Scrape is an Attack card for The Defect that combines solid damage with a powerful card-draw effect. As an uncommon card, Scrape can be acquired as a battle reward card or purchased from the Merchant.

Strategy

  • Scrape is a critical piece of The Defect's 0-cost archetype, drawing into your key cards while dealing relevant damage. Some zero-cost synergies include:
  • Note that Curses, Statuses, and X-cost cards like Tempest
    Tempest
    do not cost 0, and will be discarded by Scrape.
  • When The Defect is Confused, cards whose costs are reduced to 0 will not be discarded, while cards whose costs are increased above 0 will be discarded.
  • Because Scrape draws through your deck faster, it allows you to shuffle more often. This can be used to enable effects like Sundial.
  • Scrape's effect is much stronger than it initially appears. You can immediately play every card you draw, even if you played Scrape with your final Energy.
  • You don't even need many 0-cost cards to get value from Scrape - upgrading your starting Zap
    Zap
    and Dualcast
    Dualcast
    reduces their costs to 0, and even two Claws
    Claw
    can become exceptionally powerful during a long game.
  • Be sure to check upgrades while building around Scrape. Many of The Defect's cards drop to 0 cost when upgraded.
  • Scrape is one of the few Attacks that can actually draw cards. This makes it useful against Chosen, Gremlin Nob, and other enemies that punish non-Attack cards.
  • Be careful not to inadvertently draw Dazed
    Dazed
    and Clumsy
    Clumsy
    with Scrape - they will be discarded instead of Exhausted.
  • When you have eight or fewer cards in your deck, check your decklist before playing Scrape. If your remaining cards aren't particularly powerful, you may want to deliberately discard them so you'll reshuffle next turn.
