Strategy[edit | edit source]
The stats of Professor Putricide are good on its own, but it's text is what makes it special, for every secret you play, you technically play two secrets, which will make your opponent have to play around the secrets. Ideally you would play Cloaked Huntress on turn 3 and follow it up by playing Putricide to gain a big advantage.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
- Good news, everyone! I've perfected the plague!
