Igloo was a card added in Beta 4.8 with a relatively unique ability. Since Beta 12.1, this ability is to summon a random Common, Rare or Epic card to the board at the start of your turn, including other Igloos. It can't summon generated monsters like the Doodlebog. This will continue to occur until the board is full or until Igloo is silenced or killed.
No gold is used when cards are summoned, however Magic and Future effects will not initiate as these only occur if placed from the hand to the board. Charges, Dust, and special abilities still work, though. This makes Igloo especially useful in quick drawing aggressive decks, or those who wish to save money whilst taking a risk. Because of the usefulness of this card as well as the chances of you placing a high stats card on the board relatively early on, the Igloo is prone to being a target by the enemy. To deal with this it has decently high HP, however has zero attack so it can be countered easily by cards like Madjick and Nacarat Jester. Once the board is full, Igloo will no longer summon cards.
As of Beta 8.0.1, summoned monsters will now trigger abilities of monsters that previously only happened whenever the card was placed from hand. Such cards include Politics Bear and Nice Cream Guy, making them good in combo with Igloo.
THIS INCLUDES THEMSELVES!
- Politics Bear will gain +1 HP for every monster summoned. (Starts with 3/4.)
- Nice Cream Guy will give +1/+1 to every monster summoned. (Starts with 4/7.)
- Allergic Temmie will deal 1 damage to all enemy monsters.
As a side note, like most cards, if this card is shiny, it will spawn shiny cards.
Counters: As stated above, Madjick and most silences will be able to render this card useless. High attack cards like Glyde and Royal Guard 2 will also be able to one-shot this card. You can also use a Politics Bear on your own, increasing its ATK with every new monster the enemy Igloo summons.
