It’s another class of undead entirely that we will introduce today: the Master Vampire is heading to Cemetery Park! And he brings with him a peculiar token that we will explain in great details…
 


Not all Krosmaster from our newest season are old, gross, or even decomposed! There’s one of them who’s spared this fate and wears Eternity like a fancy cape: the Master Vampire. Discover his powers by looking at the card below:
 

A whole un-life to perfect his physique has given this new Boss a remarkable mobility on the battlefield. Imagine Cléophée’s swiftness, except with a much longer range! It will be hard to escape from his clutches. And, as per tradition for blood-sucking creatures, one of his attacks steals health.

But what’s all about the “Servant” marker mentioned on the card? I’m glad you asked! Here it is:
 

Special markers like these are one of the concepts introduced in the new season. By using some attacks, Krosmasters may put a specific marker on another Krosmaster’s card. Markers don’t have any effect by themselves, but each Krosmaster who uses them have a power which indicates their influence on the victim.

One important thing to note is that Krosmasters only have one marker to use. This doesn’t concern the Master Vampire too much, as his attack can be used only once per game! But picture a Krosmaster whose “marker attack” can be used each turn: in this case, the marker will move from target to target, without duplicating itself. You won’t contaminate the whole opposing team with a single vampire! Finally, markers are removed from the game once their controller is KO’d.

Flying swiftly around the arena, the Master Vampire can only have one slave at his service… Choose wisely!

What really catches my attention here is that the Master is a level 3 Krosmaster! I feel like this sort of Krosmaster would have, in past sets, been given a few more HP or maybe +1 MP and then bumped up to level 4. But it really feels like with Season 4, the developers have been making a bigger effort to have good Krosmasters in what has thus far been the dead zone of levels with the most figures and the fewest playable ones.

This is amazing!

Also, the "VOTE!" button isn't working!

This is definitely a cool new mechanic. (Sorry Merkator, you can't touch me!) With this new mechanic I think Unfazed should be updated to include these types of markers as well. If you think about it i say why not? Unfazed is supposed to be for those Stalwart person that just won't let other Krosmasters ruin their day!

Actually, the new Unfazed rules are very straightforward
“A Spell or Power that doesn’t belong to this Game Piece cannot apply an effect that will modify the number of AP, MP or Range markers on this Game Piece, or move this Game Piece.”

Which makes them way better than old rules that created weird interactions like with Armor Piercing and most teleporting figures.

So diverting from these rules would essentially be a worse thing than leaving Unfazed characters prey to vampiric seducrion powers.

I like it. And it has a bonus of being a very anti-tentpole card. Very cool.

As always, the theme and design of the Krosmasters and components are second to none.

Seduction.

What about area effect spells? If I target a free cell next to Master Vampire?

judging by how area effect interacts with current restriction effects (such as Phaeris and Lou), you'll need to cast spells that avoid the Master Vampire entirely (so he can't ever be hit even by AoE spells)

Eeeyup. Under the effect of the Servant marker, the Master Vampire cannot be targeted, and this includes secondary targets from an AoE spell. If he's in the area of your spell, you will have to aim somewhere else!
