Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe his effect doesn't happen if no one goes to stories.

It'd be nice to play with Bone Sculptor and pull it out right before you commit.

You're targeting the player though. You can "Choose an opponent" regardless of whether they control a character or not.

It doesn't say "if able," so I think not. You can't just use the Temple to sacrifice one of your own green guys with no further effect.

This can affect how you opponent commits to attack just by being out on the board. It's not a very efficient character, but it's purpose is more as a deterrent. I've always wanted to fit it in my decks, but it always gets cut, so I'd love to hear if others had success with it.

Can you trigger it's ability even if your opponent doesn't control any characters?

Yeah, as far as I'm concerned, this card is primarily valuable as a cheap way to get 2 investigation icons. If the Response comes off, that's gravy. In an Explorer deck, it's lovely with Ultima Thule: no matter which comes into play first, it will help the other.

Yeah, I used it in an Explorer deck back when it was released. Not for its ability but just to boost the number of Explorers in my deck. Now, there's a few better options.

I tried this previously in a Cthulhu/MU deck using Flooded Vault and Khopesh, along with Sword of Y'ha-tallo. The theory was when i either play or use Flooded Vault, I can trigger the Trailblazer, so I can dig out one attachment, and hopefully pull the other.

Then, use Elijah Conrad to recycle the Vaults.

 

In practice, I was using my domains to play things, so never really wanted to trigger the effect, or be able to.

Because it's rather situational, you really need to build your deck around this theme for the card to work.  There are no cards which are both Locations and Attachments, so you need substantial numbers of two different types of cards in the deck to be worthwhile, especially since you're paying 1 to trigger the ability.

 

However, being both an Explorer and Student offers some synergy you could try to capitalize on and make it more worth including.  Likely the best home is in a mono-MU Explorers deck which already has some Locations you probably want to include.

This is supposed to take the place of the restricted Museum Curator, perhaps. But it ends up being too many stipulations on the effect. You need this in play, you need a location, and then an attachment. Maybe I can see this in a char-lit combo deck. It is an explorer so maybe in an explorer deck too, since it's not uncommon to have Infirmary, Atwood Science Hall, or The Hall School in that mono-MU build, but then what attachments would you run?

Amazing card for Syndicate decks. Being able to bring it back from the discard pile with some in faction options can make it exceptionally good.

Can this be played after your opponent (or you) commit and before struggle resolution?

Yes! And that's why I consider this better than David Pan's ability: You can play it as a surprise action whenever your opponent has a weak moment. It still works best with Syndicate decks, but there's a place for it in every deck that features a few high-skill characters.

It's mostly used in Syndicate skill manipulation based decks, where you use this in addition to Mr. David Pan because one Unique guy can't be everywhere.

Syndicate, I guess? It's not like they really need it with characters with David Pan around, who basically puts every story in a Parallel Universe.

 

I don't see other factions get enough Skill on the table on a reliable basis, and with Miskatonic (2nd most skill, I guess) you're probably better off with some alternative struggle manipulations.

It's Mr. David Pan in attachment form! Not quite as versatile as a character who sticks around to win more than one story, but I think Parallel Universe can be pretty appealing to a high-skill stable of characters, in addition to the Syndicate's own skill-reduction tricks. Add in Marine Salvager to pull Parallel Universe back, and make it a crisis on multiple earths.

But if Fiona comes into play due to being dormant on a story that was just won... Can I use her disrupt?

 

That's basically what this card is for, yes. You tend to play those cards for free, but you still *play* them. (Keep the Steadfast in mind, which would not matter if it were a put-into-play effect).

Sorry if I'm the last person to get this one... But if Fiona comes into play due to being dormant on a story that was just won... Can I use her disrupt?

Also, is it just me or could this card have been called Ada Lovelace? (Would be nice to see some more scientists, Charles Babbage anyone?)
