Payment: 2 Yellow
Card Effect: Two Green >>> When you counterattack,

Flavor Text: " Gentle, sweet, refined—with all the
manners and graces of English gentry.”
Not a great card by any stretch of the imagination.
Not terrible, as in unplayable, but I won’t be
rushing to put one in my deck. 2 yellow energy seems
an awful lot to pay for such mediocre intercept and
force. Since the card effect is merely a trade of
energy, it doesn’t seem to me to be all that useful.
Sure I like eliminating my opponent’s energy, but I
don’t like losing the same amount to do so.
No listings on ebay for this baby, and I couldn’t
find anywhere that was selling it as a single, which
means, no action. No action indicates to me a
mediocre collector’s value. Maybe a buck or two.

Next week: Better cards, one would hope.
think someone in the upper echelons of Pojo might be
sending me a message. I posted a Rachel Darling deck
last week(Oceans 14) which could have used more of a
signature strategy. A Woman's Touch is that
For only 2 yellow it gives a decent 6-5 combination
that allows serious useability for both defense and
offense. But the real fun starts with its payment
power. For two more green you can eliminate up to
two of your opponents green energy. Sweet right?
Yes, but still not signature.
You must ask: what problem occurs whenever I try to
eliminate green energy?
Answer: no green energy is available. Afterall it is
the least valuable, and the zone is often empty. But
thanks to the Sail strikes Broadside(4-4) and Run
Aground(7-4), that problem is solved. When
counterattacking with these strikes you can move
your opponents yellow energy to his green zone, for
free. No payment cost. This allows for easy pickins'
of the green zone with A Woman's
Touch. And voila! A signature is born.
