||We start our
last full week of Artist Series Cards with the Rare
Banker Location Resurrection Emporium.
For a cost of 0 with a threshold of 3, you get a
Location with Structure strength of 3 and 2 clashing
abilities. The first, a replacement ability, puts
Characters bound for your discard pile into your
"removed from game" pile. In direct conflict, it's
second ability is to put a Character from your
discard pile into play for a cost of 3+ it's numeric
cost. While this isn't a card you want to see until
late game, when it is it's time to hit play, it can
be put to GREAT use. In order to be useful in
mid-game, you'd have to be running some kind of
discard ability and discard ability means Rogues.
What are the likely candidates to be brought back
via the Emporium? First to mind would be Erotic
Assassin, Pettifogger and Samuel Gristwalter. If you
are running with Rogues; Pillaging Pirate, Ferrous
Ferret, Heist Planner and of course Pluck. If you'd
like to be brave and try to utilize the rule that
you do not have to have threshold to put a card into
play, other low cost candidates would be: Quotidian
Ejector, Swarm of Gnats and Bloodcurdling Bulldozer
Remember, a card like Flaming Barduse brought into
play with the Emporium wouldn't get to deal it's 2
In limited, being able to bring back a key card that
you only have one copy of could easily mean the
difference between winning and losing. In
constructed, someone will find a way to abuse this
definitely an odd card. For one thing, it can be
incredibly useful. On the other hand it's counter
productive to itself. Definitely a late game thing.
For sealed, I love it. You have a limited number of
characters and getting one of your choice that you
probably have a limited number of can be game
altering. Like Pluck for instance. It also lets you
get around threshold, so if you're playing against
Arcanist or Rogue, this may be a godsend.
In Constructed, I'm a tad iffier. On one hand you
could use this with Tremor Engine and a lot of
awesome cards from other trades. You could play only
Greeds and one Deception, but you'd be able to bring
out things like Lugubrian Octopod and Vander Malagut.
On the other hand, you could just be playing those
cards from your hand. Or using Postmortem Debenture
to get them back and then play them. That would be
My final conclusion on this card for constructed is
that if you're playing this, you should be playing
Repo Man. You'll want to be rid of it eventually.
