I kinda hate to say it, but there may be a lawyer deck out there and this guy may be leading the charge. Even from what we have seen in Open Beta, there are a number of decent lawyer cards that could stand a boost from Paralegal Prodigy. With him down, Tax Attorney doesn’t die from Target Practice or Shriever Attack. In addition, Mafia Lawyer becomes a better bang for your 2 influence by forcing them to kill it with a bigger party to gain more life. Let’s not even think about getting 2, or even 3 of these guys on the board all pumping each other. It can compound nicely. Unfortunately, this guy isn’t all the good in sealed, though. His stats are rather mediocre, and he could make the cut in some decks if you need filler, but you certainly aren’t going to be looking for this card in your pool unless you get really luck with a the lawyer pull.

Steve "Zambo" Zamborsky Paralegal Prodigy

Paralegal Prodigy is one of those cards that’s really interesting to build a deck around, especially in multiples. Then it starts getting sick. Imagine having three of these out and plopping down something as innocuous as a Tax Attorney. While there aren’t a ton of Lawyers out in Open Beta, I’m sure as things get rolling and more cards are released, Paralegal Prodigy will surely become a staple in some Banker decks.

In limited, Paralegal Prodigy is too expensive and too narrow for what it does. The likelihood you’re going to be able to key off of its special ability is tenuous at best. Characters are nice to have in your deck in limited format, but unless you pull a ton of Lawyers, this would be one of the last characters I’d put in my deck.

Mistie Paralegal Prodigy

“Almost ready for the big time” is this cards slogan, and I have to agree that it does have potential. Especially in constructed as it does require a specific type of character ie lawyers to be able to abuse I mean use his ability. He is still a decent character by himself, (especially in limited when it’s harder to get good characters), with three strength, life and speed which makes it harder for him to be destroyed, for example by Shriever attack and target practice. Keep in mind that although he can survive those attacks he may not fare so well against a character with a highers speed or strength.be sure if you are running him you play heavy or mono greed as his threshold is three. The most important thing to remember is the more lawyers you control the better he becomes.

doc Today we have an Uncommon Banker card, Paralegal Prodigy.

At cost 5 threshold 3, I’d expect solid stats with a very useful ability or a fat beat stick.
At 3 strength, 3 life, 3 speed, he’s not a fatty but he is solid. So how good is his ability?
“All your other “lawyer” characters gain 1 strength and 1 life.” In Open Beta (OB) there are only 7 lawyers. Now each of those lawyers could certainly use the boost as their average strength and life are 1.4 and 2.1 respectively. So the question becomes, is Paralegal Prodigy going to impact enough of your characters to validate is cost?
If you’re running a lawyer heavy deck, absolutely. In a limited OB environment, it’s rather unlikely you’ll get to take advantage of his ability to any great extent.

Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 2/5
Lawyer theme deck: 5/5

Lastly, you’ve got to love any card that has the words “doody head” in the flavor text!
