Strategy[]

Taking a slightly different page from his original iteration, Y'Shaarj, the Defiler is the massive payoff card for playing Corrupted cards within a single game. Upon play, he effectively refills your hand with one copy of each Corrupted card, that can be used right off the bat in the same turn; providing immense tempo that can potentially change the tide of the game. Best suited for decks that take advantage of a variety of Corrupted cards; payoff proportional to each different card played.

Corrupted cards come in all shapes and sizes, some better than others as the situation would call for. A general rule of thumb to take: Corrupt cards are powerful for their base costs. But ultimately, it's up to your better judgement to gauge on how to best use your Corrupted cards; whether for establishing defense or pressing on the offence.
