Possible minor card recursion combo from a noobie.


Chuck a Snow Graves on your opponent's discard pile so they won't get the goodies. Do what Hastur does best, and revel as the loonies give you your At Night they Roams and Power Drains back! :D


I think I'm trying too hard. I just like the art.


Also, this might clog up your draw a bit if you send too many of your loonies kookoo in the same turn.

I've always felt Lomboso is best for keeping your opponent in a Control lock (once you manage to obtain it), by stopping them from drawing into solutions and only drawing the same cards over-and-over-again, as you repeatedly drive their characters insane via cards like Deranged Diva. Gives you the time to slowly grind away the stories you need for victory. 


On the bright side, he has decent icons for a Hastur 3 coster.

The thing that kills the card is the fact that it's a forced response.


However, if this were just a NORMAL response, this card would probably be an auto-include in all Hastur decks. Errata, plz.

Lomboso is a solid card, he doesn't need any errata.  But, that doesn't mean you can throw him into any deck at all.  Just as you would plan to include drive-insane abilities in a Lomboso deck, you want to consider the kinds of cards that are likely to hit your discard pile and which ones you'd want back.  You'll need to avoid putting in overly situational cards, and pay particularly attention to your low cost events.  Put in characters with good entering play abilities so you can use them, get them killed, and reuse them if it makes sense.  His ability rewards those who plan ahead.
