That 0 or 1 cost character just became a tad bit more meaningful during the mid game. Imagine making some defend their Negotium Perambulans in Tenebris instead of ignoring it.

I _want_ to like it but in my experience, it doesn't work all that often or, if it does, make an actual difference.

Then again I recall losing a game against a deck using this and the 'Kitab Al Azif': http://www.cardgamed...al-azif-coc.jpg


But these are rather expensive tomes...

The cost puts me off, as does the fact that it only shuffles back into the deck by another Necronomicon coming into play, or by triggering itself, unlike most other Relics which shuffle back into the owner's deck when leaving play.
