Doom deck is all about defense, and that means
getting good plot twists, and getting them in
your hand. This card is an absolute must
for that. I simply can not fathom a doom
deck without it. In a non-doom deck, where
it is playable, it's only okay. It's
moderate search at best.
In limited, it's
tremendous - I would play it every time, Doom or
no. the ability to look for quality and
can discard junk if you find it makes this card
way too good.

This Location has found it's way into the Dr.
Doom decks as a method of getting to their
Locations more quickly. It's an excellent
add, and thinning your deck is never a bad
idea. In limited, it really isn't worth the
space. You'd have to have a lot of worthwhile
locations, plus Dr. Doom to even make it
work. Just skip this one.

A nice card to let you replace useless weak
characters, or duplicates of a character, with
the plot twists that you need. The Dr. Doom
deck relies on a few crucial plot twists, so
being able to get to them faster is a very
In limited, once again, you will have fewer
plot twists to get to, and less extraneous
cards to throw away for them. Not something I
would consider playing.
Cerebro, this card is some good. The ability
to tear through your deck on the hunt for a
Plot Twist is worth having, especially in a
deck like Doom, which utilizes a lot of
*really good* plot twists (see: Faces of Doom,
Gamma Bomb, Flame Trap).
The drawback to Doom's
Throne Room, however, is that unlike Cerebro,
a majority of your deck is not Plot Twists,
meaning you are likely to whiff on occassion.
You are also often looking for a specific
twist, so chances are that you might get
something you don't need.
In limited, I might be
tempted to play this if I had some quality
plot twists and five or six Doom characters.
However, it would be card number 29 or 30 to
slide into my deck.
