doc Shouldn’t “cards returning from the grave” have been the theme for the week of Halloween?

Anyway, today we look at the Banker character Resurrection Technician.

For a cost of 5 with a threshold of 2, you get a measly 2/3/2. So why bother with him? As his name foretells “When this card enters play, you may pick a character in your discard pile. If you do, put that character into your hand.”

Sure it’d be better if the character went directly into play, but hey, we can’t have everything! So what you do get is the ability to re-use a character and at least throw out a chump blocker for protection until you can get that newly revived character into play.

In limited, (just like Postmortem Debenture) getting back a key character can make a huge difference. In constructed, you’d probably use other means (like Postmortem Debenture) for recursion.

Limited: 4.5/5
Constructed: 3/5

This character isn’t exactly my favorite. My problems with it? It has pitiful stats for its cost. Sure it goes back and gets me another character, but in the mean time its not doing me any good. A dead blocker, but not much more. Of course it’s not terrible, especially when used with Erotic Assassin, but in general I’d rather be playing something that actually gets me ahead of the game instead of something that has the potential to get me something that will get me ahead of the game.

It’s much more powerful in Limited than Constructed. In Limited any character is valued and this guy’s stats don’t look half as bad. So a character that gets you another character? It’s going in my Sealed deck.

Limited: 4/5
Constructed: 2/5

If we manage to get equal averages again, I swear I’m going to find out where doc has the cameras hidden.
