FAQ/Errata 3.0

So what is the combo with this that made it restricted? 


I wanted to put this in my Calling the Darkness deck, but I was wondering about being able to deal with the opponents AO.  Any ideas?

I don't know of a specific combo that made this card Restricted.  It might have just been that this card was ubiquitous, so they made it Restricted because they didn't want every deck throwing in a copy of it.  In terms of being able to deal with the opponent's AO, how about Azathoth?  That should take care of it.  Could run it in a MU deck that relies on speed, and when your deck is on the verge of stalling, pop Azathoth down for the final 2 success tokens.  Or, for that matter, after you drop Azathoth on your turn, follow it up with some weenies with Investigation icons.

Generally this card was used in ramp-up decks to fetch Nodens and basically reset the board once the AO player had a domain big enough to pump AOs consistently. It wasn't like a super combo, but it made it really difficult for rush decks to compete w AO spam, especially since resource acceleration hadn't been restricted and Peter Clover didn't exist.


Pre-errata Nug was another popular target.
