- Morrigan** is compared to Rock*** in terms of ability, as she can reduce damage as long as she has cards in her hand. Aspects to mention are that although Rock*** can simply reduce damage with his response ability (making it harder for the opponent to negate) before the damage is dealt, but after the enhance phase, (possibly reducing the damage of throws to 0), Morrigan selects which card to discard, and she also selects what card to remove, as well as not adding cards to the card pool (like Rock*** does) making her a more stable alternative (albeit possibly less powerful). Additionally, since she can remove a card from the discard pile from the game, she can hamper characters who use discard pile recursion, such as Matt Kohls. Lastly, her Fire symbol allows her access to Defender of the Empire, which allows her to, after she runs out of cards, to add more cards to her hand an continue to reduce damage during the next attack.
