doc Today we have more cards coming out of the discard pile with the Arcanist Tactic Remember.

Talk about limitless possibilities! For a cost of 3 with only 1 threshold, Remember is much like yesterday’s card Postmortem Debenture. For all intents and purposes, Remember can be 4 more of your favorite Tactic card or a discard pile tutor for the Tactic you need in any given situation.

Paired with the lowest cost Tactics to better able you to play the returned card the same turn you play Remember, I give you these possibilities: Ritual of the Screaming Cheese (for a total cost of 5 they choose 4 to discard or randomly lose 2..or a combo), Postmortem Debenture (for a cost of 3 get 2 Characters back into your hand), Meager Research (for a cost of 5 your opponent gets 2 random cards, you tutor for the 2 you want of the types he gets), Research Investment (for a cost of 3 you (and your opponent) get 6 resources from your deck into play), Yoink! (for a cost of 5 you get 2 items), Bask Bomb (for a cost of 3 and the loss of 2 Characters, blow up a BUNCH of defending Characters).

All well worth it!

In limited, you’re always looking for multiples of great cards. In constructed, you can tech in fewer copies of various Tactics and be better prepared for all situations.

Limited: 4.5/5
Constructed: 5/5
 
lgmk Remember is to tactics what Postmortem Debenture is to characters except it has a value greater than zero in the upper left corner. How much of a difference can three resources make?

A whole heck of a lot it turns out. Two things make Remember inferior to Postmortem Debenture. 1. It has a real cost and 2. its for tactics. The cost is an obvious inferiority, the tactic vs. character situation isn't as clear. While it is hypothetically possible to win with tactics alone, it would be very, very hard and require an obedient opponent as well as the luck of the gods. While you can get important cards such as character destruction it simply isn't as useful as Postmortem Debenture. In constructed it will help you recover one of tactics, such as the bomb tactics, that have been lost to mill or discard. Beyond that...

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 2.5/5
