||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
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?
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.
