“cards returning from the grave” have been the theme
for the week of Halloween?
Anyway, today we look at the Banker character
For a cost of 5 with a threshold of 2, you get a

Sure it’d be better if the character went directly
into play, but hey, we can’t have everything! So

Postmortem Debenture) for recursion.
This character isn’t exactly my favorite. My

stats don’t look half as bad. So a character that
gets you another character? It’s going in my Sealed
