FAQ 3.3

His icons aren't great, but drawing at least one extra card a turn is pretty good. Wedging him into stories is essentially "If you win the Arcane struggle, draw a card". Definitely a support card, and a good way to dig for cards you need.

Its a good card, I think its a weak choice for a restricted one though. I wouldn't want to face him + Festival together however, so I can see why its restricted. As such its going to lose out to Alternative Historian pretty much every time.

It's a great draw engine, especially when combined with standing effects. I doubt I'd choose it as my restricted card but otherwise it would be an auto include in my MU decks.
