Earth Meld

Earth Control

played in 93 decks, typically 3-6 copies

Claws of the Dead

played in 70 decks, typically 1-6 copies

The most dreaded combat card of the j discipline, it is used after strikes have been chosen by both vampires and never wasted against a dodge or combat ends. The maneuver at superior J can come in handy. Finally, it works with a hand strike so Immortal Grapple is useless against it.
