Dragon's Curse

Hazard: Permanent-Event

Corruption. Dark enchantment. Playable on a non-Wizard character facing a strike from a Dragon hazard creature attack. The strike's prowess is modified by -1. The character recieves 2 corruption points. The target character makes a corruption check at the end of his untap phase. Cannot be duplicated on a given character. During his organization phase, a sage in the target character's company may tap to attempt to remove this card. Make a roll (or draw a #): if this result is greater than 6, discard this card.

Dragon's Curse is a corruption card fairly prejudiced towards the "forcing corruption check" side but not too dangerous on the "giving corruption points" side. Still, when combined with other corruption point sources it can be quite dangerous. It's a Dark enchantment, the first corruption card to be so, playable on anyone except a Wizard. You do need to have them facing a Dragon hazard creature attack, not only rare as a Dragon but rare as a creature dragon too. But when you do get this card out it's well worth it. Not only does it provide two corruption points, it also more importantly forces the character to make a corruption check at the end of every untap phase. There's a greater than 50% chance of removing this card, yes, but it has the potential nonetheless to be quite a problem. As for uses, the main place to use this card is in, of course a corruption deck, which also has to be a dragons deck so it's an unusual strategy. This card is therefore quite useful in the sideboard of a corruption or dragons deck, to pull out if your opponent's strategy can be hurt by it. Overall, Dragon's Curse is a useful card to counter your opponent's Dragon strategies with a corruption one.
