Oberour Ar Maro

A focus card for the interesting official vampire, The Ankou. I find The Ankou to be very intriguing but also impractical to use in anything other than some kind of janky combo deck; so I thought it might be fun to explore that design space a little in casual play to facilitate such a jank deck. Due to his high-cap and obvious threat, and the need to leave him unlocked or use various unlocking shenanigans to keep his bonkers face ability online, Ankou is just very awkward. The idea of this card is to turn him into an out of turn dirty trick; cheating him into play all in one go and definitely getting to use his ability at least once in ideally an impactful moment. Obviously 9 pool all at once is tricky, particularly considering most vampires worth whacking wont be hunting earlier in a game most of the time. So a bloat and siphon strategy is basically necessary.
