Masterful Stab is an Attack card for the Silent. It starts at 0 cost, but increases cost whenever you lose HP.

Mechanics[]

  • The cost increases by the number of times you lose HP, not the amount of HP lost.
  • The cost of the card is not limited to 3.
  • If this card is created during combat (such as through DeadBranch.png Dead Branch, AttackPotion.png Attack Potion, or Foreign Influence), it will start at base cost, ignoring any HP you lost before it existed, unlike Blood for Blood.

Interactions[]
