doc Today I give you the rare Banker character Randolph von Macovawitz Spitoon III, Ltd.

In this case Ltd = “limited liability person”.

This 4 cost 4 threshold unique character won’t be splashed into any decks and won’t be coveted for its 2/3/3 stats. What makes Randy worthwhile? He replaces himself upon entering play (instead of only when played so if your opponent Pluck’s him from your discard pile or if you Shocking Reappearance him he/you also gets the draw), he replaces dead resource draws once you’ve reached threshold at a cost of 1 and in a pinch you can draw a card for 1 with the added expense of destroying a resource.

There is a common belief that anything with 4 or more threshold is automatically relegated to mono trade decks only. There is another belief that Banker is the one trade lagging behind in its competitiveness as a mono deck. Randy is without a doubt going to help his Banker team in that regard. In any mono deck, you might run as few as 10-12 resources depending on how high your threshold is, but you might also run as many as 18. And as always, once you’ve reached threshold, every resource is basically a dead draw. With The Spoils rule that any card can be played face down as a resource, it’s just a matter of getting used to the idea of giving up a card that was meant for something else and using it as a resource.

In limited, Randy’s 4 threshold will likely keep him away from even the mid game, but he might see play as a late game accelerator. In constructed, he’s almost a lock in mono Banker.

Limited: 3.5/5
Constructed: 4/5
Ian Spiegel Randolph von Macovawitz Spitton III, Ltd

Randolph and I go way back to the Part Two Invitational, in which he helped my opponent draw into his lone Samuel Gristwalter in order to tie the game. Ever since, the Limited player in my has had a special hatred for the card.

However, the Banker in me loves it! It's a four cost four Greed theshold unique character with relatively subpar stat's on its own when compared to the other great four drops out there. But once this guy hits play, he immediately replaces himself with an extra draw, and his ability is nothing to scoff at.

Best played in the late game, or on those scarce Resource flood occasions, this guy lets you pay one to either discard or destroy a resource and draw a card. If it just me, or should this guy have been in Beatrix Winterbottom's card art?

With Beatrix's effect, you could be drawing two cards for one resource. Since any card can be played face down as a resource, this is hardly a cost. Besides, once you have the four threshold the meet Randy's cost, you most likely won't need any more Greed for a while.

This guy has combo potential written all over him. In Limited, he is great for recycling useless resources as well as getting all the Characters you could ever want. In Constructed, he serves nearly the same purpose, however due to the vast amount of destruction I doubt he'll see play for more than a turn or so.

Constructed: 3
Limited:4
