Scientific Theory

Who Wants This?

First, this must be compared to Higher Education, as that gives you better pump rates for , Seeker's primary strength, and is a Permanent. If you take this, it's for the boosts.

So who wants this? Let's glance at the list:

But what about...Roland Banks! Sure...if he had any money. Maybe if you went with a clue-intensive Roland build with Dr. Milan and Scientific Theory. I think his Replacement cards from The Dirge of Reason would fit nicely into this deck. But Roland also gets by in low player counts by just picking up clues through his ability + cheats like Art Student and Working a Hunch.

The last thing I can think of is to use this in scenarios that want you to make checks for things other than clues - Where Doom Awaits and The Last King come to mind.

Overall, this card's time has not yet come. I expect we'll get a gator that has some fighting chops, and this will be a great include in that gator's deck.

Acidic Ichor is a consideration here. Hitting with Acidic Ichor on Expert can be tricky (6 Combat is a great start, but not enough), and the card is rewarding enough that you might be willing to run other cards to support it. That said, I agree, this card doesn't have much appeal for most Seekers. — CaiusDrewart · 976
It is also alright in a weird Carolyn build. But yeah, it is probably waiting for the Seeker fighter type. — Myriad · 563
