Post Answers for Twist the Blade?
Does anyone know of any answers to stop twist the blade? I know Exhaustion will but I'm more or less looking for a character that can stop it. Is there any available? If not, does anyone know of any other ways to stop it beside Exhaustion? Thwarted doesnt count by the way! :P

Thanks,

-Kama

Fate :lol:

Besides ML cards Mental Block and Touch of Madness can stop it if they are attached. Premonition is great if you have the seer for it because it will stop it for the turn. Steal Fate also works, though it will give your opponent two more cards (which is still better then falling over dead :wink: ). Now I am not sure but I think Final Blessing will work in Ancients if they are playing it from their discard pile.

Conviction should do the trick...

Nah... we already went over that for a while in the Rules forum... he already checked with that. Summary: Twist the Blade goes off after spending to attack, not as a react to a specific melee strike.

if you are a rogue - Flare Trap at least resets the situation - no bonuses for you - no bonuses for me.

you do still get to count Armor - so get the best Armor you can find.

While I did run Twist the Blade in the CE arc, and it did win me a few games, I don't think it is such a threat that it wrecks whole worlds.

If the discard Pile Use is that serious of a problem, consider the Devourer.

Should be an auto-include in every deck, anyway.

since it doesn't ignore Armor, a Bone Armor + War Spikes grants you +10 AC still.
