|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.
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.
“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.
||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
Lawyer theme deck: 5/5
Lastly, you’ve got to love any card that has the
words “doody head” in the flavor text!
