doc Today we look at the latest in the Banker removal arsenal. The common Banker tactic Anesthetizing Opulence.

So is that like being so rich you can’t feel anything or what?

This 4 cost 2 threshold tactic is going to rise immediately to the top of the 2 threshold Banker game. Quite simply, pick a character, destroy the character, your opponent draws a card. When compared to the other Banker removal cards: Downsizing (cost 10, threshold 4), Executive Poaching (c5, th2), Irresistible Bribe (c3, th2), Summary Judgment (iffy and c4, th2), Anesthetizing Opulence best compares to Irresistible Bribe. Where Irresistible Bribe nets your opponent Influence equal to the character’s strength, Anesthetizing Opulence nets them a card draw. How do you determine which is better for you? Well I’d say that’s a matter of opinion. Both have their place, are common and have the perfectly splashable 2 threshold. Maybe just run 3 or 4 of each!?!?

In limited, you’d be lucky to see this beyond the 2nd pass in draft and even luckier to find it in one of your Part 2 boosters for sealed. In constructed, it might be a toss up for other removal options, but it will see plenty of play.

Limited: 5/5
Constructed: 4.5/5
Ian Spiegel Anesthetizing Opulance

I like Bankers. And I like removal. Hurra!

Today we look at a nice new piece of Banker removal called Anesthetizing Opulance. I hate when writers look to the definition of a word to describe its effect, but this card sure does affluently render a character insensible- thats dictionary slang for f's stuff up.

It allows point blank removal of any character your opponent controls, with the only downside of allowing the opponent to draw a card. All though I hate to give the opponent any advantage, whether it be card advantage, tempo, or  field presence,  sometimes killing that Torrential Bleeder or Hulking Vigilanty is worth the extra card.

In constructed, this card finds a home where Irresitible Bribe is resisted, as well as alongside its life giving brethren. In limited, a solid piece of removal.

Constructed: 4
Limited: 5
