Not So Fast


Ok, here's the thing about this card.  I know it's good - I'm just not sure if it's all that good.  At best I can see it stopping your opponent’s annoying Foiled from taking out your New Brotherhood a turn or two before you would like it to be gone.  Besides that the only other cards out there with a threshold cost of one or less that people play are Flying Kick and Burn Rubber.  Sure, both can be a thorn in your side, but is this card really worth a spot in your deck?  I don't think so, especially if you've got to discard to use the thing.


In a limited format, I can see people getting a little more use out of this card....there are more common low threshold plot twists lurking around that may become a nuisance...shake them off with this guy.



Overall – 2.0/5.0 …..oh gee it is Not So Fast…better look out….


Limited – 3.0/5.0 ……it isn’t the worst card you could pull….

Johnny Blaze Not So Fast

As an additional cost to play Not So Fast, discard a card. Negate target non-ongoing plot twist effect with a threshold cost of 1 or less. A threshold cost of 2 in order to play this plot twist and discard a card from your hand to negate a non-ongoing plot twist cost of 1 or less. Basically you are giving up 3 for 1 for this card. This card would have been a lot better if it could negate an ongoing plot twist of 1 or less. I could see this card being played in a defensive deck but there are a lot more cards that you can choose from that would better help your deck than this one. Most of the better non-ongoing plot twists have a higher threshold cost than 1 anyways.

Constructed: - 2.5/5
Limited: - 2/5
Paul Hagan Not So Fast --

When I first saw this card, I thought it was really, really limited in what it could do, and thus, was bad. Now, as the game has progressed, I realize that a *lot* of the cards that you have a tendency to worry about have a threshold cost of 1. Acrobatic Dodge, Flying Kick, and Overload all see a fair amount of play, making Not So Fast...well, um, Not So Bad. It still isn't the best card in the world, but its stock has risen since the game came out.

In limited, however, Not So Fast is Not So Good. Instead of being in your deck against popular cards, it turns into more of a crap shoot, and with only 30 slots in any limited deck to fill, Not So Fast generally shouldn't make the cut.
