The Book of Evar Scarcarver

Spoiler Alert!
(If you cannot view the army card image, follow this link to the Heroscapers Gallery)

Character Bio (From truth): Evar Scarcarver is Vydar’s new Frostrager. We wanted to give Evar the ability to turn Frost Rage on as opposed to just having him raging all the time. In our discussions, Colby came up with the X order marker mechanic we finally used, and eventually repurposed for Siege as well. Evar comes with 2 unique powers. First, his Frost Rage power, which turns him into a mini-krug. Second is his Double Assault power. Double Assault allows him to attack an adjacent figure and quickly turn that attack into a second one as well. That second attack doesn’t need to be against the same figure (but of course engagement rules apply) the only trigger for using the power is that the first attack has to be against an adjacent opponent.

Re: The Book of Evar Scarcarver

When you put the X order marker on him you should really put your 3rd order marker on a common squad card so that your opponent will not know which figures you will move on your 3rd order marker after your 2nd order marker is revealed. This advice would apply to Siege as well.

Unfortunately, this won't work if you plan on using Evar or Siege during the round, because you have to reveal the X as soon as you reveal any other OM on Evar or Siege.

Yes but if you put your 3rd order marker on a unique figure's card then your opponent will know that figure is going to be activated after you reveal your 2nd order marker. If your 3rd order marker is on a common squad card then he will not know which figures you are going to activate. Are you going to activate the ones that are engaged with him now, bring up reinforcements, move the one on the right, the ones on the left or some of all of these options. If you put it on Agent Carr, he knows that Agent Carr is going to be activated and he knows what Agent Carr's threat range is. If you put it on the Micro Corps Agents and you have more than a Squads worth of them left he will not know which ones you will activate.

Re: The Book of Evar Scarcarver

A C+ seems quite low for a power ranking on this piece. Once injured, Evar's frost rage provides him with an unmatched combination of offense and defense. Double attacks of 5 or 6 are a serious threat to even the most heavily of armed heros such as Q9 and 6 or 7 defense is more than adequate.

Evar seems like he will make a pretty effective mid game hero assasin. Get him up close to the front lines then dump all your OMs on him and send him in for the kill. He will likely destroy quite a few screen units on his way in and by the time he reaches his target he will be sufficiently injured enough to throw a fist full of attack dice at his intended victim on the 3rd OM. You then have a 50% of winning initiative which if sucessful will pretty much seal the target's fate.

He is very similiar to Krug but lacks the two most serious drawbacks of the powerful old ogre which are Krug's poor range and defence. Krug tends to have a problem dealing with squads due to his lack of range. He often winds up seriously overkilling a single squad unit he is engaged with and then wastes his second attack. The other thing that is a problem for Krug is that once he starts to hit really hard, his poor defence means that it's easy to take down his last few hp. Evar has neither of these problems. With his range, you should be able to land both of his attacks without much trouble and the more powerful Evar becomes offensively the harder he becomes to kill.

If you average it out over his whole life the number of attack dice Evar is throwing each OM exceeds that of Awa using quick draw and his defence averages around 5.

The only draw back to Evar is that your opponent has a 50% chance of getting an OM worth of attacks in on him before you can activate frost rage and Evar must be used in a very predictable and inflexible manner when it comes to OMs. Once you send Evar in you pretty much have to sink ever single OM on him until he dies. This is a serious draw back, but I don't think it drops his value more than 1/2 of a letter grade.

I think you'ld be hard pressed to find a hero in his point range that can both dish out and survive the sort of damage that Evar can. Even if he is stuck just killing squads, he is pretty decent.

Those are two drawbacks. Krug gets to bond with Arrow Gruts. Arrow Gruts can help attack and cover glyphs.

Re: The Book of Evar Scarcarver

I think C+ is a bit low for him, but time will tell.

If I get my D3 by Saturday, I might throw him into my draft pool for Saturday's tourney - we'll see.

Those are two drawbacks. Krug gets to bond with Arrow Gruts. Arrow Gruts can help attack and cover glyphs.
I guess I missed the "s" on "drawback" but the point is that these two faults aren't that horrible. Bonding is always a good thing but I find arrow gruts are a rather poor at holding glyphs with their 1 defence.

The 50% chance of your opponent getting initiative and hitting Evar before his frost rage activates doesn't really matter when comparing him to Krug since even without frost rage Evar's defence is equal to Krug's.

I'm not making the case that Evar is better than Krug but rather that I think he is comparable in a lot of respects to Krug and other highly respected pieces and might warrant better than a C+. The few times I've proxied him in our little informal trounaments he has earned more than his points in all but one unlucky instance, even in a fields dominated by A rank pieces. I've seen him take out Nilf who had only one wound in a single OM. There is a lot of gambling when it comes to Evar but even a couple of activations where he is hitting double 5s or 6s can do a tremendous amount of damage and it is very hard to stop him once frost rage is activated. It's no simple task to finish him off since those last couple of hp are protected by 6 or 7 defence. It's rare that he doesn't go out with a serious bang so long as you play him very aggressively once he is in the thick of the battle.

Re: The Book of Evar Scarcarver

Now that I've proxied him a bit, I'll say that ES is a very underrated piece, possibly because he got so much flak about his sculpt--which does not affect how he plays! While he is order marker intensive once he gets going, as are many others, he can have a major effect on your game.

TRY HIM OUT BEFORE YOU DECIDE...

Re: The Book of Evar Scarcarver

Yes, as well as the subject-verb agreement ("are" instead of "is"). Arrow Gruts are great for holding glyphs if Krug is up against a non-bonding hero like Scarcarver who must attend to a beefed-up Krug while getting pelted by Arrow Gruts from elevations.

The Arrow Gruts might even be better employed attacking squad units that are unable to react because all the order markers are on Scarcarver.
