The flexibility of the perk, ready or restore, is appreciated. Also two opportunities to trigger it at each story phase.

Considering the scarcity of playable 1-cost Hastur chars this is probably a 3/5 but I'd need to test it in several different decks to be sure.

I feel like he will combo really well with The Seventy Steps and Unending Festivities. Once he is ready he can go into a story, and if you can win both struggles (assuming it isn't a story with extra's of either), ready two of your characters to allow a snowballing effect and keep winning stories.

I like him at conspiracies that don't have arcane struggles but have multiple terror struggles. Send him to Opening Night or Raising of the Great Old Ones with some beefy terror friends. No worries about over committing to those stories. The Brother turns those extra terror struggles into pseudo-arcane struggles anyway.
