doc After a great week’s vacation, I’m recharged and ready to continue telling the world about all the great cards in The Spoils! We start off 2007 with the Banker Tactic Postmortem Debenture.

As the least expensive & lowest threshold of any card in First Edition (yes you can play Zenobia’s Spyglass and Skewer for the same cost, but if you want anything out of them, you’ve got to pay the “X”) you get an effect that belies the cost. “Pick a character in your discard pile. Put the character into your hand.”

The only things that can stop it would be a correctly timed Catastrophic Betrayal or Tactician Vacation. Otherwise, you get your character back without sacrificing advantage; a.k.a., the self replacing card. Students of card advantage love this type of thing!

In Limited, getting back a key character is…well…key! In constructed, it’s almost like giving yourself an extra 4 copies of your main threat character, or at the very least, options, options, options. And after all, isn’t that what The Spoils is all about?

Limited: 4.5/5
Constructed: 5/5
lgmk Postmortem Debenture is the tech against Pluck and Catastrophic Betrayal. Postmortem Debenture is a free card.
Postmortem Debenture is the first card we're reviewing in the new year.

Gods my sense of humor needs work. In any case, Postmortem Debenture is an incredible card. For a cost of zero and a threshold of one you get to take a character in your discard pile and add it to your hand. I'd love to know why this costs zero when Remember costs three, but I'm not about to complain. This card means that for the cost of one card in hand and zero resources, a Banker deck can potentially get a character in play. That means you play this, get Erotic Assassin, and play it. And if you're using Gearsmith as well, that seems like a good time for 633fy 31f.

In almost any Banker deck, you should play it. If you get this in Sealed, you should be playing it if you have so much as a single Greed. If your store is out of Greed, proxy one. Its that useful. As far as one threshold Banker tactics go, this ranks right below Limited Liability.

Limited: 5/5
Constructed: 4.5/5
