Helps negate some of the downsides of playing attachments, but there's a certain other unique Agency character that works with attachments better (James Logan). These are very different cards, though, and Mr. Price is the slower version despite costing less initially. Cycling through a bunch of 1-cost attachments (reduced to 0 by his ability) seems hilarious, but way too narrow to pull off reliably.

Card draw is always good, and as agency you are running attachments. I think this card is worthy of inclusion with just 1 attachment played on him.

A lot of players scorn the use of attachments because when you lose a character you lose 2 cards instead of 1. Agency are know as the faction for attachments because they offset this downside by having abilities that give card advantage for playing attachments. Cards like evidence locker, price manor, motor pool, JHP, Logan. In a faction with very little draw these cards are even better. What makes JHP stand out from these other cards is because he can double up on the card advantage.you gain a card by using motor pool / price manor when you put an attachment into your hand and you gain a 2nd card for the same attachment when you play it on JHP. You can even turn this into repeatable draw by using armoured car + dynamite as your attachments of choice. He's a solid character for an attachment heavy deck.

This guy screams to be the center of a deck, although I'm using him in a support role. Anyone found some juicy combos with John? Maybe an attachment that can return to hand, so you can play it on him for more card draw?  I guess putting him in with Dream Dagger (obviously) and Overworked Bureaucrat would give you a little recursive drawing ability, but it's still a pretty underwhelming combo.  There's got to be a dream combo (pardon the pun) that I'm missing, and I'm dying to know what it is.

what about John Henry Price + CrowbarClover Club Torch SingerCathouse ?

It's not fast or infinite or good for everything your opponent could play, but it's a cute combo

Yeah, Crowbar is a beautiful idea. Good one!
