negate a large amount of damage. This relic is also useful during turn 1 on characters like the Defect and the Silent, as a good number of decks for the aforementioned characters include a turn 1 where only powers or skills are played.

Synergy Edit

  • Pocketwatch Pocketwatch: On turns where Pocketwatch Pocketwatch activates, there is a good chance you did not play any attacks. This allows you to benefit more from the additional energy next turn, as you will have more cards to work with due to Pocketwatch Pocketwatch.
  • SneckoEye Snecko Eye: On turns where Art of War activates, the additional energy will allow you to play more cards if SneckoEye Snecko Eye randomizes cards into mostly high costs.
  • LetterOpener Letter Opener: Allows you to deal damage without playing attack.
  • The Bomb
    TheBomb
    : The Bomb
    TheBomb
    is a skill which deals damage, meaning you can deal damage without losing the benefit of Art of War.
  • Pressure Points does damage without being an attack.
  • All attack cards: Prevents Art of War from triggering.
  • Double Tap
    DoubleTap
    : Playing this skill would be a waste of Energy unless you played an attack, therefore preventing Art of War from triggering.
  • OrnamentalFan Ornamental Fan, Nunchaku Nunchaku, Kunai Kunai, Shuriken Shuriken: These relics reliance on attacking clashes directly with Art of War.

Trivia Edit
