Understanding Blade in Marvel’s Midnight Suns

A fearsome vigilante, Eric Brooks AKA Blade pursues vampires relentlessly wherever they may hide. There are many tales of the Daywalker exacting his form of justice, and while he prefers to work alone, Blade has been known to work with like-minded allies from time to time. The Midnight Suns is one example of a group that he is a critical part of.

Blade Speciality in Marvel’s Midnight Suns

As a hero, Blade brings plenty to the table, but his most prominent strengths in the game are:

  • Single-target damage
  • Chain abilities
  • Damage over time

When you are looking to take down a particularly strong foe, Blade is one of the more effective proponents of elimination thanks to his many chain attacks. These can be used on several enemies or on one sole enemy, increasing the damage done. Also, his passive, Cold Blooded, as well as many cards can cause the Bleeding effect, which will cause enemies to take damage over time with each passing turn.

Finally, Blade’s later abilities will make use of the Bleeding effect to cause more damage, striking the fatal blow even against the toughest of enemies.

The Best Cards for Blade

  • Relentless – Deal extra damage to those that have been hurt in the same turn.
  • Reaper – Deal good damage, but also expend all Bleeding stacks for extra damage.
  • Savage – Great for dealing with enemies with Block, as it does bonus damage to such enemies.
  • Stake – Lifesteal keeps Blade alive, while the damage dealt is significant as well.
  • The Hunger – Applies 2 Marked to every enemy with Bleed, which makes any card play free if the enemy is knocked out. Also recovers health with every enemy with Bleed.

Best Teams Members to Use With Blade

Although Blade is great at dealing damage, he lacks any powerful squad support abilities, as well as the capacity to reposition enemies through Knockback or other means. To make the best use of him, pair him with supportive heroes like The Hunter or Doctor Strange who can protect and buff him, while he does the dirty work.
