I have this card in a Silver/Miskatonic deck I've designed, mostly because it seems like it's intended to go with Explorers (which the deck uses heavily).  My only hesitation is this effect might never pay off.  I have Ultima Thule and Master of the Myths in there, but they don't trigger TBS until the end of the phase.  I have Professor George Angell in there, but I can only have 1 of him out at a time because he's obviously unique.  Maybe this isn't a good fit.  Maybe TBS should be in a deck with Khopesh where you can blank characters with Toughness and blanking characters with Willpower allow the Cthulhu characters to utilize their Terror icons.


Does anyone have any recommendations?

It sure works with Initiate of Huang Hun for operations phase shenanigans. But The Doorway makes it shine during the story phase when you may really want it.

Good points.  I'm just not sure I see a specific use for this card in ST.  It seems like it needs to be paired up with something like Khopesh, where you have a specific plan for how you'd use the Black Stone.  


Does ST typically struggle with opposing text boxes?  I know Hastur does (Willpower), Agency decks might (Toughness/Invulnerability), but I don't typically think of blanking as something that ST badly needs.  MU doesn't seem to need it either, even though the Black Stone clearly has synergy with Explorers.


I thought maybe I was just missing the connection.
