judgment day. Today we look at the uncommon Banker
tactic Summary Judgment.
Once again, we visit one of the main sub-themes in
the Banker trade, draw. For a cost of 4 with a
splashable threshold of 2, you could draw your deck
out. Granted, that’s highly unlikely and would
necessitate your opponent having a beatstick of
enormous proportions (depending on the number of
cards in your draw pile), but it is possible. So
would you be happy drawing 4-7? Much more reasonable
and probable, I know. When the standard for drawing
a card is The Tournament Faction’s Draw ability at a
cost of 3, paying at a rate of 1:1 or less is HUGE!
How is it you get to draw all of these cards? Well
actually, there’s no guarantee you’ll get any of
them… You might just have to settle with destroying
one of your opponent’s characters. Oh wait, that’s
not such a bad thing either, now is it? Here’s the
skinny: Pick one of your opponent’s characters. They
choose to either let you destroy it or draw a number
of cards equal to the character’s strength.
Seems like a win/win situation to me!
One thing to be aware of though, is that in response
to Summary Judgment your opponent can destroy the
character you picked as part of a cost or effect of
an ability or tactic they have, and still choose to
destroy the character even though it’s no longer in
play, and you get 0 cards.
In both limited and constructed, having one card
that can be used as removal or draw power is
