I like this card a lot in a deck that wants to make it Night ASAP. This lets you get some of those sweet Night cards going on turn one, which is big because many of those cards need time to really pay off.

She's pretty, she's wearing stockings, and she's not wearing shoes. 3 for 3.

Yeah. That deck also had Alternate Historian 3x for a restricted card, and thanks to Jeremiah she would always have a card or two ready to burn.

He can be quite wonderful. You almost never get your very best cards with him, but always good cards, and him triggering even once can make early resourcing a lot easier.

I've been using this fellow in a Miskatonic/Twilight deck with three copies of The Doorway (and a few other return-to-hand tricks) and lots of characters with "into play" effects. The number of (relatively controlled) draws he can supply is just sick!

Considered by itself, sure. But it can combo with The Marked and/or Hastur Lord of Carcosa to good effect, and if you already know that you want to build a domain to 4 for some other purpose, it might be worth a gamble.

Cards like this are always too expensive, especially since half of your opponent's guys are likely immune.

Sure you can. The wounds are payment for getting it out quicker.

I'm confused. Can u still not cast this as 6 and it not have the wounds?

Agreed.  There is no window in which you can trigger the response so the combo does not work.

Can't be wounded at stories. I refer you to the core rule book.

Can it not be turned insane?

That was my take as well.  It's the same reason you can't use Dr. Carson or Arkham Asylum to work around the built-in negatives of cards like Benjamin Herriot or Jean-Jacques Minot and still be able trigger their responses.

If I understand your combo properly... I'm not sure Master of Amulets can trigger Benjamin Herriot's response.  The Master of Amulets restores AND readies a character in the same action.  To use Benjamin's response it says to ready him after he's been restored.  Would Master of Amulet's ability work here?

 

I don't think Herriot's ability will work if he's been Master of Amuleted.

With Master of AmuletsBenjamin Herriot, Bedlam Boys, you can just need one Madness card to draw 30 cards additionally in one turn...it's too ridiculous!

He seems expensive for what he is, but only by 1. Since there are a lot of valuable Miskatonic characters at 4, I've been quite satisfied to include him in several decks.

This is one of those cards that is so bad, you have to read it twice just to make sure you're not missing something.

This card provides a huge assistance to Master of Amulets, a self-insane engine without paying resource.

I agree w/ Carthoris.  Whether one domain or many, you are draining all of them, and the rule says that in order to drain a domain to pay for playing a card you need a matching resource on that domain.

 

So, all the domains need a match, not just one - or at least that's how I read it.
