Flavor text kinda makes me want to see the Bilnami as a Junk. not very good cannons, but decent speed and a built in explorer, all for the cheap cost of 10 points. I think I’d toss on a helmsman and be done with her, she’s perfect for 40-50 point games.
Good points! The cannons average out to rank-3 which isn’t terrible. I feel like she’s slightly worse but similar to the East Wind – a potential low-cargo hybrid that isn’t awesome but gets overlooked. Surprised you didn’t react to the Rage of Atlantis (no problem, just figured you’d find it interesting); I may just make her Cursed.
