No faqs yet for this card.


Lily Chen can utilize this weapon greatly. It combos very well with her staples by adding charges to them:

This alone makes this card great in her deck. Just because how powerful Brand of Cthugha is. Having more uses of Enchanted Blade, especially when your deck is not developed yet, makes starter deck more powerful and reliable.

It works well with both Masks she can take. You could also consider including:

Wicked Athame takes a hand slot, yes, but Lily can afford that, or mitigate that with either version of Bandolier Bandolier or Tinker. Curse tokens added by cursed blade can be automatically mitigated when combined with Ancestral Token, and for most part it should be enough to add single token.

But you can wield it if you get an occult requilary — Tharzax · 1
Good point @Tharzax. Although it's not cheap experience wise but it makes up for it being a permanent (you don't have to draw it, it's already in play from the get go) — bugiel_marek · 17
