doc We close out the week with the rare Gearsmith item Runic Field Enhancer.

Gearsmith, of course, have access to arguable the best gear cards. They also have more ways to tutor for gear cards than the other trades. With Runic Field Enhancer, we’ve got more reason to pack our decks with gear pump!

For a cost of 5 and a fair threshold of 3, Runic Field Enhancer will pump all of your characters. Outside of Clandestine Resort, no other non-tactic can pump all of your characters at once, and no other card does this for both your character’s strength and life. And instead of pumping for just one or two, RFE pumps equal to the number of gear cards you control.

So what gear is realistic in a competitive constructed deck? Luteoderm Prototype and Armor come to mind first. These two have been the prime targets for 700160x 31f since the beginning. With the release of First Edition part 2, we have another and nastier option: Dethmurderbludgeon, the Craghammer. If you haven’t seen this card yet, go look it up quick! Other notable gear would include Spiky Atlasphere, Tri-Pole Magnet and Hidden Sandwich.

The one I’d like to address is Hidden Sandwich. Since it can be played anytime you could play a tactic, this gem can add +1/+1 to all of your characters in the middle of a battle AND save a character. And if that character already has a gear on it, your opponent might have planned on watching all of your characters lose 1/1 only to find they got bigger instead. Tech is cool.

In limited, gear may not be plentiful enough to warrant its inclusion. In constructed, it will be the key piece of a gear intensive/abusive deck.

Limited: 2.5/5
Constructed: 3.5/5
