Keep Faith
Reviews

Play this immediately before Rite of Sanctification in William Yorick or Tommy Muldoon, then enjoy the great economy. At some point you will stop needing the resources, but you can pay for your friends' cards, so this combo remains useful forever.

Also works in Father Mateo. — The_Wall · 231
With 'On Your Own' this costs 0 and is fast. Seems like an auto-include for that archetype. Having a lot of fun with it in my Ashcan Pete deck going through forgotten Age.. — Calprinicus · 2631

I'm eager to try this instead of Live and Learn in my solo Ashcan Pete deck. Con: Keep Faith is better early, and I would never mulligan for it when I really want Magnifying Glass, Peter Sylvestre, probably a Leather Coat or Bulletproof Vest, and maybe a Fire Axe. So at that point, I'd be counting on Keep Faith to come up early enough that it's impacting a large number of chaos bag pulls, but not so early that it's getting mulligan'd away. But compare to Live and Learn, which (for me) doesn't work all that well in practice - since you have lost whatever skill cards are committed to the test (unlike in Lucky), it has limited use on tough tests, and since you still suffer the consequences of the loss (again, unlike Lucky), it's useless against most treacheries. I'd maybe rather take a chance on having a bunch of +2s that might come up randomly compared to a single guaranteed +2 that's useless on harder and more consequential tests. This also aligns with the fact that some scenarios get tougher as they proceed, either by design (like a boss fight) or by nature (when time is running out, there's less margin for failed tests)... so even if you don't get the Keep Faith very early in the scenario, you're increasingly likely to get it as you approach the point in the scenario where you're more likely to need it. — mpinzur · 1

I think it's fair to say that, with most of the Innsmouth cycle completed, given all the later packs only include XP cards, that this is the best Bless Token generator at level 0. It's fast, so you only spend 1 card and 2 resources to get 40% of the maximum allowable tokens into the bag. Scrounge for Supplies and Resourceful can both get this back to you at the cost of an action. Preston Fairmont can take Ancient Covenant and pay for Leo De Luca very easily to afford Scrounging for this, though his Resourcefulness isn't quite as reliable (but can definitely work with some moderate boosting from a Mariner's Compass, Fire Axe, and/or Well Connected). William Yorick can take either the Ancient Covenant or the Sacred Covenant, and has access to both pools of Bless Token cards, including the resource saver Rite of Sanctification. Father Mateo can use this in combination with Blessing of Isis to trigger his Elder Sign ability way more consistently. I think the absolute top dog for this, though, is the rookie cop Tommy Muldoon, who can take almost any worthwhile Bless Token card in either of his classes and has the resource generation to back it up.

Worth noting also is that Tempt Fate is another level 0 card for Scrounging purposes, but with Keep Faith in the same deck, I see it being the more likely target. Still, Tempt Fate costs 0 instead of 2 and draws you a card, so having that option is nice. I doubt any Bless token deck wouldn't include both if it could (sorry Sister Mary).

It's less that it's the best and more that Keep Faith and Tempt Fate are realistically the *only* reliable ways to add blesses at 0xp, Sister Mary aside. — suika · 7574
Well Bless Blade and Book of Psalms are definitely meant to be primary generators, it seems, but they pale in comparison to Keep Faith imo. — StyxTBeuford · 12422

A Preston blessing deck is extremely viable, based on ancient covenant getting you to a 3 when you need it. And this card is the cornerstone. Unlike most characters with survivor access, cash aint an issue when it comes to playing it. Use resourceful on other investigators test to recur it.
