Upgrading Offering increases the number of cards drawn from 3 to 5.
- Offering causes HP loss, not damage, and is not reduced by Block. The life loss downside is mitigated by the Ironclad's Burning Blood.
- The life-loss effect will trigger Runic Cube, adding an additional draw.
- Offering is exceptionally strong in decks loaded with one- and zero-cost Attacks. In particular, Anger loads your deck with free Attacks, and Bite recovers the HP loss. Adding a Panache stacks up lots of bonus area-of-effect damage.
- Combining Offering with Unceasing Top massively increases both cards' strength. The Top provides extra cards to spend surplus Energy from Offering, prolonging the chain of free draws. With a few Angers shuffled into the deck, a few Seeing Red, and a few points of Strength, turns with hundreds of damage can be executed pretty reliably.
- Offering also provides the Energy needed to execute expensive combos like Impervious + 2 Entrenches + Body Slam.
- While the life loss is a relevant cost, the player should consider that enemies attack most turns. Unless the deck is extremely defensive, ending the combat a turn or two earlier could easily prevent five or more damage.
- Many enemies, particularly bosses, use weak attacks and Debuffs for a few turns before executing an overwhelmingly strong finishing move. Offering enables the player to beat the clock and slay the foe before it can perform the coup de grace.
