Aspiring Artist (F12)
Aspiring Artist should have a skill of 0,
no icons, and read: “Response: After
playing Aspiring Artist, draw1 card...”

and still only no stories won, such an awful card now...
why all: skill to 0, no book and one less card... too much nerf hammer, he doesnt do anything usefull now. with even one of those he would be okish, now hes useless
I don't concur on Aspiring Artist now that he's been nerfed beyond recognition. He replaces himself at this point, and that's about it. Compare him to Alternative Historian.

The nerfed version of Aspiring Artist isn't worth the cardboard it's printed on, much less a card slot. They really went to town on this one.To be fair, in today's world his original incarnation might as well be okay again. Without bouncing it doesn't get absurd, and even if: Explorers draw so many more cards if they get going with Roald Elsworth.
