||Today we look
at the common Banker character Moneychanger.
It’s not your regular ATM…
For a cost of 3 with a threshold of 2, this 2/2/3
isn’t going to win you any battles. But that’s not
what it’s there for anyway. With its ability, and
the possibility of making it a card drawing engine,
it’ll more than make up for its lack of battle
By paying nothing and putting a token on him causing
-1/-1, draw a card.
Lets see how many ways we can abuse this engine:
Secret Handshake once every 4 turns or so, which
also nets you a draw, will keep things moving along
Ectological Hazard Suit counters the tokens by
giving +1/+1 while the Moneychanger gives it -1/-1.
Furtive Investor allows you to remove a token from a
non-resource card at the start of your turn.
Market Oracle will remove a token with naught but a

In Limited, it's nothing to write home about.
However, it is a wonderful chump blocker. If its
going to die anyhow, deplete it and add a token to
draw a card. Heck, if you know you're going to be
using it as a chump blocker before hand, use the
ability once at the end of your opponent's turn, and
then the next turn while blocking, after their
character has assigned damage.
