* Reaper is a clunky card - not only is it situational, but it's expensive at 2 Energy. When playing a deck with Reaper, take care not to get too greedy. It's easy to make poor plays in the hope that Reaper will restore more health in the future.

* Reaper's best friends are {{KW|Strength}} buffs. Not only does {{KW|Strength}} increase the amount of Health restored, but you don't need to worry about timing it like you would with Vulnerable.

* Reaper is an excellent utility for self-damaging decks, especially ones with{{C|Rupture|Rupture}}. It gives you more health in mid-battle, allowing the usually short-lived deck to effectively fight longer battles against bosses.
