Card of the Week: Emperor Vitiate (A)

This week’s card is from The Old Republic expansion, the next part of the IDC’s “Expansions: Revisited” project. The Sith Emperor has been renamed Emperor Vitiate, and he has been given a few enhancements, mainly the ability to cancel Stealth. Otherwise, a fully stacked Vitiate on his own would be useless against Stealth units. Subtypes have also been given a major overhaul in this expansion. The “Imperial” subtype is being added to those cards affiliated with the True Sith Empire just as the “Old Republic” subtype is featured on cards affiliated with the Republic. This opens cards up for bonuses with Imperial decks, but it also leaves them open to penalties against anti-Imperial units. “Old Republic” cards have the exact same potential for bonuses and penalties with Republic decks. Certain cards, including Keeper and Rycus Kilran among others, mistakenly had the “Sith” subtype, even though they were not actual Force-using Sith. These cards have been given the “Imperial” subtype instead. There are also several cards which are being “future-proofed” with brand new subtypes that hint at future KotOR and TOR expansions…
