|Ability||Opening Gambit: Your Bloodbound Spell costs 3 and is now AWESOME.|
Variax's opening gambit changes the Bloodbound Spell depending which general was chosen.
Summon two 5/5 Wraithlings nearby your general, then your unbuffed Wraithlings are buffed to 5/5. This effect is not stackable but note that Furious Wraithlings are simply Wraithlings affected by Wraithling Fury; they may still be dispelled into 1/1s.
Destroy a friendly minion. Summon Husks nearby equal to the attack of that minion. (Nearby means in that case nearby the sacrificed minion)
If any other faction manages to play Grandmaster Variax (through the use of, say, damaging one, Polarity-ing it, playing a Zen'Rui, then playing a Hailstone Prison on it, or just with Bound Tormentor), then it gives them Lilithe's version of the upgraded Bloodborn Spell.
