doc Today we have the uncommon Banker tactic Shocking Reappearance.

One of the few cards in The Spoils that has errata, this is a favorite Banker tactic. For a cost of 5 with a threshold of 3, you get the following (correctly erratted):

COST: Play this only while resolving a battle in which you were attacked. Pick a character in your discard pile.
EFFECT: Put the character into play under your control. Treat this character as a member of the blocking party. (You may play this card even if there currently is no blocking party.)

What does that mean? Anytime you’re attacking someone playing Greed who has 5 available resources, you might want to ask to see which characters are in their discard pile!

With the errata, you can play Shocking Reappearance during either of the steps of “How to Resolve a Battle” where you are allowed to play a tactic. So, if you’re staring at an attacking party with multiple speeds, you can choose to play Shocking Reappearance during step 2 or 7 allowing you to block the greatest amount of damage.

Be aware, cards that have abilities which trigger “If this card blocks” (Pettifogger) will not trigger because the card is added to the blocking party and never was declared a blocker.

In limited, if you’re already going to 3 threshold with Greed, it’s a keeper. In constructed, if you’ve got 3 Greed in your deck, you’ve got 4 Shocking Reappearances!

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 5/5
