I'm going to be honest, I'm not entirely sure what were supposed to be doing here. I understand that we are ranking cards but other than that I'm confused lol!

It's easy, you can nominate one card from each faction each day. You can second someone else's previous nomination for 1 card in each faction each day. Cards that are seconded go in the top 10 list in the OP.

Miskatonic University:

1. alternative historian-there's a reason she has made it to the restricted list, she provides so much utility and has a great ability in a faction that can abuse it
2. lucas tetlow-another nerd with a great ability, he helps out against some of the games more powerful cards like khopesh and frozen time to name a couple
3. archaeology interns-great card drawing ability on an affordable body
4. obsessive insomniac-caaaaaaards! he can provide you with all the draw you'll ever need. he's also on the restricted list for a reason
5. dr. laban shrewsberry-he helps the nerds deal with ancient ones and any other villainous nasties

David Pan, Stygian Eye and Burrowing Beneath have already been seconded, so they shouldn't be on the nominate list...

Someone else vote to remove Immurement. It's an "alright" card at best.

If support cards are a real problem for you then Melisande / Thief are just as good.

If you really REALLY hate support cards you can saplsh Shub for Burrowing / Thunder

Problem is how to rate cards like this. It's a top card in mono-syndicate, but it sucks if you combine it with other factions that have cards that solve problems (e.g. Yog)

It's not really a top card in mono though, (edit on previous post to provide alternatives)

It costs you your best resource. You can't fudge it either, it's "best domain or not at all" Late game I'll be damned if I'm paying 3 or even 4 for it to remove a 1 cost support card AND giving my opponent a resource.

It doesn't only target support cards though. And late game as you mentioned I'm more than willing to use by best domain (no matter how high it is) to get rid of the most annoying card my opponent has. Late game usually doesn't matter if I give him a resource on a domain either. I'd rather have it there than the graveyard ready to be recurred.

I think it's great in mono and one of the best syndicate cards...

I tend to agree with this. It really more dictates your deck-building than anything since to get the best use out of it you should have even domains, which usually means multiple domains at 2. It is very good in a rush deck, even bi-faction, provided you resource correctly. I'm not sure it's top 10, but it's good. Probably top 20.

I've only ever considered it a support killer - problem characters for me are easily dealth with by a blow to the back of the head with a crowbar :)

Everyone is wanting to remove immurement but I want to second immurement. The card def deserves a spot on the top 10 list imho. The first time you immurement a khopesh to save your team from being slaughtered you will think differently on this card.

remove Immurement.

I want to second immurement. The card def deserves a spot on the top 10 list imho.

So there is some debate around this card. Since it received three votes to remove it, it will be removed. For now, cards that are removed by 3 votes will not be put back on.

We will revisit later. We'll have to decide on a democratic way to deal with it once we see what else goes on the list.
