visit the subject of a “quick errata” following the
release of the First Edition part 2 spoiler. The
common Gearsmith character 4p7 31f (Apt Elf).

This 3 cost 2 threshold character isn’t a 633fy 31f,
but he can do some tricks. With the stats 2/2/3, he
just another low cost, low powered piece of fodder.
Well that might be a bit harsh, but 2/2/3 isn’t
anything to write home about. So why utilize this
He can have a net cost of 2. Only Warrior Prodigy
and the less user friendly 633fy 31f and Entry-Level
Employee (the former having a condition top meet
before playing him and the latter starting out as a
1/2/3) can match his stats for that price.
In addition to the resource pay back, he gets some
pump with his gear card(s). In the ever evolving
world of Gearsmith gear and the always possible
“hand-off” after some form of tutor, he can be a
nice 3/3/3 with little effort.
With proper errata:
If you play a "gear" card attached to this card, you
may detach a resource from your faction.
While a "gear" card is attached to this card, this
card gains 1 strength and 1 life.
With the original wording, it left the option of a
Tri-Pole Magnet loop effectively allowing you to
re-use your resources ad-nauseam.
In limited, gear may not be plentiful enough to make
him worth while. In constructed, if you’re trying to
stay at splash threshold, he could find a use.
Now here's a card that I want to build a deck
around. In Constructed, I envision a Gear-heavy deck
including this, 700160x 31f, and Runic Field
Enhancer. In addition, the deck would use
Let's assume you have one Rudimentary Lathe and 4p7
31f on the field. You could play Luteoderm Prototype
onto 4p7 31f for one. Then you would detach a
resource from your faction. Luteoderm Prototype was
as good as free. And don't forget that your 'zero'
cost gear just got 4p7 31f an additional two life
and two strength You could keep playing 1 cost gear
cards on Rudimentary Lathe till the cows came home
and you ran out of gears in your hand.
Or you could play 700160x 31f to grab a now five
cost Heavy Plating- and detach two of the three
resources you used to play 700160x 31f from your
faction. Such a deck is insanely cost efficient. You
could go mono and try and get out Gigamajig- with
boosted stats from all the gear cards and Runic
Field Enhancer for the win. Or use the Horsemajigs
of the Apocalypse with Elite Team Registration. Or
go oldschool and make it an unfocused node variant.
In Limited, 4p7 31f has a decent body, and its
abilities are just a nice bonus.
