Kingsley - 1/5
Repeat after me: Opponent's choice effects are bad. Opponent's choice effects are bad. Opponent's choice effects are bad. Contingency Plan is better than this for dishonoring people out and Contingency Plan is awful. If dishonor becomes super real you might run both this and Contingency Plan, but that's not where the meta seems to be right now.

nyxnyxnyx - 3/5
When an opponent chooses honor, they effectively lower your honor bid value by 1. When they choose Fate, it’ll be when you most need the honor/dishonor. Not a terrible card by any means, but not really advantage-generating like you want your cards to be. 

Grendel - 1/5
A worse contingency plan. It never does what you want it to do when you want it to do it. If you run this for the honor hit, you should run contingency plan aswell/instead.

I Fight Dragons – 2/5
Similar to Contingency Plan, this card is just for the very specific honor/dishonor oriented decks. Unfortunately, your opponent gets to choose what you get, so it never gets you exactly what you wanted and that holds it back. There’s an argument for cycling with this card, but Rebuild + Storehouse does it better and faster than Levy.

I find the comparison to Contingency Plan to be crazy. With Contingency Plan, you are using a card AND denying yourself a card draw. That's a 2 card cost for the same benefit. By comparison, I'd rather give my opponent the chance to choose Fate than pay double.

Yes, Kingsley and Grendel's comments don't make any sense.

 

At worst, this card shrinks your deck by a card, which is not terrible.  Whether that draw is leading or lagged depends on whether you bid a little higher early in order to draw it (a little riskier, but with 3x, you'll still probably see it frequently), or bid a little higher after you play it to replace it.  At best, this card finishes off a dishonor victory.  Somewhere in the middle - if they give you Fate instead of honor, that's pretty great - I'll take a 2 Fate swing for 1 card any time.

Very nice card, it lets you steal honor when you need it. (Free Air ring yay!)
