Miss Kiku’s School of Hard Knocks

White/Black/Green Enrage the Beasts

Kiku, Night’s Flower by Jim Murray

Welcome to Miss Kiku’s School of Hard Knocks, an affiliate of the Dominaria Technical College Certificate Program! We help naïve and confused creatures of any and all kinds learn the most important lesson of all – life is pain! There’s no way to avoid it, but you can do the next best thing – get mad and break stuff!

Nearly every creature here has an Enrage ability allowing you to reap value from their misfortunes. Use Ephemerate and Wicked Guardian to gently prod the students into displaying the power of their anger. Headmistress Kiku – and her shadow – are especially good with recalcitrant students, but remember to cast Fortifying Provisions first so creatures with equal power and toughness don’t kill themselves.

Feeling like really driving home the lesson? Equip Stuffy Doll with Colossus Hammer, then use Kiku to force it to knock itself on the head. You’ll get endless laughs – and deal 10 damage per head-bonk to your opponent! Learning is fun!
