 hi folks,

i'm don't really understand the big advantage of Friedrich Hemmler. Why is he part of so many listed empire decks? My own units will suffer the damage, too.

thanks for helping me out with him.

 

best, 

   Mario

When you look for other units with 5 Power you'll see Star Dragon for 10 (lowering cost possible but still 4 loyalty) and Bloodthirster for 8 (5 loyalty) which has a drawback that can be used against him. Of cause Hemmlers forced effect can sometimes hit your units as well but mostly you have enough unit removal or attack in another zone. Another option when you fear the damage for your units you only attack with him alone. He is also not easy be removed as empire has strong unit protection.

 Players defend only when capital should burn so friedrich is rarely opposed. Also friedrich is often alone when attacking (early game, cost 5) so the defender will often take a damage on many units while you'll take only 1 with 4HP remaining.

Play him and you'll see that his text is not a real drawback.

Also when he is opposed you need less dmg to remove defending units so you can deal more dmg to the capital. For example when you are opposed by 2 units with 2 HP each, normally only 1 dmg goes through but with Hemmlers effect you can deal 3 dmg into the capital zone.

He's pretty much an auto include in all our local Empire decks.

 He's in most all my empire decks. He's the empire beat stick.
