Vampire Lord is now Brown/Purple, still removes Red gems to boost… that looks like a buff to me. On the other hand, he still has Fire Spirit, meaning that not only is he down 1 magic (given he used to be Red himself), but he now suffers from the same issues that Reaver used to have. Any chance this will be altered?
For that matter, there are only four troops with Magic Spirit, while there are nine with Fire Spirit currently. Just an idea.
Some quick calculations show that in theory this is actually worth more (in terms of real cash) than the standard 300 Glory UR bundle.
However, my premise for valuing cards is not necessarily correct. What I currently do is say 1 copy of a card is equal to roughly 10 of the lowest quality keys (so generally Glory, but in this case Gold). And this is skewed a bit further by the fact that buying gold for real money is actually a very expensive way of getting gold.
