doc Today we look at the common Arcanist item Ectological Hazard Suit.

More fun with tokens!

This 3 cost 2 threshold gear type item could be one of the biggest boons to characters that already gain something by having tokens on them, and at the same time, it is the panacea for those who lose something by having tokens on them. Either way, every token gains the character +1 strength and life.

For those that have a drawback due to their tokens (the Bankers characters Amortized Straw Man, Entry-Level Employee, Furtive Investor, Money Changer, Prudent Thug and Reluctant Hiree) Ectological Hazard Suit negates the strength and life loss due to the tokens, resulting in tokens that mean nothing! Money Changer is fist in line to get one of these babies!

For those that gain +1 strength and/or life for each token on them (Berserker Corps, Gore Engine, Guardforce Morphmajig, and the Rogue characters Ferrous Ferret, Bipolar Sarcophyle, Thief Doyen, Red Raven, Hyperphagic Sarcophyle) Ectological Hazard Suit basically gives the characters +2 instead of just +1. Can you imagine a turn 4 27/27 Thief Doyen?

To take things one step further, if you can also swing a Dragon Catheter, your tokens are getting bigger by the minute. Add multiples of either, and they all get added together. (Somewhere there’s a Ferret doing multiplication just imagining how fat he could get!)

In limited, token use will be sporadic. In draft you might get lucky and hit 3 or 4, but in sealed…doubtful. In constructed, there’s a combo deck somewhere that will beg for this in the opening hand.

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 3.5/5
Ian Ecological Hazard Suit

Today we look at the three cost Arcanist item Ecological Hazard Suit. This gear card gives the attached character and extra strength and life for each token on it, as well as providing the first little pump up.

This card seems to work well in some fun decks, but seems to be sorely lacking when talking competitiveness. It combo's well with lots of token generators such as Moneychanger, Dragon's Catheter, Berserker Corps, and Ferrous Ferret, but appears to slow for a truely competitive deck.

In limited, I'd rather have a good character although it may find its place, and in Constructed it just seems to be lacking.

Limtied: 2.5
Constructed: 2.5
